A Gift for You and Your Husband – A Year of Questions

I love questions.

So I created a little gift for y’all. It’s a year’s worth of questions for couples.

Free Download: A Year of Questions for You and Your Spouse

It’s a pdf. You can “right click” on the above link and save to your computer or just click on the link and it will open in your browser.

Print it out, cut the questions into strips and put them all into a container (I used an almond container from Costco). Pull out a question a day to spark conversation between you and your spouse.

If a question does not apply to you or your spouse, just reframe the question so that it does. Change the “what” or the “who.”

I encourage you to create your own rules. Many of these questions are better answered if there is no limit on time, money, etc. This gives more room for options and imagination (I’d love to have advice from Florence Nightingale and live in Italy!).

When the answer revolves around people, you may want to give the option of adding “in addition to” or “other than my spouse.” And, honestly, I think it’s OK to change questions, add questions, give information not asked for, and so on.

The idea behind the questions is to give you and your spouse a starting place for conversation and learning more about each other.

Please remember to speak the truth in love and listen well.

  1. This is awesome! Thank you so much. I’ll be sharing with my friends on Facebook and with the women’s Bible study I’m leading. Blessings to you!

  2. Whoops, I thought this was your hubby’s blog. I subscribe to both, but this is great, Lori. And again, I’m going to share it on FB. :)

  3. Lori, I LOVE this and would love to share it on Happy Wives Club. If you ever feel like tweaking the post (since we can’t have the same post on two sites) for the HWC audience, I think it would instantly become very popular and spread like wildfire (almost all of our marriage posts are shared between 1-5K times). Give it a think as I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this (and will do this with my own hubby :)).

  4. Sounds like a great way to get out of a rut and talk with our spouse about things beyond the routine. Thanks for taking the time to create this list and offer it to others. And thanks for linking to TGIF. So glad to have quality posts like this at the “party.”
    Bless you,
    Gail

  5. Thank you for the gift!! Most people would charge for this (and there’s nothing wrong with that) but you’re building up the Kingdom of God when you offer something that enriches marriages. And you do a lot more “enriching” when it’s free and accessible to more people :) Thank you and God bless you for the gift!

  11. The link isn’t working for the download for some reason. Is there still a way to get the questions? Thank you!
