Happy Hour


It’s the Friday before Christmas, and what better way to celebrate than to share some blog love?

Happy Hour has become a favored tradition with our readers because there is so much great marriage content on the internet these days. However, we know it’s hard to find the time to read them all yourself. This is why we like to go through them for you and highlight the ones we think are worth your time.

  • First, our featured post on the Engaged Marriage blog provides a couple of great romantic ideas to help you bless your spouse this Christmas season.
  • Second, we want to re-introduce you to Marriage Missions International. They are Steve and Cindy Wright whom we’ve had the privilege of meeting in person. We instantly became close–and now, years later, we count it a blessing any time we can spend together on Skype. They live in Arizona and we’re in Florida, so our time together physically isn’t possible. They’re about to revamp their entire website making it easier to navigate as well as allowing advertisers to partner with their ministry. What we love most about MMI is how they are spreading help and hope to marriages all over the globe. Their stats are staggering and we believe it is because they have been faithful for nearly two decades to provide Biblical Truth on every topic, trial and season  known to marriage. And they make it easy to find what you’re looking for. Here’s a shot of their topics list…

  • Third – Journey To Surrender is doing a series on Avoiding The Christmas Crazies. We’re figuring you’re starting to feel the pressure about now. Why not take a few minutes and at least read the main points of his series. It may be just what you need to keep from overload.
  • One Flesh Marriage provided a Christmas Gift Guide To Grow Your Marriage a few weeks ago that is excellent. Make sure that you’re investing in those things that will last. It is our desire as well as all of the blogs represented here to see your marriage last. But not only last, but excel at glorifying God. It is possible, but it takes intentionality–buying and reading great resources is a good start!

Finally, don’t forget there’s still time to enter for one of three copies of an upcoming best-seller by Gary Chapman and Harold Myra titled, Married, And Still Loving It! Entering is easy–just comment to this post telling us what you think it takes to make a marriage last. That’s it! We’ll close the contest midnight Sunday night. Three winners will receive a free copy of the book when published in January via snail mail.

Have a blessed weekend enjoying all that Christ has done for us.

    You have to be intentional about your marriage. It is when people don’t make their marriage a priority in your mind it starts to become just something that is just there.

    Marriage requires grace & commitment. We have to receive Christ’s grace & offer & receive it from our spouse. And we must be committed to growing in grace each day we are blessed to partner in a one flesh relationship called marriage.
