Day 1:
We’re linking up this month with one of my favorite blogs Nesting Place, joining her and no doubt countless others in a 31 Day Series. The Nester herself will be writing on a single topic for 31 Days and has challenged us to come up with a 31 Day topic of our own. This is bold for us because, as you know, we usually post about once a week. Still, we thought it would be a fun challenge to post something about marriage every day for 31 days. Timely, too, since this week we are celebrating our ONE YEAR BLOGAVERSARY! … I know that’s not a word, but I just used it and you knew what I meant, so maybe it is a word after all. I mean, who knows how words are formed anyway? It’s a mystery.

So, welcome to …

31 Days of Loving on Purpose

We’ve taken inspiration from Rick Warren’s timeless book The Purpose Driven Life. The very first line of the very first chapter really says it all: “It’s not about you.” Warren goes on to say, “The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness.”

Let that sink in. We believe you could substitute the word “life” with “marriage” so that the same statement would read, “It’s not about you. The purpose of your marriage is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness.”

This month we’ll be encouraging you to think about your marriage, as we think about ours, as something much greater than a selfish endeavor. We’ll be trying out new ways to love our spouse on purpose and to invest our lives fully into the vows we once made. Instead of floating through married life, we will practice being intentional with one another on a daily basis.

Stay tuned over the next 31 days and see if you aren’t more happily united with your partner by the end of this month and more committed than you’ve ever been to #staymarried.

  1. So excited to have stumbled across your blog post on fb! (Gottman page if you are interested – I included the link in the website space above:) I have been married to my wife for just less than a year, but together for over 6 years. We are happy and fulfilled, but I have browsed your blog and I think we are going to make it a practice to read these each day. I am all about happiness, strength and learning. Thank you for sharing!

    ps: I know its probably not important, but I was excited to see where you lived! I went to Bastyr and lived in Kenmore for many years. It is nice to know I had amazing neighbors <3

  2. Thank you for your blog. I just stumbled upon it today, but it has already been such a help to me and my husband. We thought we were doomed to divorce, but your sight actually has been helping us to explore faithful ways to grow closer and work through things together. Thank you again!
