14 Day Love & Respect Challenge

For those of you that don’t follow Wifey in Training you should because she’s so cute.

I was reading her post yesterday about a 14 day Love & Respect Challenge she found at the Women’s Marriage Ministry.

It is a 14 day challenge to help strengthen your relationship with your husband (in my case, fiancé but never to early to start right?) and it sounds so so cool.

Read about it here and join in on the challenge! Really- what do you have to lose?

Lesson #1 - Tonight or tomorrow when your spouse comes home, greet them at the door. Don't yell from another room. Physically meet them at the door. Let them know that you missed them today. (even if you didn't) I have started doing this with Adam & he absolutely loves it. Honestly, so do I. I feel much more special when I feel that everyone is happy to see me. If this is not possible to do it this way due to your schedules, then be sure to make him feel like you missed him & you are happy to see him when you are face to face.

While D and I don’t live together- I’m learning from this lesson what I can. I need to work on showing him how excited I am to see him, and that I miss him when he’s not around. I think sometimes I take him for granted (ahem I know I do). This weekend, he walked from the Academy to my apartment (roughly 2 miles each way) because his car was stuck and he wanted to spend the day with me. He had frost all around his face and he was FREEZING the entire time. If that’s not true love I don’t know what is!

So I invite you all to read the Women’s Marriage Ministry blog and take from these lessons what you can- like I said before- what have you got to lose?

Happy Tuesday :)



  1. sooo sweet!! i remember my mom telling me that my dad missed it when as kids, we stopped running to the door when he got home from work...i imagine it's a similar feeling to have an excited spouse :)
