Are Your Ready to…Revive Your Marriage?

Revive Your Marriage Series

Summer is over – the kids are back in school (or about to be), and we women need to make sure this year is awesome! And the best way to do that is to put first things first. So…

It’s time to…Revive Your Marriage!

Sometimes we need a little boost and when we have friends on our journey – it’s a lot more fun!!!

I’ve joined three bloggy friends who all write amazing stuff on marriage for the month of September, when we’ll be writing encouragement and challenges to revive your marriage!

Courtney from WomenLivingWell, Darlene from, and Jennifer from (along with me, of course), will be writing on the same topic every Monday, starting next week! Go to their blogs for MORE encouragement and to get to know these great writers.

Here’s how Courtney introduces our purpose:

Do you feel like you need some rekindling in the marriage department? Like your friendship with your husband has gotten lost in the shuffle with bills, kids activities and the busyness of life? Do you feel like you need a fresh perspective to help adjust your attitude towards your husband? Does your time in the bedroom with your man need some spicing up? {*Blush*} Oh ya – we’re going there!!! Prayer – prayer is a key to reviving your marriage.

Join us next Monday, September 3rd as we begin the “Revive Our Marriage” Series.

Each week we will include a devotional and a CHALLENGE!

And you’ll be able to link up your own posts and encourage us, too! To get you ready to do that, here’s the topic schedule that we’re going to cover:

September 3rd – Revive Your Prayers

September 9th – Revive Your Attitude

September 16th – Revive Your Friendship

September 23rd – Revive Your Praise

September 30th – Revive Your Sex Life

So come on over just to read the posts, or, if you have a blog, write your own and link up! There will be a linky every week, too.

**Just to clarify: All four of us will be writing on our own blogs every Monday on the same topic (but in our own unique voices). We will all share the same challenge for the week and the link-up will be shared – meaning when you link up here on To Love, Honor and Vacuum – it will show up on the other 3 blogs as well!

And now, I just want to take a moment to introduce myself to all of the people coming over from the other three blogs today. I’m Sheila. I’m the mom to two teenage girls, and one little boy who would have been 16 earlier this month, had he not passed away. I’ve been married to an awesome man for almost 21 years, and we just got back from Italy from a three week overdue twentieth anniversary trip (hey, regular readers, that’s why I haven’t been responding to comments! But I’m back now!)

Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex

Still 30% off at Amazon!

The original title for this blog was To Love, Honor and Vacuum: When you feel more like a maid than a wife and a mother, based on a book I wrote a few years ago. But over the last two years this blog has come to focus more and more on marriage, and specifically sex, with the release of my book The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex. And so stick around and look at some of my posts! Or check out my 29 Days to Great Sex challenge!

I hope you all enjoy this Revive Your Marriage series. I’m already planning my posts, and I’m excited to join such a great group of bloggers. This time of year we’re often overwhelmed with school and new starts to jobs or volunteer commitments, but let’s not forget that the marriage is the centre of the whole family. Let’s give our best energy to our marriages, and then everything else will go much more smoothly!

    I am looking forward to this! I still do not know how to do the blog buttons or the linking though. Any suggestions from anyone?

    • The linking up is easy! Just click on “click to enter” and then you can enter the URL of the post that you want to link up.

      The blog button you can just copy. Just right click, choose “save image as…”, and then download it. I’ll try to get the actual code in a little box that you can just copy and paste soon!

  2. I am so looking forward to the new series! I know that this will minister to my heart.
