Ice Skating…

The date idea for this month and the family time idea is to go to the ice skating rink. This is so much fun, especially during the holiday season.

Holiday Cheer…

The date idea for this month is to do something festive for the holidays with your loved one. Go to the ice skating rink, visit the mall (enjoying the decorations and cheer), or anything else you can think of that might be fun! You can use this same idea for your family time as well, enjoying the holiday season and spending quality time with the ones you love!

Spending Quality Time…

We would like to encourage you to take time out to spend with your loved one and your family. It is not about the quantity of time, but rather the quality time you have with them. Life can be busy and you might have many responsibilities before you. However, carving out time to interact with the people you love can make all the difference. So next time you’re with your spouse and your children put down the cell phone and any other distractions, focusing completely on your family time. This will not only be beneficial for the ones you love, but it will be uplifting for you as well!

Being Spontaneous…

This month the date idea is to be spontaneous. Get out of the rut of your routine and do something different. Take your loved one out to do an activity that you both haven’t tried before but want to try, go to a new restaurant, and so on! The main idea is to try something new and to have fun with it! Anthony and I have been bike riding and it has been so much fun. This is a new activity we started doing and we love it!¬†This same idea applies to your family. Do something new and exciting with them. Pick an activity you can all try to together and have a blast doing it!

Time With Loved Ones/Seek The Lord…

We would like to encourage you to seek the Lord about your relationships and how He desires for you to carry them out. Think about your spouse, your family, and friends. Take a moment to self-evaluate and do an inventory check of your own behaviors and attitudes towards the loved ones in your life. Then, ask the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, and direct you in all of your interactions with them. Ask Him to show you how you can be a better spouse, friend, parent, and family member. As you seek the Lord in this He will speak to your heart and give you insight and understanding.

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God” (1 John 4:7).

Time With Loved Ones…

Today we want to encourage you to spend time with the ones you love. The date idea for this month is to go out to dinner with your spouse and spend time communicating. Many couples forget that proper communication is so important in a marriage; communicating how much you love and care for the person you’re with is vital. Additionally, communicating other feelings, thoughts, and ideas are important also. The one you’re married to should be the person you can confide in and who confides in you also. So take a step in this direction today to communicate, and be open to hear what your spouse has to share as well. This will enrich your lives and marriage!

Also, we want to remind you to take time for your family and especially for your children. This month pick an activity you all enjoy and make time to do it! Come together and decide as a family. It is so uplifting to be with the people in your life that you care about; and sharing a fun activity together makes it even better! Remember; have fun!!!

Time With Loved Ones…

Today we want to encourage you to spend time with the ones you love. The date idea for this month is to take a walk with your spouse. This is not only a time of exercise, but also a time for you to talk and spend quality time together!

Also, we want to remind you to take time for your family and especially for your children. This month try not to focus as much on the activity, but on the ones before you. Ask your loved ones how they’re feeling and how they’re doing. Sometimes it means more to a person to know you care and that you are there if they need you then anything else. Keep it simple, loving, and caring!

Have Fun…Again!

The date idea this month is to take your spouse out to do something you did when you were dating. Think back when you first met and all you could think about was being together. Often in life couples get caught up in the busyness of their daily routine and forget to carve out time for each other. Take time out to do something you remember doing early in your relationship, and have fun!

Time & Communication…

The Bible teaches us that husbands should honor their wives and treat them kindly so that their prayers will not be hindered (1 Peter 3:7). The date idea this month is; take time out to plan a special date for the woman in your life and make an effort to make her feel special. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, but kind and thoughtful. Ladies, if your reading this and thinking; “I wish my husband would do this,” then pray to the Lord to speak to your husband’s heart, and think of what you could do for him as well.

You can start the trend and take your husband to do something fun that he would enjoy. Remember, an important aspect of marriage is giving and communication. Being willing to do something kind for the one you love, and the exercising of proper communication is vital. If there is something on your heart that you want to speak with your spouse about, then you should. When you go to them, do it in love, not accusation and keep the lines of communication open. Also, don’t forget the fun in your relationship. So think of something exciting and thoughtful and make a date of it!!!

Spending Time…

This month instead of recommending a specific date idea, we want to encourage you to spend time together in general. It doesn’t have to be a designated or formal date time. It can be anything that you enjoy doing together, or just watching television or a movie with one another. People are very busy with work, children, and other obligations. Often this doesn’t leave a lot of time for their spouse. The more quality time you spend with your loved one the closer you can become.

It is so important to make time to show the person in your life how much you love and care for them. Often couples forget to show their spouse love in the way that they enjoy. For instance, if the person in your life loves when you cook for them, then make an effort to do this. Or if they like when you do a specific activity with them, then set a time for you both to do that activity together. Whatever it is, make sure you make it a priority to make them happy. It starts with you. Don’t be demanding of your spouse. Give to them first and ask the Lord to move in their heart to give back to you in the way you enjoy as well. Remember, have fun!!!
