MHR Inspiration #4

Happy New Year !!!

I hope that you all had safe and enjoyable celebrations last night!


The first day of a new year always fills me with excitement and possibility! And it is not often that you hear the new year discussed without mention of New Year's Resolutions. With that in mind, I would like to recommend the following article:

Make 2009 the Best Year of Your Marriage by Dr. David Hawkins


By way of reminder:

1) Writing to the prompt is not required. We are not really all about adding more rules and regulations, lol!

2) Writing to the prompt is not a reflection of trouble in your marriage. Anyone who is honest with themselves would agree that marriage is not always easy, and as such, creating a weekly post about the object of your affection, and sometimes frustration, can be difficult as well. The purpose of having the prompts, articles, and quotes in these posts is to help us to think about our spouses from a positive perspective - even when we don't feel like it.


Prompt/Theme for Friday, January 2, 2009

What are some practical thinks that you plan to do in the coming year to show your love and respect for your spouse? What are some habits/behaviors that you would like to foster in your life to improve your marriage?

Although writing to the prompt is definitely not required, I would encourage you to put some thought into these. We will be revisiting them throughout the year, and I think that these have the potential of being very powerful for our marriages.



  1. Thanks for the prompt, Katy Lin! I have just the idea...
