A Challenge for 2014
I want you to have a better marriage. It’s what drives me; it’s why I do what I do on-line. I want you to feel deeply loved and deeply in love. I want you to enjoy your wife in every way possible – including a fantastic sex life.
To advance that goal, I’m challenging you to a year of effort for a better marriage. One year of doing everything you possibly can to make your marriage better. One year of focusing more on you than on your wife – no matter what she needs to change in her life. One year of making her feel loved, appreciated, and respected. One year of giving without worrying about what you get in return.
Why would you do this?
- Because it’s the right thing to do.
- Because it has a very high chance of resulting in a better marriage for both of you.
- A year from now you’ll know if your marriage can be improved.
It’s not going to be easy. You’ll have to fight habits, selfishness, and self-doubts. It will take a great deal of courage and hard work. This is not an easy fix and it’s not for the faint of heart.
Are you up for the challenge?
I bring this up now so you have some time to think and pray about it. I will mention it a couple more times before kicking it off in January. I’m praying that for many of you 2014 will be the year your marriage changes for the better!
