Because Marriage Matters {July Recap}

Things we did in July because Marriage Matters via

Each Monday I post a picture on Instagram with a snapshot of something we do because marriage matters. You can read more about why we do this on my first Marriage Matters post. Having a strong and happy marriage doesn’t just happen – it takes work!

Each month when I share my roundup, I also like to share a blog post that really spoke to me concerning marriage. Bekah’s post titled The Fight gave me seven practical things I can do to intentionally build up my marriage. And doesn’t the title just make you want to click over there and see what she and her husband fought about? I know you do. 🙂

Here’s a recap of my #MondayMarriageMatters posts from July!

If you didn’t figure it out from the post about things being made bearable by love, I’ll go ahead and tell you that this wasn’t a particularly warm and fuzzy month for us. There were some rough moments where we had to remind each other that we’re on the same side! 🙂 Marriage is work, and work isn’t always fun or pleasant. At the end of the day (or the month), I’m still extremely thankful to be married to my husband. I love him more today than I did yesterday, and I’m ready for another month of choosing to bear all things and holding him forever in the light!

I hope you’ll join in the #MondayMarriageMatters challenge – of course you don’t have to post it on Instagram unless you choose to do that, but I love seeing what you share! There are over 100 posts under the #MondayMarriageMatters hashtag – head over there for some great marriage advice!

Take a moment this week and do something special for your marriage – because it matters!

  1. I really admire your Marriage Matters series, as a lot of people seem to throw in the towel when the going gets tough. Marriage somehow gets glamorized into a “fairytale” these days, and that’s just not realistic.


  2. I love this and I am definitely going to join in! This wasn’t the easiest month for us either but in the end we are on the same side and it is always great to remember that. going to read the fight now!


  3. You sweet thing! Thanks for sharing my post. I’m glad it spoke to you. Marriage can be tough, but I also feel like it’s the one place where all the work seems to be so incredibly rich and rewarding. You do a great job of inspiring women to pursue their spouse.


  4. I always enjoy your marriage matters posts and your emphasis on marriage. All these little moments add up to a great marriage. Your weekly reminders always get me thinking about things i can do in my own marriage.
