31 Days to a Fruitful Marriage Day Eleven: The Benefits of Praying Together

 
Praying is a fundamental part of the Christian walk. As an individual, spending time with God in prayer is essential, but praying in your marriage, together, can make a world of difference There are so many benefits to praying together:
 
1) It is really hard to say ugly things to someone for whom you just prayed with/prayed for.
2) Praying shows you as a couple the path God wants you to lead.
3) It brings to importance the things God wants you to work on in your marriage.
4) It puts you both on the same page.
5) It helps you live in your role God intended within your marriage.
6) It helps remind you that marriage isn't fleeting, it is a promise.
 
I still remember the first time I ever heard Jason mention my name to God in prayer. No man had ever prayed for me or about me before. While I knew Jason was important to me, there is just a level of intimacy I gained knowing that he thought more about me than just a girlfriend, my spiritual life and my heart were important to him, too. The second he prayed for me, it made me want to be close to God, too. It made me want to have more than just an earthly relationship, I wanted our relationship to be centered on God. Praying for your spouse and with your spouse is probably one of the best things you could do for your marriage, without a doubt.

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 




 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
