Give me any little nugget you have or education about relationships and marriage and I'll do my best to soak it up like a sponge. It's one of the biggest investments in my life - our marriage. How do I take care of a massive investment? Time, money, care, kindness, and doing my best for the other person.

So, this is the 'beta' of what that looks like. It's a questionnaire for couples and it's meant to be done weekly. You can either print out these worksheets or text your responses to each other using the photo that you save to your phone (open the photo edit option on your phone and you can select text). It's simply meant to be a check in for couples. Life gets busy and it's hard to sit down sometimes and dive into those conversations. I found this questionnaire helps elevate that pressure while still connecting us.

Verlon and I have been doing these for a little over 2 months with lots of success and connection and I figure if it's bringing up so much joy, time to share it with others.

I'd love to hear how it goes for you and your partner! There are TWO options, pick the one that feels 'right' for you.

A while ago I heard about the Marriage Journal and I loved the idea of "how can I pray for you", but wanted something more personalized and something that I could edit on the fly, if I got new ideas. The one thing I felt about the Marriage Journal was - what if a couple didn't grow up with the idea of prayer? These worksheets could still really work for a couple that isn't actively practising prayer in their lives, so that is why there are two versions below. Who knows what spot you're in with your spirituality -  I wanted all relationships, regardless of belief to benefit the way we have.

As a Christian couple, we have really loved the last question because it's kept us accountable in our faith life, and encouraging prayer weekly. It's so easy to get busy and really forget about talking to God or praying.

But that being said just being asked "Keep this in mind" can look like a very similar thing, say you're stressed out at work about a certain outcome, your spouse can wish you well for that particular item in you life and being mindful about it versus holding onto it alone. Two is stronger than one.

Hope it helps!

UPDATE: I've attached a worksheet that could work for parents & kids. I'd really love to hear feedback on it! One option includes prayer, and the other starts an open discussion for "hard" to talk about things that your child may want you to know. Give me all the feedback parents!

  1. These days, around half of all marriages end in divorce.

    That’s a pretty sad statistic... especially because so many of those divorces are preventable.

    In reality, many marriages end prematurely. Why? Well, there are two reasons.

    1.) Neither spouse knows how to prevent the passion, intimacy, and romantic connection from gradually fading away.

    2.) They make the 3 “Marriage Murdering Mistakes” that very few people know about... and sadly, these 3 mistakes can quickly drive your marriage into disaster and divorce.

    If you’re in this situation...

    If your marriage is dead-as-a-doornail...

    If you’re heading towards divorce, or even if you’re already at that point...

    Then a new video by marriage coach Brad Browning will show you how to stop the downward spiral and breathe some life back into your relationship. (Brad’s a freakin’ genius, by the way.)

    <== Begin Repairing Your Marriage *Today*

    I wish I could force every couple experiencing a marriage crisis to watch this new video... because the strategies Brad reveals in it are extremely powerful and might be the difference between “unhappily divorced” and “happily ever after”.

    The best part is that you can apply the techniques described in his video on your own... without your spouse even being aware that you’re making an effort to save the marriage.

    So don’t lose hope just because your partner refuses to attend marriage counselling, or won’t put in the effort to fix the problems that are slowly eating away at your marriage.

    There’s no catch to this, and no marketing gimmicks… just a complimentary in-depth guide to saving your marriage.

    At the very least, you should watch the first few minutes where Brad reveals the ‘3 Marriage Murdering Mistakes’... these 3 massive myths alone are a huge reason why nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.

    Don’t give up on love yet. Take action today and begin re-building your marriage... start by clicking the link below to watch the video now.

    The techniques in the video have already worked for hundreds of married couples... and they’ll work for you, too. What are you waiting for?

    Here’s to a happy, healthy, and long-lasting marriage!

    Talk to you soon,
