How This Blog Will Help You
When my husband and I got married in 2010, we did things the “right” way. We got premarital counseling, read books on how to have a successful marriage, and had lots of discussions about the kind of marriage we wanted to have, and the culture we wanted to embody in our family.
But once we said our vows and actually started living together, I was shocked at how HARD it was to put the great things we had read into practice.
Sometimes I wondered, “Why is it this hard? I thought this was supposed to feel like a honeymoon!”
Then I realized something that changed everything.
Marriage is ALL about MINDSET. A GROWTH mindset to be exact. All the great stuff we had read, and the great marriage we dreamed about, could only become a reality if we were willing to grow. And growth requires change. You have to be willing to change the habits that cripple your relationship and replace them with habits that strengthen it.
So I started focusing less on what my husband was doing wrong, and focused more on what I needed to improve on. That was a game-changer for us! We realized that if we worked on our individual growth, our marriage would grow too!
So here we are, 8 years and 2 kids later, going strong! We’re best friends, and even though it’s still an upward climb, we’re doing it TOGETHER, happily.
So, if you want to learn how to have a MARRIAGE MINDSET, you’re in the right place! Whether you’re in a relationship and want to start preparing for marriage, or married and want to have a better relationship with your husband, the lessons I share will help transform your thinking and make you a better person.
