Hun I say this with love..... focus on both of you getting where you need to be with God..... The rest will follow. Don't worry about relationship books, especially if its hard finding the time to continue with them. Read the bible together, pray together... Get closer to God and your relationship with your husband will get better :)

You said that very well! Our old Pastor always said that marriage is like a triangle, the two of you on the bottom sides, and God at top. The closer you move to God, the closer you move towards each other. It is so true!

Wow!! I don't know if I could memorize a whole book. That's awesome. Praying for you.
I start the Daniel Fast on the 3rd and will be reading through the whole New Testament in 21 days. Prayers for strength to stick to it!!

Will do!! Good luck! You'll have to let us know how it goes. I've been thinking about trying the Bible in 90 days. Maybe next year, we'll have to see!

That's a lot of reading.
I'm excited that DH is doing it with me. Normally, it's me fasting by myself.

That's so good that you have your own room now. Hopefully they don't get too many patients. How are things going?

we are definitely keeping it with god. It's just not the bible, but books that refer to the bible to help us understand the things we struggle with.



The relationship ones are Christian based. Like well do the couples devotionals. And I have some trust issues so Were reading a book by a pastors wife about her journey with trust and her husband. It has helped us a lot see what god wants for us and our relationship and How to cope with my feelings so I'm not being bitter or resentful in our relationship. There's lots of praying together in the books and bible verses.

I forgot to answer, no, DH doesn't do it with me. I've memorized a few chapters out of Psalms and various verses, but I really want to have more of a challenge. I know two people who have memorized Colossians, so I'm using them both for accountability.
