May 2015:  FREE MARRIAGE CHECKLIST GIVEAWAY!  I am giving away one free Marital Checklist per couple in the month of June.  Just email me your email and how many years you’ve been married. That’s it.  Email me at pbcspc@msn.com for your free checklist today!

 

November 2014: Ask yourself: What really is the problem I am having? Be specific, write it down. Then ask the second most important question:  Whose problem is it?

Sometimes, it isn’t your problem per se.

 

September 2014:  Ask yourself and then your spouse:  “What would I (you) do if you knew I (you) wouldn’t fail?”  SHare your answers.

August 2014:  Think about this scary thought:  If this were your last week on planet Earth, would you be pleased about how you treated your loved ones? Your spouse, children, parents, in-laws, coworkers and neighbors?  Would you like the way you spent your time?

November’s tip:  One key to overcoming shame is to ask yourself,

“What am I believing right now to make me feel like this and is it the

truth?”

Remember: Your relationships are like your car: if you have no gas, you won’t be going very far! If you don’t change your oil every 3-6,000 miles, sooner or later your car will not run! Nothing in this world is maintenance free!  Marriage and other significant relationships need attention! Just like my garden: I need to water it, weed it (I really hate weeding, but it is necessary), and pray for sunshine. I’m guessing you did pay attention to your relationship status early on; I can help you remember how and why you did.  If you’d like my help,  I’d love to be the one to help you to have a GREAT marriage and a BETTER life!

Oct. 2013:  Resentment builds walls between spouses.  Don’t let bitterness take root in your marriage.  Figure out how to resolve the issue.  No one likes a bitter person.

Sept. 2013 Tip:  Complacency kills just about everything.  Don’t let your marriage be its next victim! Why wait until things are really bad to seek help?  Most good counselors can help you, but why wait til you hate each other or have seen a lawyer? Go together or just go yourself, I believe it will help.

Past Tip:  Think of a time when you were feeling great: what were you doing that you’re not doing now? What things were you thinking about that you aren’t thinking about now?  Try and do or think about those things.  And tell a good friend when you’re going to do that thing. Then go do it.

Another tip: Rate your marriage on a scale of 1 – 10 with 1 meaning “poor” and 10 meaning “the best”. Then ask your spouse to do the same and discuss your answers.  Challenge: Rate each of the following areas: communication; parenting; money management; in-laws; leisure activities; religion; sex life; conflict resolution, etc.  Give 2-3 compliments daily to your spouse!

Think:  Rate your overall satisfaction with your life. What’s one area that I really want to improve?   Answer the following:  What’s one thing I could say or do that would improve this area?  Make a list of action steps and do one in the next 2 weeks.  And tell a friend what you’re going to do–you’ll be more likely to follow through!
