HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: What about your love makes you smile?


When in relationships you may see a tree trunk that reminds you of your husband.  You may see a color that reminds you of a certain day.  You may have a crisis situation when you have one moment to grab something special.  What is that one thing you would grab, or that something that reminds you of your love and makes you smile?

MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: Live your marriage to the fullest!


This Motivational Monday we would like to motivate you to really enjoy your life with your spouse.  Life is to short to dwell on him leaving his socks next to the bed everyday, instead give him a kiss and pick up the socks.  Better yet, communicate with him that you would like him to pick up his socks.  Why loose a minute of your day being angry, when you can enjoy every minute of your day loving each other and having fun!  Today I would like to motivate you live your marriage to the fullest! Plan a date night today and LIVE!!!!!

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: Renewal or Not?


Marriage is wonderful, and sometimes we feel that if we renew our love by having another ceremony we renew our marriage, our love, our commitment.  However, these days so many celebrities renew they're vows one month, and the next they're separated, for example, Jon & Kate, Seal & Heidi. To renew or not to renew that is the question...

In marriage their are ups and downs, growth and changes, positive, and not so positive times, but I feel that if we motivate each other to accept those times, accept those changes then we can breeze through them.  Accept your spouse for the person that they are, for the person that they have become, and honor your union...

This Motivational Monday I would like to share with you some quotes in the words of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that I feel will be great motivational advice for married couples;

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is not enough to say we must not wage war. It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thank You Reverend Dr. King for providing us with the motivation to dream, and to make a difference not only as a people, but also in our marriages.

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: Do you still date?


I think anyone will tell you that marriage is a lot of hard work.  After being together for some time, its easy to get in the habits of life.  Do you still date your spouse?  If so, how and why is it important in your marriage?  If not, why is it not important in your marriage?

MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY: Pray for your Husband


In my opinion, I feel that our Husbands should be the King of our homes, the beating of our hearts, and the partner to our souls.  With them being all of that we have to pray for them.  So this day I motivate you to pray for your Husbands;

May You open my husband’s ears to hear Your voice; may You open his eyes to see Your guidance: and may You open his heart to receive Your wisdom. May You Give him a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of You, and may the eyes of his heart be enlightened so that he may know what is the hope of Your calling, what are the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints and what is the surpassing greatness of Your power toward us who believe. (Eph. 1:17-19)

HOT TOPIC TUESDAY: Half of everything!


This New Year there are so many people getting engaged!  Marriage is beautiful and I'm so happy for these newly engaged couples, but also this year their are so many giving up on the marriage fight and getting divorces*!  There's:

Kobe & Vanessa Bryant
Russel Brand & Katy Perry
Deion & Pillar Sanders

Just to name a few.  What do you think about a spouse getting half of everything after only being married for a few months?  What do you think about a spouse getting half of everything after being married for longer than 10 years?  What do you think about a fully able to work ex-husband getting half of everything or alimony?

*RWOC in no way promotes getting divorces.  We are all about fighting back on the attack against marriage, and we encourage positive healthy marriages that work through the hard times.  This topic is for discussion only.
