WFMW - Romance, Web-Style!


Ok, ok, so technically I'm not giving you my favorite web shopping site. But to be honest, I don't really buy much off the web. I rather like the experience of shopping. I like holding something in my hand and feeling it, looking it over. I just can't get into ordering much online.

But I am sharing web sites that help me out this week. I am a sucker for romance. I love to give and receive signs of love. Fortunately, Hubby is the same way. Here are a couple of ways I like to help keep the spark glowing in our marriage.

The Generous Wife - This is an amazing site, chock-ful of great information. Not only are there articles and forums where you can find lots of resources and great ideas, there is a daily email that you can sign up for that gives you a little something you can do to bless your husband. This ranges from ways to pray for your husband, to sweet little gestures, to things to fire up things in the bedroom! I always love looking at the ideas. (BTW, there is a companion email for husbands to receive to bless their wives!)

Romance Calendar - I love, love, love this! It's a calendar with a different idea every day to romance your spouse. Now, I know we are all busy so we can't do every idea on the calendar, but it's a great resource for when you are needing an extra pick-me-up in the relationship department. It's part of the LovingYou.com website, which is another great source.

Do you know your Love Language? Do you know what your husband's Love Language is? If you don't know these crucial facts, you may be killing yourself to try to express your love for your spouse and getting nowhere. Conversely, you might be completely feeling unloved, even though your husband thinks he's doing all he can to show love to you. Take this quiz to find out what your love language is.

Finally, if you have any questions about more intimate issues, be sure to check out The Marriage Bed. This site just for Christian married couples frankly addresses every imaginable issue in a godly and Biblical way.

That's all I have to share with you this week. I hope that in some way you will be blessed by these sites. Be sure to visit Rocks in My Dryer for great shopping websites though - there's always a pick-me-up in shopping!

Since marriage is a daily commitment, these are all great tips. Thanks so much for sharing. (especially since we aren't spending money right now)

Hey! I've been reading your blog for a while, but never commented before (sorry!). Today though, I just wanted to thank you for spreading the word about The Generous Wife, The Generous Husband, and The Marriage Bed - all great resources that hubby and I enjoy!

I just found your blog and love the links you suggested. My one blog I am working on making it about being a wife, mother and all that is involved Biblically. I am still trying to find my pattern but your links really help. Thanks you.

Nice romantic list. I especially like the Generous wife. Great idea. Ill check out the other links too.

I completely forgot about the shopping theme this week. My WFMW is 16 uses for vinegar on my homemaking blog http://heartofwisdom.com/heartathome

Vinegar--it that the opposite of romantic?

I need a WFMW tip on keeping up themes. :)

Blessings,
Robin

PS. My homeschool blog is http://heartofwisdom.com/blog

I love the calendar one! I've thought on and off for years already that kind of thing would be handy to have. Now I know where to look!! (It'll be tough to put most into practise while hubby's gone for the next 2 months, though!)

Hey, on a completely unrelated subject, I found another blog you might be interested in. Check out Sandier Pastures. I believe she's formerly of England, now living in Dubai. I know you're going to Qatar, but thought you might still be interested.

these are great ideas.

funnily (or not), i think my husband and i still get embarrassed about "romantic" things; this, after almost 10 years of great (almost-perfect, but he still forgets the garbage, and the toilet seat, and the stinky socks) marriage and three kids.

we snicker if we go to a dance and there are pink hearts and streamers up.

that said, we really liked the book Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. it's got fun quizzes and practical advice on how to make up well after the inevitable arguments.
