About Love Unending

How can I remember how to be a wife when it takes all I’ve got to be a momma?

Since becoming a mom, do you ever feel like your marriage no longer receives the attention it needs to thrive? Do you ever wonder how you’re supposed to re-center your heart on your husband when you are so busy with everything else?

Those feelings we experienced in the first days of love and marriage often become buried beneath hurried life, active children, and mountains of bills and laundry.

But what if you could rekindle that fresh sort of love? What if there was a secret to love unending?

For the next twenty-one days, journey with Becky Thompson to remember what life was like when you first fell in love with your husband. Each daily challenge, reflection, and prayer will refocus your attention, re-center your heart, reignite the romance, and help you rediscover your marriage in the midst of motherhood.

Can Marriage Thrive in the Midst of Motherhood?
 
God designed marriage to be a beautiful partnership—the foundation for a flourishing family. Yet popular blogger Becky Thompson noticed a repeated theme as she heard from the young mothers reading her blog. Woman after woman reached out, saying, “I have been so focused on being a mom that I don’t remember how to love my husband. I think it is too late. What can I do?”
 
Love Unending: RediscoveringYour Marriage in the Midst of Motherhood (WaterBrook, January 3, 2017) is Thompson’s thoughtful, encouraging answer. In her follow up to the popular Hope Unfolding (WaterBrook, March 15, 2016) Thompson suggests that readers can stop their marriages from ending by reigniting how they felt towards their husbands in the beginning. Written in her encouraging and down-to-earth style, Thompson invites women to join her on a 21-day journey to rediscover their marriages in the midst of the day-to-day demands of motherhood.
 
Each daily entry focuses on one simple, practical challenge. Day by day, Thompson guides readers towards marital joy, replacing destructive patterns with actionable steps based on biblical principals and the behaviors present in the early days of relationships. Some themes include:
·  Speak kindly
·  Listen intently
·  Forgive immediately
·  Correct sparingly
 
“Truly, time and children have a way of changing every area of our married lives. But what if we could rekindle that fresh sort of love?” Thompson writes. “We might not be able to go back to the beginning; we might not even want to. The lessons we have learned in the time that has passed are invaluable. But what if we could couple the lessons we’ve learned in our married lives with the acts of love that came so effortlessly in our early days of courtship?”
 
With refreshing authenticity, Thompson tackles the triumphs and struggles of relationships as she hands women the tools to bring about true transformation in their marriages. Thompson challenges women in every season of parenthood and marriage, guiding readers step by step, “as we realize that walking in love can be far more beautiful than falling in love.”

Rediscovering your marriage in the midst of motherhoodI am not sure what it is with me and challenges lately or what God is trying to show me, but I didn't realize this book was set up as a 21-day challenge when I requested it. I didn't read it like that. I actually read it through in less than 24 hours, so it's a pretty quick read, but there are some good things in there.I really like the advice Becky gets from her dad which is the premise...
