Mid-marriage challenge – Make New Connections:

This is the first of (at least) 30 videos for couples in the middle of marriage – to challenge them to lead a life filled with meaning. We’re kicking it up a notch in 2017 – making videos for you! Take a look…

But it’s hard to make new friends in the middle of marriage…

Oh, yes. We understand. Time is at a premium, when you’re stuck in the middle between raising children and helping aging parents. It’s hard to make new connections when you’re tired. Or frustrated. Or challenged.

However, NOW is the best time to reach out to make new couple friends – friends are part of a meaningful life. They’ll support you, and help you cope with the ups and downs in life.

An article from the Mayo Clinic says that friendships will:

  • Increase your sense of belonging and purpose
  • Boost your happiness and reduce your stress
  • Improve your self-confidence and self-worth
  • Help you cope with traumas
  • Encourage you to change or avoid unhealthy lifestyle habits

But we’re challenging you to do more… to also kick it up a notch in 2017!

Invest in your marriage relationship every week.

We have 30 weekly, mid-marriage encouragement challenges already planned, (that takes us to September, if you’re counting), with more in the works. Each weekly challenge will have supporting posts and documents to go with the video,

You might not be ready to do all four challenges in the month – but that’s the nice part… you have a plan…  a place to start.

Start what?

Start encouraging each other to lead a meaningful life as husband and wife!

These challenges are an answer to your question,

“Is this all there is?”

when you look at your marriage and your life together as husband & wife…

Make New Connections

Go ahead – reach out. Break out of your routine and make your marriage relationship more
