I’ve done my first guest post on another blog!
(OK – I this is kinda cheating and you’ll find out why further down this post.)
You probably don’t realize this – but writing for someone else is a huge step for me. I mean, I blogged here at Encourage Your Spouse for 4 years and never promoted what I wrote or told anyone that I was blogging.
Last July I stepped out to participate in the Ultimate Blog Challenge and all of a sudden people read what I wrote. Boy, was that scary!
(It’s funny the stuff that keeps us from trying something new.)
Here I am a year later – and I’ve made some completely wonderful online friends! It’s been such a lovely experience connecting with you all!
I’ve felt so blessed and so humbled.
Thank you for your encouragement!
So… wanna know who encouraged me to ‘guest post’?
My greatest encourager – Robert!
Today I guest posted on his blog – Ferguson Values – about… you guessed it… Encouragement in Marriage!
(Hah. Not too much of a stretch, eh?)
Here’s how I started:
We all enjoy encouragement.
Encouragement feels good whether it’s an approving smile from a co-worker, a pat-on-the-back from a peer, or a note of thanks from an employer. Even a stranger has the power to encourage us because they’ve noticed who we are and have shown an interest. However, we value encouragement more from some than others.

(Robert has always been good at encouraging me to step out – to try something new – to overcome my fears. He continually ‘adds in courage’ . Thanks, Rob!)
What are you doing to encourage your spouse to step out – past some of their fears?
