We are a Christian husband and wife team from North Carolina. We have been married for 22+ years and have twin daughters that are about to hit their teen years. He has been a member of the Worship Leadership Praise Team for our church for many years. She is a very involved and busy volunteer in the children and youth ministries of our church. We both have "real" jobs outside of our Romantic Blessings mission. We have the same stresses (now even more with COVID-19 furloughs, etc.), finding time for each other, work/life balance issues, and the fun of raising new teenagers as many of you do.
Like many of you, we have had our ups and downs throughout our marriage. Through one of our valleys several years ago, we began listening to a lot of Christian marriage podcasts together, reading scripture together, and refocusing our marriage on God.
We continued to learn how important God's design of sex and intimacy is to a Christian marriage. We found that there are a lot, I mean a lot, of very well respected marriage podcasts available talking about this subject, teaching us all to focus on sex and intimacy in our marriage. But we found that there were very few resources helping us put into practice what all of these podcasts were teaching.
We begin to feel a mission placed on our hearts led by the Holy Spirit to help in this mission for the Christian Marriage. And although way outside of our comfort zone and beyond anything we thought we would ever become involved in, a leap of faith was taken and Romantic Blessings was born.
Our prayers for Romantic Blessings are:
1. The products, services and partnerships we offer on Romantic Blessings will honor God and will bring honor to God by helping couples grow their marriages closer to God. and God's design for the Christian marriage.
2. We are able to bless at least one marriage that is not being reached in any other way, or just needed to know today that God loves them.
3. By taking the leap of faith to establish Romantic Blessings, we will fulfill the mission the Holy Spirit has placed upon our hearts.
4. We will not let the focus of Romantic Blessings be corrupted by money and greed, but always stay focused on honoring God in all that we do.
We pray daily for God's direction for Romantic Blessings. We know there are many secular views on what is accepted and not accepted within a Christian marriage, and we know that some of the products we carry may be viewed by some as not acceptable, but we pray daily that every product, service and partnership we associate with Romantic Blessings is led by God and the Holy Spirit and is Biblically acceptable, even if not accepted by the secular or varying earthly Christian view. We ask that you add Romantic Blessings to your prayer list that we will listen to and know God's guidance in all that we do.
With prayers for your marriage,
the Romantic Blessings team
