We are a Christian husband and wife team from North Carolina. We have been married for 22+ years and have twin daughters that have just 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.
The above statements are what we pray for daily. What we would like to ask of you is that you add Romantic Blessings to your personal prayer list. We ask you to pray that God will give us discernment in all that we do, that we will continue to listen to God’s still voice, and that we will recognize God's guidance in all that we do.
New Year's resolutions always get broken because they force us to do things we hate. But make this year’s goal about intimacy with your spouse to enjoy changes you’ll actually love.
