A great blog I stumbled across.........

So, there are a handful of blogs I like to read. Ok, ok, a couple of handfuls of blogs I like to read! Really, though, I'm learning to not waste time reading things that don't make much of a difference in my life. I'm trying to focus on spending my time reading things that are really worthwhile. You know, things that encourage, uplift, and inspire rather than drain my time.

Through another blog, I came across Women Living Well. This is one of the best blogs I've read, and exactly what I've been looking for! Courtney is such an inspiring young woman who truly loves the Lord. I've only known about her blog for a few days now, and have been spending a little time each day reading her archives. There is so much encouragement to be found there!

Well, she gave a challenge this summer called "Completing Him". It was a challenge for us wives to build up our marriages by doing little things that make a big impact for our husbands. While I sadly missed out on this challenge (it's already over), I've read most of her posts about it. My favorite so far has been to kiss your husband like you mean it! How often do we forget to do that? The mornings are busy and he's just trying to get out the door to get to the office on time and so, a quick little peck has to suffice.

It just doesn't have to be that way! I am determined to kiss my hubby like I mean it at least once a day. And to make sure I don't forget, I'm trying to do it in the morning when he leaves for work. What a send off! He tells me he'll be thinking about me all day after I kiss him like that!

If you haven't heard of Women Living Well, I encourage you to pop on over and check it out. I'm very glad I stumbled across it! Thanks, Courtney!

I loved this challenge! I recommended to my readers to go ahead and do the challenge themselves for the next 8 weeks....maybe you could do it as well?

Many Blessings,

Melissa, thanks for the comment and great idea! There really isn't any reason why I couldn't do that--perhaps I'll blog my way through it!

Hooray! I am so glad you are joining us even if it is on the tail end! Keep kissing your man like you mean it - he will be blessed and in return - so will you!!!
Much love,
