I have been contemplating starting a book series and discussion related to marriage beginning January 2012 as one of my “New Year’s Aspirations,” but I feel like this is something that shouldn’t wait. I am continually looking for ways to work on my part of the relationship with my husband, and I would like to start this series and discussion fairly soon (beginning of November.) In my opinion, improving on a marriage shouldn’t be put on the backburner because it will just create friction, tension and eventually a blow up if you are not communicating together.
That being said, I am considering starting a message board where others can join in on the discussion of the particular book/topic that is being discussed at the moment. My thoughts are that anyone who is interested in this could sign up as an anonymous user and we could chat openly about our marriages with a certain level of security and anonymity for those who feel more comfortable doing so that way. No one would be able to gain access to the discussion board without my approval before-hand.
Would anyone be interested in starting a book series and message board discussion with me to help improve and grow in our marriages? If so, please shoot me an email at SparingChange@gmail.com .Otherwise, I will be reading these books on my own and possibly posting on the blog.
Some of the books I’d like to read/discuss:
The 5 Love Languages (I’ve read it before, but I think it is worth going over again)The Love Dare
The Surrendered Wife
Fit to be Tied
Changes that Heal
I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
