What's Next?

Many of you emailed me asking me, "What's next"? Now that the 30 day challenge is over, where do we go from here? I would love to know what you all would like to see. To respond, just post a comment.

1. Repeat the Love & Respect 14 day challenge. (We will do it the 14 days leading to Valentine's Day)
2. The Love Dare
3. A daily Bible lesson relevant to marriage/family
4. 100 Ways to Love your Husband (from yesterday)
5. Other - your ideas

I am looking forward to what you all think would be the most beneficial to you.

I told you all that I would be reviewing a few websites to receive the Lemonade Award that I was blessed enough to earn. This was a tough decision for me. There are so many great blogs out there. Here are a few that I visit on a regular basis that I think should receive the next Lemonade Award.

** Rules for the Award **

* Put the Lemonade Logo on your blog or in your blog post
* Nominate at least 10 blogs with a great attitude or gratitude
* Link Nominees to your post
* Let your nominees know about their award by leaving them a comment on their blog
* Share the Love & link to the person from whom you received the award


Of course, http://www.o2fitnesstraining.blogspot.com

Which blog is your favorite? Thanks again to Carla at, "So This Is Holland?" for blessing me with this award.

MANY of you have sent in additional ways to love your husband from yesterday's post. Keep them coming in! I will re-post the final list once the ideas slow down. I can't wait to get started. There are some really good ones on there. Fun stuff!

I would love to do the Love Dare. I have the book I have just never actually picked it up. I think it goes along well with the other challenges we have been doing. However, I do think it would be nice to jump start Valentine's day with either the 14 day Love and Respect Challenge or the 100 Ways to Love Your Husband. After Valentine's Day we could dive in to the Love Dare!

I have a great idea..we can do the 14 day challenge again..and then for lent do the 40 day love dare..I think that would be a great idea!! I havnt done the 14 day challenge yet..but want to, and I have been raking my brain about what to fast for lent..I cant really fast food..( I am currently bfing) so..I think the 4 day love dare would be great for me..it would be very hard..we can hardly talk at this point..so me not saying anything but good things..well..will challenge me..and require a lot of prayer..and 14days to get started..is a good idea! I cant wait to see what you come up with..

I agree with the comments above. I think the Love Dare would be an awesome challenge for us to go through together. I enjoyed the 14 day challenge and benefited greatly. It is so awesome to be able to serve God by loving my husband and being the wife God wants me to be.

Lynda said...

I vote for the love dare! That way we can use what we have learned through the 14 day challenge and combine the two :)

The love dare:)

I would love to do the 14 day challenge up to Valentines day! I think that would be fun. I do want to do all the things you listed at some point though!

Autumn said...

I think The Love Dare would be great! I have the book, but kinda stopped working on it, and I think having a lot of people doing it would be a great motivator for a lot of us.

14 day challenge again. :-)

Alissa M said...

My husband and I have been doing the Love Dare but things come up, it would be great to have this and do it too! Such an important aspect in marriages and especially in my marriage.

Becky said...

I had a thought today. I was wondering if you were to do the 14 day challenge again, would you be able to help us with ideas for people who, for one reason or another, don't see their partner every day? I know you said you did this when Adam wasn't at home, and you had to come up with different ideas. I'm not always with my partner and strugled to come up with ideas...
Although you might decide not to do the chellenges again at all, either way I'll be here!
I don't know what the love dare is? Can that be adapted for people whos partners work away?
Thanks Aimee!

The Love Dare is GREAT!! I started and then like most things did not finish. It would be GREAT to have accountability to stick with it!

I would like to do the Love Dare. We bought the book right after seeing the movie and it's sitting on the night stand--hasn't even been opened yet!

For me trying to do two Bible studies woul dbe unrealistic. I'm doing the 30 days and that is it for me. That sound horrible doesn't it? Since we did I run out of time for spending time with God?

Congratulations on your award!

I would really like to do the Love Dare. I recently bought the book, but haven't read it yet. I think this would be a great new series. Can't wait to see what you decide!

Thanks for the award - you are sweet!
I prayed for your family and for Kayleigh so much and I'm so sorry that she is not with you. I know she is loving being with Jesus! I bet she is one of His sweetest angels!!!
