Love Unending: Rediscovering Your Marriage in the Midst of Motherhood by Becky Thompson
How can I remember how to be a wife when it takes all I’ve got to be a momma?
Since becoming a mom, do you ever feel like your marriage no longer receives the attention it needs to thrive? Do you ever wonder how you’re supposed to re-center your heart on your husband when you are so busy with everything else?
Those feelings we experienced in the first days of love and marriage often become buried beneath hurried life, active children, and mountains of bills and laundry. Maybe you’ve questioned and perhaps even worried if you’ll ever again experience love as you did in the beginning—that newness of what it meant to be fully caught up in one another. But what if you could rekindle that fresh sort of love? What if there was a secret to love unending?
For the next twenty-one days, journey with Becky Thompson to remember what life was like when you first fell in love with your husband. Each daily challenge, reflection, and prayer will refocus your attention, re-center your heart, reignite the romance, and help you rediscover your marriage in the midst of motherhood.
Take the Love Unending 21-day challenge and discover the best way forward is to look back at the beginning.
When you have kids you think that you will still be able to be a wonderful wife and a wonderful mother, along with wonderful housekeeper, cook, and any other titles that moms have. Well, in my own life I know that there have been times since I became a mom that I felt that maybe I was putting my husband and marriage on the back burner. Enter the Love Unending challenge from Becky Thompson.
Love Unending: Rediscovering Your Marriage in the Midst of Motherhood is written as a 21 day challenge for moms who want and/or need to remember those first days of being in love with their husbands with the hope that they can rekindle their romances and the fire in their marriages. Every chapter is for a different day and offers a look into Mrs. Thompson's own life and marriage, a challenge and a reflection area, as well as spaces to write your observations and thoughts.
Personally, I loved going through this challenge. It helped me to become aware that I was putting my marriage on the back burner and I needed to take some time to devote to my husband. I loved the challenges and how they made me think and really appreciate my marriage. I do feel that it helped to strengthen my relationship with my husband, even after 11+ years of marriage and 3 kids later. I would highly recommend this book to all moms/wives out there!
