The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge: One Question a Week. One Incredible Marriage. by Jeff & Lora Helton  is a book which all marriage couples should work on together.  In the book Jeff & Lora take one through the year by focusing on a question a week which the couple has to focus on.

There are 50 chapters for 50 questions  (including a bonus section on special dates like Thanksgiving, Valentines etc ) which focuses on  the question of the week.

In the start of the book this question is asked.

How will you use this 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge each week?

Psalm  90:12 – Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom as quoted together with a explanation and prompt questions in the chapter.

From the leading questions the following topics are explored.

-growing in intimacy;
– developing shared hobbies;
– improving spiritual intimacy in marriage
–  understanding the different ways of  giving and receiving love;
– becoming better listeners;
– making bucket lists;
– discussing finances and remembering how we decided on marriage

My thoughts

Reading through the book got me asking myself questions which I feel that I should too be asking myself about my own marriage. Even though we have been married for 12 years there  are still many aspects of our marriage which we can still work on. We have been praying for each other but haven’t really sat down and prayed together as a couple.

It was really timely that I had receive this book to read. I have been thinking a lot of how to have a closer walk with GOD and within our marriage. This is one area which has been lacking and needs to be worked on.  This is certainly a book all married couples should read together.

Marriage Commitment


I choose you to be my husband/wife.

I choose to live together with you

within the covenant of marriage.

I will love you, comfort you, and honor you

in sickness and in health, in good time, and in bad times.

I will always show reverence to you,

Respecting your individuality and freedom to grow.

I will join together with you to be of service to the world.

I choose you for who you are and who you may become;

To assist you in your tasks;

To be sensitive to your needs;

To give of myself to the fullest development of your life;

To be challenged by you

to the fullest development of my own life;

To trust you in all ways and to be faithful to you in all things.

May God, our eternal Father, help us to decide

to love each other always, so that His joy and peace
may stay with us and always be in our home.

I pledge my trust, my love , and my faithfulness.

May we always show the love of God in our lives,

So that those who are hurting and in need
will find us to be their gentle,
generous, and compassionate friends.

Amen

This weekend I would like to share with all my readers the Marriage Commitment which is found on one of the pages in our Retrouvaille  workbook. We have  finally completed the whole course and are now equipped with all the tools that we need to make our marriage a more wonderful and meaningful one.
