In these crazy pandemic days, the divorce rate is soaring even though couples and families are spending more time together than ever before. On the surface, this can look deceptively like we’re more connected in marriage.

  1. Beth,
    If I popped over from Anita’s do I qualify for the freebie? Did I miss it somewhere? LOL. Loved this post! Early congrats on your 10 year blogiversary – WOW!
    Blessings sweet friend,

    1. Hey Bev! It was a tiny little link at the end of my post over at Anita’s. But for you, I’ll email you a link! I hope you enjoy it and thanks for coming by to encourage me, girlfriend! You’re the best!


  2. Great tips Beth! I came from Anita’s blog as well. How do I access the download?


    1. It was a link found at the end my guest post on Anita’s blog. But I sent you one in an email just in case, Priya! Thanks for coming by!


  3. Great tips Beth! I also came from Anita’s blog. I love the example prayer you shared and your idea of setting aside “talk time.” As parents to five active kiddos, we know that if stuff (even as important as time to sit and talk) isn’t scheduled, it often doesn’t happen.

    Thank you for these ideas and reminders!


    1. Yes, so true, Jed! Especially when there are five kiddos involved! Wow! Their activities surely must take precedence on most days. But we all can be intentional about getting our marriages on the docket too! Thanks for coming by and encouraging me!


  4. Just to be talking about meaningful connections, is a meaningful connection in itself 🙂 Great tips thanks Beth!


  5. Such an important conversation right now. Thanks for these tips! Visiting from Grace & truth.


  6. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with my readers, Beth!
