When my kids were little, I trained them to stay in bed by telling them that the evening was ‘mommy & daddy’ time and we needed to have this time to help keep our marriage strong.  They liked the idea of ‘helping’ us in our marriage.  And it worked.  The kids remained in bed unless there was an emergency.  This was our ‘date’ a lot of the time.  Sometimes we’d go out – or my husband would feed the kids early and cook us a later dinner – he is a fantastic cook!  But, most of the time, it was a quiet evening at home watching something o TV (I know there are some against watching TV together instead of ‘talking’ – but we’ve been happily married for 19 years now – we both work from home and I homeschool the kids – and we are still MADLY in love – like seriously sappy and mushy – so, clearly it works for us).

So…that’s why I chose Joy’s post, Why It’s Important to Date Your Husband, as my feature this week.  I appreciate that she didn’t say there was only one way to date your hubby – in fact, I think it is a state of the heart that comes into play here, too.  But she gave a few suggestions that included staying at home.  And, you know what??  Those at-home dates make getting to the bedroom quicker;)  Right?

Joy, please be sure to grab this “I’ve Been Featured” image below and add it, with a link to this page, to your post so that your readers can celebrate with you!

  • Thanks for the great reminder to make time for date-night with your hubby. Todd and I tend to do day-dates where we get out on the motorcycle and go out to eat. I love that time!!!

    One of the blog posts I linked up today mentions you 🙂 It’s the one titled “I was Shortlisted for a Word Guild Award”. Thanks for featuring my blog post in December.

    One day I’d love to talk to you about WIMM Canada, our organization for Christian Women in Music & Media. We’re connected with Christian Women in Media in the US. http://www.wimmcanada.ca

    Praying for you today Aimee. Asking God to shower you with His goodness and a deep sense of His presence.

    • Motorcycle dates sound FUN! Marcus and I will probably get a couple when the kids are gone. Do you have your own or do you ride with Todd?

      Thanks for mentioning me in your post. I am absolutely thrilled for you and being shortlisted! Going to the gala in Toronto will be a blast. I look forward to hearing all about it – be sure to let me know if you write about it – with photos!

      We can set up a time to chat about WIMM – sounds interesting. Maybe Zoom?

      Thank you for your prayers. I am feeling very loved by my Lord!

      Thanks Sherry! You have blessed me today!

      • Aimee I’m so glad to hear I blessed your life because you blessed mine 🙂 I don’t have my own bike. I just sit on the back of Todds and squeeze tight.
        Email me and we can set up a time to chat. info at sherrystahl dot com
