Déjà vu


Posted by Michele Olson

It’s that time of year again, when we begin to make promises to ourselves that if we were being honest, we can’t possibly achieve. I’ve got a “doable” thing you can actually get accomplished and it will broaden your thinking. Purchase a book called Marriage and Caste in America by Kay Hymowitz.

It’s an important read for everyone.

Stop!

Did you accomplish the goal of reading Kay’s book? What you just read was the beginning of my December 2007 blog…a year ago! It’s still a great resolution and easier than losing 10 pounds and exercising for 2 hours every day!
Here's a great goal for 2009...

Become or increase your role as a Marriage Champion!

If your Marriage Myth Buster Guide is dog eared from use, we can get you a new one! Perhaps you never requested one…that’s a great first step in being a Marriage Champion! It’s as easy as sending us an email with your name and mailing address.

Sign up for our e-newsletter. It will keep you up to date on opportunities and thinkmarriage.org news. Visit our store on our website. Talk about the importance of healthy marriages to the people you know. Start a buzz!

Commit to commenting on this blog. Mark it as one of your "favorites." Even a line or two may spur someone else to a thought which could cause a domino effect that changes the world! (It’s that time of year to think big!)

Write a little reminder in your daily planner…set a goal of encouraging healthy relationships and marriage at least once a month in a way that suits your personality.

Consider investing in thinkmarriage.org, visit the donate page of our website.

What you do really does matter.

Can we count on you in 2009?
Let us hear how you've been a Marriage Champion or how you plan on becoming one in 2009!

Thank you for the opportunity to get the Marriage Myth Buster Guide. My Husband and I have had some hard times over the past 5 years (we just celebrated our 5th anniversary). I am hoping that by getting involved here we can get closer and become stronger.
Thanks for being here!

Thanks for blogging...and taking the very pro-active step of getting your Marriage Myth Buster Guide.
The truth about marriage is, marriage works when you work on your marriage. Reading articles, books and taking workshops to enhance your marriage really goes a long way in helping you with communication and conflict resolutions skills. Whether you've been married 5 years or 50...we all need to be working on our marriages. Let us know your thoughts once you've reviewed your Marriage Myth Buster guide.
