200 Posts and A Marriage Book With Your Help

This post happens to be my 200th post on this site.  After one year of blogging, I have to say I am really excited about what my blog has become.  JackieBledsoe.com has become a great group of family leaders looking to better lead their families.  A group of husbands and wives looking to improve their relationships.   As well as many dads and moms becoming better parents.

200 Posts and a Marriage Book With Your Help - JackieBledsoe.com - Growing Family Leaders

Your words are important

When I posted my 100th post, I threw a party.  Well, kinda sorta.  I actually opened my blog up for guest bloggers.  For my 200th post I am going to share something for my readers.  My first marriage book will be released this month, and I am giving it way FREE!  In addition, I am giving my my readers, you, the opportunity to be in my book.

Encourage other marriages

You do not have to be a writer, author, blogger, or anything like that.  You just need to be passionate about your marriage, and have a desire to improve it.  All you have to do is share a quote about marriage.  It doesn’t have to be your original quote either.  Something that encourages you, and can encourage others as well.

Below I’v listed a few encouraging words for marriages:

  • Having a healthy and functional marriage is possible and worth it. [Tweet this]
  • Being married is not the same as being somebody’s baby mama or daddy…it is much better!
  • One of the greatest investments you can make is in your marriage. [Tweet this]
  • Just like a plant, your marriage will not grow without water and light.  Tend to your marriage.
  • Hebrew root of “husband” means champion.  So, all husbands are champions, but not all act like it. [Tweet this]
  • Husband is a man’s first and most important leadership role.
  • Your happiness in marriage will depend on how well you meet the needs of your spouse.
  • Encouraging words will bring a sweetness and healing to your relationship. [Tweet this]

Hopefully those quotes encourage and inspire you to grow your relationship.  We can all use encouragement and inspiration, and you never know when your words can be that saving grace for another couples marriage.

  • Thanks for sharing here man. Looking forward to your book. I often think about “deep” things when I build a fire. That really just means I think simple thoughts that are packed with a lot of meaning. During this past winter, this thought came to me: Sparks are just a beginning to a fire that will be built, a fire that will be sustainable and consistently provide a place of warmth. The initial excitement of sparks is just a beginning and remains only a beginning unless a lot of work is added to those sparks. But once the work is put in, what you have is the real fire, a fire that simply needs to be sustained rather than built – as long as you don’t ignore it for too long. This is a kind of metaphor for marriage, the engagement phase before marriage, and the life of marriage after many years.

  • Congratulations Jackie! Here’s a quote:

    1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 (NIV)
    15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.
    16 Rejoice always,
    17 pray continually,
    18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

    • Thanks Briana!! Great scripture as well!
