  1. Commit to praying with your spouse for the next 28 days. Start today.

  2. Write your spouse a note and leave it on their nightstand or stick it to the bathroom mirror.

  3. Talk to your spouse and schedule a date night for the month. If your family needs childcare take care of that and book reservations. On a tight budget, get creative with your date night.

  4. Over the next 4 weeks set aside one time-slot each week to talk. Spend time asking each other the following questions: 
    • What brought you joy this week?
    • What was hard for you this week?
    • How can I pray for you?
      *Questions are from The Marriage Journal

  5. Rub your spouse’s feet or give them a neck and shoulder massage. Care for their physical needs.

  6. Share with your spouse something you have seen them do lately that you are thankful for.

  7. If you have something that is separating you from your spouse, confess it and discuss how to maintain openness in your relationship. If your communication is great, thank your spouse for their open and honest communication.
