About The Mini “Luv Your Man” Challenge
Being married for almost 15 years, I will be the first to tell you – it ain’t always easy – and with kids and dogs and bills (and workouts!), “relationship work” isn’t always on the top of the to do list. We are changing that for a few days! The challenge provides a fun way to remember how to treat the one you love and hopefully help that flame burn a little brighter. It’s also a good way to remember how to be selfless and do for someone else without expecting in return. After all LOVE IS A VERB – it’s something you do, something you practice!
Recapture the romance (and the every day niceties) that made you and your other half fall in love in the first place. The challenge is inspired by Kathi Lipp’s book titled “The Marriage Project”, which provides 21 days of fun (and quick) activities to bring laughter and love back to your relationship.
For our mini “Luv Your Man” challenge, you commit to do fun and flirty things for 5 days – things like love notes on the bathroom mirror or making a list of reasons you are proud of your man – and you’ll check in to let me know that you completed the task – we will have a group to discuss or brainstorm new ideas for others to try! I’ve hosted this challenge 3 times before and it is always lots of fun!!
There are 5 projects and you will have 7 days to complete them. They are meant to be spaced out – don’t do all of them on one day! The idea is to LUV YOUR MAN, so you are expected to complete the projects without telling him they are “for a challenge” AND (this is important) even if you are angry, irritated, or otherwise feel he doesn’t “deserve” it – LUV is not something we give only when someone deserves it and that is part of the lesson in the challenge!!!
Sign up just by letting me know via email so I can send you links to the group where the tasks will be posted. Grab a girlfriend cuz it’s more fun the more people we have!!
*please only sign up of you will participate – it’s only 7 days!*
Concerns I had – and you may have too:
What has he done for me lately?
I learned the hard way that marriage can’t work like that – someone has to be first. And if you start acting out of love you won’t have tally marks but it will likely come back to you. You can’t say I tried this or that and he didn’t respond – that’s not a productive mentality – you try this and that because you love him, not to get a response :)
He doesn’t deserve it!
Love is not something you give when deserved Plain and simple! My kids don’t deserve a toy or a treat some days - but they are loved 24/7 – that’s called unconditional love and marriage is the same way. It is harder than it sounds – but doing these simple things as a project or challenge makes them easier to do! If you need to vent to do it, that’s what us ladies in the fb group are for!!
But I don’t have a husband!
You don’t have to be married – just have a significant other And I don’t judge based on who that “other” is…
