Today I will share a cute little story with you about my daughters when they were itty bitty, just around 3 and 7. I (Dineen) hope you'll tune in to our Christmas edition of The Intentional Marriage broadcast over at CWATV.com for some great ideas to keep Jesus alive all year long in our children's minds and hearts, and I have two special gifts for two special commenters.

This month, think of what piece of advice you would give yourself as either an about to be new mom or a mother of little ones. Share some tid bit of wisdom or insight based upon one of these categories:
- See the Humor – humorous anecdotes and funny advice about the hilarity and fun in marriage and how to relax and not take ourselves too seriously.
- Powerfully Positive – wisdom and perspective that comes with living with our spouse over time. What wisdom or perspective would you share with your young self that would make married life more fun, fulfilling, and joyful for you and your spouse. How has the power of God worked in your marriage through forgiveness, commitment, and unconditional love.
- Practically Practical – Everyday things that show love to your spouse, yourself, your family. This can be anything. A favorite recipe or a story about letting the laundry go so you can watch a movie together. Anything practical that is edifying and helpful.
I also have two very special journals (these are the "special special gifts") for two people. One is the Embracing God journal by Anne Graham Lotz and the other is Praying the Names Of God journal by Ann Spangler. So if you post the meme on your blog, be sure to leave a comment here so we can draw names.
So, LINK UP and visit us today at The Intentional Marriage.

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.
