A little attention and common courtesy go a long way in marriage. “But, it’s Christmas time and I’m especially busy now,” I can hear you say. Have you been awfully busy lately? That’s what we all could probably say. But. When is life not busy?
Do we wives look like a blur rushing by our husbands? When’s the last time you really stopped and looked at him? Close your eyes and try to picture his face. No, I’m serious! If you can’t see his face very clearly, may I suggest you take a good long look at your wonderful husband tonight.
Well, on that note, please read my post over At the Well today and you’ll find a marriage tip that is said to have the potential to revolutionize anyone’s marriage.
And here are some recent posts you might have missed:

One thing that’s very important to note:
Don’t worry about missing any of the Conference sessions! With your ticket to the conference, you will have access to the playbacks for every session after the conference! Listen at your convenience–sipping your favorite hot beverage in your favorite chair or sofa by the fire, in whatever attire you’re most comfortable in. That’s my kind of conference!
The dates are November 1-3, 2011
I’m getting excited and I want as many of you to be able to attend as possible. Whether you’ve got a fantastic marriage, or a hurting one, or anything in between, we all need to grow and keep on learning.

One last favor to ask you all…I am very grateful to At the Well for sponsoring this giveaway and all the work they have put in to make this conference possible. Christian marriage is a representation of Christ and the Church, and as such, is being attacked by the enemy daily. We need to attack back, by building strong marriages. I would love to have a fantastic number attend this first of many conferences. Could you please let others know about the conference and this giveaway? I would so appreciate it!
Thanks for reading Faith’s Firm Foundation!
