175 Best Date Ideas by Alida Quittschreiber at The Realistic Mama ($9.99) ** SEE AMAZON REVIEWS HERE **
Step up your date night game and make some unforgettable memories with your husband, one epic date at a time with the 175 Best Date Ideas bucket list.
Ronni’s Review: 127 pages. I kind of wish I had this book in printed form rather than ebook! It seems like a great little handbook to flip back and forth between date ideas. I like that they clearly show which dates are “Go Out” dates and which are “Stay In” dates. Makes it easy for those of us with kids and no money for babysitters. 🙂 Overall, I really liked it. Probably best suited for those in their 20s and below, but eh, I still thought a lot of the dates were cute even if I’m in my 30s now. Whatev. 🙂
30 Day Marriage Challenge by Becky Moseley at Tales of Beauty for Ashes ($6.99) ** SEE AMAZON REVIEWS HERE **
The 30 Day Marriage Challenge is full of daily challenges that will spice up your marriage and encourage you to change the behaviors that are hurting your marriage to make your marriage the best it can be.
Ronni’s Review: 79 pages. I found the introduction to be a be overly optimistic in saying that for couples who want an amazing marriage that these challenges will help your marriage be the best it can be. But obviously, this book is meant for the average couple who is not currently seriously struggling with any issues. It seems to be more of a “relationship tuneup” type of book. HOWEVER, this is not to say that I don’t find value in this book. In fact, I actually think a lot of the suggestions in there are excellent ideas. And I like how this could be taken on by one spouse solely to help give their marriage a boost; it’s not required for both spouses to participate. Note that Day 28 is “Let God into your marriage”, so if you are non-religious, you’ll probably want to skip over this day.
30 Days of Loving Your Man by Caroline Allen at The Modest Mom Blog ($5.99)
Reconnect with your husband and spice up your marriage with the 30 Days of Loving Your Man challenge and printable love notes.
Ronni’s Review: Only 10 pages (and not worth $6 in my opinion) and not really a book at all but instead printable cards. They are quite cute though. My first though was that you could print them on cardstock and tie them up in a cute red ribbon and include them in a wedding or anniversary present to a wife (since they are pretty female to male specific). It also comes with some cute little love sayings you could print on cards. Again, this really is adorable, but you could probably find something similar as a free printable on pinterest.
7 Days of Sex Challenge by Tony DiLorenzo at One Extraordinary Marriage ($12) ** SEE AMAZON REVIEWS HERE **
The 7 Days of Sex Challenge makes it easy for busy couples to find intimacy and connection by offering you new and creative ideas to spice up your sex life.
Ronni’s Review: So I actually like this idea. Basically, it encourages a married couple to have sex every night for a week in order to set aside time for and improve intimacy. It gives suggestions for different things to try each night. I’ll probably read through this again more later.
The Magic Cake by Jennifer Lehr at Jennifer Lehr ($5.49) ** SEE AMAZON REVIEWS HERE **
Discover the seven qualities or ingredients we need to develop within ourselves to “make a magic cake” with our beloved in The Magic Cake.
Ronni’s Review: 157 pages. So I only skimmed the preface and first couple chapters, BUT I think I’m going to step out and say that unless something really surprising pops up, that I’m highly recommending this one. And here’s why. First, it’s secular and non-religious. Which, while I’m thankful that it largely within religious communities that life-long marriage is strongly encouraged – it’s sometimes difficult for non-religious (or couples of non-shared religious belief) to find adequate resources that still encourage life-long marriage but don’t only resort to religious texts as guidance. Second, it hits at the heart of how to have a successful relationship by being a relationship-minded individual. So…yeah, I will come back to read this book in more depth. But I think it’s going to be a good one. Also, it looks like the author has an intriguing online relationship program called WeConcile that I’d like to explore more about.
ALSO, this is actually one of the bonuses included in the bundle and not show in the picture above, but I really love that MELT couples massage videos are included in this bundle. Be sure to check them out as well!
