The key to thriving in your marriage each and every year is to take time to share what you are thankful for in your marriage.


This is a time when the busyness of every day life is put aside so that you can  honor your spouse.

Grab a piece of paper, write down 5-10 reasons why you are thankful for your marriage, and then sit down with your spouse and share.

This week we go over our “I’m Thankful For…” list with each other and you.

During this time we listen, acknowledge, and respond to what we say to each other.

When you dig deeper into your emotional intimacy will pay dividends in your marriage for years to come.

I’m Thankful For… is one time during the year when each of you can let loose and pour out all the goodness that has and is happening in your marriage.

It’s a time to celebrate all that you are thankful for in your life.

Go on and get that list going so you can share it with your spouse.

5 thoughts on “144: I’M THANKFUL FOR…

  1. I am thankful for a wife who is willing to expand her horizons.

    My wife never turns me down but I have been communicating to her that that isn’t enough, that I also need her enthusiastic participation. Participation that goes beyond her just having orgasms and doing what I want when I ask. Participation that is passionate. Where she gets turned on by turning me on and by my reactions to what she does.

    Since she never initiates I have communicated to her that I need her to be more passionate as a “compensation” so that I know deep in my heart that she really WANTS and DESIRES me and isn’t just being compliant.

    I have been seeing this change growing in her and it’s fantastic! I am very thankful for this! 🙂

    • This is fantastic to hear Joseph. We know that this is something that you have been working on communicating to Jean for some time. It’s a testament to both of you willing to engage each other in conversation. Her willingness to make these changes even as hard as they are for her.

      You have a fantastic wife and being thankful for her is awesome!

  2. That’s an awesome tradition to have in marriage! My husband and try to make a habit of regularly writing to each other to let the other one know how much they are appreciated!

  3. I found your podcast in the fall of 2017 and after a few current episodes at the time, went back to the very beginning to really get the story behind ONE and the two of you. I am very behind (almost into 2013!) but enjoy listening chronologically. I have to comment here because the commentary in this podcast about different work out styles had me cracking up. Just last night my husband (married 2 years now) and I were working out together in our basement, and I was doing a very intense circuit session while he was casually doing various weightlifting exercises. He was talking and making comments and asking me questions and I finally had to say “Can you please stop talking and just do your workout??”

    I completely relate to Alisa and it sounds like my husband is just like Tony. I honestly was sitting in my car listening and laughing out loud.

    Thank you for doing what you do. I have introduced multiple friends to this podcast as I know the impact you’re having in your marriage and certainly see in my own.

    God bless!
