Piggyback Ride Anyone? (Giveaway)

“Faster Mommy! Faster Daddy!” cheer the gleeful voices of our daughters. What’s not to love about a piggyback race!?! Justin and I can tell you, we were the ones doing all the work! And so it is with piggyback riding, the rider gets to enjoy the other persons hard work.

I believe that our marriages can apply the foundations of a good piggyback ride. If you want some fun, need a creative idea for a date or just need some motivation or inspiration to keep running the marriage race, piggyback off the creativity and ingenuity of others. Justin and I will readily admit that we have a piggyback marriage. Romance is not our thing so if we desire to up the romance, we look to people who have ideas that can help us out. Communication problems? We will talk to other married couples, read a book or find a way to work on it. Whatever situation you encounter, chances are there is someone who has “been there, done that and has the bumper sticker to prove it” as my mother says.

Today we want to share some great sites that provide opportunities for you to take a “piggyback ride” on their creativity, romance and general marriage advice.

  1. I am fairly new to your site. In fact, up until June, I didn’t know that anyone was blogging about so many of these marriage issues that just aren’t talked about in church. I wish I had had these resources in the first year of our marriage–instead of finding them in our 35th year! God wouldn’t have so many of my tears saved in His bottle, as the Psalm promises He does. So, thank you for being there! And if I am chosen in your drawing, I have already downloaded Sheila’s two e-books. They’re fabulous!

  2. (Theresa) Thanks for the website referrals. It’s difficult to do an online search for inspiring and creative ideas for a healthy sex life.

  3. Thank you for the list! It is so helpful to have resources during this season of our marriage…. kids, home schooling and a church plant! We appreciate you and your sowing into our lives through this blog.

  4. All good ideas and resources. I am not that creative, either, but my Mom has always said “Being creative does not always mean being original, it is knowing how to take someone else’s idea and make it work for you.”
    Thanks for the great ideas!

  5. I read to love, honor and vacuum and I’m glad to find your blog too. I’ve been wanting to get her book, so it would be awesome to win it!

  6. It has been great to dive into all the resources that you and your fellow CMBA partners have to offer. Thanks for sharing from the heart!
