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.

The Generous Husband/The Generous Wife – Day in day out Paul & Lori provide a mixture of inspiration, practical advice and wisdom to give you a vision of what marriage is meant to be and can be. Take the opportunity to be reminded daily how to grow your marriage.
