Being Intentional - Marriage & Relationship Goals {link up}

It's time for another Marriage and Relationship Goals post again. I love writing these posts because It gives me a reason to better our relationship and when I put my goals out there in the World Wide Web, it adds an element of accountability. Anyway, all my goals this month involve being intentional about our relationship. However, I want to be intentional in 3 different aspects of our relationship. So here are the ways I'm gonna be intentional in our marriage this month...

I want to be intentional about praying together every night before bed, before we eat. and at any time during the day that we see fit. And I don't mean the quick, well-rehearsed little "Thank you for our food" prayers. I mean we are going to talk about what we need to pray about and we will pray for our marriage. our future, and anything else we need and want to share with each other and God.

Also, I want to read the bible together. We started each reading a chapter out loud and discussing but we haven't done a good job of keeping up with it and doing it every day. So that's the goal for November.

We need to get away from our technology and spend more time in really conversation with each other. And I say this in a lot of goals posts and it never gets done because I don't actually set tangible goals and boundaries. So this time, I'm gonna set the goal to have no technology at dinner (this one includes TV) and no cellphones, tablets, or computers between dinner and bed time. And maybe no cellphones, tablets, or computers on Sunday afternoons either. We'll see.

Another thing we haven't been intentional about is a regular date night. I would like to shoot for a date night once per week. I know that's difficult and won't happen every week, but we'll try. And TV on our couch doesn't count. Well, maybe it could if we actually plan it and watch a fun movie we haven't seen and do a special dinner with it. The point is to be intentional so I want to make the dates special and to actually feel like we are actually on a date, not just together running errands or relaxing. Does that make sense? And getting into the busy holiday season is no excuse for our relationship to be put on back burner.
