Dear Daughter, True Love is Hard.  But Falling in Love is Easy.

Dear Daughter, Falling in Love is Easy, but true love is hard.

By Eve Tuft I had Eve in mind to write this post for a long time now.  She mentions this in her post, but once upon a time when Eve still lived in Iowa (boo- come back!), she and I worked with the youth together.  She gave a lesson one time to the teenage girls and asked “Do you think it’s easy to fall in love?” And thinking the answer was going to be, “No! Marriage is HARD!”  They all chimed, “No”  And Eve was all “Heck yes it’s easy to fall in love!!  It’s hard to STAY in love.”… Read More

The 3 Worst Things You Can Do When You’re Wrong

What to do when you're wrong

By Rich Hey. Look. I’m going to try and break this to you gently. You and I both know that generally, you’re a good spouse. You usually pay attention to your partner’s needs.

This is What True Love Looks Like

By Celeste This was yesterday at the apple orchard. We had walked so far and were just sure there was a bridge here…. There wasn’t.

Share the Love Marriage series. Sharing one love story at a time.

Celeste here. I’ve never been much of a collector.  I had a decent collection of old Yoplait lids I had meant to send in (to benefit breast cancer?) at one point, but those didn’t really pan out….  But I’m starting a new collection!  I’ve decided to be a collector of love stories.  What better thing to collect, right?! With that, allow me to introduce a new series:  Share the Love I even made a sign! So fancy! In Share the Love posts, couples will be answering 3 questions:  1.  What is your love story? 2.  What is your favorite thing… Read More

Just for fun:  The Mormons and The Muppets Humor

By:  Celeste Yesterday’s post was on the serious side, so here’s a nice little post to lighten things up. Today it was announced that the guest performing artist for this year’s Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert will be the Muppets.  Rich posted this as his Facebook status and the following battle of wits ensued with my very witty friend Elisa: *It wouldn’t fit all in one screen shot, so it’s a little broken up, but still the same thread.**Update: So, turns out after sleeping on it, Rich and some of his friends had more jokes to add! So I’ve added them… Read More
