Winter, Fall, Spring, and Summer: which best describes your marriage? Over the years, I’ve spent time in all four seasons. But I personally prefer Spring and Summer. I like it when my marriage is filled with hope, excitement, peace, and we both feel connected. How do you create that kind of marriage? When I wrote my book: The Four Seasons of Marriage, I discovered seven strategies for spending more time in Spring and Summer. One of those strategies is choosing a winning attitude. As long as you say, “There’s no hope. It’s gone on too long.” You stay locked into a winter marriage. When you look for the positive, and put your hand in the hand of God, Winter can melt into Spring.
