Introduction to Marriage Monday


Marriage is a hot topic these days. It seems, people either love it or they
hate it. Around here we really love it, and it’s a pleasure to serve as your hostess for this blog hop.

First & Third Monday of the Month

Hi, I'm e-Mom. Twice a month, a diverse group of married Christian women gather at Chrysalis for the purpose of encouraging other, sharing our stories, and learning from our collective wisdom. We’re young, old, seasoned, and newlywed, and we love talking about Christian marriage!

Group Topic Guidelines

You’re invited to join us. On Friday before the first and third Monday of each month, I post a general group topic for the coming Monday.
e.g. “Prayer in Marriage.” This year (2012) we're working our way through a list of
21 Hot Buttons
suggested by our Marriage Monday contributors.

Don’t be anxious about your entry. It doesn’t have to be witty, clever, or very long. Just speak from your experience, Bible knowledge, and your heart. You’re free to include photos, a video, a poem—whatever seems appropriate.
(Read a few examples here.)

Somewhere in your post, please link back to Chrysalis with a text link or one of the graphics below.

Once you’ve posted your thoughts, come back to here and leave your permalink in the Linky. Plan to spend half an hour or so visiting some of the other contributors. Be sure to introduce yourself and leave a few comments so we can get to know you. I hope we'll see you next time!

Giveaways & Open Topics

Still need convincing? Read Nine Ways Writing About Marriage Changes Things.” As further incentive to link up, I also offer Giveaways and “wild card” Open Topics periodically throughout the year.

Invite Your Friends

You probably agree that there’s an unlimited number of bloggers who would love to join us for Marriage Monday each month. You can help get the word out by posting the graphic somewhere in your sidebar. If you do, please consider yourself part of the Marriage Monday community. So glad to
meet you!
