CLOSED: The 100 Day Promise Book Giveaway
Nonnie is a dear friend of ours. She is the ultimate mom. Not only is she super "hip", but her four kids are just adorable--and well behaved to boot. She's a constant resource of fun family activities. Not only does she always thinks of the most amazing things to do with her family, but she shares her wonderful ideas with others. Many of her fabulous ideas have been incorporated into my life. Starting today we will adding "Mondays with Nonnie" to our blog. Each Monday she will provide us with something we can do that will enrich our families. Today is the first day of November and the perfect time for us to focus on what is really important.
Nonnie's family is a strength in our community. The King family strive to put others first and are wonderful examples to those around them. Nonnie's husband Brian recently wrote The 100 Day Promise.
"The idea for the 100 Day Promise began while on a road trip home from Boston over Thanksgiving. We had an argument and I realized I would have to break out of the negative state we were in and muster the will to move us forward again. I sat there pondering many of the lessons I've learned over the years about how to have happy relationships. I wondered what would happen if I not only broke out of this negative situation, but tried to act with the same selfless mindset for an extended period. So, I thought I'd try an experiment. I promised myself that for 100 Days I would focus completely on my wife's happiness. I kept a record each day of my progress. In the book I also consider whether it was worth the extra effort and how we were able change through the experience. The book also gives a unique insight into the little struggles and triumphs involved in developing a loving and lasting relationship." Brian King author
Can you imagine setting that goal and then seeing it to fruition? I know it would be hard, but I can also imagine how rewarding it would be for a relationship. Today is the first day of November. For the entire month of November I am going to live The 100 Day Promise. There may not be 100 days in November, but it's a start. Join me.
