The perpetual format of our lovely little calendar creates a gift that will support their marriage 365 days a year. Interactive messages are intended to empower communication, humorous reminders of chores; forgiveness after disagreements; the importance of making space for spiritual growth and so much more. The format throughout is a "Quote" for each day followed by words of wisdom (and experience). Each page also features space at the bottom to write in family occasions: birthdays, anniversaries, deaths - helpful for remembering everyone year after year. They will never forget a family event or special occasion! A couple on our staff uses this every morning by conveniently placing it on top of the kitchen microwave for morning reading. They have found it especially helpful following a disagreement or minor annoyances.
