34 Daily Marriage Quotes to Inspire And Encourage You

Words are powerful. Forget what you heard about sticks and stones. Never underestimate the power words can have in your life and over your marriage. I’m big on inspirational quotes and affirmations. I’m the one that will spend ample time reading through greeting cards for my husband to find the perfect one. Powerful quotes can change your mood in an instant. So I’m always reading, writing and saving quotes to reference at a later date.

    I could write everyone of these out on a sticky and place them all over my house! Seriously these are great reminders. I’ve been avoiding starting my #LoveBrownLove series because I am afraid to face all the love when I’m feeling lost in mine. Thanks for these quotes and the motivation to get those stories documented so I can learn from them.
