November 2: This Week in Our 24-7 COMMITMENT Communities

This Week @

Let's End This Year With Lots of Giving

It's November! I know. Always a shocker right? It can't be already. 2015 has been a great year for 24-7 COMMITMENT and we want to end on the note that most exemplifies the spirit of this community - giving. We are calling it "A Big Give".

Here’s what you can expect:

  •  The most new free resources on our website that you’ve seen all year
  •  Feature spotlights on firefighters and their families who are BIG GIVERS (email us if there is a firefighter / family you want us to feature!)
  • Product giveaways
  • Discounts and prizes
  • Free memberships to our Marriage On Fire program


Not Your Typical Hallmark Variety of Thanksgiving. Go Deeper.

Look for daily encouragement starting with our "30 Days of Thanksgiving for Our Marriage" posted daily on the website and on Facebook - both the public page and posted in the Fire Wife Sisterhood and Honor Guard.

If you want to know the heart and soul behind WHY your financial support is important and appreciated and doing amazing things, I poured my heart out in this youtube video a couple weeks ago.    I’m sorry it’s 13 minutes long!  We are working on a shorter version too 🙂

Eat Like A Firefighter Community Challenge

Listen friends, there are over 5000 people registered in either the Fire Wife Sisterhood or Honor Guard communities.   There are around 1700 of you active in our Facebook Groups.   Our cookbook sales goal was 1500.  We are just over 500 so far.   If only 1 out of every 3 of you purchased a cookbook you'll be helping us in a great way.   This is our primary fundraiser for the entire fall season.   And it's so fun and easy!   $25 per cookbook.  Plus $5 shipping.  Books are arriving first week of December.

Copy of Untitled design a free bottle of wine!

Any member who sells 30 or more books, wins a free bottle of wine courtesy of Distant Cellars Winery.    Order forms and flyers for you to share are available at this link.

Take them to work!  Share them at the firehouse.   Collect orders and the money and submit one bulk order and we send you some wine 🙂

's a little freebie flying around the web this week.  We thought you might be interested 🙂


Um, wow.   That's one week's update?

Now we see all in one place how much is really happening in our 24-7 COMMITMENT communities.   All of this together = FUN and FRIENDSHIP and ENCOURAGEMENT and that all adds up to stronger marriages as a result.

Keeping it REAL and helpful always.  Email us if you ever need help
