There are dozens of tools designed to improve productivity at work, and the population incorporating them into their daily lives continues to grow. Today, Lovendar launches its new romantic reminder program, designed to help committed couples keep their love lives romantic, exciting, and successful using their computers’ calendar software.
Lovendar is a romance planner that works with the popular Microsoft Outlook® calendar program for PCs. Throughout the year, Lovendar delivers 170 romantic ideas and reminders to users’ desktops and PDAs. At $17.50 for the downloadable version, this romantic calendar keeps customers in strong relationships for two, for less than the cost of dinner for one.
The program is sold exclusively at http://www.lovendar.com
Lovendar is available in His and Her editions. Both provide gender-specific ideas for individuals. When used by a couple, the programs complement each other, keeping partners on track for a mutually attentive relationship.
As we all know, most relationships don’t fall apart due to lack of intent, but rather lack of attention. Simple gestures are left undone in our busy lives. Lovendar addresses this problem by helping individuals prioritize romance on a regular basis. Some examples of the action prompts Lovendar users regularly receive include
For Him: -- Bring home a fresh cut flower and a hand written note. Finish this sentence in your note: I really love you when you ... -- This weekend, remind her of your first date, and recreate some or all of it. -- Text her "I am thinking of you." Do it now. For Her: -- Junk food night. Serve his favorite junk food for dinner by candlelight. -- Write down five romantic things he has done lately and share how it made you feel. -- Leave a love note in his underwear drawer tonight.
Lovendar is a valuable tool for anyone in a committed relationship. In addition to being a self-help tool to keep love alive, it’s also a great gift for romantic holidays.

On Wednesday, May 23rd, my daughter Chandler graduated from Kindergarten. I know a graduation from kindergarten, what’s the big deal. Besides, what do they know at that age right? Well the answer is quite a lot. (Best Money, I’ve ever spent) During the ceremony, the teachers did a quick overview of the myriad lessons they learned and I was amazed. They learned:
• Low/Upper addition and subtraction
• Over 20 poems
• How to read numbers such as 754,456,969,848. This may not seem like much to us adults, but to a five year old thats an amazing feet.
• How to write in cursive
• And so much more. ..
As I looked at my wife when our daughter received her certificate, she was crying. Because we believe, that a child is truly a gift from God and we are simply stewards over them. Our job is to guide them into positive choices and give them the tools to, at a later stage in life, make these positive choices for themselves.
I believe we are setting a good example for our daughters to follow, as parents. What about you?
Please review the video
Pass it on, Please…

What does it take for a husband to be the romance leader in his marriage? I don’t know if many husbands have given this much thought.
I asked myself “Can leadership principles that work in business be applied to marriage and romance?” At first blush, I thought that the two worlds are too different. However, upon closer examination, I could see how the business principles of mission, vision, and values are tools that can help to get a marriage on track.
Most companies have a Mission Statement which describes the reason the company exists. The idea behind a mission is that it gives everyone in the company a good idea of the direction in which the company is moving. It is the company’s raison d’etre.
Should a marriage have a Mission Statement?
I think it should. And the mission should be a big one. I believe that God puts a man and woman together to become one flesh so that they can together fulfill a purpose that they are uniquely suited to fulfill. Each of them has talents, abilities, and skills which when combined enable them to make a significant impact on a specific group of people. In my case, my wife and I are uniquely gifted to be leaders of leaders. The combination of our education, experiences, personalities, and talents place us squarely in a role of influencing leaders.
A Mission Statement on its own does little to fuel the passion of the employees of a company. That is where the Vision Statement comes in. The Vision Statement is a description of what the future will look like when the company accomplishes its Mission Statement.
What will the future look like when your family accomplishes its Mission Statement?
Whose lives will be changed because their paths crossed those of you and your wife? The Bible says that without a vision the people perish. Could it be that many marriages are ending up in divorce because they have no vision for their marriage beyond raising children?
With a Mission Statement and Vision Statement, there is a sense of where to go and what it will feel like when you get there. How can a company assure that the employees stay on track along the journey? Core Values or a Value Statement serve that purpose. The Core Values are the principle beliefs that are used to guide decisions. In the heat of the moment when emotions are high, Core Values help employees to make the right decisions. Therefore, Core Values must be consistent with the Mission and Vision Statements.
What is the role of Core Values in a marriage?
These non-negotiable items navigate a couple through the difficulties that all marriages face. A couple with Core Value established can keep disagreements from spiraling out of control.
The next three articles in this series will delve deeper into each of these three concepts. You will receive pointers on how to develop a Mission Statement, Vision Statement, and Core Values.
