This post is the first in a new series called “Check This Out.”  The purpose of these posts is to introduce you to other great blogs and online resources that can help you achieve the extraordinary in your marriage.  I am particularly excited to highlight fellow marriage proponents who you may not be aware of (yet).  Enjoy!

In this inaugural edition of “Check This Out,” I’m excited to introduce you to a site called ONE Extraordinary Marriage.  The site is authored by husband and wife duo Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo.  You may recognize Tony and Alisa as contributors to the Love Everyday project.

I think it’s safe to say that a primary topic you’ll find discussed at ONE is intimacy and sexuality.  The DiLorenzo’s are fellow Christians, and they do everything with class.  The ability to handle such a delicate topic in a high-quality way is one of the things that sets ONE Extraordinary Marriage apart in a growing selection of great relationship blogs.

Another unique thing about this site is the fantastic Podcast component.  Tony and Alisa take to the microphones each week to deliver a quality podcast on a given topic.  Their most recent show focused on the topic of how we communicate through touch.

I’m curious to hear what you think of the “Check This Out” feature in general.  And, if you have a chance to check it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts on ONE Extraordinary Marriage as well.

  1. Dustin,

    I too am a big fan of One Extraordinary Marriage – and of your blog as well. Thanks for standing up for strong marriages – we need many more voices just like yours.

    All the best,

    Scott @ The Marriage Garden

    1. Thanks so much, Scott! I greatly appreciate your continued support and your own strong voice in the stand for marriage.

  2. Dustin,
    This is a great idea for a new series – we have enjoyed their blog too, in the little time we’ve known about them. I love the way you encourage each other rather than compete as bloggers. An excellent example of what it means to “out do one another in showing acts of kindness.”

    We’re looking forward to more!

    1. Thank you, Tom and Debi! It is my continued discovery of excellent resources such as your blog that motivated me to start doing this series.

  3. Scott, Tom, & Debi – Glad to meet you three though Engaged Marriage. Glad you are enjoying ONE as it is a passion of mine and Alisa’s to help folks in their marriages. I personally have an abundance mentality instead of a scarcity mentality. It is so much better for us to work together and serve our communities. God is glorified and everyone wins.

    Looking forward to seeing you guys on ONE.

    1. Absolutely, Tony! I struggle with my own selfish mindset sometimes, but I definitely subscribe to the theory that “a rising tide floats all boats”!

  4. Dustin,
    Thank you for the great blog suggestion! I love your blog and am now a fan of the DiLorenzo’s as well. Thank you!

    1. Thanks Shannon. We love your insights and your encouragement. We are still planning on renewing our vows in October because of your comments after our Fireproof podcast.
