A male friend of mine, Kevin, noticed that wives were participating in the 30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge and decided to create a Marriage Improvement Challenge for men. The challenge is 28 days which puts it in sync with the husband encouragement challenge wives are doing! A double challenge in one household is a recipe for limitless love, selflessness and growth. Welcome to the challenge! Try it, if you dare, but just know that you run the risk of improving your marriage, honoring your wife and cultivating a lifestyle that reflects selflessness. Are you ready? Well, men, let’s dive in!
Hey wives! Lately it has been really hard for me to encourage and pray for my husband. I have spent more time complaining about all the things that are not right, instead of using it to intentionally lift him up and pray for him. I found the 30- Day Husband Encouragement Challenge online several months ago and loved it! I had planned to follow through with all 30 days, but I only made it to the second week. I would like to give it another shot and would love for you to join me!
SNAPSHOT OF THE CHALLENGE:
- The purpose of the challenge is to encourage your husband!
- Your decision means that you truly want to be a blessing in your home.
- This challenge will also result in spiritual growth in your own life.
- For thirty days, don’t say anything negative to or about your husband. Also, say something positive to and about your husband each day.
I have posted the first five days below. Here is the link for the remaining 25 days from Revive Our Hearts!
Let’s get started!
“The scariest thing a woman ever offers is to believe that she is worth pursuing, to open her heart up to pursuit, to continue to open her heart and offer the beauty she holds inside, all the while fearing it will not be enough.” – John & Stasi Eldredge
The other day, I was asked to share my proposal story. I hadn’t shared in a while and found myself giggling and blushing like a high school girl as I described the magical night.
It was a beautiful summer day in the month of June. I had spent the day with my girls getting dolled up. We had lunch at my favorite restaurant, Wishbone, and afterwards spent the day shopping and pampering ourselves with manicures and pedicures. My boyfriend at the time, now husband, asked me to reserve the evening for him. When he picked me up, he was in a tux, looking immaculate. After greeting each other with a hug and kiss, he escorted me out the door and we walked down the street hand in hand. Now ladies, I had on heels and was hoping the destination was nearby because my feet were already killing me.
