30 Day Challenge for Wives
My dear friend, Mrs. Rhonda Devine, recently shared a challenge to wives brought forth from Nancy Leigh Demoss earlier this year.
Are you ready?
We are challenged for 30 days to not criticize our husbands---in public and out.
Sounds good to me...how about it ladies? Are you game?
And for those of you who really like challenges---how about everytime you are about to criticize your husband instead of just being silent and biting your tongue (he might wonder why you are so quiet all month!) how about using that time as a reminder to build him up. So instead of silence you could build him up with your words. Here are some examples:
"Honey, the Lord has been doing so much in your life. I'm proud of you."
"You are so strong! Thank you!"
"I am so grateful that you work so hard so that I can be home with the children. I really appreciate that."
"I am glad that you are trying to be a good spiritual leader of our home."
"I love you, what would you like for dinner?"
I am looking forward to hearing how this is going...keep me posted!
