Hello My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
For the past 16 days my wifey friends and I have been following Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives. I happened to be looking for the “Wife Encouragement Challenge for Husbands” equivalent and ran across another blog that has the challenge listed. I’m going to share the content of both of these challenges with you each day for 30 days so husbands and wives can do this challenge together. There are two purposes of this challenge (1) to help us to be come more spiritually connected with our spouse and (2) to learn God’s expectation of the way we conduct ourselves in marriage.
For the next 30 days, these two ground rules will be the basis of your relationship with your spouse:
- You can’t say anything negative about your spouse… to your spouse… or to anyone else about your spouse.
- Say something that you admire or appreciate about your spouse… to your spouse… or to someone else about your spouse every day.
Message to the Wives and Husbands: Wives, this challenge will require you to humble yourselves. Husband, this challenge will require contemplation, vulnerability, and action. I’d like to encourage you to keep track of what God does in your marriage over this next month. I hope you’ll take time to share what God does in your home as you bless and encourage your spouse.
Best of luck with the challenge,
