30 Day Challenge for Wives {day 1}

I just read about this challenge over at "We are THAT family" and thought it's really cool!  So from today on for the next 30 days I'll be posting the daily challenges that are posted at "reviveourhearts.com."  I know I can't wait to start this challenge, who else is in with me?!  Even if you think your marriage is right where you want it, try and do it anyway.  Marriage is something that needs continual love and care.  So before I start babbling on and on here is the challenge for today (May 17):

Day One:
"The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life." Prov. 31:11-12
************************************************************************************
To refresh your memory...here's the 30-Day Encouragement Challenge...for the next 30 days:
* You can't say anything negative about your husband ...to your husband...or to anyone else, about your husband.
* Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband...to your husband...and to someone else, about your husband!
*************************************************************************************
To help you get started, have you ever thanked your husband for "choosing you" above all other women? He found you attractive as a person, and appreciated you. Though many circumstances in your marriage may have changed, let your husband know that you are glad God led you together, and that you want to be a blessing to him for the rest of your marriage. Let him know that he can trust you to be in his corner.
One of the best opportunities to express your gratitude is first thing in the morning. How do you greet your husband each morning? Is he confident in your love? Give him a "wake up call" that he'll never forget-a big "I love you" and an "I'm so glad I'm your wife!"


I'm starting this without Tyler knowing and I'll probably get away with doing it all secretly, unless I flat out tell him, since he hardly ever reads my blog :)  Love you despite your lack of reading of my blog, honey.

Oh and leave a comment letting me know if you're doing this, just cause it's fun to know other people who are joining in!  (ok you don't HAVE to leave a comment but it'd be fun for me if you did!)

Hope you all are having a fabulous Monday!

  3. I would love to do this! We did the Love Dare last year after having some troubles. It was a great help. However, my husband reads my blogs daily and so he will know if I post! haha. Maybe I will post the next day for the previous day.
