While researching topics of marriage for our new book, I ran into this blog post, 30 Days to A Better Wife. While we have already implemented some of the writer’s suggestions, the post got me thinking.
What if, for the month of September, I led a 30 Day Wife Challenge?
Our marriages should be one of the most important relationships in our lives. However, we often spend very little time nurturing and investing in this relationship. I understand how it happens. Life gets busy!
Many of us work non-stop, whether we work outside the home or inside the home. If you are a mama, you are on call 24/7. Baby’s need diaper changes, children skip nap times, dinners don’t cook themselves, children need to be fed… non-stop… all day long… errands need to be run, households need to be managed, and toilets need to be scrubbed (sometimes daily when you have a young son learning how to use the toilet properly) – can I get an AMEN??
By the time it is bedtime, we are D.O.N.E., sometimes just barely holding on, unable to give just.one.more.thing.
Unfortunately, in these exhaustion-filled days, we have the tendency to unintentionally put off investing in our marriages. We assume the next day, the next week, the next year, we will have more time. Date night? Hmm… how about next week? And when next week rolls around, date night has been overtaken by something else… something that must have been important, but you can’t even remember what that something was anymore.
Friends, time is the one commodity we can never gain more of! So, if we want a love&respect-filled marriage, we must make our marriage a priority. So, why not in the chaos of today – we start now!!
Whether your marriage is struggling or thriving, this challenge is for YOU! If you believe that one intentional act of love, each day for 30 days can change or improve your marriage, come join me HERE! Each day for the month of September, I will be sharing one tangible act of love to remind our husbands how much we appreciate and love him!
