By committing to these two things…
your marriage just might be transformed.
Note: This challenge is NOT being hosted by me.
However, after many many weeks (if not months) of acting like a total jerk to my husband (we have a crazy marriage story in case you’re wondering, but are still together and moving forward, PRAISE GOD!), I thought this might be a helpful challenge.
As much as I feel justified in pointing fingers towards my husband, or blaming him for the ways he may have hurt me, I KNOW I need to take responsibility for my own actions and attitude.
I hope you’ll consider joining me in the….
No, you don’t need to sign up or enter your email anywhere.
To keep it really simple, you just have to commit to these TWO things:
- 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!
You can just focus on the two things mentioned above.
However, if you know anything about Revive Our Hearts, they always go above and beyond ( I LOVE their ministry).
So for every day, for 30 days, they provide:
- A Bible verse
- A tiny paragraph explaining the focus of the day
- An action step (I NEED THIS! So practical!)
- A small prayer you could pray that helps you verbalize your commitment to God and your husband, specifically in the focus area for that day.
How great is that? And it’s free!
If you’d like, you can reply and let me know you’re doing this too! We can keep each other accountable. I’ve also shared this with several women from my church and I’m excited a few of them are on board!

How’s It Going for Me?
I started the challenge and only did it for about three days and already noticed quite the difference in our marriage. Even without totally or perfectly focusing on the different challenges for those days, and just avoiding saying anything negative about my husband, it really made a difference in my attitude.
Because I knew that if I wasn’t going to say anything negative, I couldn’t be thinking anything negative about him. So I had to start getting those rabbit trail destructive thoughts under control. And there’s so much power in what we think about and how that affects our attitudes overall!
Even though I skipped a few days now (of actually going into the PDF and reading that day’s challenge), it feels like our marriage is still reaping the benefits of this attitude shift! So if you’re on the fence about this, I definitely encourage you to give it a try!
