After reading No More Perfect Moms, I decided to present a challenge to some dear friends: Go a whole month with out saying or doing anything negative towards our husbands.
I’m personally in the habit if rearranging the dishes in the dishwasher or re-folding laundry my way. After your book, I realized that my actions scream “my way it better and you did it all wrong”. I don’t want to be ungrateful for my husband’s willingness to help.
I think your idea is a fabulous one! Good for you for taking what you read and applying it in such a practical way! Here are some Bible verses that can help you in your challenge:
“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you.” Colossians 3:13
“Treat everyone with dignity.” I Peter 2:17
“Pride leads to conflict.” Proverbs 13:10
“Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18
“The tongue has the power of life and death.” Proverbs 18:21
“Watch your words and hold your tongue; you’ll save yourself a lot of grief. Proverbs 21:23
“What you say flows from what is in your heart.” Luke 6:45
