Want To Take Heather’s Marriage Challenge?

Q&AHello Jill,

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.


Do you have a list of verses/resources we can view to help us along in this challenge? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Heather

Dear Heather,

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

Here’s a video that might also be encouraging. (You can find more No More Perfect Mom videos here.)
