Love Your Husband Challenge: Day One

Do you find your marriage growing stale and in need of revival? Perhaps you desire more intentionality as a wife? Sister, I can tell you that this challenge will change things for you, just as it has for me. Commit with me to hiding these Scriptures and new habits in your heart this week. Just growing more purposeful in these small ways will awaken beauty in your marriage!

DAY 1:

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.” Proverbs 15:1-2 (NKJV)

Do you find yourself speaking harshly to your husband? It is so easy to do, but our words have the power to either destroy or to create new life in the heart of our husbands. Choose life! When you speak words of life, you will be filled with peace as well.

Faith-Filled Idea:

If you feel like making a negative comment to your husband today, close your lips and instead open your heart to the Lord in prayer. It is better to say nothing than to say something damaging or regretful. Speak only kind words today and for the remainder of the week. Choose one thing you can thank your husband for or compliment him on each day. This new habit will become easier and easier as you practice.


Lord, give me words that bring life to my husband. Fill my heart with self-control, that I would be able to honor You in all I say and do in my marriage.

  1. I see this was from a few years back but so timely! My marriage needs a revival but above all, my heart does! Help me, Father! And help my husband. We can do all things through Christ Jesus!

  2. Definitely perfect timing for us. We have been going through a lot lately and we are both trying to do the best for our family as a whole. Unfortunately, we have forgotten what it was like to actually do for each other and ourselves. I am not an easy person to get along with and I can be very harsh with my words. I am going to use this oppurtunity to do better and be better. I just sent a text to my husband thanking him for all he does for us and for taking on 2 jobs to help provide since I am furloughed due to covid. Its not easy working all day and overnight but he is doing it for all of us and I have to give credit where credit is due. Thanks for this challange.

    1. You are on your way Jennifer! I would also challenge you to respeaking the truth of who you are in Christ and what you are capable of with the power of the Holy Spirit inside of you as a Believer.

      With God’s help, you are kind and use your words to draw your husband and children closer to you!

  3. It is so difficult to speak any words when your husband is making it clear he doesn’t want to make this marriage work.
