30 Day Husband-Encouragement Challenge

by Kelly Crawford

I think I posted this last year, but I thought with Father’s Day around the corner, it would be a great time to look at it again.  As a wife, my primary concern each day should be “how can I help my husband?”  After all, that is what I was created for–to be a helper, suitable for him.  That entails a lot; and I’m so selfish, often helping him is not at the top of my list.  More often than not, I’m devising a list of ways I think he could help me.  (We’re so obsessed with self.)

Nancy Leigh DeMoss challenges women in a very practical, day-by-day “to do” assignment.  Sometimes it takes someone else giving us a daily reminder to keep our focus off of ourselves.  Can you imagine how the church would strengthen if wives got serious about their roles as helpers, really seeking to encourage their husbands, seeking to be the one place where he knows he can come for shelter, the one place where he can be built up despite his short-comings–where he feels safe enough to fail, looking at him with eyes of love and admiration?    What incredible men we would have if we treated them the way we wanted them to be!  (I’m totally convicted.)

Are you up for the challenge?

Meagan from The Jones Family Blog posted this last year on her blog site, I think it was November 2008. I printed everything out, but I have to admit, I didn’t actually take the time to DO the challenge. I actually forgot I had printed-out this information. Your post reminded me of what I need to do: “GET BUSY!” (smiles)

An awesome challenge. I did this one once before…but I think I’ll do it again.

I’m in…my husband is too great. Although if he weren’t, I suppose I’d do it to help him become great. Thanks for a great idea!

I loved this challenge the first day I saw it. A good man will reciprocate … believe me.

I like this because even in the best of marriages, the relationship can still be strengthened further. Thank you for posting this.

I love this idea!

I loved this but personally had a hard time keeping up each day with the new thoughts she gives for each day.

Then a friend sent me this “30 week husband encouragement” where it takes the same “30 days”, but spreads them out for each week…so I could really focus on that new thought or attitude for the whole week. It is a pretty neat compilation of things this lady put together for it, I’ve been meaning to write about it on my blog, but have not yet!

So here it is if you are interested or anyone else for that matter!

I’m in! It is so easy to get bogged down with school, and housework, and church service – that sometimes my wonderful husband gets lost in the shuffle. Where I do seek to honour him in different ways, I am all for leaning on some blogworld ladies for fresh ideas!
