30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge

awesome.  another challenge.  go here to see where this challenge is coming from, and in the mean time discover an awesome resource as a Christian mom.
now, if you decide to take on this challenge your decision means that you truly want to be a blessing in your home. This challenge will also result in spiritual growth in your own life.  so... think about it long and hard before you go makin' up your mind!!!
now, i think it be a great idea (it's not mine, but still a good idea) to keep track of what God does in your marriage over this next month. if you keep a prayer journal, or a journal of the non-prayer type, or a diary, or just a notebook with several empty slices of paper inside it, take some EXTRA time (because honestly this challenge takes almost no time at all) and write down what you did for the day and how he responded. 
if you didn't click on the link, here's the challenge for the next 30 days:
* You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband, or to anyone else.
* Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband . . . and to someone else.
if you click on the above link, they will email you a daily reminder with a nice idea if you're running a blank on why you married mr. right.  this challenge is sweet and it reminds me of that movie "fireproof".  if you haven't watched that, and you're married, you should!  it's so good!!! 

"The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life." (Proverbs 31:11-12)

here's a great picture of my hubbaluv being the sweet daddy and uncle that he is!  i LOVE that he loves kids and isn't afraid to interact with them, even when they're teeny tiny.  he's passionate about the youth of society today and how we're all part of how they turn out.  he's a great daddy and he cares about that!

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

I was recently made fun of by a person at work for being my hubbys "biggest cheerleader" Which I found funny, isn't that my job?Isn't that why we get married to be in a loving supportive encouraging bond?
