Sometimes I feel like I just get off track.  Way off track.

Life is busy, and it’s all too easy in the hustle of my to-do-lists-strewn-days and sleep-deprived-nights to let my focus become fuzzy.

I didn’t have this post planned for today, but just in case you’re in need of some emotional clarity, too, I decided to pop in and share a few things.

First of all, two wonderful books I’m reading right now:

The Power of a Praying Wife, by Stormie Omartian

Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Choosing Gratitude, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
This book isn’t necessarily “about marriage”, but I promise it will change the kind of wife you are! Such a convicting, powerful book.

I woke up this morning and discovered 38 Best Bits of Marriage Advice A Woman Could Get, by Christy Fitzwater, in my Pinterest feed (thank you for sharing, Jami!). 

This blog post is quite possibly the best article I’ve ever read on marriage.  I plan to read and re-read this one until it “sticks”!

Before I leave my computer and start another busy day, one more thing-

Yesterday afternoon, I stumbled upon the 30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge from Revive Our Hearts and Nancy Leigh DeMoss.  I’m always looking for practical ways to cultivate less criticism and more encouragement in my daily role as a wife, so I decided a 30-day challenge fit the bill.

If this sounds like something you’d like to do too, sign up for the challenge and you’ll receive a daily “challenge” email in your inbox for thirty days.  

I’m sharing this with my friends and the ladies in my church, since I have a feeling I’m not the only wife who needs it!

  1. Thanks for the post! I’ll be signing up for the 30 days for sure. I Caught myself yesterday saying something that could be perceived as negative about my hubby. i know no one is perfect, but oh I immediately felt such shame. The reminders are always good.
