Is there really ONE simple thing you can do to respect your husband and yourself?
You may remember my post that deals with Dr. John Gottman’s research on how negative sentiments impact marriage.
Dare you today to wildly extend grace, while not being a doormat. Speak truth in love, talk about how you feel, and listen well – instead of giving voice to the accuser. Don’t assume you know what another person’s motives are. You may be wrong. Don’t tell people what they think or feel. You can’t know for sure.
STOP jumping to conclusions – catch yourself when you feel negatively about someone and ask a question to them instead of assuming the worst – because love does the opposite. Love also remembers that our battle is not with flesh and blood, but rather with the principalities of this world.
Today’s respect tip is simply that – because you cannot be respectful of yourself or others if you are thinking the worst.
If you search for good, you will find favor;
but if you search for evil, it will find you!
And please know you are invited to join us this fall:
- The fall eCourse is filling up, so I know it doesn’t start for two more weeks (September 15) but if you want a spot, grab it while you can.
- If you are doing The Respect Dare in a small group this fall, we have some very casual videos (no where near the production of Daughters of Sarah, but the content is good) for you now.
- Also, Daughters is just 2 more weeks away from being available for you!! We’ll have Part 1 (sessions 1-7) access for you then, and Part 2 available 7 weeks after that. Be sure to sign up for the TIPS! and subscribe on the side to the blog – we’ll let you know when it’s available.
Love to you!
Hope you join us!
