Is complaining ruining your marriage?
And over time, this behavior creates a climate of negativity that sucks the life out of people.
(although we taught our dog to “grumble” on command and think it’s pretty cute – it also stopped her fussing randomly about other things)
Here’s a great article from Psychology Today about what complaining does to you and others.
Here’s one on what counselors say is the #1 reason for divorce.
And while we’re at it, let’s not damage our relationship by “phubbing.” (in other words, stay off your phone when you are with people!)
Most importantly, here’s what God has to say:
The rest of the verse is “so that you can become blameless and pure children of God.”
I don’t know about you, but I need to work on this more. Check this awesome post for more…
What about you? Are you a complainer? Are you disagreeable? Do you see yourself finding common ground in conversations first, or finding fault?
EXTRA CREDIT: Answer the last question in the book about why acts of kindness do NOT make you a doormat. 🙂
Dare you to obey God’s Word today. Double dog Dare you to make today a complaint-free day!
Looking forward to hearing from you today!
Love to you,
One more thing?
It’s not a small thing.
Seriously, if you lead women’s studies, and you want to do marriage ministry that makes a crazy wild lasting difference, you need to pray about joining us for Boot Camp.
We have marriage and family ministry for you – ministry that makes a difference – it’s His, but it’s amazing, and we’d love to help you grow as a leader – and make a greater impact in the neck of the woods He’s entrusted to YOU.
I’d like YOU to pray about Boot Camp – September 7-12, 2016. More info HERE.
If you won’t go, whom will He send?
But maybe you shouldn’t go. Here’s more on the reasons you should NOT attend Boot Camp.
This is different – it’s becoming part of a ministry that has a lasting effect, a dramatic impact – a discipleship method that deepens a woman’s relationship with God, her husband, and others – and over 95% of our participants say so!
And just so you know, we have a team of people across 5 states – and none of us, myself included, make any money off of any of what we do.
It’s not about that for us.
I recently discovered that many of the same elements in Celebrate Recovery and AA (two proven programs) are in Daughters of Sarah. There’s a touch of them in RD, too, especially if you do the videos and the small group experience. The training method is unlike anything else you’ve probably done. Okay, I’ll stop now.
I get excited. The women that keep coming back do so because they LOVE what they see God doing, too.
