Every Monday on Instagram and Facebook, we post a weekly marriage challenge (using the hashtag #marriagemondaychallenge). It can be anything from reading a Scripture passage together to planning a date night! We’ve seen how much of an impact small things can have on our marriage, and we want to encourage others to do the same. You can also receive the weekly challenges by signing up for our email list, as we include the challenge in our weekly newsletter that goes out on Monday.
Here are some examples of challenges we’ve posted:
One of our favorite things to do is play board games together. And since we’re in need of some fun this week (thanks to sickness in our household and a busy week ahead), this week’s challenge is a fun one: have a game night together. It’s what we do when we realize we’ve been watching too much TV. 😬😅
Some of our favorite (2-player) games include Scrabble, Dominion, Ticket to Ride, and Rack-O. Share your faves with us!
In Galatians 5:22-23, we read about the 9 fruits of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Pick one to cultivate this week with your spouse. Encourage each other and challenge each other. Let’s get each other to heaven! 🙌🏼 Which fruit of the Spirit will you pick? We’re going to work on gentleness this week!
We have completely different love languages. Jen likes acts of service and quality time. Logan likes words of affirmation and physical touch. So sometimes we need a little reminder to love each other in the ways that are most effective. That means our challenge this week is to be intentional about each other’s love languages this week. Just wait and see the difference it makes! (And if you aren’t familiar with the five love languages, there’s an online quiz you can take! Plus the book is really helpful.)
