ABC's of a Godly Home Day I

Day I - Inspire and initiate

Spiritual Challenge Day I - Inspire. Ephesians 4:29 tells us "Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it my give grace to those who hear".  Proverbs 12:25 "Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad." Proverbs 16:24 "Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body." There are so many verses in the bible that refer to our speech which means it must be pretty important to God. Our words can defnitely tear someone down or lift them up. Today your spiritual challenge is to pick a verse about speech to meditate on and then to use your words to inspire someone instead of tearing them down. THINK about your words today before you speak them. Are they True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary and Kind? Make a conscious effort today to inspire your husband and children.

Physical Challenge Day I - Initiate. Today you are going to initiate your schedule. I want you to post your schedule where you can easily see it and then follow it as close as possible today. As you follow it pay attention to things that work well and things that might need a little tweaking. Don't worry if you get a late start and don't worry if you don't follow it perfectly, just do the best you can today. Make sure you plan tonight to get up at your scheduled time tomorrow so you don't start off the day behind :)

I hope you have a blessed day!
