The challenge: You can't say anything negative about your husband ...to your husband...or to anyone else, about your husband. Also, you must say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband...to your husband...and to someone else, about your husband. (Yes! Every day!)
Proverbs 23:4-5 Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle. Proverbs 8:20-21 I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their treasuries full.
Money can be a major source of many arguments in a marriage. Find ways to encourage and help your husband in this area. Ask first if he is open to your help in areas such as organization, stewardship, budgeting, making wise decisions about investing and purchases based on Biblical principles. Make sure that you are following your husband's lead and direction to make decisions that would honor him and God.

Soon, we will add some daily practical things that were taught in a home economics textbook from the 1950's that taught girls how to prepare for married life. Seriously, not sarcastically.
