Wife on Fire Challenge {Week 3}: Halfway There!

Wife on Fire Challenge Week 3 Feature Image

Woot! Woot! If you started with the Wife on Fire Challenge two weeks ago, you have officially made it to the halfway point!

If you are just reading this post and you’re new to Country Wife Chronicles or you have just missed a few weeks of updates, please check out the first two posts of this series here:

In Week 1, I took some time to explain this idea that I hatched about bonding together to be better wives and encouraging one another in the process. It’s all about choosing intentional marriage and making the effort.

And consistency. I suppose that’s where the whole idea of a challenge came in. You see…I am intentional at just about anything and everything in this life. But I do sometimes lack in consistency.

So, while I do value intentional marriage and believe it is important to make a daily effort toward having a Marriage on Fire, I’m not always so good at practicing what I preach.

Enter the Wife on Fire Challenge.

Accountability. Encouragement. Consistency.

In Week 2, I went on to describe what it means to be a Wife on Fire. And to sum it up, it is simply being a Wife on Fire for your marriage. A wife that is willing to make the effort, keep the flame alive, and not walk away from building up and encouraging her husband.

Now that you are all caught up to speed on the Wife on Fire Challenge, let’s review where we are at here at this halfway point.

For the past two weeks now I’ve ended my blog posts with a Wife on Fire Challenge: an intentional action or effort to make throughout the week towards your husband, for your marriage.

Week 1 was:

Week 2 was:

So, let me just say, “Job well done. Keep up the good work;” if you’ve been able to be on task for the past two weeks and have truly made the effort for a Marriage on Fire.

For those of you that have been reading along, but are not participating for whatever reason, here’s your chance to jump in at the halfway point and give the Wife on Fire Challenge a chance, even if only for the last two weeks.  

And, now, for this week’s Wife on Fire Challenge…

Wife on Fire Challenge Action Week 3

I hope you can say that you and your marriage are benefiting from the Wife on Fire Challenge. Maybe it is inspiring you to make more of an effort in your relationships. Or it’s opened your eyes to making intentional marriage a priority in your life.

Next week, here at Country Wife Chronicles, we’ll be closing out this 4-week Wife on Fire Challenge with the final challenge announcement, plus, a couple surprises are in store for those of you that have been participating!

In the meantime, keep on keeping on. Stay encouraged, don’t give up.

And remain a Wife on Fire.

  1. The very first week, my husband noticed the difference of me being kinder; I know, shame on me! The second week was still going well and we did share a 2 day getaway with nice meals and time alone. The third week, life got in the way and things weren’t as smooth. However, I did make a cake that he really likes! He was edgy, not talking much and then he saw the cake on the counter. He asked, “Where are you going?” I said no where and then he asked who the cake was for. I told him it was for him and it was my challenge this week. He said “I really like her!” He really ate a lot of the cake!
    Soooo, I have learned, so far, that even though I feel sometimes that its all him, its a lot me! I need to communicate better, keep giving, and taking care of “us”!

    1. This comment is so special to me, Laura. And I’m so happy this little tiny challenge has opened up your heart to making more of an effort in your marriage. I am in no way saying that marriage should be a one-way street, it definitely takes two to make the effort and speak each other’s love languages. But I am saying that reigniting that spark can start with just one person, just one effort. Your comment absolutely exemplifies that. I LOVE that you tried the Wife on Fire Challenge. And I love that you saw it make a difference in your relationship. I’m always here if you need encouragement or more tips for making the effort on a more consistent basis! Much love to you!

  2. This has been so great! We’ve been so busy lately but this has been my reminder to be present for/with my husband. Thanks country wife!

    1. Busy schedules are tough. And intentionality in marriage takes time and effort. Props to you for taking a moment to be a Wife on Fire! Be Still & Know…
