The Husband Challenge Day 18
You will show me the path of life. In your presence is fullness of joy . . . Happy are the
people whose God is the LORD!
(Ps. 16:11a; 144:15b)

If your husband can sometimes be overly serious, coax him out occasionally for some
play times. It will help him relieve stress and relax.
