HOMEWORK

Identify your personal "negative self-talk," or whispers from the adversary, the thoughts that plague you, that are not the words Christ would say to you, then share those with your spouse. As you identify and voice those you'll be able to fight back when those thoughts arise again. Also, can you notice any similarities?
