Fawn Weaver is a businesswoman and author of The Argument-Free Marriage and Happy Wives Club. She provides profound insights on beating the temptations of arguing with your spouse among other bits of wisdom on marriage. She warns about the law of acceleration and the consequences of regret if we lose the ones we negatively interacted with, because tomorrow is never promised.
A couple of years ago she conducted a classic TedTalk which reminded me of certain scriptures like Ephesians 4:26-27:
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
There are some who are skeptical of her advice deeming it too unrealistic, especially when you bring children into the picture. Yes, I do agree there are further challenges once children come into play, yet I believe her same concepts should all the more apply because these are some of the same principles we see in the scriptures. Her concepts would be a wise application for every relationship. The Lord doesn’t ask us to do anything He hasn’t equipped us to be able to do. Also, it’s a peaceful feeling to know that even when we do fall short or weak of the things we strive for within our character, we see the loving grace of God that lifts us back to His loving standard to continue forth.
One of my favorite parts of her TedTalk is when she describes staying in the original emotion. Doing so can enable you to be true to your vulnerability instead of jumping into pride and sin which then gives Satan that foothold.
Are you an easily angered or argumentative person? Don’t let it lead to regrets. Check her Talk below:
