Saturday, Dirk and I had the opportunity to share during three breakout sessions during a marriage seminar. This is the hand-out Dirk compiled for the men. Have any more thoughts or suggestions to add? Wives, your input is encouraged too!
For the Men
LOVE your wife…with actions and words. Ex: open her car door, praying, reading your Bible, tithe, help put the children to bed.
Be the head…not the tail! (or the butt) Spiritually lead her!
Tell her she’s beautiful.
Listen better….turn off the TV or gaming system.
Write love notes
Bring small gifts…it really is the thought that counts!
Give her longer kisses…not just the peck on your way out the door.
Leave work at work.
Continue to pursue her…even though you’ve already caught her.
Hold her hand.
E-mail and text her
Take her on surprise dates
Take care of the cars
Finish those home repair projects (or hire someone to finish them)
Read your Bible and pray out loud for your family
Give her lots of cuddle time
Be her best friend
Tell her you love her often….and tell her why.
Share your dreams with her: Family Vision
