Words He Needs to Hear

As wives, we have incredible power in the lives of our husbands.  We honestly have the power to either build them up or tear them down.

As wives, we love to feel loved and be romanced.  But for our husbands, they love to feel respected and to know we believe in them. God created men with a need to have respect from their mate. What better way to show them respect than through affirmation!  Our men need to know that they are enough and exactly what we desire. We need to tell them how much we appreciate them!

Each time you give your husband a loving word of affirmation, you are valuing him. He will feel treasured, adored, loved and he will thrive. But something even more amazing happens – when you verbally appreciate your spouse with sincerity, his value goes up in your eyes, too. You see him the way you are describing him and he becomes more and more valuable to you. It is a win-win situation. With more words of affirmation, love grows. Um, hello smokin' hot marriage! When his woman is behind him, he will be able to take on the world.  Side-note:  I would bet when you shower him with praise, affirmation and kind words...you'll get the same in return!

And ladies, I encourage you to praise him in front of your kids. First of all, remember your kids are learning what marriage looks like by watching you. They sure do need to see that their Mama appreciates and respects their Dad. It means backing him up when he’s made a decision (even if I don’t agree), it means not making a decision without talking to him first and it means speaking good about him even when he isn't around. We need to teach our littles to appreciate how hard their Dads work to support and lead our households!

Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. 
Ephesians 5:33
