Ways to Show Love to Your Husband

So Valentine's Day is in 11 days - and some of you have been married for many many moons and frankly - the romance is gone in your marriage. As I stroll through the stores, I see loads of cute little Valentine's Day decorations, foods and gifts. I find myself picking up little things for the children - some heart socks here, a few heart candies there, and some little gifts for a Valentine scavenger hunt I have planned for the children.


But what in the world will I get my husband? Does he care? Will I get something for him and he won't reciprocate - and then in my selfishness will I be miffed because he didn't get something for me? I think I found the answer!

I want to share with you a gift you can give your husband and it is found on http://www.reviveourhearts.com/ This website has different 30 day challenges and the "30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge for Wives" would definitely be one of the best Valentine's Day gifts you could give your man!!!!


The challenge starts out by instructing you to not say anything negative about your husband, to your husband or anyone else for the next 30 days. Then she instructs you to tell your husband one thing each day that you appreciate about him - and she gives you ideas of what to say. For example: tell your husband "thank you" for choosing you above all other women! I told Keith this and then planted a big kiss on him and he beamed! He was pleasantly surprised by my appreciation!


Another resource is the Women Living Well homepage. I am posting different practical ideas of things you can do each day for your man to show your love and appreciation to him. For example - sneak out in the morning and write a chalk message on the driveway to your husband declaring your love! Leave a note tied to his rear view mirror or taped to his steering wheel. Mail him a letter to receive at his workplace. When he travels fill his bags with love letters hidden through out - this is one of our favorites - the kids love to help make love notes and stuff them in his socks and shoes!

There's so much you can do! Be creative and use this cold month of February to heat things up in your marriage! And remember - do not be selfish - expect nothing in return. "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others." (Philippians 2:3,4)


Walk with the King!

I started the 30 day encouragement for hubby's 18 days ago and it's been wonderful!

Wow Courtney, thanks for writing this. You have no idea how much I needed this today! I love Ron with my whole heart but have had a hard time showing it the last couple of months. I am starting the 30 days of encouragement today! I also love the ideas you mentioned in your blog. I get tired of just putting notes in the lunch box or writing with lipstick on the bathroom mirror! :)

I'm planning on starting the Love Dare book today or tommorow- sounds similar to the 30 day encouragement!

Oh, and have you heard of the Generous Wife website? The lady on there e-mails out tips every day. Here's the link: http://www.the-generous-wife.com/
