After I preach, no matter how many people offer encouraging feedback, the one person whose feedback I’m most interested in is Ginger’s. After all, my wife knows me best and she’ll be honest with me. Her words are most important to me.
Whether your husband admits it or not, your words impact him more than anyone.
Last week I spoke to a gathering of 75 men and asked them, “What’s the one thing you want to hear your wife say to you?” Below are their responses.
5 Things Your Husband Wants to Hear You Say
#1 “I respect you and trust your leadership.”
#2 “I love you no matter what.”
#3 “I appreciate you. Thanks for all you do.”
#4 “Take the day off & go surfing” (or whatever his hobby is).
#5 “Let’s have sex tonight.”
(Last week I also spoke to a gathering of 75 ladies last week and asked them to tell me the one thing they wished their husbands would say to them. I shared their responses yesterday, which you can read HERE.)
Everyone’s love language may not be words of encouragement but everyone benefits from positive reinforcement.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Prov. 18:21
Let’s speak words of life today!
