We are now almost two weeks into the new year and I know by now you have your list of dreams and goals all written out. Did you remember to include some for your marriage? We make it a goal each year to have a love fund which we use to celebrate our anniversary. But I’m not talking about those work-together kinds of goals. I’m talking about personal goals.
What will YOU do to strengthen your marriage this year?
- Will you pray for your husband every day?
- Will you be trustworthy and resolve to trust him?
- Will you speak his love language every day?
- Will you regularly show him honor?
Will you encourage your husband to be a leader in your home?
Some men are natural leaders. Others struggle with it a bit, but ALL of them need encouragement in their leadership positions. Here are 6 ways to encourage your husband’s leadership:
1. Ask him about his goals
Ask him what his personal goals and goals for the family are for this year. If you don’t have a habit of talking about goals together and/or if he’s anything like my husband, he will need some time to think about this and get back with you. Don’t hound him. Be patient. And when he speaks – listen!
2. Voice your support
Whatever his goals are, voice your support. Your verbal and body language need to be telling him that you are his biggest fan. That you believe in him and that you believe in his goals.
