A Secret Your Husband Needs You To Know (But Won’t Tell You)

Ladies, here’s a secret your husband probably won’t share…

He needs your moral support…in fact…he needs you to be his biggest fan…

Your support feeds his God-given ego…(Sure that can be abused…)

But a man is to take pride in his home, his family, his work…

Doing well for the woman he loves is perhaps one of the greatest goals in a man’s life…

The truth is sometimes he feels as if he doesn’t measure up…

He sees you doing so well with all your responsibilities around the house…

One time after preaching…Cheryl said nothing…

Usually she says “Great job today”…or…”That was a good one”

That day…nothing…

3 days later…I asked, “Was I that bad?”…

I needed her positive feedback and encouragement….

Your husband does too…

Here’s the best part of the secret….

If your husband feels respected in his home…he will do anything to keep it…

Maybe even start doing the dishes….brag on him when he does that too…

Maybe next will be the dusting…nah…don’t push it!

PS.  Don’t tell him I told you!

  1. Outstanding observation. Many a today's women would never accept this premise and that is a sad reality. What is the male equivalent advice?

    • Peter, when I read your first sentence I thought you were advertising. Glad you added the 2nd sentence. I’d say slip it gently somewhere we she will find it :)

  2. Great Message and sooo needed… we ALL need encouragement… and none more that the person who is the Spiritual head of the housewhole… thanks for reminding us ‘girls’ that our ‘Atta boys’ make a difference in our Man’s life!!

  3. Well said. Great post. The fact is, as men, we tend to shy away from the things and areas where we feel least successful. Know a man that doesn’t like coming home after work? Try making him feel successful when he is there. I’m a great coach when I know my wife is my biggest cheerleader.

  4. Great advice.
    We recently had the Love and Respect conference at our church.
    I know first hand how deadly the crazy cycle is. Lived itfor years and it almost cost our marriage.
    Best advice….men love you wife and wives respect your husband. Then watch life return to your marriage.

  5. That's so true. My wife and I have had issues for years that have now caused a severe rift between us. I'm not saying that if she had been this way things would have been totally different as most of the problems were caused by me not being under His direction. But any time I'd even mention it, her response would be something like "Why do you feel you need to be stroked in order to do what's right?" I wasn't looking for accolades or "strokes", just some level of respect and support.

    • Your response helped put this article into better perspective for me. Women do what's right without needing to be "stroked" so that's why it feels that way to us about men. Must be something I need to pray on and work on.
