The Generous Wife

TJ & I (haha)

A worderful friend lead me to a site, titled "The Generous Wife", about how to be a wonderful wife and what to do to "spice" things up, and just how to treat your husband! So here goes some tips! And wives...."Be Generous Wives"

  • I Want to Hold Your Hand : So as a tip idea ... the part about respecting your spouse and treating them and their needs with kindness and understanding. A need is a need is a need. Judging the value of your spouse's need is judging your spouse in a way. How kind it is to value them by valuing their needs (however silly the need may seem to you at the moment).

  • Bedroom Check : Time for another bedroom check. How romantic and lovely is your bedroom? Are there piles of laundry laying around? Not very romantic. Fold them and put them away. Piles of papers? Sort and file them. Straighten up, put on fresh sheets and set out a candle or two. Make your bedroom that special room for just the two of you, where you can talk and share and love.
    ... our bed is verdant. The beams of our house are cedar; our rafters are firs. Son of Songs 1:16-17 NIV

  • Answer Softly : When your husband is having a bad day or is just generally being testy, be sure to speak kindly and softly to him. It will make it easier for him to get back on track and it will let him know that you understand he's struggling and that you love him.
    A soft answer turns away wrath ... Proverbs 15:1a NKJV
