It doesn't say anything new but is a great reminder of those things we know. I really enjoy the stories and excerpts from other books. There were some things that stood out to me and I didn't have a highlighter so yup crayon it was. True mark of a mommy right haha. I love what this says.... so very true.
"I need to make helping my husband a top priority before I help anyone else."
"I do have the burden of being both parents to our children and running a household but I still enjoy being home. My husband, however, has the burden of his work, plus the discomfort of being away from home and family." [Very true, especially in a deployment].
"A marriage is not a joining of two worlds, but an abandoning of two worlds in order that one new one might be formed."
"A husband needs a wife who is forgiving not bitter."
"As a helper, one of my jobs is to help my husband in the role God created for him, one of leadership, protection, and provision for his family."
"Whatever a man chooses to do in his life he'll be successful. Not because of how much money he makes or how many degrees he may acquire but because he has a woman who believes in him."
"A husband needs a wife who is content, not complaining."
"A wife's positive attitude can permeate her home like the sweet aroma of freshly picked flowers, or her negative attitude can pollute her home like stinky garbage."
"Teach your children to drop everything when daddy comes home so they can big him a big hug."
"God made us to be emotional, but not to be ruled by our emotions." [Tough one for me].
"Take a time our for yourself before shouting ugly words." [Yes, I have a time out corner].
"Our husbands are all grown up, but they still long for cheerleaders, not critics."
"Titus 2:4-5: "Encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands so that the word of God will not be dishonored." Notice that loving our husbands comes first in this list of commands, thus showing its importance."
A good book so far and something I can relate to for sure. Definitely one worth checking out.
