Day 6- 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge



"Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31b)
Do you recognize and appreciate your husband's creativity? Or do you criticize and demean his efforts? Instead of negativity, determine to be positive. Perhaps you can help your husband see that his efforts are an opportunity to glorify God.
Is your husband the "creative" type? Does he have any artistic gifts? What is that special "knack" he has? Affirm him for his handiwork--a hobby, music, gardening, tinkering with cars, working with wood, etc. Remember: Even if he doesn't measure up to your standards, praise his efforts. If your budget allows, buy him a book or magazine that will continue to encourage his special skill or talent.
If you have a hard time finding his "creative side," understand that men's creativity sometimes is related to their work. Find something he does to make his job run more smoothly or something he does that adds value to his work, and let him know that you have noticed.
Make his day--Praise his accomplishments in public, while he is listening.:Eddie has many talents that God blessed him with. He definitely has a green thumb, he can grow beautiful flowers. He is great at woodworking, and various home projects. I love my wonderfully talented husband.

Thanks for stopping by once again Denise!! You are so sweet to send me cards every day!! How sweet is that??? WE had such a great time at our family reunion that it was hard to put it all into real words(if you know what I mean).
I love your idea about affirming your hubby!! I have always tried to do that in my marriage. Men love it of course.
