Sometimes laughter, sometimes tears, sometimes a fervent prayer for forgiveness. Sometimes affirmation, sometimes kind remonstrances, sometimes silence. Relationships are forged within these behaviors and so much more.
Affirmation comes from considering, really thinking about, what your spouse needs and even wants to hear. Have you taken the time to think about those areas of everyday life that we so often take for granted? Perhaps it’s time to do so.
Such things as saying yes, being careful of the other’s feelings, pulling back when you really want to argue (and win), and letting them know you really like and care about them, make all the difference in any relationship. Although this book focuses on wives affirming and supporting their husbands there is much that applies to all good and growing relationships.
I found 100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs to Hear thought-provoking and inspiring. Lisa Jacobson‘s life experiences and words of wisdom are timely and much needed in this season of negativity and put-downs.
Much is written in this volume about affirmation and support. Which of course is what the title implies. I would love to see, from the same author(s) what they, as individuals, want to be affirmed, supported, and thanked for. Would there be a difference?
Blessings to you and yours!
