March 13, 2015Sharing the Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands
Posted by Staff at 10:57 AM
Dear Dr. Laura:
My husband and I host a weekly Bible study at our home for young married couples. First, we have a social hour where we share a meal and talk about our week, and then my husband teaches the adults a lesson from the Bible while I entertain the children. In the summer, we swim; in the winter, I have taught them simple sewing or baking, or we play games.
During our social time, often the wives will share their husbands' "perceived" shortcomings. I say perceived because what they share sounds like normal guy stuff to me. I had an opportunity last week to mention your book, The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, to them and their eyes really lit up when I mentioned the concept of being their husbands' girlfriends. These are all good kids with strong marriages, but I know how easily that can change when you aren't "feeding" your husband properly! I went to Amazon and bought copies of your book for each wife and plan to distribute them. I've attached a photo of how I inscribed them. While you book is secular, I am very comfortable sharing it with them as the principles are universal! Thank you for all you do to encourage strong and healthy marriages!
