Showing respect in marriage is one of the most important things a spouse can do. If I didn’t know that before, I certainly do now.
That’s because the blog traffic at my sister site, Loving Life at Home, has skyrocketed this week. I went from getting 40-50 hits a day to getting 40-50 THOUSAND daily visit. All due to a little post I published a few days ago entitled 25 Ways to Communicate Respect.
The original post is full of practical advice on nurturing your marriage by treating your husband well. Things like:
- Choose Joy
- Honor His Wishes
- Give Him Your Undivided Attention
- Don’t Interrupt
- Emphasize His Good Points
- Pray for Him
- Don’t Nag
- Be Thankful
- Smile at Him
- The A-to-Z Guide to Building a Better Marriage
- How Does Your Husband Spell Respect?
- The #1 Rule for Building a Happy Marriage
- It’s Time to Turn Your Thinking Around
Each point is followed by a brief explanation and scriptural support in the form of linked Bible verses. To read the whole list, follow this link: 25 Ways to Communicate Respect.
Well, all that advice on showing respect in marriage evidently struck a chord! [Update: 25 Ways to Communicate Respect has now been shared more than 1.2 MILLION times, pinned, parodied, re-posted, and even published in other languages! And I eventually turned it into a full-length book by the same title.]
In the meantime, I’ve compiled a list of related posts for wives who are interested in reading more on this topic:
Blessings on your marriage! Enjoy!
