the woman your man needs

What does your man need? 

I know what mine needs.
He needs a peaceful home,
clean underwear,
satisfying meals,
physical attention,
playtime (with me and without me),
a tidy house,
and most of all...
a godly wife!

For the next couple of months I'm joining the "Completing Him Challenge" over at Women Living Well. The challenge is to take inventory of your relationship with your husband and allow the Lord to reveal and refresh areas that have taken a backseat to kids, work, hobbies...and, well, LIFE!

I want to be all that the Lord has made me to be for Marko. And by God's strength, I can be the woman he needs me to be. Want to join me?

Here's the Topic Schedule for those who want to link up each week:

June 7 - announce to your readers you are participating by posting the button on your site and leaving your link below. 

June 14 – Post Pictures from your dating days (or tell us all about it!). Think about one thing you used to do or have as a couple that you have lost in the shuffle of life. How can you regain it?

June 21 - Remember Your Vows - post pictures of your wedding day. We will review the sacredness of this day.

June 28 - Ask your husband every morning how you can pray for him that day. Bonus: Fast and pray for him one day this week.

July 5 - Admire Your Husband. Write this post and then show it to him! He will smile!

July 12 - Make a list of 5 things you currently do and ask him to prioritize them for you of what is important to him. For example - a clean home, home cooked dinner, coupon clipping, service at church, having friends over for dinner, watching/doing sports with him, etc.

July 19 - Make him a priority. Ask him what his favorite dinner, dessert and drink are. Be sure to serve him all three one night this week. Bonus: cook his favorite dishes all week long!

July 26 - Support his vision. Discuss his vision for your family. Where does he see your family in 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years. Share with us how you let your husband lead.

August 2 - R-E-S-P-E-C-T! No complaining, criticizing, rolling your eyes, nagging, or giving him any friction this week. Enjoy a week of peace in your home!

August 9 - Kiss Him Like You Mean It (and be sure the door is locked!)

“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!”
Proverbs 31:29


  1. Love, love, love this link-up. What a blessing for our husbands. I'm wondering if I could join in late...

    I love your list. I totally agree about the clean underwear. My husband loves it when his drawer is full. :)

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. If you were nearby--I'd have you have first dibs at the big sale.



  2. By the way...I have a Sam as well. I love that name. It is so endearing.
