5 Easy Ways to Uplift Your Husband

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Most days in a real and honest marriage are not picture perfect. And the many times, I am not on my A game as a wife. Some days, though, deserve a special category. Let's put these days into a category labeled #wifefail. Recently, I experienced a real life #wifefail type of moment. It happens to the best of us, I guess, but this day in particular was truly one for the books.

Imagine a bed sheet fort and a flashlight to my face as I continue this nightmarish story.

On this dreadfully early morning (4:30 to be exact), I rushed around my home in preparation for a long day at work. I opened one of the coffee shops that morning, and Gabe opened a different one about an hour and a half after me. I throw on clean cleanish clothes, brush my teeth, and bolt out of the door. About an hour later, I receive a phone call from my dear husband asking me if I have his car keys. 

Insert the surprised eye emoji here.

After fumbling around in my purse, I find that I do indeed have both sets of car keys. My husband, being the patient and problem solving man he is, quickly assures me that all is well and that he has a bike to get him to work, a bike with two flat tires I might add. 

He peddled himself to work on two flat tires and kept his job another day. 

That being said, my husband deserves some much needed uplifting! I hope your husband doesn't have to deal with an airhead like myself, but the truth is, all of our husbands are faced  with their own trials. They need a cheerleader. They need a encouragement. That, my friend, is something you can do. Even if you are an airhead who unintentionally makes your husband's life much harder! So today, I created a list of 5 easy ways to uplift your husband.


Speak Words of Encouragement

Believe it or not, your husband seeks your approval. He wants to hear and know that you are on his side, and cheering for him. Take a little bit of time to let him know how special he is to you. Whether it be in a text message or a sticky note on the mirror; cheer him on today, and be his biggest fan.

Learn His Love Language

This one is so very important if you want to make your husband feel like he means the world to you. Invest time into learning what actions speak love to him. You may be putting all of your effort into keeping a clean house and a meal on the table to uplift your husband just to find out that he feels loved when you speak words of affirmation instead.

Pray for Him

Not only can you pray for your husband, but praying alongside your husband can also be a prime opportunity to uplift your man. Praise God for the wonderful man he blessed you with, and bring his worries to the feet of the Lord. 

Praise His Efforts

Did he take out the trash? Pick up take out? Make sure he knows just how thankful and appreciative you are for all of the little things he does. Not only will this lift his spirits, but thanks to a little positive reinforcement, he just might do those things again tomorrow! But seriously, nobody wants to feel unappreciated for the work that they do.

I will be the first to admit that I can let things like work, school, house work, my emotions (I could go on and go, really) get in the way of  uplifting my husband. Sometimes we just need a little encouragement!

What unique ways do you uplift your husband each day? Where do you struggle?
