-Share something (2-3 times weekly) that God is teaching you with your wife and have your wife share what God is teaching her.
-Pray with JUST your wife 2-3 times a week. Ask her what she needs prayer for and pray specifically.
-Do something special for your wife once a week.
-ENCOURAGE, ENCOURAGE, ENCOURAGE!!!
Men, sit down with your wife this week and ask this question:
“What are your greatest needs and how can I better meet your needs?”
-take notes and work at meeting her needs
