What I learned is that men receive love through respect. It’s their language. It’s what makes them feel valuable!
One of my favorite movies from last year was Courageous. While I enjoyed it as a woman, this movie spoke to men in this language of respect. It urged them to rise to the challenge of becoming a Courageous father and husband by serving their families well. Even months later scenes replay through my mind of the men in that movie setting their jaw and stepping forward to excel in the job God created for them. I was even blessed to interview Ken Bevel, one of the actors. You can listen to that interview here .
This Valentine’s Day I want to encourage us to speak love to our husbands in a way they’ll understand. I’ll even reward you for it!
I invite you to leave a comment about something you RESPECT about your husband. Then on February 14th, I’m going to choose nine of you to receive a FREE copy of the Courageous DVD!
Whether you’re one of the lucky winners or not, make sure you sit down with him and read your post! Your words of respect will hopefully go a long way!
(And a special thanks for our friends at Courageous for providing the DVDs!)
