Hearts at Home #8 – The Husband Project
I love projects! I enjoy the process of putting it all together and having a finished product. Some projects take a really long time while others are done quickly. As I looked through the list of workshops, the name “The Husband Project” really jumped out at me. The description had me hooked. I desire to make Jonathan more of priority and communicate to him that he is my top relationship. This workshop would be helpful in this desire. In addition, I love Kathi Lipp and was excited to hear her speak. The top three points that I gleaned from this workshop were: Fill up your husband, Flirt with your husband and Have fun with your husband.
Fill up your husband
Kathi began by sharing that our husbands need to be filled up. Men have unspoken inner needs. As their wife, it is our role to pour into them so they get the inner assurance. Our husbands need to know that they are taking good care of us by providing and protecting us. And as their wife, we are the only ones who can tell him that. Another way we can fill up our husband is to make sure he knows we see him. That we notice all the little things our husband does for us and our family.
Flirt with your husband
The second main point was that we need to flirt with our husband. I loved how candid Kathi was with this point. Men enjoy lingerie so make sure you are getting something new every once in a while. Kathi commented many women don’t want to bother with lingerie because it doesn’t get used a lot. Her response was “If the lingerie only lasts for 5 minutes that means it’s working! Shut up and suit up!” It’s so true though and I am thankful Kathi was so blunt about it.
Have fun with your husband
The last point that I gleaned from this workshop was the importance of having fun in your marriage. Kathi encouraged us always to get back to a place of fun. Have inside jokes with one another. Laugh together. Make sure your husband is the first person you run to when something exciting happens.
Kathi closed out the workshop reminding us that we have the power to determine how our husband walks through the world. We need to be his biggest cheerleader. This challenges me! Jonathan needs to walk through this world confident of my love and respect for him. Also filled up by the ways I pour into him. I desire to be in the habit of assuring him of how valuable he is and flirting more with Jonathan. And lastly, I want to do what I can to keep the fun in our marriage.
How about you?
Does your husband feel filled up by you? Does he know you appreciate him? How often do you flirt with your husband? Do you have fun with your husband? Are you his biggest cheerleader? I know I need to grow in these areas too. God loves our marriage relationship even more than we do, so I know He will be with us each step of the way. Joining you in the journey…
