QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull honestly and thoughtfully.

I know one thing to be true: if you wish your husband would “do more,” start giving him sincere thanks for what he does. Give him sincere admiration for who he is, and he will strive to become more of who you want him to be. Men especially respond to gratitude.
This Thanksgiving season is the perfect time to express gratitude to our husbands. It’s an easy thing for us to do, but it can make such a difference in the harmony of our home.
Things to remember to thank your husband for:
- Filling up the car with gas
- Not pointing out all your faults
- Working every day without complaining
- Yard work
- Taking care of the trash, the toilet, the oil in the car, and all the other yucky things
- Particular character traits (is he calm, strong, loyal, playful…)
