Encouraging Your Husband – Part 6 Verbalize

EncouragingApparently we’re all supposed to be singing silly songs to prop up our menfolks.

This is a series looking at the marriage advice given in Nancy Campbell’s book ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’.

While packing for a move I have turned up are books, terrible idiotic books filled with toxic advice. One of those books is by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’. I think I ended up with this book in the aftermath of leaving my old church, given to me by one of my former friends that thought it would ‘help’ my marriage since in her eyes my husband leaving our old church meant that I wasn’t doing my job of wife well enough. Reading through this book now I cannot help but laugh at some of the suggestions. The book is entirely written by commenters and comments from Nancy Campbell’s website.

Sing Him a Song

My husband, Jim, is in sales which has it’s ups and downs, much like a roller coaster. I started to sing to my husband when he closed a sale. “I’m proud of you! I’m proud of you! Oh yes, I’m so proud of you! Boop, Boop De Doo!” Much to my surprise, it really spurred him on. He tries his hardest to get as many sales each day as he can, so he can call and hear me sing his reward. I know this really showed him how much I appreciate him going out and working hard for our family.
