Encouraging Your Husband – Bring on the Gravy – Part 1

We’ve come to the chapter on cooking for your husband and the first three pages are Nancy sharing all the things she repeats on her website: Cooking from scratch, make sure you have a meal on the table for him immediately after work, setting a gorgeous table, making everyone eat together, and so on. You get the idea. Skipping Nancy’s part

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.

Supper’s Ready

I have found that it means more to my husband than anything else I can do for him to come home to the aroma of a delicious dinner cooking—-and also to find all of his work clothes ironed. These things show him that he is cared for and that I think of him during the day. This support encourages and uplifts him as he deals with all the stresses of the day.
