Encouraging Your Husband: Bring on the Gravy Part 2

IMG_1401Today’s post sounds almost like something Lori Alexander of ‘The Transformed Wife’ might right. Remember her upset with Ken’s choosing to eat potato chips and ice cream instead of the salads she was making?

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.

His Favorites!

My husband really enjoys certain foods, foods that often I don’t think are nutritional, or that are boring to me. We have argued over food for 15 years! However, over the past year or two, I have felt be deserved more than I was giving him in the way of food.  I began to think of what he would like for dinner, rather than what I think he should have. I now ask him what he would like before I make out the menu for the next week. I ask him what snacks he would like (he ha hypoglycemia and needs to eat a snack before heading off to his graveyard shift where his job is physically hard on his body) I now prepare a breakfast he enjoys when he comes home from work in the morning.

I try to have foods that are special ‘daddy’ foods on hand. I make the children respect him by not eating them all up before he gets to them. I teach them that their daddy works hard for us and that we need to have special treats just for him.
