Encouraging Your Husband: Listen But Don’t You Dare Speak!

EncouragingWe move into a new chapter today titled ‘A Listening Ear’ from Nancy Campbell’s book ‘How to Encourage Your Husband. Most of the advice, such that it is, from this Chapter 6, seems to be listen and do not offer advice unless specifically asked. Not exactly a sign of a healthy marriage relationship.
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.

Listen Without Advice

This is what I have learned to do to bless my husband.

  1. Listen to him without any comments or advice.

  2. Give him a five minute shoulder rub when he does not expect it.

  3. Smile at him—a lot!

  4. Ask him how his day was without including anything about my own day.

This guy does not need a wife. He need a cooking and massaging sex robot!
