A Help
Meet for His

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man
should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Be A Crown To Your Husband

How To Pray for Your Husband

Important note: If your husband has asked you to remind him of things that need doing, or if he asks you to start a project while he is at work so that he can finish it, that is an entirely different matter. Unfortunately, we can get the idea that we "should only have to mention something once" in order for it to get done, when the man may want to be reminded.

I have noticed that women are inclined to judge all men by their own husband and make blanket statements of advice. Do what your husband wants. If you don't know how he feels about it, ask him. Ask him honestly and request an honest answer.

Not By Nagging

You said you were looking for lessons God has taught us so I wanted to write and share a lesson I've learned...

If there's any repair work that needs to be done to your home (floors, painting, etc.) discussing it once with your husband should be all that's needed, and by that I mean, don't make yourself a nag! If you find yourself using every opportunity to bring up the subject of how bad your floors look or how much you'd like a new coat of paint on the walls, your jobs just might get done, but they will probably be done out of resentment from your husband. And the memories that you make with your family in that home might become tainted. That behavior is not something God would be [pleased with], nor would your husband.

If you find yourself starting to become impatient at all the repairs that need to be done (and I said "need", but that includes "want" too) around the house, go to our Lord in prayer and allow His peace to flow over you. I've seen many a time when God has dealt with my husband over these very issues and when He did I was sure glad I didn't try and handle it myself by becoming a nag...Don't follow the worldly woman's way of doing things, it always back fires.

Please also know manipulating your husband to do something for you is wrong. For example, starting a repair job in the home when he is at work, knowing when he comes home he has no choice but to finish it for you, [is] no way to get things done either. I say all this out of love and I hope it is a help to you.

Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
