Ten Ways A Wife May
Be A Crown To Her Husband:

Proverbs 12:4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband:
but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

  • Ask your husband, "What are your goals for the week and how can I help you to accomplish them? Is there anything I can do that would make it easier for you?"
  • Be organized as much as possible with cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, and cooking.  Try to anticipate his needs and your family's needs so that you can be prepared or have what is needed ready.
  • Save some of your energy for him every day.  Take a nap if necessary so that you will be refreshed for your time with him.  Greet him with a smile when he comes home.  Save problems for later. (But, don't forget them if they need to be discussed.)
  • Put him first over the children, your parents, friends, home business, ladies' Bible studies, social media, blogging, etc.  Willingly rearrange your schedule for him when necessary.
  • Talk about him in a positive light to others. Do not slander him at all. If you have an issue that you don't know how to deal with seek advice from a godly women who will give you good counsel, not from a woman who has a "that's-just-like-a-man" attitude.
  • Pray for him and make good suggestions about situations or projects. Give him the freedom not to use your suggestion, and do not be offended if he does not follow it.
  • Be kind and gracious to his family and friends as much as lieth in you, Rom. 12:18. Make your commitment to him obvious to them.
  • Dress in a neat and modest manner that is pleasing to your husband. Take care of yourself as a point of being a blessing to him.
  • When your husband sins, admonish him privately, always with humility, giving him hope and pointing him to the Lord. Prv. 25:9-10. Ask how you can help him overcome faults that seem to repeat themselves.
  • Realize that just as God is glorified when man obeys Him, God is glorified when you obey your husband in all that is fit in the Lord.

1 Corinthains 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch
as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
