A Jesus-trusting, Bible-reading, Dr. Pepper-drinking, holey-t-shirt-wearing, meat-and-potatoes-loving, video-game-playing, hard-working MAN.
And I love that.
Every man is unique.
Do you encourage your man in his own particular brand of manliness?
Do you admire the muscles he's built up from a physically demanding job?
Do you listen to the crazy stories he has from his job as a lawyer/med student/photographer/whatever?
Do you thank him for working to support you, in whatever work he does?
Do you thank him when he helps you with your work, be it with your children or around the house?
Does your man know you appreciate him for just the man he is?
And are you the kind of wife who motivates her man to BE a man?
I pray that I'm that kind of wife. I work at these things, but I don't get them right all the time, or even most of the time.
But I am working at being the kind of wife who appreciates her man for the man he is, loves him the way he is, and encourages him to keep becoming the man God's created him to be.
After all, I'm a work in progress too!
What kind of man do you have? What's one way you can encourage him in his manliness? Share in the comments!
