10 Helps for Loving Your Husband Well

Life can get crazy can’t it? Doesn’t matter our season or our circumstance: newly married, young mom, mom of teens, employed full-time outside the home, or empty-nester; we all have things pulling at us constantly.

And this is our struggle.

We WANT to love our husband well. We INTEND to love our husbands well. BUT… when we stop and look around, we realize that we’ve allowed all those OTHER THINGS to use up our time and drain our energy. We’ve drifted from that place of INTENTIONAL love.

Valentine’s Day seems an appropriate time to BEGIN AGAIN.

Below are 10 resources to get us started. Keeping in mind our struggle with schedules, obligations, and calendars, the selection includes “easy-to-implement,” “doable” ideas. (Seriously, we don’t have time to dig through tons of material to make this happen!)
