Is it just me or are there some book titles that just speak to you? When I saw 100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs to Hear available for review from Revell, I had to sign up for it! I need help in this area!

Summary:

Simple, Loving Words to Encourage Him Every Day
Every one of us has tremendous power to either build others up or tear them down through the words we speak every day, and nowhere is this more evident than in our marriages. Are you being purposeful in how you use the power of your words to speak encouragement, strength, and love--breathing life into the heart of your husband? Or are careless words negatively impacting your marriage and the heart of the one you love most? 

Lisa Jacobson wants you to discover the powerful ways you can build up your husband in love with the words you choose to say every day--words every husband needs to hear. This book offers you 100 things to say to your husband that deeply encourage, affirm, and inspire him. Start speaking these words into his life and watch your husband--and your relationship--transform before your eyes.

My Review:

Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by books that "help" me be a better wife. I mean, to be quite honest, I need help in this area a LOT! But some of the books out there have too much for my brain to consume.

NOT this book! 100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs to Hear is a book that gives wives simple phrases that will speak to your husband in ways he needs. With each phrase author, Lisa Jacobson, gives an example of she applied it to her husband in a practical way. Most of those examples are a page or less. That means it's not heavy reading, but simple and easy to relate to.

I would say not every phrase of affirmation is applicable to each wife reading this book, but it can be modified to fit your husband and your relationship with him. I am a pretty independent person. I don't do well relying on others, especially others aka my husband. For example, affirmation 68 is "Thank you for comforting me when I'm sad." Well, let's just say I'm not great with allowing him to comfort me. He tries. Fred is so great about that, but I'm a rather stubborn person. Gives me something to work on!

On the other hand, there are so many words in this book that I should be saying to him! So much of what's in this book my husband does naturally, I just take it all for granted. He's very selfless and thoughtful, but it just doesn't occur to me to say much more than, "thanks." I definitely think he'd appreciate it so much more if I were more specific with the words I use. Affirmation 43 is a perfect example, "Your steadiness makes me feel secure." I mean, that's just who he is inherently. I just don't ever think to verbalize it.

Ladies, please get this book. A seriously small phrase can make the world of difference to my husband - to your husband. Also, keep this book handy when you're frustrated or are searching for something good to think about your husband. When you need help remembering those good things, you'll find at least something here and it will help you turn your heart and thoughts back to him. Trust me!
