Quietly Supportive = Very Helpful!

We all know the Word says that wives are to be a helper to their husbands. But what does that look like in action? We can serve our husbands by doing chores around the house, helping him promote his business, cooking great meals. But sometimes it's the things that we don't do that can help him in ways we never imagined. 

Think about the last time you and your family were in a tough spot; whether it was financial, problems with the in-laws, a conflict with your husband's job- whatever. Examine your attitude. Were you quietly confident in your husband to work it out in his own way; or did you get irritated and insist that he take your suggestion? 

I know I've been there! But guess what? There is so much more peace when I just zip my lips and let him work it out- whatever "it" may be. He, as a man, appreciates it so much more when I just flow with him and trust his ability. It's an easy way to show respect and submission (yes, that!) that speaks volumes of your love for your husband.
