  1. This is such a good word, Jennifer. It’s so easy to focus on our husbands’ weaknesses, and that gets us no where. You’ve encouraged me to pray for new eyes to see the good points in my dear husband!

  2. I just ordered your new book earlier this week. This past weekend God convicted me that I do not respect my husband as I should. I prayed and asked for help because as stupid as it sounds – I am not sure how to do it. (My mother was a terrible example – and most of the women in my family tend to be matriarchs and try to rule over their husbands.) The very morning after my nighttime prayer of confession and asking for help – I had an email in my inbox from Above Rubies advertising your book! I took that as a sign to buy it. 😉 (I knew about your book because I get your emails – but I conveniently forgot about it …) Thank you for all your blog posts!

    1. I’m so glad to hear all that, Lisa. I hope the book will be an encouragement to you and will give you some practical ideas for demonstrating respect in ways your husband will find meaningful. I love how God is so quick to show that He hears our prayers and cares about our struggles! Blessings on your marriage!

    2. Lisa, I understand how hard it is, not to know how to respect your husband. I also grew up in a family like yours and only have seen examples like you described above. I tried to understand what respecting means by looking it up on the internet, but it was hard. I can tell you, after I read Jennifer’s book (please read all of them! Love Your Husband, Love Yourself is seriously the best book I ever read besides the Bible! That is a life-changer), I learned how to respect my husband! It changed our relationship so much. I now know I am treating my man how God wants me to treat him! It might take a while before you get used to doing those things which apply to your situation, but it is so worth it! I want to encourage you to fight for it, and you will be paid back so much…

      1. Thank you for your encouragement CLJ! I am almost done reading Jennifer’s book now and am excited how it is just packed with so much practical advice. I am going to go back and focus on applying one thing/chapter per week as soon as I am done. (Great idea Jennifer on that.) I am so grateful for this book already!
