    I'm Looking For Tips For

    My Mates Love Language is

    With the holidays coming up, the most valuable commodity will be time with your wife. She and you will both be busy with holiday preparations of all kinds. Do your preparation tasks together. Tag along when she goes Christmas shopping. Bake with her. Help her do all – or at least most – of the many items on her “to do” list. The temptation will be to split the Holiday “to do” list, because you think that will be more productive. But productivity is not what you should be going for. Time together is what you should be going for. That’s what you both will remember as sweet memories.

    Spend time enjoying your favorite entertainment together. Like to binge watch a certain TV show, or watch movies together? Or maybe old records…or new records…is your thing. Whatever it is, make a date to enjoy them together. Want to get extra points? Recreate a special entertainment from your dating days: the first movie you saw, the first dinner out. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but the memories of those special times are indeed SPECIAL!

    Here’s a really easy tip for you, guys. But it’s one that will score big points with your wife. Simply write the following on a card-sized piece of colored paper: Good for 30 minutes of conversation. Use whenever you like and as often as you like. Have the card laminated and present it to your wife. She will think you are the sweetest husband in the world.

    Turn your Marriage from Ho-Hum to Hoo-Ray!

    It’s a whole new year! It’s a great time to start a new habit! For the next 30 days, set your phone reminder to do something for your wife every day. It might be as simple as making a special point to tell her how much you appreciate what a wonderful mother she is, or what great meals she cooks. Or it might be a card you buy or make and slip under her pillow. Take TIME to study your wife and appreciate who she is. And tell her so every single day!

    For the next two weeks at least, ask your wife every day, "What burden is on your heart that we can pray for today?" Then take her hand and spend time right then and there to pray for that burden together. The time you spend with your wife in this significant way will build your love in a way that nothing else can. If you do this for two weeks and realize how good it is, you will hopefully keep on doing it and form a habit that will draw you two closer than you could ever believe. Try it for two weeks, guys!

    Give your wife the first 15! The first 15 minutes when you wake up in the morning. Set your alarm earlier if necessary and spend those minutes cuddling and welcoming the new day together. Check her schedule for the day with her and ask if you can do anything to help her that day. Ask her how you can be praying for her while you’re apart. And the first 15 minutes when you get home from work are hers…not the game, not the news…hers. Talk about her day and yours. Tell her you thought about her today and are glad to be back with her at the end of the day. Just a half-hour a day, guys. But it can mean the world to your wife!

    Is Anger Killing Your Romance?

    Sometimes you may think of time with your wife as not as important as time you spend on other work, watching sports, or even playing with the kids. But TIME is very important to your wife. She may even spell love T-I-M-E. So this month's tip for you guys is to treat time with your wife the way you would treat time with Joe Montana or the quarterback of your favorite team. Remind yourself that every moment you get to spend with the love of your life is precious. I know this is a little mushy, guys, but, believe me, your wife will notice the shift in your attitude and will like it.

    Some evening this month, turn the lights down low, put on some soft music, and dance with your wife. You may not be able to dance well, but you can still hold her in your arms and sway to the music. Tell your wife how much you love her and give her a long, slow kiss. If you feel adventuresome, dip her at the end of the song. (Caution -- don't drop her!) Believe me, you will make your wife feel very special!

    Locate your wife's high school or college yearbook, get it out and open it with her. Ask her to tell you all about the pictures she is in. Ask her about her favorite teachers, her friends, her classes and all the things about it that she liked...or didn't like. This can be an opportunity to explore a part of her life you've never explored before, so listen closely.
