The Power of Respect

While running some errands, I heard just a little bit of a great talk by Bob Lepine of FamilyLife Today. I'm definitely going to be listening to this whole series.

A couple of the bits I remember:
  • My husband cares about what I think--sometimes more than any other person's opinion.
  • Men will quit doing something that they can't succeed at and try something else that they can succeed at.
  • When I offer my perspective or opinion to my husband, I need to do it in a way that communicates humility and respect.
  • No matter how confident my husband appears, he is insecure and unsure about many things. I need to encourage him and build him up.
Such good stuff. I can't wait to listen to the whole series. You can find it here.
