What does a woman need in order to feel loved?
What motivates her, makes her tick?
What can a husband do to get his own needs met?
Many men struggle with how to love their wives (girlfriend, fiancé). Maybe you're trying as hard as you can to please her, but you have little to no idea what makes her feel fulfilled in the relationship. This information is not intuitive; it has to be taught, and you can start here with this course.
Based on the book Becoming a Godly Husband, this course teaches seven keys to understanding your wife. You’ll learn how to keep her secure in the relationship, create a sense of teamwork, and nurture her needs. I think you’ll find that if you practice the principles taught here, your marriage will go to a whole new level. Plus, she will begin to want to learn how to please you too. Change is possible, but you have to learn what to do. A godly marriage is one where both couples are fulfilled and experiencing intimacy, and this course provides practical advice, godly wisdom, and good words for married couples.
Learn these seven marriage-changing principles:
H-Honor: A woman must receive a sense of honor to stay emotionally connected in a relationship. Giving your wife honor is one of the primary ways to change your marriage.
U-Understanding: Learning your wife's unique temperament, gifts, and abilities is essential so you can help her become the woman God calls her to be. God tells husbands to do something that culture tells us is impossible—understand how God made your wife for His glory.
S-Security: Women need to feel secure in the relationship in ways you have most likely never thought about. Learn four ways that are most likely to threaten your marriage (more than just cheating in marriage) and how to build her sense of security.
B-Building Unity and Direction: Husbands have been tasked to build unity in the marriage. Don't allow the pressures of life come between you and your spouse. Your wife needs you to engage and lead in very specific ways. Learn the four aspects of leadership you must supply as her husband.
A-Agreement: Establish an agreement system so both husband and wife can enthusiastically support the decisions that need to be made. What do you do when you don't agree on something? Learn this principle to avoid fights, work through conflict, and bring agreement in situations.
N-Nurture: Your wife can blossom if you truly nurture her. Learn what makes her blossom as a person, wife, mother, worker, and friend.
D-Defender: God has asked you to protect your wife from certain things that can harm or destroy her. Learn the four common areas where your protection will make the greatest difference. Don't leave your marriage and family unprotected.
