Question #1.  How important is verbally complimenting my wife?

Answer #1  One important way to connect emotionally is to verbally complement your wife.  Proverbs offers this pointer:  “Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones”  (Psa.16:24).  How often do you praise your wife for what she does?  Consider a few of these compliments to brighten her day:

*  “Dinner was great!  Thank you for always making creative meals, even when you’re tired of cooking.”

*  “I love the way you read books to our kids.  That’s so much better for them than watching TV.”

*   “I’m grateful that you carefully budget our paycheck each month.”

* “I admire the way you handled yourself with that rude salesman–you have such a winsome approach.”

As you study your wife and learn how and when to build security, acceptance, and emotional connection into your relationship through well-chosen, affirming words, you will become an irresistible man.  And let me make one last practical suggestion:  When you come home from work, here are four of the most romantic words ever to say to your wife: “How can I help?”

Why not try it—and mean it–tonight?
