Day 9 – Serve Her

Brad Says…

Most wives work double or triple duty. They do so much to take care of our home, our family, and us! All those little things that many guys couldn’t live without.

How often do you turn the tables and really serve her? I’m not talking about just getting the honey do list done, I’m talking about really taking care of her?

Today I want to challenge you to think about ways that you can take care of your hard-working wife. Here are a list of just some ideas. You need to know what your wife would really like.

Ways to Serve Her:10-Day-Challenge-day-9

  • Draw her a nice bubble bath
  • Let her pick her favorite TV show or movie
  • Give her an hour to herself just to snuggle with a good book
  • Give her a foot or back massage
  • Give her the gift of a “no electronics” day
  • Go buy her a nice small gift to say thank you
  • Write her a love note

Pick at least one and make sure you let her know how much you love and appreciate her!

Prayer Point

As the challenge is coming to a close pray that God will use these last 2 days to teach you more about being intimate with your spouse. Emotionally intimate, spiritually intimate and physically intimate.

Washing in the Word

Excerpts from Song of Solomon 7 (NLT)

Wife (to Husband) I am my lover’s,
and he claims me as his own.
Come, my love, let us go out to the fields
and spend the night among the wildflowers.
Let us get up early and go to the vineyards
to see if the grapevines have budded,
if the blossoms have opened,
and if the pomegranates have bloomed.
There I will give you my love.
There the mandrakes give off their fragrance,
and the finest fruits are at our door,
new delights as well as old,
which I have saved for you, my lover.

  1. This goes -double- if her primary love language is “acts of service”. I am my beloved’s love slave and constantly look for more “acts of service” that I can perform for her.

  2. My husband has this nailed! Flowers, chocolate, big breakfasts,cooking dinner, Mr. Fix-it…I could go on and on…

  3. I served her this morning with a back rub, which she loves. Let’s just say that Day 9 got of to a “rousing” start. We have loved our time together in the bedroom. We’ve used this time to experiment with a lot of new positions. It’s been adventuresome, even if they weren’t successful. Thanks Brad and Kate

  4. My hubby helped with the dinner and helped with the dishes which he does most of the time. He also helped with the laundry and other things around the house.

  5. My husband has been taking care of me all weekend as I had my wisdom teeth out Friday. He has done a wonderful job (Frostys, cooked eggs, etc.:).

  6. The issue is that a husband who truly serve his wife, he will receive in return a wife who will submit totally to him. But you can’t truly serve your wife unless you love her and is deeply committed to your marriage.

    As a man, you will enjoy your wife to the fullest if she is submissive to you and serving her will bring about the submissiveness.
