Treat Him Like A King

10 Day Challenge: Day 8

Brad says…

Ladies, every day you go above and beyond for your husband and family. I know that you give your all to take care of everyone else. This is why today’s challenge is going to be difficult. Today I want you to go out of your way to make your husband feel special!b-treat him like a king

Here are some ideas

  • Make him a special breakfast or dinner, and tell him you made it just for him!
  • Do something for him he normally does for himself:
    • Make coffee,
    • Pack his lunch,
    • Start his car…
  • Share on Facebook something about him that you appreciate
  • When he gets home tell him to go take a few minutes of quite time for himself
  • Find a way to tell him “you were right” today.
    • For example, “you were right, this 10 Day Challenge has been awesome I am so glad you suggested it.” 🙂
  • Tell him you appreciate how hard he works for you and the family.
  • Wear his favorite outfit and tell him, “I was thinking of you when I put this on”

It’s All About Respect

As you are adding to your busy day by making your husband feel special you are showing him respect. Respect is all about building him up.

Respect is showing you trust his decisions.

Respect is saying he did something well.

Respect is desiring his opinion.

Respect is also doing things for him.

As you are giving him a boost of respect I promise not only will that make him feel awesome; it will also fill him in a way that love will come pouring out!

What ways did you find to do something special for your guy today? Share some ideas in the comments!

Washing in the Word:

To give you the opportunity to grow in all areas of intimacy during the 10 Day Challenge, take time to read these “Washing in the Word” moments together.

Ephesians 2:4-10

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (NLT)

  1. This is a hard one for some guys to accept too. I have a tendency to feel guilty and undeserving when my wife does stuff for me out of the blue. Not that I don’t dig it… I just struggle with feeling like I deserve it.

    • I get that! I think we all have those moments. But you do deserve to be loved on and treated like the king she knows you are-relax and enjoy it. I am sure there will be many days when life will be crazy and she will need your help. So when she is saying, “I got this, you go relax”, do it! 🙂

  2. I try every day to do something special for my husband. I guess today I’ll have to do more to show him he is appreciated, love, and respected. I love honoring my husband.

    • I’ve loved seeing the words that ladies shared on our Facebook page and Twitter feed today! Awesome!!!! Words are a great way to build your husband up!

  3. Today’s challenge will be a challenge, but I am up for it and will do all I can to make my husband feel like a king!

  4. Wow This was actually an encouragement because I do so much of this already BUT I want to amp it up anyway! I do the Facebook stuff which he LOVVVVES and is a big sacrifice for me because I’m a super private person. This blog is the FIRST place I’ve shared publicly about …my life, other than those encouragements for him on Facebook. Sometimes I forget how much the world can knock him down w/ stress & doubts & judgment.. and how, while only God can truly fulfill him, part of that process is God’s gift of ME to help build him back up!

  5. Coconut oil should be standard in any married couples bedroom and everyone’s kitchen. Good for so many things!

    • You will never want to go back to that sticky synthetic product you used before! I promise. Its so expensive I hated to throw it out, but trust me it doesn’t even come close to comparing!

  6. Thanks so much for what you do for God and marriages. I shared the link to this post with the wives of our church in the DAILY DIRECTION pieces we use to expound upon this week’s message.

    Blessings!

    • That’s great pastor Dave, however I hope that you shared some of the other posts with the guys too! We all need challenged to give more in marriage!

  7. Boy did I fail at this day – and yesterday! We have not connected for two days now and I feel like we are really distanct.
    I got so wound up with work I missed. I am not good at this because it is not in my love language at all! And now it is like I am trying to make it up and does not have the same impact.
    Treating him like a king is not easy things either.
    Okay that being said, Servents heart… just remember…. servent’s heart!

    • Hi Denise,

      We ALL have had those days where we do the exact opposite of treating our spouse like the king or queen they deserve. You are not alone. Yet seeking to have a servants heart as you have shared will add to a spirit of unity and seeking to put your spouse above yourself. The one thing I have learned is not to dwell in yesterday. If you need to ask forgiveness, do so, but then leave that in the past. It is a new day and new opportunity to serve your hubby like a king! Blessings, Kate
