Another thing I've been reading through is a book called, "Your Husband, Your Friend- What a Man Needs and Wants from His Wife" By Bob Barnes. It's been an easy, encouraging read. Much of the book is about simple understanding of the way your husband thinks and what would please him. It's not about control over you, but the Bible does call us to "be subject to our own husbands as to the Lord". It's not about being a doormat but willingly and lovingly serving him.

|Daddy and his mini-me. They are SO much alike!|
-His daily walk with the Lord
-The right kind of friends and associates
-His ability to work in harmony with others
-Safety in his travels
-The ability to make good decisions
Wow! What a list! Because my husband is the one who goes out and 'faces the world', I agree that this is important for me to do. And I'll bet that if my heart is thoughtful, loving and prayerful, that when he comes home, it will be to a more peaceful home. A place of rest for him.
When I grow up, I want to be the best wife and mother I can be!
