Honey-Do List for Romance
To help you discover practical ways to speak your wife’s romantic love language and to help her meet yours
During The Date
What Says “I LOVE YOU” to your wife?
Every house demands attention: dirty windows, squeaky doors, broken blinds, and the like. These projects end up on what your wife might label a honey-do list: tasks she wants you to handle that may or may not match your own list of priorities. Conflict can emerge when things on her list aren’t as important to you as they are to her. In like manner, every husband and wife has a different honey-do list when it comes to romance.
What expressions of love carry the most meaning for your wife? How does her list differ from yours? Things that seem romantic to you may not spark the same feelings in your wife and what might “turn her on” may have little effect on you.
Assignment #1: Take turns identifying “gifts” that make you feel loved.
Assignment #2: Take turns identifying the three most meaningful expressions of love to add to one another’s honey-do lists. Suggestions can come from the above list or not. If your spouse says cleaning a cluttered kitchen shows love, write it down! Keep the short list with you to trigger simple, positive and practical ways of saying “I love you” in the weeks ahead!
Assignment #3: Hold hands and pray this simple prayer together…
Lord, thank you for making us unique. Help us to communicate our love for each other more often and in meaningful ways. As we do, remind us that loving each other is one way that we show our love for You. Amen
