The following are some basic “DOs and DON’Ts” of how a wife can be “encouraging” to her husband. The list is by no means exhaustive or comprehensive, nor is there much background, explanation, or anecdotal application offered here. That’s because this writing was not intended to be a treatise on the matter, but rather these are merely a few basic points that occurred to me while addressing the topic in casual correspondence. They are, nevertheless, sound, Scriptural, and, effectual. It was only after I read over what I had written essentially extemporaneously that I felt impressed it might be good to pass along the result to others.
