  • Respect.

  • What is it and why does it matter so much?

  • Did you know that most men crave, even need, respect more than love? That is a foreign concept to most women who long for a man to love them.

  • What inevitably happens in a relationship or marriage, is the woman loves her husband the way she longs for, and respect is forgotten.

  • Ladies, your man NEEDS your respect.

  • Alright we get it, we want to respect our man.

  • But, how?

  • Maybe it is because I am teaching my toddler the ABCs, or maybe it is just because it is catchy, but I came up with a list of things we can do with and for our man to make him feel respected following the ABCs.

  • The ABCs of Respect

  • A - Admire him

  • B - Brag on him

  • C- Cheerleader

  • D- Demonstrate

  • E - Engage

  • F - Forgive

  • G - Greet him

  • H - Helpmeet

  • I - Interest

  • J- Just do it

  • K - Keep yourself up

  • L - Learn

  • M- Makeout

  • N - Nag less

  • O - Open up

  • P - Pray

  • Q - Questions

  • R - Remember

  • S - Smile

  • T - Talk positive

  • U - Undivided attention

  • V- Very carefully criticize

  • W - Wife, not mom

  • X - eXamine yourself

  • Y - Yes more

  • Z - Zip it

  • I highly encourage you to work on some of these each day.

  • Try something scary and ask your man, "What are some things that I do that show you respect?" Then follow up with, "What are some things that I do that show disrespect to you?" That should keep you busy.
