Top 10 list of ways to honor and love your wife in the day-to-day

1. Pray for her and ask her how you can help her grow in her individual relationship with God, including areas that don't directly benefit you.

2. Not all loving touch needs to lead to intercourse. Our wives need to know that there are times when we are holding them because we love them and not because we are looking forward to our own pleasure.

3. If she is trying to improve herself, take note and encourage her, but make sure you don't suggest that you'll love her more after she improves herself.

4. If you are going out, offer to run errands for her while you are out. If she is going out, ask if there are things you can do around the house while she is gone.

5. Encourage her time with other women, who understand what it means to be a woman, and can affirm her femininity in ways that only women can.

6. Let the things that matter to her matter to you. If she roots for a particular team, root with her. If she does cross-stitch, pick out designs that you'd like to see, and maybe even ask her to teach you how.

7. Let pleasing her be enough to please you. Do things pleasing to her because you love her and not just so she'll return the favor.

8. When she has a problem, realize that she may not be asking you to solve the problem but just to listen and let her know she's not facing it alone.

9. When she's troubled by something, even if you think it's nothing, remember that it is real to her and be supportive.

10. Give small gifts even when it's not her birthday. When you go to the store, pick up a rose. If she likes crafts, pick up some thread. It doesn't need to be big, but it says she was in your thoughts while you were apart.
