Husbands Direct Righteous Living in the Home

Posted: 31 Oct 2008 02:00 AM CDT

“ ‘Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it’ (Eph. 5:25). With that kind of love, brethren, we will be better husbands and fathers, more loving and spiritual leaders. Happiness at home is most likely to be achieved when practices there are founded upon the teachings of Jesus Christ (see Ensign, Nov. 1995, 102). Ours is the responsibility to ensure that we have family prayer, scripture study, and family home evening. Ours is the responsibility to prepare our children to receive the ordinances of salvation and exaltation and the blessings promised to tithe payers. Ours is the privilege to bestow priesthood blessings of healing, comfort, and direction.”

Russell M. Nelson, “Our Sacred Duty to Honor Women,” Ensign, May 1999, 39-40

I am in no way posting this as a nudge to my husband...but because I am so thankful that he tries so hard to do all of these things.

He helps me with whatever needs to be done around the house or with the kids and only makes a few sarcastic remarks here and there along the way. :)

I am so lucky to have him and even more lucky to have him around as much as I do...I know in a couple of months things will be different b/c of tax season...so believe me, I take full advantage of this more flexible time of year with him.

This song says "I'm lucky to be in love with my best friend..." and I feel the same way. I trust him completely and I love how he encourages and inspires me to be better.

Mmmmmmmmwaaaahhh! Love ya babe!

Yeah, I know this is a cheesy engagement picture, but I love it! Look how young we are!! And we honestly haven't had any recent pics together...I think it's about time we did!!!
