What Still Surprises You About Your Spouse?


Debbie: I’m still surprised by how faithful John is to meet with and listen to God. How he continues to copy Scripture so he can pay attention to every word. John’s humility and integrity even when it hurts. How much he loves and respects me after all these years! 

How much I still need him to tell me he loves me and he tells me often. How he moves towards me when he would rather walk away. How much he supports me with all that he manages for our family. By how much I still learning from him. 

John: I'm still surprised by how much Debbie still loves, respects, and desires me. How high capacity she is and gets more done than any human being I know. How much attention she pays to the little things in life. How much she loves God, the whole Bible and loves learning and talking about it.

How adaptable she is to so many people. How competitive she is. She makes a contest of everything. And she wins. How much she aches over the brokenness of loved ones. 
 
John and Debbie Woodall have been married for 42 years.

The Best Gift You Can Give Your Spouse Is a Healthy You


Last month, we shared 30 questions for your wife. This month, we get the other side of the coin.

Ladies, be curious about your husband. Ditch the obligatory “How was your day?” and replace it with unique, thought provoking, open-ended questions.

Demonstrating genuine interest in your husband and opening dialogue shows that you care and enhances one of the joys of marriage—the sharing of lives.
