How to Talk to a Woman (podcst)

Do you want to become the man of her dreams? Then you need to know how to talk to her. Listen to this podcast to find out “How to talk to a Woman”.

Man up and show some affection!

The Man Of Her Dreams (pt 2)

Men, if you want to be the man of your wife’s dreams you must love her sacrificially and unconditionally. Now I believe that sacrificial love today, in the context of pleasing your wife, involves 5 requirements. Number 1. If you are going to love your wife, you need to show her affection.

Becoming the Man of Her Dreams

The only way your marriage is going to be all you want it to be is for both husband and wife to be in tune with Jesus Christ. Getting Jesus first, is the easy part to figure out. How exactly we men play our part in the plan is a bit more difficult to evaluate some times. This is how you can be the man of her dreams!

Become the Man of Her Dreams, Avoid the Nightmare!

The Man of Her Dreams

The only way your marriage is going to be all you want it to be is for both husband and wife to be in tune with Jesus Christ.

Getting Jesus first, is the easy part to figure out. How exactly we men play our part in the plan is a bit more difficult to evaluate some times. As I was thinking about the difficulty of trying to hash out how you and I can become the men of our wives’ dreams, 2 thoughts came to mind.

First, I thought about the Diet Coke commercial, where the women in
the office building all gather at the window to watch the construction worker across the street take a break. Knowing that most of us do not look exactly like the model in the commercial, I thought we had better figure out a way to work with what we have.

The second thought that crossed my mind was that I could get my wife to write this message and have her tell us men how to become the man of our wives dreams. I was afraid of doing that, however, for fear that I wouldn’t be the man she described.
I finally decided that I had better check the Bible and see what it says about being a great husband. Probably the best passage of Scripture on this is found in the book of Ephesians 5:25-33

In verse 25, Paul says that husbands are to “love your wives as Christ loved the church”. The standard is pretty high isn’t it? But, what does it mean to love your wife as Christ loved the church? What can you do to become the man of your wife’s dreams?

Number 1:

You need to love your wife with a sacrificial love.

When Jesus came into the world, He loved the church. He loved us enough to leave heaven and all of its comforts, come to earth, take on a human body, be spit on and made fun of, crowned with a crown of thorns, and nailed to a cross. That’s what sacrificial love is, and that’s required if you are going to be the man of your wife’s dreams.

Now, when God said for you and I to love our wives that way, He didn’t say they deserved it. He didn’t say your wife was worthy of that kind of love. He didn’t say to love her that way if she did something to deserve it or if she did something for you in return. He said, “DO IT!” Sacrificial love is unconditional. If God waited until we deserved His love before He sent His Son, He never would have loved us. But, He did. He loved us like we were. The Bible says that, “God showed His love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” When you were at your worst, God still loved you.

In march of 1990, Robertson McQuilkin, the former president of Columbia Bible College, announced his resignation with the following letter.

“My dear wife, Muriel, has been in failing mental health for about 8 years. So far I have been able to carry both her ever-growing needs and my leadership responsibilities at Columbia Bible College. But recently it has become apparent that Muriel is contented most of the time she is with me and almost none of the time I am away from her. It is not just “discontentment.” She is filled with fear – even terror – that she has lost me and always goes in search for me when I leave home. Then she may be full of anger when she cannot get to me. So it is clear to me that she needs me now, full time. Perhaps it would help you to understand if I shared with you what I shared at the time of the announcement of my resignation in chapel. The decision was made, in a way, 42 years ago when I promised to care for Muriel “in sickness and in health . . . till death do us part.” So, as I told the students and faculty, as a man of my word, integrity has something to do with it. But so does fairness. She has cared for me fully and sacrificially all these years; if I cared for her the next 40 years I would not be out of debt. Duty, however, can be grim and stoic. But, there is more; I love Muriel. She is a delight to me – her childlike dependence and confidence in me, her warm love, occasional flashes of wit I used to relish so, her happy spirit and tough resilience in the face of her continual distressing frustration. I do not have to care for her, I get to! It is a high honor to care for such a person”.

My friend, if you want to be the man of your wife’s dreams, love her like that. Love her sacrificially and unconditionally. In the next few weeks we will learn what this means and look at the five (5) requirements of Sacrificial Love to our wives.

Avoiding Domestic Violence part I – by Eduardo Quintana –

Did you know that an act of Domestic Violence is committed every 15 seconds in America? Scary, isn’t it? In 1/4th of all marriages, violence occurs at least occasionally. 20% of all murders take place with in the family! Of those, 13% are committed against a spouse! So, how do we reduce stress and tension in the home?

The first thing you need to do is learn to laugh! Laughter is a gift God has given to us, to release tension, and to keep our spirits from being broken in this sin-cursed earth. The simple truth is, as the Book of Proverbs reminds us: “A joyful heart is good medicine. (Prov. 17:22)”

Besides what God tell us about laughter, lets take a look at some famous people and what they were quoted saying about laughter.

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” ― Audrey Hepburn

“If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.” ― Robert Frost

“Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.” ― Lord Byron

“It is cheerful to God when you rejoice or laugh from the bottom of your heart.” ―Martin Luther King Jr.

“Laughter is wine for the soul – laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness – the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.” ―Seán O’Casey

“Whatever it is probably won’t go away, so we might as well live and laugh through it. When we double over laughing, we’re bending so we won’t break. If you think your particular troubles are too heavy and too traumatic to laugh about, remember that laughing is like changing a baby’s diaper. It doesn’t solve any problems permanently, but it makes things more acceptable for awhile.” ― Barbra Johnson

Laughter is one of God’s ways of keeping us healthy, emotionally and physically. Medical science has proven that when you laugh, chemicals and enzymes are released in the brain which are extremely important to the health of our vital organs.
Listen to part of an article from a secular magazine called Executive Digest: “Scientists have been studying the effects of laughter on human beings and have found, among other things, that laughter has a profound and instantaneous effect on virtually every important organ of the human body. Laughter reduces unhealthy tensions, and relaxes the tissues, as well as exercising the most vital organs. Laughter, even when forced, results in a beneficial effect on us, both mentally and physically. So, the next time you feel nervous and jittery, indulge in a good laugh.”

I don’t think I could ever possibly deal with the stresses and pressures of life, if home were not a fun place to be. When we start having fun and laughing, the kids pick up on our spirits and join right in. They don’t even know what they’re doing sometimes, but they love the spirit! And our home is a place of laughter, a place of “playing”, games, chasing, walks, piles of leaves, etc.!

Here are 3 things you ought to give your children:
• Life
• Love
• Laughter

And here are 3 rules you ought to have for your home:
• Be fair
• Be firm
• Be fun

Learn to laugh…don’t take things so seriously…lighten up!

Do you have any good ideas for the men following Manly Training to infuse our homes with some laughter? If so, please share them here and let’s start a brainstorming session.
