More Than Encouragement

If your husband or wife loves to play sports then find every way you can to get them out there playing their favorite sport. Writing – same thing. Serving the poor – same thing. Painting, acting, alone time for walks in the morning, cooking creatively, training dogs competitively. Whatever it is – deliberately get them out there to do what they love. Create space in your schedule, watch the kids, set aside money – do these things directly in open conversation. Don’t just show a general sense of interest. Get active. Do it simply to do good to them. The stories to be told in such relationships are powerful and beautiful.
