10 Ways to Bless Your Husband When He Is Having a Stressful Week

Proverbs 31:12 says the excellent wife, “does [her husband] good.” That is especially important to remember when our husbands are having a stressful week. Last week my husband Lee seemed a little more tense than usual. He had a busy ministry weekend coming up so the boys and I worked hard to make sure life at home was as stress-free as possible!

Here are 10 ways to bless your husband when he is having a stressful week:
10 ways to bless your husband - from Impact - sandrapeoples.com

  1. Remember things for him. Write them down, send him a reminder, or gently remind him if he forgets. The fewer things he has to have on his mind the better.
  2. Do something around the house that’s usually his job. Take out the trash, fill-up your car with gas, plug in all the electronics to charge. . . anything you can do so he doesn’t have to.
  3. Cook his favorite foods. We had chocolate covered strawberries last week “just because.” It’s ok to spoil him just a little!
  4. Give him time to adjust to being home before you talk about all the issues of your day.
  5. Pick up around the house. When our lives feel out of control we usually try to control what we can. Having a clean house helps everyone feel better.
  6. Encourage the kids to be on their best behavior (this one can benefit you too!).
  7. Help him find time to unwind and relax. Rent a movie he’s been wanting to watch or check out a book from the library you know he would enjoy.
  8. Remind him to take care of himself! He needs to get enough sleep, exercise, and good food.
  9. Step in when you can. Answer the phone and take a message. Respond to the emails sent to both of you.
  10. Pray for him and pray with him!
