The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs

If there is one thing I don’t understand, like most guys, it’s women. We guys can usually admit that. Men have spent millions of dollars just to gain a little more knowledge into God’s most confusing creation.

What I didn’t know, is although women believe they have guys figured out, the truth is they really don’t understand how we click or how to pull the love, they most desire, out of us.

Love and Respect definitely hits the spot for both genders with its incredible theories based on rock solid theology. I can’t tell you how much of an impact this book will have on your marriage.

Love and Respect

Love Your Wife!

“Let every one of you in particular so love your wife as you even as himself…” –Ephesians 5:33a

This is a command from God to love our wife. It’s not a suggestion for some, and it’s pretty clear that “every one” is to love your wife.

Guys, if you want to know how to do this and fully understand the importance of how this will benefit your marriage, Love and Respect has some of those answers. Will you master how to provide perfect love for your wife and have a happily ever after, story book romance with no issues ever again? Absolutely not, but I guarantee if you read this book with an open mind, you will vastly improve your relationship with your wife in a way you’ve never experienced.


Respect Your Husband!

“…the wife must respect her husband.” — Ephesians 5:33b

Ladies, here is the key to your man’s heart. While you may think and desire love, he desperately needs your respect! As Dr. Eggrichs points out throughout the entire book, this isn’t about being a doormat or allowing yourself to be trampled on. This is all about unconditional respect as commanded by God. Just like the guys are commanded to love their wives unconditionally, so are the ladies to respect their husbands unconditionally.

If you’re really good-willed and want to know how to improve your relationship with your husband, I urge you to read this book. It will open your eyes to how he really thinks and feels about your version of love and his version of respect.


Love and Respect Unconditionally For God!

I think the biggest takeaway for me was towards the end of the book when Emerson makes the point our Love and Respect is never about your spouse or even you in the end. It’s all about God, it’s always been about God. We can only give unconditional Love and Respect when God gives us the ability, and we do it, just like everything we do, to honor and glorify Him. We do it because He has commanded it and wants us to please Him.

To learn more about this principle, please read the book. This book isn’t about any one gender being less than the other. It’s about all of us being less than Him and giving Unconditional Love and Respect to our wives and husbands FOR Him.
