“100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs to Hear,” by Lisa Jacobson, and “100 Words of Affirmation Your Wife Needs to Hear,” by Matt Jacobson, are wonderful tools for married couples. “100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs to Hear,” is well written, with heartfelt sentiments that simply don’t roll off of our tongues as automatically as they might have as when we were newlyweds.
The 100 simple phrases are each accompanied by seasoned marriage advice to promote healthy relationships between wives and their husbands. Honestly, some of the sentiments made me feel awkward, and even embarrassed at the thought of saying some of these things out loud! But that was very telling for me, and as I enter the second decade of marriage, inspired me to get to the root of why those words felt so foreign.
I recommend this book to wives seeking advice on how to have Christ centered marriages. It’s a helpful gauge to see if a longstanding marriage is on the right track, and for newlyweds, it’s an excellent road map of good habits to establish. Alongside reading this book, I asked my husband to read “100 Words of Affirmation Your Wife Needs to Hear,” by Lisa’s wife Matt Jacobson. Marriage is a team effort, and I would recommend couples read through these books at the same time to bring them closer together through great discussion that could spark as a result of these affirmations.
