12. Tell him–and show him– that you are proud of him.
Words are powerful. We can choose to build our husband up or tear him down by how we talk to him and about him to others. A husband needs to know that his wife respects him and is proud of him. So, tell your husband that you are proud of the man that he is. Even if you are going through a hard time in your marriage, try to find some words of encouragement you can offer him. Your words are like wind to the sails of his confidence, so use them to propel him forward and build his spirt.
