Filling Desires

We started the blog with this goal: to create a community of men that share a desire to love their wives like God loved the church with the hope that we become a stronger Christian husbands. We had no plan or really any ideas. We thought we would simple start writing. It has been amazing how God has taken us forward.

We recently received some feedback from a new reader. They commented on how well we have covered the three greatest inner needs that God has created within a husband and wife – for love, significance and security). God designed a husband to have a greater need to significance, while the wife is uniquely created with a deeper need for security.

A crucial element in the marriage relationship is becoming aware of your partner’s desires and learning to meet them creatively.

Philippians 2:4 says, “Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
