The Homeschool Dad’s Guide to Getting Lucky – WHS 32

Welcome back! After taking some time off in the Summer I’m back to releasing podcasts on a semi-regular basis.

In this week’s podcast I discuss the plan going forward for the podcast which will be released at least 2x a month.

I review the excellent e-book The Husband’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Marla Taviano (@marlataviano). Husbands: you want this book. Wives: you want to buy this book for your husband. It’s only $2.99 so buy it now!

[Added 3/28/2017] In the episode I don’t share enough about the book. I’ve fleshed out my thoughts on each of the chapters so husbands (and wives) can get a better sense of the topics covered in the book

The Six Steps

  1. Know Your Woman – Fortunately we only have to try to understand one woman: our wife! Marla Gives some great tips for figuring our your woman’s needs.
  2. Guard Your Eyes – Only have eyes for your wife. Thinking about her and only her will help make her the woman of your dreams (literally).
  3. Earn Her Respect – Don’t make it hard for your wife to respect you. Give her reasons to have a respectful relationship with you.
  4. Pray for Her – Pretty simple. We’re commanded to pray for our wives. If you’re not a Christian, encourage your wife and think highly of her.
  5. Slow It Down – The goal isn’t to get to the end zone in under two minutes, guys.
  6. Get It On – Get creative and figure out what your wife likes and wants and she’ll do the same for you.
