Bragging about my husband

Sunday night this was the picture Jonathan had texted to me around 10:00 p.m, with text that read "off to work for the night". This week he’s headed off to Oklahoma , working night hours. As many of you may know, I-5 has been slammed with work. Although we are so thankful for the prosperity it brings, we miss seeing our daddy. I just wanted to do this post in honor of my wonderful husband Jonathan. I am so thankful that he goes out every day or night and works for me and our girls. I think it is very important for wives to show their husbands their thankfulness in simple, visual and physical ways. I have found that simple things like keeping a clean and warm home show him that I care, as well as much affection when he is home. Also doing extra little things makes him feel special. For example, I know Jonathan really likes chocolate ice cream and crunchy green grapes so when he is gonna be home I like to make sure the fridge is all stocked up. O yes, and most importantly SPENDING HIS MONEY WISELY! I am not saying I have attained to this on all levels, but I like to make it a game and see how much I can save in a week. Even the basic things like making sure his laundry is folded neatly and in his drawers can speak volumes, it shows that he is on the for front of my mind. I like the girls to be a part of honoring their dad to so Emma and I will paint pictures for daddy, (good bonding time for mommy as well) and give them to him when he gets home. I also record lil' videos of her on my iphone and e-mail them to him, gotta love technology! Anyway I did not write this post to say I am perfect in some of these ways of showing honor to my husband, but to share with you ways I have seen create peace and show Jonathan I love him very much. I am hoping this will encourage any wife who is reading this to show their husband how thankful they really are for the life he lays down for them every day.


  1. Molly, with words like these you are certainly a wise woman building her home. It gives great glory to God when you speak and fulfill your wifely vocation with such a grateful, happy attitude. And it gives honor to Jonathan too, which is what a good wife should do . " A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones." Proverbs 12:4

    Thanks for this wonderful post.
    Keep preachin', sista!

  2. I am encouraged again, Molly. Thanks for the reminder that we get to be as creative as we want to be in the ways we honor our husbands. Love you :)

  3. What a good reminder that as a wife and mother, I am 'home'. It reminded me also of the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. I really like how these verses are said in the Amplified Bible: She opens her mouth in skillful and godly Wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness [giving counsel and instruction]. She looks well to how things go in her household, and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat.
    Proverbs 31:26-27

    Bless you, Molly.

  4. Amen! I like the title and we do have so much to brag about. Thanks for the reminder. It's easy to forget in the middle of our very busy lives. By the way I'm working on getting the hat for Madelyn, but maybe I can take you to the store (where they are) too someday. It's really neat. We like being with you and your family. :) p.s. I've also been so encouraged by your vocal bragging about your husband. Thank you
