Try A Little Tenderness

I love the scene in the movie Shrek where Donkey gives Shrek some advice on winning Fiona’s heart. He says, “You’ve got to, got to, got to, try a little tenderness!” Hi I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries and if you’re a husband, Donkey’s words can teach you a lot about how to treat your wife. Tenderness goes a long way with a woman. So, why not try a little tenderness with your wife today? Maybe stop and get her some flowers on your way home from work or write a simple note telling her three things you love about her. Or, my favorite tip, take a sticky note and write the word perfect on it. Then place it on top of the numbers on her bathroom scale so that’s what she’ll see the next time she weighs herself. These things take very little time or money but will speak volumes of love to your wife in a very tender way! If you’d like more ideas on how to treat your wife, visit Proverbs 31 Ministries at
