I write on behalf of the Wife UP wives from all over the nation. The Wife UP women have different personalities, backgrounds and styles, but we have a common interest…you! I pray that when you read our letters, your hearts will receive the message we desire to convey.
We have come together from all over the nation through Wife UP. We have discovered more about ourselves and how we can be better wives to you. Husbands, before we write about anything else, we want to start by saying we apologize.
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
We realize we have not always encouraged you or spoken to you in the highest regard the way we originally committed to and have been instructed. We love you from the core of our hearts and we will always be there for you. You are a blessing to us!
When we said “I do” we meant it and we will continue to every day for the rest of our lives.
- We will love, honor and respect you – we look to you as the head of our family and we trust God that He will continue to use and develop you as a leader in our home.
- We will always have your back – we are your “ride or die” wives. Even if we have a disagreement and we get mad at you, know that we still love you and we will support you.
- We will commit to our union through the good and the bad – You make us happy, but we didn’t just marry you for happiness. As time goes by we change, emotions change and circumstances change. We choose to love you no matter the circumstance. We commit to loving you through the unknown.
We acknowledge that we don’t say it as often as you’d hope (if we say it at all at times), but we do care deeply about you. We’re passionate about you because you are our world–we’ve invested in our commitment to you, and we’ve let down our guards to expose our vulnerabilities to you. We need you!
We have your best interest in our heart and minds…trust that we are committed to you. We love you and we are always praying for you.
