  1. Thanks for putting this list in a print out. I got to #44 before my mind began to blur! I use that print out for reference and shall some tips with my contacts. I'm just wondering how long it took to come up with 100 good advice tips? Impressive!
  2. Melissa, I have changed computers and lost the free 100 ways to love your husband list. I have an online friend coming from out of state to my home to take a break from emotional abuse and I would love another copy of your list. I am building up a set of resources for her to take home after I minister to her. May I? Sorry to ask but am retired and bucks are getting tighter every year. ty. Diane Kerchner
    1. I sent you an email. However, I do want to say that if your friend is suffering from emotional abuse, loving her husband more (or better) is NOT the answer. She needs help from a professional and away from her husband. Marriage counseling is not recommended as long as abuse is going on. She can't make him stop by being a better wife. :)
