The Importance of Naming Your Spouse plus Join the Name Your Spouse Challenge



Think of a positive title for your spouse.

What came to mind?

Was it lover, friend, provider?

I began the habit over 10 years ago, of giving my husband titles that described his character.

I would think of descriptive words too describe how much of a blessing he is to me.

I started doing this for two reasons.

The first was in an effort to acknowledge his purpose in my life.

The second was to intentionally create a buffer between any negative thoughts that could arise during stressful times in our marriage.

Over time, these descriptive words began to shape not only my thoughts toward my husband for the better but my actions as well.

It became harder for me to look at him as a replaceable part of my life.

After awhile, I could no longer even image my life without him.

A love designed only for their special role as our husbands.

— Amen

  1. This is SO GOOD! I love the part about how naming him made it harder for you to think of him as a replaceable part of your life. And how awesome to build an arsenal against our own thoughts, to combat where our enemy would like those thoughts to take us! Thank you!
