Have you ever wondered how to get your husband to do more around the house? It’s the number one thing women say they want from their man.
So why are we so unsuccessful at eliciting his help? Because we miss the most important factor!
I recently read an impassioned post on Instagram. This lovely young woman had been away at work all day only to come home to chaos.
- She took a time out, regrouped, and restarted.
- Her husband went to the gym.
Her advice to women is that they don’t have to do everything perfectly. But it was clear she’d been trying really hard to do just that.
What is the One Thing she could have done that would have made all the difference for her and for her family?
Honestly, as an expert in male psychology, I wasn’t the least bit surprised when she stated, “… then my husband said in the middle of the chaos he was going to the gym.” Men hate confrontation … and women’s angry expectations that men support them in the madness to make everything perfect.
The Truth is:
- Help around the house is NOT the number one thing every woman wants.
- What she really wants is to be valued. cherished. loved. more than anything else.
And her husband wants to be her priority as well. Not treated like an employee … or worse yet … one of the kids who needs to get in line with the program.
How to Get Your Husband to Do More Around the House?
When you make your husband – your relationship with your husband – your first priority, he will value, cherish, love you more than anything else on the face of this earth. And he will begin to do more around the house … without being asked.
Learn how to make him your priority without losing yourself!

What’s a better way of resolving Cinderella’s Problem?
I have often identified with Cinderella. She gets just one brief night of fantasy at The Royal Ball where she falls in love with the Handsome Prince, and he likewise falls in love with her. But then she must return to her life of Poverty and Rejection.
The Resolution of That Story depends upon the Handsome Prince.
Fortunately for Cinderella, the Handsome Prince feels her loss deeply. He cannot live without her, determines to find her no matter the cost, and makes her his wife. Happily ever after.
- But what if the Problem is not her life of Poverty and Rejection?
- What if the Problem is the false identity she has accepted?
- What if the Problem is how she sees herself?
- As a woman with no value?
Resolving Cinderella’s Problem
Rather than wait for the Prince to rescue her, she would be a Wise Woman to discover her True Identity.
Which – by the way – would make it a lot easier for the Handsome Prince to find her because she would be in plain sight rather than hiding – or being hidden by the lies that have surrounded her. A Double Win!!

For more than a decade, I have been teaching women about biblical, research-based ways to understand and partner with the men they love.
Furthermore, I realized that an awful lot of books written for women fail to (or inadequately) address our biblical partnership with men, especially with our husbands.
Women – in God’s original design – are way more important on this earth than we’ve been led to believe!
More recently I realized that most women – including myself – don’t fully understand our value & our purpose in today’s world.
And that Wisdom is personified as a Woman!
Yes, learning how to be a godly woman is more important on this earth than we’ve been led to believe! It takes wisdom & confidence to be influential for good.
