NewlyWed Chronicles: What Women Want

marnie and elijahMy 14-year-old son Elijah and I had been to the store and were on our way back. I’m not sure how the subject came up, but I took a moment to plant a few seeds with my son about the kind of man he might like to be. He’s a very kind and thoughtful young man — very helpful and has a genuine love for people.

When I spot that kind of person, I can’t resist giving him the inside secrets to getting even better results in life. I suggested to Elijah that he take the opportunity to learn as much as he could about home repairs from Chris (his stepfather). I explained that if he knows how to fix things, it’ll give him the edge when he’s ready to find a wife. Women find a man who can fix things incredibly attractive.

We walked in the house and Chris was sweeping the floor (without being asked).

I pointed to Chris and said, “Now that, that’s just hot!”

Boundaries & Rules in Family Life

One of the questions I’m asking the successful women entrepreneurs I’m interviewing for the summit and book is, “Do you have rules or boundaries in your marriage and family?”

A few days ago, I interviewed Courtney Beardall and asked her this question. You can listen to Courtney’s 2-minute reply here:

I loved her delightful list of “family rules.”

  1. Be thankful.
  2. Pay with hugs and kisses
  3. Do your best.
  4. Try new things.
  5. Be happy.
  6. Use kind words.
  7. Laugh all the time.
  8. Share.
  9. Listen to your parents.
  10. Say please and thank you.
  11. Trust God.
  12. Remember to always pray
  13. Love each other.
