Giveaway: The Husband Project by Kathi Lipp


I simply can't say enough great things about this book! In just one week, I've noticed some pretty huge changes in my relationship with my husband (in a good way)!

The author, Kathi Lipp, has very generously offered to give away one copy of her book to one of my visitors both this week and next week! AND she will sign it for the winner!! :)

For an entry this week (Make Sure to leave an email so I can notify you if you are the winner):

1. Leave a comment with a suggestion of how to show your husband how much you love and appreciate him (after all, in two more weeks, I will have done all the projects in the book - so I need some more great ideas!).

2. Join me! Check out a few of my project posts and do one for your husband, then come back and let me know what you thought!

3. Leave a thoughtful comment on the review over at Wendi's Book Corner.

Whether or not you have a wonderful relationship with your husband, I encourage you to be a part of my journey over the next month or so (yes, things can happen, and it may take me longer than the planned 21 days!) at The Husband Project ~ A Wife's Journey.



Open to residents of the United States and Canada. The drawing will be held Monday February 23rd - Good luck!!

My husband drinks coffee every day, and the coffee pot is disgusting. I found this link to help clean it: http://www.howtocleanthings.com/how-to-clean-coffee-maker.htm

I was so hoping to get a chance to win this book. One thing I do for my husband is to leave short little love notes where he'll find them; stuck to his steering wheel, on the milk jug, on the bathroom mirror, etc. I leave them in places where I know he'll see them.

My husband doesn't like to pick up after himself, but that's my only complaint. I love him nevertheless! Thanks for the giveaway!

actually listen to him

I'm really bad about having dinner ready when he gets home, yet I know it's something he likes. That would be something I could do for him. (As a side note this is not entirely my fault. Hehe - totally making excuses here. My husband commutes 20 miles on his bicycle, and I never know when he's going to get home. So I do my best to get dinner done before he gets home, but sometimes I just wait until he's there so that I know dinner's not going to be ruined.)

Thank you for a great giveaway. One of the things I like to do for my husband daily is to turn his bed on - we have a heated pad on our bed with each side with its own controls and he likes his full blast so when we put the kids to bed at 8pm I turn it on and when we go to bed a few hours later its nice and toasty for him. Helps him sleep and helps his aches. Thank you

My boyfriend has diabetes, and it is vey important that his feet are examined. I rub his feet with lotion every night, while checking for problems. He loves the attention, and it only takes a few minutes!

I try not to fill up his to-do list with too many things...to give him time to concentrate on one thing at a time

Sheila said...

When my hubby comes home for work every night I have his clothes for the next day and his pjs waiting in the bathroom for him. I also have the small heater going warming the bathroom so he will be warm and toasty when he steps out of the shower.

What a neat book! I think planning an evening away from the kids would be perfect.

I actually listen to what he says. some people are present when their spouse speaks but they don't listen. I listen to what he says, I ask questions and acknowledge what he says. that is a gift more of us should give our spouses.

I make sure the door is open, and the outside lights are on when he comes home at night. Makes it easier for him to get in the house to relax. iwontru@yahoo

jodene said...

I try to listen to him when he tells me how bad his days are - it's hard and depressing in todays economy. We have been together over 20 years so this book could really help us out.

jolt! said...

Bake him chocolate chip cookies! His favorite.

bill3sgal said...

I'll get up with the kids when they wake early and let him stay in bed. (We alternate days, but sometimes I skip mine)

sounds interesting

Susan said...

I make sure the porch light is on these dark evenings to welcome him home from work. And if he's going on a business trip, sometimes I iron the shirts for him. My husband likes to do the grocery shopping, but he doesn't like to put the stuff away. So I usually do that part.
Isn't it funny how none of us "posters" mentioned more sex...?

I try to do little things. Buy the kind of expensive coffee he likes at the grocery store. Do his ironing for him (he knows I hate to iron and he usually does it himself). Call him in the middle of the day for no reason just to talk. Thanks for teh chance to win.

Donna M. Clark said...

I try to do some little things every day to let him know how much I love him. I let him sleep in. I dust and vacuum, although I am not nearlyas bothered as him with a wee bit of dust. I cook his favorite meal. Things like that.

marsplus1 said...

Always try to make contact everyday...no matter how busy. even if you write it in a note to give to him later. Been married 15 years and always communicate in some way(at least "hey sexy" on a daily basis).

lisagee said...

It's a shame I am not married but...my sis in law would appreciate this book :o)

jeanne said...

This sounds like a wonderful book! Sure could use it. A way to make him feel good, would be to bring in the wood on a cold day when he's been out working so when he gets home its already done.

My husband loves an orderly home. Despite my natural tendencies to be a laid-back spirit I do my best to respect his wishes and now we are both happier, plus, our home is always guest ready!

I would give this to my daughter.

Kathy said...

The best thing to do for your husband is to listen. When you see what he is about it is easier to respond to him.

Lu Ann said...

I tell him often how much I appreciate how hard he works.
