Seven Basic Needs of A Husband

Hubby comes home today from traveling all week again, and I just can't wait to squeeze him ❤️ #mcm #alldayeveryday  @snapshotsandmythoughts

I stumbled across this very old piece of paper while going through a box of old keepsakes from Jordan’s parents. Written on this piece paper was “Seven Basic Needs of A Husband”. After reading them I couldn’t help but think how each one was on point. I have mentioned it before how a women’s role is so vital in her husband’s life, you can make or break him not only with your words but also with your actions. I googled it to see who had written this, and it was Cliff Palmer who was a Pastor at South Heights Baptist Church. I hope this challenges and inspires you like it did me. So here it is ..


1. A Husband needs a wife who respects him as a man. 
2. A husband needs a wife who accepts him as her leader and believes in his God-given responsibilities.
3. A husband needs a wife who will continue to develop inward and outward beauty.
4. A husband needs a wife who can lovingly appeal to him when he is going beyond his limitations and wisely respond to those who question his ideas, goals, or motives.
5. A husband needs quality time to be alone with himself and with the Lord.
6. A husband needs a wife who is grateful for all he has done and is doing for her.
7. A husband needs a wife who will be praised by other people for her character and her good works. 



Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. – Proverbs 31:11

Thank you for sharing. I can see where this is true.


Cliff Palmer was not the pastor at South Heights Baptist Church. He was the pastor at First Baptist Church in Springdale, AR. It is now known as Cross Church. However, South Heights current pastor attended in Springdale. I believe he secured their tapes at some point after Palmer left. Anyway, you correct. Cliff Palmer is an amazing teacher.
