Fascinating Womanhood is a e-course based on the book which explores the qualities of a good wife and characteristics of a good wife.

It shows women how to be a good christian wife. A good wives guide, you may describe it with lessons every good wife should know.

This page is a section on Week Two, in the Understanding Men Section. The teaching encourages women to embark on their own "When He Comes Home" (from work) project. See below.

The Fascinating Womanhood Way to Welcome A Man Home From Work

how to be a good wife

Get Your Work Done

Plan your work with an eye on the clock. Set it aside an hour before he is expected. Your anguished cry, "are you home already" is not exactly a warm welcome.

Have Dinner Ready

Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal, on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal is part of the warm welcome needed.

Prepare Yourself

Take fifteen minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. This will also make you happy to see him, instead of too tired to care.

Turn off the worry and be glad to be alive and grateful for the man who is going to walk in. While you are resting, you can be thinking about your F.W. assignment and all you can do to make him happy and give his spirits a lift. When you arise, take care of your appearance. Touch up your make up, fix your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.

Be a little more cheerful, and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.

Clear Away The Clutter

Just before your husband arrives, make one last trip through the main part of the house, gathering up school books, toys, paper, etc. in a bucket or wastebasket and put them in the back bedroom for sorting later.

Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order. It will give you a lift too.

Having the house in order is another way of letting him know that you care, that he is number one.

Prepare the Children

If you have small children, take just a few minutes to wash their hands and faces, comb their hair and if necessary, change their clothes. They are his little treasures and he would like to see him look the part.

Minimize all Noise

Especially give heed to this if your husband has to join rush hour traffic. At the time of his arrival, eliminate noise of washer, dryer, dishwasher or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet at the time of their father's arrival. Let them be a little noisy beforehand, to get it out of their system.

Be Happy To See Him

Greet him with a warm smile and act glad to see him. Tell him that it is good to have him home. This will make his day worthwhile. If there is any romance left in you, he needs it now.

Some Don'ts

Don't greet him with problems or complaints.

Solve the problems you can before he gets home and save those you must discuss with him until later in the evening. Also don't complain if he is late for dinner. Count this as a minor problem when compared to what he may have gone through that day. Don't allow the children to rush him with their problems or requests. Allow them to briefly greet their father but save demands for later.

The Goal

Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

In addition, apply the principles of Fascinating Womanhood and your husband will want to come home. He will rather be with you than with anyone in the world and will spend whatever time he can possibly spare you. Try living all of these rules for his homecoming and see what happens.

This is the way to bring a man home to your side, not by pressure, persuasion or moral obligation.
