Bob: I remember my friend, Robyn McKelvey, saying that she realized, early in her marriage, that when she took off her wedding dress, she needed to put on her cheerleader uniform, that every wife needs to cheer on her husband to call out the hero in her husband.

That’s what Juli Slattery has been talking about today with Dave and Ann Wilson. In fact, Juli’s written a book on this subject; it’s called Finding the Hero in Your Husband. It’s been revised and updated, and we’ve got copies of the book in our FamilyLife Today Resource Center. You can go online at to find out more about how to get a copy of the book; or call us at 1-800-FL-TODAY.

Let me remind you: Juli is going to be one of the speakers on board the Love Like You Mean It marriage cruise in 2022. We still have some staterooms available for the cruise; it is starting to fill up as people are excited about being able to get back together and to cruise together again. Information about the cruise is available on our website at You can sign up by calling 1-800-FL-TODAY; 1-800-358-6329; 1-800-“F” as in family, “L” as in life, and then the word, “TODAY.”

We’ve got a special offer going right now for FamilyLife Today listeners that is good through next Monday. If you want to take advantage of a special opportunity to save some money on the 2022 cruise, get in touch with us this week. Hear from speakers like Juli Slattery, and Alex and Stephen Kendrick, Dave and Ann Wilson, Ron Deal, others who are going to be joining us, along with a great lineup of artists and musicians.

The cruise is a great getaway opportunity for couples. You can sign up today—go to for more information, or call us to register at 1-800-FL-TODAY—and then join us in February on the Love Like You Mean It marriage cruise.


Now, tomorrow, Dave and Ann Wilson will continue their conversation with Dr. Juli Slattery and talk about how critical it is for a wife to understand rightly what it means for her to respect her husband, and how important that is for him to feel respect and know that she respects him. That comes up tomorrow. I hope you can be with us for that.

On behalf of our hosts, Dave and Ann Wilson, I’m Bob Lepine. We will see you back next time for another edition of FamilyLife Today.
