Why I LOVE him like I DO…

In honor of  my special day (My 1st year anniversary of being married to the love of my life), I’d like to list out some of the reasons why I love this incredible man God gave me. It’s not a complete list, but it’s representative of the amazing man he is.


  • He is a man of measured words… when he says something, it’s worth hearing.
  • He teaches me about God and leads in spiritual things (Bible reading, praying, scripture memorization)
  • He loves to read and we talk about what we’re reading together.
  • He studies and memorizes the Word of God (seriously, y’all, he’s amazing at this. He has so much scripture memorized, and he leads us in joint memorization, too).
  • He can make some mean barbeque chicken and disinfects like NONE other. 🙂
  • I love that he leads in family “Bible Time”, nearly every night.


  • I love that he really, really loves me. (This may seem self-focused, but the truth is, it’s actually a biblical picture of love– we love Christ because He loved us first… the same is true for Daro & I.)
  • Though neither of us had perfect pasts,  I LOVE that we aren’t worried about comparing each other to other people.
  • He is very intentional about being faithful to me– in action, word, and thought.
  • He’ll rub my feet whenever I ask, and has done so many, many times when I haven’t asked.
  • I love that he will watch the movies I like and actually interact with me about them (like Jane Austen kind of stuff– WHAT a guy!).
  • I love that he is willing to do things around the house too, so that we can have time together.
  • I love that we both crack each other up. I don’t know if anyone else would find either of us very funny, but we each can make each other laugh in ways that no one else can.
  • I love that he’s a good surpriser… big and small, he’s surprised me so many times!
  • I know that he loves me, because he apparently talks about me a lot when we’re not together and other people tell me so.
  • I love that he remembers special days and consistently does special things to celebrate.
  • He communicates with me about our relationship– what’s going well, if there are any struggles, etc., and then is willing to make changes with me so that we can improve our marriage.
  • He truly wants to and strives to love me like Christ loves the church.
  • He’s the most fun, most interesting, most attractive, most kind man I’ve ever known.

And honestly, there’s so much more. But this gives a glimpse into our marriage and life together. Like Solomon’s bride described her husband in Song of Solomon 3, this is “him whom my soul loves”… and I will always be grateful to God for this incredible man that I get to be one with. 🙂

  1. A Christian Marriage is a beautiful thing.. And Celebrating your One Year Anniversary is A Blessing.. Congradulations!!! You Two Are an amazing couple!!!

  2. Happy Anniversary and congratulations!!! I pray that God will continue to keep your marriage in love, peace, and harmony. May He protect and guide what He alone has put together. May you see prosperity beyond what you expect.

  3. This is an awesome list! I think if every woman could do a list like this on a consistent basis, it would outweigh the bad things about their husbands.

    Keep up the good work and I wish you the best as you work on year 2!

  6. I just want to say that it really makes me happy to know that the couples that i dreamed and i wanted for me really exist. I am 20 yrs old and my hubby is 23 we been married for 1 yr and is been amazing focusing in the good moments like the moment we knew we were pregnant and more things but the thing is that when we get into arguments the first thing he tells me is that he is gonna leave us and often he gets mad for no reason and he always picks his mom and half sister over my daughter and I. Therefore i cant stand his 17 yr old sister she even txts him dirty txts about sex and stuff which he says s normal btw sibilings. I dnt know if im just over reacting or something is wrong. I truly believe in God and i pray to my Lord every night begging for his help. I wanna be with my husband bc i love him and i truly believe he loves me too is just that sometimes he … Please can i please get some advice from you maybe there is something i need to do to be a better wife please
