A Letter to my Future Husband

This was an assignment in my singles bible study so I thought I would share it. For some people this may be a difficult assignment, but writing is how I express myself. I write letters (yes, old fashioned hand-written letters) for the people I care about so this flowed pretty easily. I highly recommend giving this a shot if you are single. If you are married, try writing your husband a letter reminding him why you love him or what you admire about him. 

Dear Future Husband,
I am writing to you because I want you to get to know me… the single me.
I cling to the word of God, it is my anchor. I am not perfect; in fact I am pretty much the opposite. I mess up a lot.  I am a neat freak. I do laundry every two days so that the loads stay small (plus I hate seeing laundry in the dirty clothes basket). I like dogs more than cats. I keep at least two books in my purse at all times. I really don't like being cold. I like to move, and I like to move often. New places are exciting. I am not a very good cook now, but I promise that I will be better by the time we get married.
I am learning about biblical femininity and the roles of husband and wives. I am no Proverbs 31 woman yet but I am a work in progress. I will get there. I honestly never thought I would want a husband. I am not the girl that grew up dreaming of a wedding with a big white dress. I am not that girl that planned on having prince charming. I planned to live life all by myself. But God had something else in mind for me. He has placed the call on my heart to be married and to raise a family with biblical values. 
God has called you to do great things. I will support you 100%. We will not always agree and I will not always understand your line of thought, but I will submit to your authority as the head of our household. I cannot wait to follow God’s plan for my life walking at your side.
I know that you are human and I know that you will make mistakes. I will love you anyways, I promise. 
Know that I am praying for you every day,


  1. That is beautiful. I have also wrote one of these a few weeks ago because I felt God was calling me to intercede for my future husband. Thank you for inspiring me through your blog. God bless you!!

  2. What a beautiful letter! I pray you find the perfect man for you...he will not be perfect, but in love, he will be perfect for you!

  3. I just found your blog through Spiritual Sundays. I applaud you! Stay pure, and God will lead you to him, even though it may seem like a long wait. My daughter has been married 9 years, her friend will be married October 12. She wondered if God would ever send him, but now she is only a few weeks away. I have just begun to blog, and am seeing things I want to include on mine. Gram @

  4. Good for you! Your honesty and openness will make you a great wife. I pray that God will send you a husband soon and that he will be prepared for you and you for him. Blessings to you both!

  5. I think your future husband dozed off after the second paragraph. Lighten up and have fun!

  6. It’s no secret that a man’s ego has a powerful pull on him.

    In fact this hardwired need to impress and to WIN is so deeply embedded into the male mind...

    That nearly everything a man truly desires is based around this biological “drive” to prove, succeed and to win.

    It’s why so many men become workaholics, gym junkies or become obsessed with their hobbies.

    But what most women don’t know... how deeply this “drive” is connected to his love, desire, and attraction for the woman in his life.

    And I’m about to show you how you can “tap into” a man’s ege to refocus that same drive and gut level obsession...

    ...on pleasing you, romancing you, and proving his love for you like you’re his sole purpose in life.

    Here’s how: ==> The “Go Ahead” Signal That Makes Him Obsessed With Winning Your Love

    Mr Gix

    P.S. When you tap into a man’s ego this way, you can cause him to literally become obsessed with proving his love for you. So please don’t use this on a man unless you are ready for something serious.

    Thanks again.
