Behind Our Smiles – Episode 40 – Do You Appreciate Me?

hand holding a heart


Do you feel appreciated? The word appreciation comes from the Latin words “toward” and “price“ and first meant, to estimate the quality of. In more recent times, it means to have a rise in value, or is an expression of favorable estimation. Appreciation is showing our spouse that we think highly of them!

Growing appreciation in our hearts starts when we focus on what God has given us and less on what is owed to us. Then we can learn to show appreciation to our spouse in a way that spurs them on to love and good works! (Hebrews 10:24)
