what I want in my future husband...

Hey guys!

So, today I'm kinda updating a post I did a few years ago.

  I just searched on Google "qualities in a future husband".  This is what came up:
make sure he doesn't tell you what you should weigh 
Uhh, does weight even matter?

 Okay, if I were to be pushing 400 lbs or something, I'd guess I would like my husband to be like"Babe....whats going on here???"

My list is a lot different than what most girls my age would look for.  I don't have a certain hair color or eye color that I want in a future husband ( though I am partial to blue eyes and brown hair...:P).  I have a list that;s about what's on the inside.  I know that this may seem super specific to some people. I'm not trying to look for a perfect guy, one who never messes up, and I sure hope my future husband isn't looking for a perfect girl, because I am definitely not.  I'm looking for someone who loves Jesus as much as I do and wants to spend the rest of his life with me.

Here's my list:

what I want in my future husband…
1.       a man who loves and follows Jesus- a God lover
2.       a man who does not have a bad temper.
3.       a man who has a good relationship with his parents.
4.       a man who loves me for me, not just for my outward appearance.
5.       a man who will draw me closer to Jesus.
6.       a man who is funny (:
7.       a man who is outgoing and confident.
8.       a man who is not afraid to admit when he’s wrong.
9.       a man who loves to travel.
10.   a man who does not try to change my convictions.
11.   a man who has the same beliefs.
12.   a man who is tenderhearted.
13.   a man who is understanding. 
14.   a man who is patient.
15.   a man who is strong, not physically, but spiritually.
16.   a man who connects with me, who understands me and my failures and accepts me.
17.   a man who loves children.
18.   a man who loves others.
19.   a man who isn't afraid to show affection. 
20. a man who is chasing after Jesus.

 Now these next few aren't required...but they would be absolutely wonderful (:
            1. a man who loves to be outdoors (to hunt, fish, hike, etc!)
            2. a man who can sing...because I definitely can't!
            3. a man who will dance with me!

Well, that's my list!  I pray for my husband every day- I have been for almost two years now.  I think that it is so important for us girls to pray for our future husbands, and vice versa.  You never know what they may be going through right now, and your prayers will be a blessing on them.  

(again, I'm going to recommend the book "Praying For Your Future Husband" by my forever favorite author Robin Jones Gunn.  It's a must read girls!)



  1. Love the list. Very inspiring!

  2. You and I are very similar in what we would like in husbands. :) Mine has to like horses and dirt and not be bothered by too much chaos. :) I hope you have a good day, been praying for you guys. We are in the process of moving right now so we are quite busy.

  3. Just saw this, love it 😊
