Experiences of women who took the “Toad to Prince” challenge by Dr. Noelle Nelson, author of “Your Man is Wonderful” are good soul mate tips. Today, with permission, I am sharing what first place winner Kelli from Alabama wrote:
“My main focus was to praise and appreciate my mate, and notice all the good things he does. On the first day, I met him when he drove in from work. I said the most ridiculous thing, ‘You sure are good at parking that truck. I don’t think you’ve ever driven on our grass.’ I expected him to laugh and give me that ‘you-gotta-be-kidding,’ look. Instead, he beamed with pride. Later, we were putting away laundry and I looked at the stack of towels, all lop-sided and mismatched, that he had just put away. I said to him, ‘Thanks for folding those towels so nicely. That was a big help! It was unlike me to say that; it even felt awkward just speaking those words. Again, expecting a sarcastic remark in return, I got a kiss and ‘you’re welcome, honey.’…OMG! Sweet! This (contest) has been the most eye-opening experience. I started out believing I was going to change this man’s behavior. Instead, I learned that it was my changing behavior making the difference.
