How can I teach my Christian wife with love about how not to worry?

I teach her the securities we Have in Christ, always reminding her that there are no problems our faithful creator cannot guide us through, all the "lilies of the field" verses, and yet there is no peace in her heart. She worries to the point that some in the world might call her obsessive.

How can a man teach his wife not to worry? That's impossible!

As a husband, your role is not to teach, but to comfort, calm her down, assure her that you will always be by her side. You are her anchor, her shelter, her protector. Problems will come and more will follow, but you are there to hold her hand and hug her when it gets too stressful. It is okay to worry.

You cannot teach her to stop worrying. She will stop worrying on her own.
