“Dear Future Husband” Part 2

Part 2

Hi everyone!

So last time I brought up the idea of writing a letter to your future husband. You might be thinking, “That sounds great, but really, how am I going to write a letter to someone I can’t see, hear, touch, or feel?” I know, I know the idea sounds a little crazy. :) But, it actually is possible and I can tell you, you’re future husband (or wife) will love that gift of letters written to them before you even met.

So, back to our topic, writing letters to your future husband or wife. The first thing I would suggest you do is buy a notebook or journal to write these letters in. No, I’m not talking about a $1 notebook at Wal-Mart! Although, this is a good start, plan on copying these letters to something nicer later. Another good option is writing these letters online. Personally, I have started a personal blog just for these letters to him. Weather it’s a notebook, a journal, or a blog online your future husband or wife is sure to love them if they come from your heart.

So now you have a place to put these heartfelt letters to your future soul mate. But how do you write them? The answer to this question is not as easy as black and white. I can’t just simply tell you the answer to this question. It takes time, and exploration to find a way that writing these letters works for you. But, here are some friendly suggestions.

1. Write from your heart.  This is key. Write the letter from your heart, and make it personal. Your future husband or bride to be will love something that comes strait from you.

2. Take your time. Don’t rush through writing these letters just because you have chores or school work to do. Take your time and think about what you are saying to them. :)

3. Don’t judge your words. What I mean by this is don’t erase or backspace too much. Trust that what you are saying comes from you. Sometimes erasing too much can cause you to feel frustrated and feel like you are not getting anywhere.

5. Have fun with it! This one is the most important. Just have fun writing these letters that will only be seen by your future husband or wife, and remember they will love them just the same.

            I hope I have you guys somewhere to start with these letters. If you remember to take your time and have fun with it, writing these letters will be easy. :) Also, if you want to ask me any questions, suggestions, prayer requests, or need advice please contact me using my formspring account on the right side of the blog. Have an amazing day, and remember Jesus loves you!


  1. (: I love this. Back when I was having a really rough time in my relationship with God, I began writing Mr. Perfect letters, and it helped me so much. Just to be able to tell him about my dreams, and hopes and what was currently stressing me, I loved it.
    (: And I love knowing that I made something that I'm going to get to share with the one guy that I'm going to get to spend the REST of my life with.
    (: I love it. I love this. (:

  2. Hi Emily! I know what you mean! Sometimes just writing letters to someone who you know you are going to spend the rest of your life with really helps you not only trust God that he has everything under control, but also allows you to get your priorities set a little better. I think that being able to write letter to someone you have not yet met really does help. (: Thanks for sharing with me! :)
