For Men - How to Write a Love Letter

The LA Times, the paper I hate to love. I have been so close to stopping my subscription over their bias and some of their bad taste, but today they got it right, two times! The first was an article in column one about a new program hitting it big in evangelical churches. Called Letters From Dad, it is a program designed to teach men to write love letters to their wives and daughters.

Most men aren't very good at this, or haven't tried since they were dating. I just might provide a few ideas on this in the next few weeks, but if you want to learn more about the curriculum that is already being offered by the founder of Letters From Dad, you will find all about it here.

The article provided a few good examples, and if you are now or are willing to sign up at the LA Times, you can read the whole thing for yourself. The article, published on Thanksgiving day, starts out this way:

COLUMN ONE
Learning to Write Their Love
# Men in church workshops express themselves, word by painstaking word, in an unlikely medium: the humble letter.

By Stephanie Simon, Times Staff Writer

McKINNEY, Texas — After 26 years of marriage, Charles Batson says his wife means everything to him. He just wishes he knew how to tell her.

"We're always going in a million different directions and when we talk, it's almost like a text message: Hey, I love you. Gotta go." That's not enough, he said. Not for the way he feels.
