Have you ever written your wife a love letter? Every man should be able to write a love letter to his wife. In this week's interview and in preparation for Valentine's Day, Jim Ramos' friend Kevin Brewer joined him to teach you how to write a letter or note that your wife will treasure forever, even if you're not a writer. 
Step 1: Make a list.
Jot down and start making a list :
1. Start with showing you’re thinking of her. Can be basic stuff and could include physical attraction.
2. 1 or 2 things your wife does that you’re proud of.
3. How has God used her in your life (bonus if you include Scripture)
4. Her character traits or qualities as a women 
5. Past memories, current situation and what you see in future.
Step 2: Take a break.
Take a break - be fresh. Walk away to process.
Step 3: Write your letter.
Come back - Sit down and start putting together the letter. Try using a nice piece of paper.
“Write a love letter without using the word love.” Find other words the explain your feelings - "love" can be overused. Put anything down. It doesn’t have to be deep, just something to trigger emotion and feeling. It doesn’t have to be long. The main thing is to show you’re thinking of her. Even if you’re not a writer - that’s to your advantage because it shows your sacrifice.
