Is It Sex or "Love-Making?"
Why is it that the topic of sex catches almost everyone's attention? Perhaps it's because sex is linked to such a huge bag of emotions... some good and some not-so-good.For many couples, there are very positive associations like emotional and spiritual connection, bliss, deep joy, exclusivity, and physical pleasure. Yet for others, the associations are not so positive. Feelings of shame, anxiety, resentment, and fear (to name a few) can hijack what was intended to be sacred for those who said: "I Do!" Today we discuss perhaps a new way to think about sex in marriage. We also discuss ways to bring new energy to physical intimacy between you and your spouse. Make sure to listen as we answer the question of Is It Sex or "Love-Making?" You may be surprised to hear our answer!This we know for sure... you have the power to write a marriage story full of physical and emotional connection that will bring great joy to the heart! So let's get started!

Navigating Conflict Without Trying to Change Your Spouse
Have you ever tried to address a conflict within your marriage, but resorted to trying desperately to change your spouse? Or perhaps a better question... have you ever felt frustrated, hopeless, or even angry because your spouse won't do or act in a way that seems so right or logical to you?My guess is yes! We have all been guilty of trying to do the impossible... change something about our spouse. Changing our spouse is impossible because it is way above our pay grade.

There is hope for all couples who want peace, joy, and connection in their marriage. Today we discuss how to navigate conflict in your marriage without attempting to do the impossible task of changing your partner, but instead by helping each other become the best versions of yourselves.
