Gossip and Its Effects on Marriage
Gossip is self sabotage! There's something called Spontaneous Trait Transference and what it means is this..... when you make negative comments about others, people listening associate those same traits with YOU because the brain is wired to identify you with the comments you make (negative or positive). People logically know you are talking about another person, but the brain forces the listener to perceive YOU as possessing those negative traits you speak of. Is this what you want happening in your marriage? Do you want your spouse to view you the way in which you speak of others?So Mama was right... if you don't have something positive to say, say nothing at all. Join me in this episode to learn how gossip affects your marriage, what to do instead of gossiping, and what to do if your spouse or friends gossip.

Christmas Eve Special - Sofia Cuddeback - Finding Joy at Christmas
It’s difficult for many people to celebrate the holidays while experiencing joy after the loss of a loved one. It’s simply too painful for some people. People say that “time heals all wounds” and that in time you’ll learn how to “move on”. I don’t think it’s a matter of 'moving on’ as much as it is learning how to live life in a different way without the person you miss and are separated from. The void left in our hearts can make holidays really difficult.Sofia Fedoryka Cuddeback is joining me today to talk about celebrating holidays with joy after the loss of a loved one. Sofia’s mother, Irene, passed away exactly 8 years ago today after a long and traumatic battle with breast cancer. The loss of a loved one is never easy - but to experience such loss on a special holiday, like Christmas Eve, could easily make future Christmases especially difficult. But Sofia and her family have found a way to experience joy on Christmas. She’s here to tell us how her family has coped with the loss of their mother, how they continue to experience joy on Christmas, and to bring hope and healing to those who are currently suffering so that you, too, can learn how to love the holidays again.

Do you feel at a loss when it comes to conflict resolution, arguing and how to fight without causing each other pain, destruction, orfurther disconnectionIt’s inevitable - we're human beings - we're going to fight. Sometimes we allow ourselves to become so emotionally invested in aheated argument that it becomes a full-fledged FIGHT... like Holyfield vs Tyson -- (minus the punches and violence) -- but with thesame amount of passion and hostility. Fighting in marriage, although inevitable, can cause great damage if both partners aren't well-schooled in conflict management, selfdiscipline, forgiveness, and compromise. Handling conflict the right way is an art, a skill if you will, and you can learn it at any point in life - if you desire and are willing to put forth the effort learning.Fighting the right way (where you have successful communication with a healthy and productive outcome) involves severalelements.In this episode, I define how to fight right: how to prevent big blow-up fights, how to stay focused on the specific subject of conflict,how to have fruitful conversations, and the benefits of and why you need a post-argument ritual.

Meditation & Marriage
Did you know that one 20-minute meditation is the equivalent of four hours of quality sleep? Or that daily meditation for two months shows great improvement in dura matter quality per brain scans? How about the fact that meditation leads to neuroplasticity; the brain's ability to change (structurally and functionally), allowing it to physically heal and for you to control thoughts, emotions, and behavior? And that meditation actually causes the brain to grow, creating thicker cortical walls which slows the aging process, improves memory, attention, and aids decision making skills? Not a bad way to spend 20 minutes of each day, eh?In this episode, I talk about the benefits of meditation (mental/psychological/emotional, physiological/physical, and spiritual) - think 'mind, body, spirit', the positive impact on self and relationship, why it's beneficial to meditate together as a couple, and I give you my three favorite meditations (two of which are life-changing), and how meditation impacts marriage and long-term relationships.

Dave Lopez - Former Navy SEAL on Men, Masculinity & Marriage
Dave Lopez is a former U.S. Navy SEAL who currently conducts global missions with Operation Underground Railroad, a nonprofit organization comprised of retired special ops guys that rescue children from sexual slavery. Why am I having this man on a marriage podcast? Because he exemplifies true masculinity - NOT because of his big muscles, charming personality or dashing good looks, and NOT because he’s a total badass Navy SEAL, capable of handling the world’s most dangerous situations and people; it’s because he is a complete gentleman, a man of integrity, a man pure of heart, and a man that knows TRUE masculinity, what it means, and how to live it. In this episode, Dave and I talk about men, masculinity, and marriage. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Are you in a sexless marriage? Or do you have infrequent sex (like a few times a year)? Or do you have sex often, but it feels more robotic, routine and mundane? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then I'm betting you may be frustrated in multiple areas of your relationship. Typically speaking, a sexless marriage is a troubled marriage.To restore sexual intimacy within marriage, you must begin by having a holistic understanding of what a sacred, healthy and successful relationship looks like. Sex is a powerful force, a deeply bonding experience, and a sacred sharing of bodies, minds and spirits that is, in great part, the glue of a beautiful spiritual union between partners.In this episode, I define sexuality in marriage, discuss how to approach the issues, the four actions that are hurting your intimacy journey, and the nine steps to restore sexual intimacy. I also discuss medical conditions that dampen or prevent sex and what to do if you cannot experience sexual intimacy within marriage. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
