This past week my sweet father-in-law was reunited with his sweet wife. She passed away a year ago. At a time like this many thoughts go through your head.

It was such a pleasure to interview Shaunti Feldhahn. I hope you will enjoy learning from her as much as I did! When I discovered her book For Women Only, I found a treasure. Every woman needs to read this book! Her research is phenomenal.

21: Good marriage? | Why You Should Keep Working On It!

First, we should never wait for our marriage to start struggling before we start to work on it! And I don't believe we can afford to just wing it anymore. Most of us weren't taught all we needed to know when we said yes to this union. We need tools and skills to maneuver through this messy thing called marriage and life. It is really quite amazing how simple new knowledge can enhance our lives. It doesn't take that much time, but it does take us choosing to be intentional.

15: Laura M Brotherson | Sex-Vital For a Healthy Marriage:P2

I continue my conversation with Laura M. Brotherson LMFT, CST, on intimacy in marriage. I am so grateful for her work. Our conversation is very open and is not meant for younger ears. Laura talks about that marriage is all about self-development. None of us were taught everything we needed to know to have a successful marriage. Intimacy is part of that development. We also discuss the importance of educating our children and our young adults who are getting married. Let's teach our kids and...

I learned so much from interviewing Laura M. Brotherson LMFT, CST. I love her energy and determination to educate women about intimacy in marriage and the importance of embracing our sexual being.

13: Becoming a Whole Woman | Connecting to Your Sexual Being

Sexual intimacy is a big part of marriage, but very few of us are set up for success in this area. We often struggle to talk about the positive aspects of sex. Did you know that we all are sexual beings? This is not a negative or bad thing. But because society has perverted what sex really is, we struggle to find a healthy balance. It is imperative for women to learn and understand that they are a sexual being and God made them that way. We are meant as husband and wife to enjoy intimacy...


12: Female Exec Bank VP | The Power in Being True to Yourself

I was interested in Crystal's story when I heard as she worked her way up in the cooperate world, she started out thinking she needed to be someone other than her authentic self. Being in the banking world she felt she needed to come across more masculine in her dress and interactions. As she progressed in her career and became a mom she recognized the power in being true to herself. I believe this is a powerful lesson for women to learn. I do connect it to the feminine power we have within...

We each have our individual blueprints. These are created from our upbringing and our social circumstances. Learning about your blueprints and discovering your attachment style allows you to change behaviors instead of being a victim to your blueprint. We can actually alter them to help us be a healthier version of ourselves! It is empowering! Cognitive Cycles has been a life changing exercise for me. I am so grateful to Dr. Slade for being willing to step us through this process. Denim L...


9: Consistency | The #1 Challenge of Being Human

If you have ever struggled with being consistent, don't worry you are human. Human nature is to be complacent. So you are fighting against your own DNA. Most of us have very good intentions, but unfortunately, intentions are not enough to create being intentional. Hopefully my podcast today will inspire you to be kind to yourself during self-growth, and also encourage you to move forward with intention by being intentional. This is how you will increase the happiness in your life.

7: Love | Creating That In-Love Feeling

Everyone can fall in-Love but staying in-love is created. I can't tell you how often I hear individuals say, "we just don't love each other anymore, we've fallen out of love." Or "I love my spouse but I am not in-love with them." It is so important to understand longterm love. We are wrong to think that after the I do's it should just naturally happen like the falling-in-love part did. We have to be open and talk about this, so more married couples will choose to fight for and create that...
