The road to my parents’ cabin is six long miles of gravel, traveled mostly by heavy and speedy logging trucks. The drive on that road seems to go on forever. Even if the logging trucks aren’t barreling toward us, we have to watch out for tall sharp rocks…

Out of the Swamp

Fill your husband's mind with sexy visuals of you.

Eye candy is something that is visually appealing, with just a dollop of sexy thrown into the mix. If your husband is like most guys, seeing you be sexy is the best eye candy possible. Don’t believe me? Let’s take a look at the Song of Songs 4:1-5:
Fill your husband's mind with sexy visuals of you.

Has your heart been transformed when it comes to sexual intimacy?

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26 I’m an advocate for the “fake it until you make it” approach to improving sexual…

What Does a Video Game Show About Marriage Growth?

  I was playing a video game the other day, and I realized that my avatar’s energy level was getting low. Instead of forging ahead into the next quest, I moved slowly, avoiding dangers that might completely deplete me. I continued on my journey and took…

Making Sexual Changes: What Is Your Story?

I hear from many women about how they came to decide to work on sexual intimacy in their marriages. Not a single one has ever said that she woke up one morning and just decided to do it out of the blue. Nor has anyone told me that it was easy. If you are…

Dear friends, A few years ago, I asked for your help in sending me to a conference, and you came through in a way that still humbles me. Now I am asking for your support on an on-going basis to help me encourage women in their marriages. I am also asking…

One of the Bible verses that speaks so deeply to my heart is Psalm 46:10: “Be still, and know that I am God.” Many women stay busy or take on too much, leaving them with little time for rest and relaxation. We put everyone else first and wear ourselves…
