Check out these 9 things wives need to enjoy intimacy.
“Pleasure results from gaining knowledge about the subject of our pleasure, not as we might assume, merely experiencing it over and over. Specifically, our pleasure increases in something when we learn it’s history, origin and deeper nature.”

This year I am planning to finish up some exciting new projects, including the marriage communication course I have been been working on for many months.
I am hoping to launch the online course in Spring. I can’t wait to share all the details!
To finish the course and other projects, I am having to invest more time in the creation and editing processes. That means less time to do my other loves of blogging and weekly emails.
I’ll continue writing and blogging, but my frequency has changed. For now, you’ll likely be hearing from me once or twice a month. (Make sure to follow me on Instagram for weekly encouragement)
Thank you for understanding and happy new year!
