“How do I reconnect with my husband?” That’s a question I get in various forms from so many of you who email. Life has gotten too busy, you feel like you pass like ships in the night, and you just want to feel like you know each other again. #reconnect #connectioninmarriage #communication #communicationinmarriage #emotionalmaturity #emotionalhealth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #christianmarriage #eqaulityinmarriage #tolovehonorandvacuum

Men are emotional beings–whether we think that or not. Keith here with this month’s installment of Men’s Corner. I think many people of both genders tend to write men off in this area and unjustly so. It seems to me that it is generally assumed by many that women are by nature more “emotionally intelligent” than men. #emotionalmaturity #emotionalhealth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #christianmarriage #eqaulityinmarriage #tolovehonorandvacuum

Looking back on 2020 is humbling. It’s been a tough year with COVID and plans crumbling and retreating into small bubbles, but on the other hand I’ve also written two books, created The Orgasm Course, and gotten so much done because I haven’t been speaking! But on a personal level, we feel as if this has been the Year of Feeling Homeless. #podcast #church #christianity #christianmarriage #christianfamilies #2020 #tolovehonorandvacuum

What happens when the church, which is supposed to be your safe haven, becomes the place where you are abused? The #MeToo Reckoning looks at how the church has often been complicit in covering up sexual abuse in churches, or has actually enabled sexual abuse by some of the ways that it talks about authority, gender, and sex. #metoointhechurch #abuseinthechurch #podcast #abuse #abusevictims #metoo #tolovehonorandvacuum

Have you ever experienced stonewalling in your marriage? If you’ve ever said something like, “He refuses to talk about it,” “every time I bring it up he shuts me down,” “She walks out of the room if I mention it.” John Gottman, from the Gottman Marriage Institute, calls “stonewalling” one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, meaning one of the four behaviours that wrecks marriages. #stonewallinginmarriage #healthymarriages #emotionalmaturity #happymarriage #communication…

It’s time for a resource list of books to help you grow more emotionally mature! I know that we’ve got so many resources other than just books, and so I’ll give some suggestions on how to identify healthy resources online as well. #emotionalmaturity #resourcelist #personalgrowth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #tolovehonorandvacuum

This week the world watched as America went crazy. It actually broke my heart to see the nation that has been the shining light of democracy the world around have insurrectionists attempt a coup. I have had the privilege of visiting so many moving American monuments about freedom and democracy; I mourned on Wednesday to see what was happening. #godlovesyou #2021 #messyworld #godisbigger #tolovehonorandvacuum

I am very, very tired of the “don’t be a stumbling block” argument when it comes to modesty for girls. I know that this is a very widespread debate, and I have talked about it before in two main posts: My 40% Modesty Rule Why Don’t Be a Stumbling Block is a Really Bad Modesty Message #raisingkidswithoutshame #christianparenting #postitiveparenting #youthgroup #endthemodestydebate #modesty #tolovehonorandvacuum

Growing in emotional maturity is largely about being able to comfortably go to deeper levels of communication. #communication #communicationinmarriage #emotionalmaturity #emotionalhealth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #christianmarriage #eqaulityinmarriage #tolovehonorandvacuum

A few weeks ago I deleted a podcast I did for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. But in telling the story, I ended up muddying the waters. I told it wrong, and people felt that I was the one primarily at fault. Rebecca and I revisited it–not to tell the story again (I’m really never touching that one again!), but instead to raise some bigger issues about what the whole thing taught us about the difficulty in talking about these issues. #podcast #abuse #abusevictims #metoo…

My big prayer, the thing that motivates everything I do online, is “how do I help people grow emotionally healthy marriages that reflect God’s kingdom?” That’s been my aim for years, actually. But one thing that I’ve realized in the last two years is that you can’t build something healthy and strong on a faulty foundation. #rebuild #strongfoundation #communication #communicationinmarriage #emotionalmaturity #emotionalhealth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #tolovehonorandvacuum

We’ve been talking a lot on the blog about emotional maturity and its importance. And part of that is the whole “God language” issue. #emotionalmaturity #emotionalhealth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #christianmarriage #eqaulityinmarriage #tolovehonorandvacuum

Christian books ask far more of women than they do of men. We learned that pretty quickly when we read the top 15 bestselling Christian sex & marriage books for our upcoming book The Great Sex Rescue. But what they’re really doing is assuming that men can never be emotionally mature. #emotionalmaturity #emotionalhealth #happymarriage #healthyrelationships #christianmarriage #eqaulityinmarriage #tolovehonorandvacuum
