Marriage Monday!

Hi everyone, I'm here with another snippet from the seminar we went to in February. So, I really enjoyed Dr. Juli Slattery and I decided to check out her book No More Headaches from the library. It's a great read with plenty of humor and practical suggestions for intimacy as well as addressing some struggles of both men and women. I highly suggest reading it.

Here are some bits that I picked up from the seminar from Juli:

The most powerful relationship is your marriage. There is no boundary in marriage.

*A woman's power- to recognize her husband's greatest need which is to be her hero.
He asks- do you believe in me? Are you there for me?

*A man's power- for the wife to feel safe in his love.
She asks- does my husband love me? Am I safe with him?

He wants to be a leader. Can you help him learn how to lead you?

Mark 10:6-9 "But from the beginning of creation, “God made them male and female.” “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.’ "
