Can you relate?

Is your love life mediocre?
Do you and your spouse struggle to talk openly about sex?
Does sex create more conflict than unity? 
Has shame sabotaged your hope for intimacy? 
You're not alone...

Navigating sex in marriage has always been tricky, and research overwhelmingly suggests that the pandemic has further complicated intimacy in marriage. Practically every couple we hear from describes sex, for one reason or another, as a difficult area of marriage.

Maybe you can relate. Perhaps you’ve just decided to settle with being roommates. 

But what if we're asking the wrong questions?

Are we working from the wrong understanding of what a healthy sex life looks like? At “Reclaim: God’s Design for Sex in Marriage,” Dr. Juli Slattery will challenge your framework for understanding God’s design for intimacy in marriage. 

You will learn the difference between having sex and building intimacy. 
You will be challenged to address violations of trust that make sex feel too vulnerable. 
You will be encouraged to pursue intimacy, even through the busy years of parenting and difficult life circumstances. 
You will see the beauty of navigating what seem to be incompatibilities in your sexual relationship.

Learn from Dr. Juli Slattery with guests Dr. Michael Sytsma and Dr. Jennifer Degler as well as personal testimonies from couples who are in the middle of the real-life journey of building intimacy. You do not want to miss this event as we gather with the Authentic Intimacy community in northeast Ohio!
