Intimacy with your spouse is important is all phases of life--even when you're celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary! Many aspects of our relationships change as we get older, but don't assume you have to stop having sex or physical intimacy together. In this episode, Dr. Gary Chapman and Linda Dillow join Juli to discuss how the dynamics of sexual intimacy change as we age.
Did you know that 68% of Christian men struggle with unwanted sexual behavior? That 25% of Christian women use sex to hide a deeper issue that they’re struggling with? We tend to believe that, if we really love Jesus, we won’t struggle with sex. Juli’s guest today, Nick Stumbo, struggled with pornography while serving as a pastor. Join them for a conversation about overcoming addiction, the flawed thinking that good Christians don’t fall into sexual sin, and why sexual discipleship® is so important!
Marriage can be hard, but it doesn’t have to stop being fun! Arguments, grief, or even just the busyness of life can make you forget that, at one time, you really enjoyed being with your spouse. Join us for a conversation about how we sometimes make marriage harder than it has to be, how to connect with a spouse who struggles to talk about your marriage, and how churches can make marriage ministry, well, a little less feminine.
In this episode, Juli continues her conversation with Laurence Koo. Join them as they discuss the tension created when so much of our identity gets wrapped up in our sexuality. They'll talk about how to walk with others in this tension, how to love and engage with your child who is same-sex attracted, and how the life of a single Christian following Jesus is rich in intimacy, relationships, and service.
Many gay Christians feel they must either deny their sexual feelings in order to be accepted by God or embrace the idea that God accepts them--just as they are. For most, neither of these options bring complete freedom or satisfaction. Is there a better way? In this episode, Juli's guest Laurence Koo shares how he wrestled with God over his unwanted same-sex attraction, and how he found freedom to follow Jesus completely --fully accepted and loved, same-sex desires and all.
