First, I need to give a shout out to Jim and Carrie Gordon over at www.the-intimate-couple.com. They recently ran a guest post I wrote on why Nurturing Sex in Your Marriage is So Great for Your Kids. I hope you enjoy it.
I speak with many women who want sexual intimacy to look healthier in their marriages, but they think there will be plenty of time “someday” to actually walk in that direction.
I recognize that there can be a broad spectrum of how healthy or unhealthy a marriage is. And sexual intimacy can be one of the most challenging to nurture. My encouragement is that even little steps to nurture your marriage in general can help lead to conditions for sexual intimacy to be nurtured as well.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wander aimlessly in this pursuit. There are many resources aimed at helping you strengthen your marriage. My advice? Glean from various resources you have found that you respect and trust. No one source is going to have all the answers, and you likely will not agree with everything from one particular author, ministry or resource. This is okay! Glean, glean, glean.
I have some resources listed on my site, but this is just a sampling (I’m always on the look out for more, so if there are great resources you would recommend, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, I give away a FREE MARRIAGE BOOK every month, so don’t miss out on how you can be included in the random drawing.
Remember… little steps can lead to big changes over time. Don’t wait for the elusive “someday” to just show up. Instead, walk in the direction of health.
We never stop learning how to be married. Make it a lifelong pursuit to love well.
