HOW TO BUILD INTIMACY IN YOUR MARRIAGE

HOW TO BUILD INTIMACY IN YOUR MARRIAGE

Friend, I so hope you are aware that Intimacy isn’t just about having sex…. It’s so much more than that. Connecting with your partner on a psychological and emotional level is just as important as being sexually intimate with your partner.

Craig and I have been married since 2004 and have navigated raising kids in a challenging blended family situation.

We’re almost empty nesters and have so much we’d like to share with you about navigating intimacy with your partner.
