Hi! I'm Laura.

I was great wife material until, well, I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me had returned.

I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.

How Your Parents Set You up to Get Divorced

Your divorce might not be all your fault. Perhaps your parents’ played a role. They were probably terrible role models. Chances are high that they were either 1) divorced, 2) never married or 3) that they’re still married — but not in a way that anybody would want to emulate. There was no Relationships 101 at the schools they sent you to. Where were you supposed to learn how to have a good marriage — from watching Mike and Molly?

6 Steps for Women on How to Stop a Divorce

How To Stop Divorce

Divorce is like tooth decay: totally preventable for a woman with the right skills and habits. Unfortunately most women didn’t have good relationship role-models. We are largely the product of single parents, broken homes or marriages that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy — the equivalent of learning oral care from parents with false teeth.

We aren’t born with the skills to foster intimacy, passion and peace anymore than we’re born with a Sonicare and good flossing habits. Fortunately, any woman can learn intimacy skills and use them to create trust, tenderness and connection.

Here are the six proven intimacy skills your mother never taught you that lead to satisfying, lifelong love:

Just Because I’m Feminine Doesn’t Mean I’m Not A Feminist

How Can a Feminist Surrender?

By Valorie Ness

You know what is the absolute worst? Remembering times when you were insufferable, pompous, belligerent and wrong, but too stubborn to admit it. I was often that person.

A few years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and silently went off the deep end. To say I was unpleasant would be an understatement. I began drinking even more heavily, which is really bad to do with Crohn’s. My liver was a mess as well, and getting worse. So I quit drinking, and I quit smoking cigarettes. And on the 15th of every month I started giving up another food that made me feel ill. My body started slowly feeling better.

My brain, however, became my enemy. All it saw was what it was missing and letting go of. I found myself with all these 5-10 minute holes to fill. And I did. I filled them with complaints, anger, loneliness. My man tried to comfort me. Small gestures, big gestures. And I appreciated them, truly I did. But what came out of my mouth was something like, “Oh roses are nice, but I like lilies better.” So I went online to look up ways to discipline myself to think before I speak, to be more productive and positive. That’s where I found The Surrendered Wife.

Why My Wife’s Approach to Relationships is Better Than Marriage Counseling by John Doyle

When Laura and I first met, she was a 21-year old journalism student at San Jose State University. She had just gone to an event downtown and was dressed to the nines. Having just gotten back from the beach, I was gross and sandy. I had parked my pickup truck and was walking toward my front door and she was standing on her front porch.

Laura was the proverbial “girl next door.” Her apartment shared a wall with mine, and many times I could hear her talking on the phone or to her roommate, laughing at something. So even before I met her, I knew she loved to laugh.

In our conversation, I told her I liked to play guitar and participate in amateur theater plays. Now if you ask Laura, this is where the story diverges. Laura says that she said “I’d like to go to a play sometime.” My recollection is that Laura looked up to the sky and said “I wish someone would take me to a play.” I felt that the ball was in my court and I asked her out right then and there.

Perhaps there is a key to Laura’s philosophy from her book, First The Empowered Wife: Modern Day Secrets to Becoming Desired, Cherished and Adored by a Man in that exchange. Laura was expressing her desire to go to a play in the near future. She didn’t say “we should go to a play” or “you should take me to a play.” She said “I’d like to go to a play sometime.” However I heard or interpreted the words, they instilled in me a sense of urgency to ask her on a date.

Self-Care Activities & Why They’re So Essential

Why Self-Care is So Essential

by Laura Doyle

Whenever a women tells me that she’s having a lot of arguments in her relationship, one of the very first things I ask her is, “How’s your self-care?” Most of the time the response is that she hasn’t had the time to do much for her own enjoyment lately. That happens to all of us sometimes, but since self-care activities are such a vital part of keeping your relationship healthy and happy that’s the first thing I ask when peace in a relationship is missing. Self-care is perhaps the most important Intimacy Skill™ of all.

You may be wondering what the connection is between self-care and a happier relationship. Often when I’m short with my husband, what’s really going on is that I’m hungry, or tired, or have too much on my plate, or I just haven’t had any fun in a while. There’s a direct correlation between my self-care activities and my level of tolerance for my husband.

Manifested Desire to Marry By Cheryl Johnson

2014-12-17 21.19.54_resized

Three years and two dismal divorces ago, I finally met the man of my dreams! Mike and I get along great, make each other laugh, thoroughly enjoy each other’s company, and my friends and family always comment on how happy we look. Nothing was really wrong with our relationship, and we could’ve continued this way, except my friend recommended a book titled The Surrendered Wife by Laura Doyle.

Even though everything was fine with Mike and I, this book started to change the way I thought about things–things like intimacy and vulnerability, being respectful and grateful, taking care of myself, and being more feminine at home compared to when I’m at work. One of the biggest benefits I received from practicing Laura’s Intimacy Skills™ is that I learned how to express myself to Mike without being attached to the outcome, or making him wrong for not doing what I thought he should do.

How to Stop Being Controlling in a Relationship

How to Stop Being Controlling

The “I Was Just Trying To Help” Syndrome

For a lot of us women, when it comes to our husbands, we have an unconscious refrain jingling in our heads that goes like this: “I know better than he does—I will help him do it right.” With this background music, we quickly develop an air of superiority. We feel qualified to instruct our husbands on how to vacuum the carpet, talk to the children, and negotiate with his colleagues. All the while we tell ourselves that we are simply helping.

For years I truly believed if I could just get my husband to be tidier, more romantic, and more considerate everything would be fine. I told him as much, and while that didn’t improve things at all, it did create wall-to-wall hostility and tension in our home.

The Power Of Expressing Gratitude in Relationships

Expressing Gratitude

Experience The Power of Gratitude

Expressing gratitude in relationships is one of my favorite Intimacy Skills because it has so much power to change my life for the better. When I express gratitude, weather it’s toward my man or my life in general, my focus begins to shift dramatically. When I take time to look around at what I have, where I am, and who my husband is for me, my life seems instantly better. That’s the power of gratitude.

Expressing gratitude is one of the first skills we work on in my Coach Training Program, and for good reason. When you begin shifting your focus from what’s not working to what is working, what we don’t have enough of to what we have in abundance, you start to feel differently about those things. You begin to see things differently. An attitude of gratitude is empowering because it has you take stock of your life by focusing on the things that are good in your life, which makes those things increase. Gratitude has magical properties because it can turn an ordinary meal into a feast. And when you add gratitude to your relationship, your husband becomes your hero.

A Modern Approach To Surrendering By Leticia Vasquez

Leticia-Vasquez-CoachA book called “The Surrendered Wife”? With a drawing of a woman in a bubble bath? No thank you.

At least that’s what I thought to myself a few years ago, as I browsed relationship books on Amazon.com, desperately trying to keep my end of the bargain my husband and I had entered into a few months before. That bargain came on the heels of an emotional re-commitment to one another after a few years of highs and lows. With two toddlers in tow, I had come to a point where I looked at my husband and wondered where the warm, romantic and loving man I had met 15 years before had gone. I saw this warmth from him with the people I loved, so I knew it was there…which was somewhat painful, but it also gave me a glimpse of hope.

I had read several academic-type books that appealed to the clever girl in me. And they were great in offering me a lot of theory, but offered no practical steps, which was what I really needed. Yet, something kept pulling me back to Laura Doyle’s book with the hideous title that went against everything I had been raised to be! I fought it; I talked myself out of it many times, thinking, there’s just no way! And still I went back, browsed the book again, then read the comments and was piqued. Then, I very quietly bought it.
