LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
15 Signs You’re Not Controlling
What happens when 18 women tell the up-close and personal story of how their marriages were struggling in some way, and describe exactly how they stopped controlling to restore the passion and playfulness?
First, you get an inspiring book of best practices for a playful, passionate marriage, which you can then apply to your own relationship.
Second, some other patterns emerge.
Let’s say you’re in the habit of giving your husband “helpful suggestions,” like all of us were.
Or maybe you’re less subtle about it, and you just come right out and tell him what to do, like we also did.
And let’s say that one day you decide to stop controlling…
Here’s what we found out by putting all the first-hand accounts together in the book Surrendered Wives Empowered Women: Inspiring True Stories of Women Who Made Their Relationships Intimate, Passionate and Peaceful Again: As soon as you stop controlling your guy, your relationship gets so much better!
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 15 signs you’re not controlling.
- I’m going to share about the unexpected positive side effects that come from my world-famous system for relinquishing painful control.
- My guest Ann found that fights with her angry, distant husband often landed her crying in the bathroom and left her marriage feeling like a minefield. Her husband didn’t seem to care about her and always wanted sex, resulting in Ann feeling used and unheard. Today, her marriage is filled with peace and passion, and she’s going to tell us exactly what she did to transform it.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week appears respectful on the surface but uses one small word that can spell out big trouble for your marriage.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until 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 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.
