3 Insights from 20 Years of Empowering Happy Wives
Over twenty years ago, I was shocked to find out that I could single-handedly make my crumbling marriage thrive using the 6 Intimacy Skills. It was mind-blowing to go from feeling like I’d exhausted every option to try to fix my broken marriage to finding out that I had so much power I could find the switch and just flip it.
I felt a strong desire to share this information with other women, which turned out to be the only way that I could stick to the new practices myself. A lot of women reached out for help, but I didn’t have a team of coaches or any structure at that time. Before long, I got completely overwhelmed, which was terrifying. So, I’m not proud to say, I ran away.
Fortunately, I’ve had a few insights since then.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 3 Insights from 20 Years of Empowering Happy Wives:
- I’ll share why the Intimacy Skills weren’t enough for me and what else you need to make your marriage last.
- My guest Milcah refused to be intimate with her husband, who was cold, critical and so tight with money he would not contribute financially except for rent. She was just waiting for her five kids to grow up so she could file for divorce and get away from him and his parents, who put her down and made fun of her. But today she says she’s married to a cute, generous, loving man who brings her flowers and says wonderful, kind things. Same guy! They love to sit in the garden and talk, and she says the change is unreal. She’s going to describe the steps she took so you can do the same thing.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week is from a well-meaning PhD and professor who explains how to know if you’re falling out of love. Like you need a quiz to tell you that, right? But wait until you hear what he says is a very bad sign.
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.
