Why we are doing a show like today is beyond me!  Because I know at first, you’re going to be thinking to yourself, “How is this going to help me? I’m not a pastor or a leader at a church.”  Well my listening friends, all that needs to change today.  Because you need to know what an effective church marriage strategy looks like so you can begin harassing your church leadership to implement it.  But it can also help your relationship specifically, if you’re willing to do the same things for your own marriage.

What's healthy when it comes to sexual intimacy in marriage? This episode is definitely not for little ears, a warning to those parents who might not want their kids to hear an honest and frank discussion about sex. I've got Dave Willis on the show and we don't shy away from anything when discussion sexual intimacy.

I am the survivor of a vicious lion attack.  It happened this past June, and it may be the reason our family is closer than ever.  What is the secret to a close-knit family?  Unfortunately, many times the answer is painful, scary, frustrating, or humiliating…but we’ll give you the answer coming up next. SHOW NOTES This is one of the great legacies my father left me after he graduated to heaven. The secret to a close-knit family is… Trauma, camping, accidents, basically…when things go wrong. Families who play together stay together. But much of the bonding depends on how your family handles the hard times.

But now, you really do need to be like a hero Celebrate, but don’t settle You must become a lifelong learner You need to keep discovering and becoming a PhD of your wife What do you do daily Every day you need to wake up, and first thing in the morning pray: Dear Father, I come to you today, just as I am. I give you all my strengths and weaknesses, vices and virtues, hopes and fears, successes and failures, faith and doubt. I cast all my fear and anxiety and insecurity upon you, trusting that you will do your part, trusting that you will show me what my part is (if any), and trusting that all things will work together for good – because I love you, and because I am called according to your purpose. I receive your mercy, grace, and love into my life. Please help me to extend it to myself and others as well. Please give me the wisdom to know your will for me, the willingness to accept it, and the courage and strength to do it. I need your help in each of these ways, for I can not do any of them on my own. Give me what I need for today – physically, spiritually, and emotionally. No more. No less. May I live today with a heightened sense of your presence. May I catch glimpses of the eternal in all things. May I be aware of, and listen to, the promptings of your Holy Spirit. I place my life completely and unreservedly in your hands, and trust that you will not let anything happen to me outside of your will for me. I ask these things in the name and the power and the authority of Jesus Christ, my savior and friend.

It’s the eighth show of our series, The Hero’s Guide to Winning Back Your Wife.  Sometimes, the hero’s journey doesn’t have a hollywood ending.  It can be more like the ending of Cold Mountain with Jude Law and Nicole Kidman.  This movie came out in 2003 and I’m still angry and distraught about how it ended.  You don’t want to hear today’s show, I know this, but you need to listen because what do you do if she doesn’t come back?

(CLICK HERE) SHOW NOTES If you want to listen to all the episodes in this series, just click here. What if she doesn’t come back You need to hear this because, unfortunately, it is a possibility. Sticking your head in the sand won’t make it better First, realize you have no control over whether or not you win back your wife.  That is in God’s hands. If you “demand” that she comes back, it may be why you lost her If your heart and attitude during this hero’s journey is that you have to have her come back…then you have possibly sabotaged winning her back. The goal can’t be to win her back, the goal must be to honor and value her no matter what…especially if she doesn’t do the right thing Why didn’t she come back? Is it your fault? Maybe and maybe not. She could be dealing with unforgiveness and bitterness So keep praying for her and doing the right thing regardless It could be that she felt your demand that she come back. Maybe the damage caused was too much to reconcile.   But if you have children, you still have to figure out how to honor and value her for the sake of the children. So now what? For the love of all things holy, please don’t rush into another relationship. Keep loving her unconditionally, you simply never know how God might change her heart. Keep your heart open to the possibility of her coming back. Pray with a group of mature Christian men about the timing of possibly dating again. A hero’s actions Actively keep your heart open by constantly forgiving her and praying for her. Self-care, self-care, and some more self-care.  What can you do to rejuvenate your heart?
