Mentioned in this episode:

Kindred Mom February Series on Loving Well as a Wife and Mom including an essay by Jennifer Van Winkle on intimacy titled Go Get Him, Tiger.

I didn’t think twice about skimping by with occasional time together. My marriage seemed great, and we were happy together. I followed the advice given by the monsters in my head, but I struggled because although my marriage was fine, it was bland. Deep within, I wanted romance and a connection with my spouse that rivaled all love stories ever told. We didn’t have that because I was too afraid to show up as an equal in my marriage.”

Special thanks to the following women for sharing their wisdom about investing in marriage:
