    You Have the Power to Create a Great Marriage

    You Have the Power to Create a Great Marriage

    It’s relatively easy to break a single stick but much harder to break a bundle of them. That’s the concept behind marriage. It’s easier to face things with someone than by yourself. But what if you’re looking at your spouse right now and don’t feel supported? What if you’ve asked them to do something different and nothing changes? You think you’ve tried everything, but you may have been focusing on the wrong person. Psychic Therapist and Spiritual Mentor Vincent Genna shows you how you can create the healthy, loving marriage you want.

    If you’d like to know more about this, contact Lesli.  Share the show with those you love on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

    Is Intimacy a Priority in Your Marriage?

    Is Intimacy a Priority in Your Marriage?

    Intimacy makes me think of old math classes about sets. Sex is often a part of intimacy, but intimacy does not always include sex. This may be confusing to many who think they are one and the same. The desire for intimacy—really being known by another person—is why many of us got married. So why is it often so problematic? Dr. Catherine Aponte, clinical psychologist and the author of A Marriage of Equals: How to Achieve Balance in a Committed Relationship, defines intimacy and reveals how you can create it in your marriage.

    If you yearn for intimacy Lesli can help. Also, please send her your comments and suggestions and share the show on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

     

    Become the Man and Partner You Want to Be

    Become the Man and Partner You Want to Be

    There’s a common belief that women are more interested in the health of their relationships than men are. The problem: it’s not true. Women have been encouraged, sometimes to their detriment, to be in touch with their emotional side. Men—not so much. But most guys want to be good partners and good parents. They’ve just been trying to do it with one hand tied behind their back. Men are half the population and half of the relationships.

    Marriage has evolved as an institution; mostly as a result of women demanding the rules change. This has left a lot of men at a loss for what their role now is. Kerry Lusignan, therapist and Director of the Northampton Center for Couples Therapy, has some great information for specific things men can do to improve their relationships.

    If you’re one of those guys, I invite you to check out The Hero Husband Project. If you’d like to know more, contact Lesli today.

    Marriage Done Right

    Marriage Done Right

    Under non-pandemic circumstances, it’s not unusual to question whether you married the right person. But after being in close quarters for weeks, this idea may be gaining steam. It’s just the wrong question. A good marriage provides a sense of security and happiness. But too many people don’t know the things to do to have the kind of marriage they really want. It’s never too late to learn. And there is no time like the present to get started. Tod Jacob is the co-founder and Director of the David Robinson Institute for Jewish Heritage and Dr. Peter Lynn is the Dean of Students at the Institute. They are also the authors of Not a Partnership: Why We Keep Getting Marriage Wrong & How We Can Get It Right and they are here to share what they have learned about creating a good marriage that lasts.

    If you would like to have a marriage that is a source of security and happiness, Lesli would love to talk with you. Please share the show with those you care about on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

    Connecting Conversations in the Time of COVID and Quarantine

    Connecting Conversations in the Time of COVID and Quarantine

    Do you and your partner have difficulty communicating? Is it harder now you’re stuck together with no end in sight? If you said, “Yes”, you’re not alone. Good communication is a necessary component of a successful relationship. It builds trust and a sense of security between the two of you. Unfortunately, most couples communicate at the surface level. Maybe that’s all you can manage now.

    But, if you only talk to each other in five-minute increments or less, then you are probably feeling disconnected. Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Dr. Marni Feuerman is going to introduce you the 7 conversations you need to be having that will help communicate in a deeper and more productive way, so you can feel intimately connected to your partner. Now is the time.

    If communicating better is something you would like to do, contact Lesli today. If you have friends or loved ones who could use help communicating, share the show with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
