    37 - Love Languages, Exodus 90, and Mentionables | Kathleen's NFP Journey

    We're back with another NFP journey episode. This week Kathleen shares with us her journey. This episode follows up very nicely to the previous two episode about abstinence. Kathleen and her husband were both on different sides of the spectrum of abstinence and it took good, deep, and difficult communication to get on the same page. Be sure to check out both the "When Abstinence is Really Hard" and "When Abstinence isn't as Hard" episodes!

    36 - When Abstinence Isn't As Hard

    36 - When Abstinence Isn't As Hard

    Check out last week's episode for the first installment in this series when we talked about when abstinence is really hard. This episode is focused on when abstinence isn't as hard! Spoiler alert: If you find yourself in either situation at any point in your marriage, that's OK! You're normal. The most important thing you can do is communicate with your spouse how you are feeling.
