    Spiritual and Sexual Development + the Power of Lipstick

    Spiritual and Sexual Development + the Power of Lipstick

    It can be extraordinarily difficult to break free from the framing and meanings that we were handed in childhood. It is easy to perpetuate these systems unwittingly as adults because it is what we know--it's the water we are swimming in. 

    The process of waking up to the way we are participating in unhealthy systems requires a lot of self-confrontation, faith, and courage. It means breaking free of the systems we know and taking the more courageous path of offering our partners and children something better than what we received. 

    In this NEW podcast episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife joins Paul Duane of The Soul Anarchist podcast for an engaging and powerful discussion of everything from the evolution of Jennifer's understanding of and relationship to God to the power of lipstick and high-waisted jeans.

    Listen to the full episode to learn more about: 

    * The stages of moral, spiritual, and sexual development

    * Gender role ideology and how it impacts our perception of God 

    * Obedience and integrity 

    * Jennifer's spiritual journey

Now he and Claire are each choosing to lean into the marriage, and both have been delighted with the outcome.

In this follow-up interview, Claire and Phil are wondering how they can bring more real passion into their intimate relationship.

WhoReallyKnowsMe ,

The real Dr. J provides so much information in this podcast. The information is so valuable to both

I love the way Dr. J is upfront and calls it as it is. She is honest and direct. I enjoy her humor and willingness to put her self out their gives me hope. As a man I love her podcasts and have got my wife to follow her also. While her message is primarily for women as a man who has not always been the best husband I celieve her message so very valuable to help me become a better husband and father. I am not trying to be disrespectfuly by calling her Dr. J. The basketbal Dr J. was one of a kind and was loved by all. Just as this Dr. J is a one of kind that uses words to show her majic that brings hope and guidance for all in this very complicated world we live in. Thank you so very much

So interesting!

Everything JFF has to say is so fascinating! It took me awhile before I could embrace this podcast, but now that I have embraced all that she has to say, I am seeing greater purpose and power. I have felt more joy and confidence with my husband sexually. Thank you for the work you do. I would love to go to a retreat one day in the near future!!!
