Sex

What should men do if there wife says tonight or tomorrow for sex and what if it doesn’t happen what should we do

Your Excitement

The podcast is great, good amount of time to get a quick encouragement, and important topics. However, when everyone gets animated about the conversation, interruptions escalate and it’s difficult to hear anything. Thanks!

Worth Your Time

I’ve listened to so many of these podcasts and also the Loving Well Series. They have been such a blessing in my life and relationships! Everyone should listen and apply the concepts talked about in these! They are also fun to listen to!!
