    #386: What's the Secret To Getting the Marriage & Intimacy You Want? Go Vertical

    He never saw it coming. It was the night of Dave and Ann's tenth wedding anniversary and if asked how their marriage was doing, Dave would have given them a 9.8 /10. But instead of a celebratory kiss, Ann whispered, "I don’t have any feelings left for you.”
    In this episode, Juli talks with Dave and Ann Wilson about how Ann’s efforts to "help" her husband only served to undermine the very connection she was trying to create.

    #385: How To Wrestle With God Over Questions of Sex & Sexuality

    #385: How To Wrestle With God Over Questions of Sex & Sexuality

    Juli and Hannah discuss the pain caused by misapplied Christian teaching and when we don't allow others to wrestle with sexual pain and brokenness.
    Come deconstruct with us for 40 minutes or so. Yep, that's right. If we can’t ask hard questions about the principles we’ve shared in the last two episodes, then we’re only representing the truth of God and not the heart of God, which is to invite you to wrestle with His word and with Him until you’re satisfied—and He is the only One who can satisfy.

Life Changing

Juli Slattery has simply changed my life. Her wise words and gentle demeanor held my hand through a tough season. On the other side, I consider Juli a personal mentor though she doesn’t know me. She has challenged me, comforted me, she is consistent in ministering. She is open minded and yet unwavering in truth. And at the end of it all, it’s truly Christ through her. She allows Him to work on her and through her. Her books, Bible studies, blogs, and of course her podcast are at the top of my recommendation list.
