My journey started when I bought the empowered wife ebook and as I read the first chapter, tears started streaming down my face. For the first time, I read a relatable book that made me feel empowered to really work on my relationship by being the best version of myself.
What I loved the most about the book was the emotions attached to it and the fact that there was no need for my husband to participate.
For the first time in a while I saw potential for the revival of the marriage of my dreams.
After going to a number of counselling sessions and feeling unheard by Therapists, I discovered that I could change the trajectory of my marriage by practicing the 6 intimacy skills and focusing only on what I can control.
The podcasts are a fave too because of how motivational the testimonies told by the ladies on the channel are.
I thank God for coming across Laura’s teachings!
The Best Relationship Advice of the Week - for FREE!
My marriage was in crisis. I was searching everywhere for help. I tried some weird things - like doing nothing for him at all, never initiating anything (from texts to conversations to intimacy) and flirting with other men - and more mainstream psychological tactics like discussing my concerns and “standing up for myself”. After trying those suggestions for 18 months, my husband finally brought up the big D-word.
In a state of utter panic and dread, I found Laura Doyle’s book - The Empowered Wife - and I started to implement the Six Intimacy Skills. Our relationship made a quick and amazing 180 degree turnaround. The podcasts are a great resource where real women relate their pain and their successes. I was astonished to realize that most marriage problems, no matter how different they seem, respond the same way if the wife practices these skills.
I listen to these podcasts over and over again, and cannot wait for the new one to be published each week. Thank you, Laura!
