Java with Juli podcast
Being intentional about the business of marriage builds intimacy. In this episode, Juli talks with Bill & Pam Farrel about their 40-year habit of a weekly marriage meeting. Every Monday they meet, pray, talk about finances, their kids, their priorities for the week—and yes, they schedule sex. Sound unromantic? Perhaps. But they're still married, still in love, and still getting down to business in the bedroom.

Unlike our grandmothers, today’s Christian wives no longer believe that loving and respecting a husband means being essentially mute and supportive. Women have realized the freedom in thinking for themselves and using their gifts, talents, and strengths. Now the problem isn’t a woman finding her voice in marriage, but the tension of using her power in a manner that builds intimacy with her husband rather than destroying it.
In this post, Juli shares five ways to use your power to build intimacy in your marriage instead of tearing it down. Not married? This wisdom relatable and beneficial to any woman in her relationships.
"There is a tension between desperately wanting to build the hero in your husband and being too proud or afraid to trust him. And so, we end up using our power to overpower our husbands." - Dr. Juli Slattery

Many Christians believe that their sexual choices and beliefs are a separate category from their spiritual pursuits. We simply assume that God doesn’t speak into our sexuality – that He allows us to make those choices for ourselves.
This is a destructive lie. In fact, sexuality and spirituality were designed to be inseparable. Our sexual beliefs and behaviors are a reflection of what we truly believe about God. Every sexual question is ultimately a spiritual question.
Engaging in sexual conversations is a necessary part of the Great Commission (making disciples). People need help understanding their sexuality within the context of God’s character and biblical teaching.
