#374: Jackie Hill Perry on the Trustworthiness of God

Your marriage, your sexuality, wounds from your past, or things you can't see yet ... what do you struggle to trust God with?

In this episode, Juli sits down with Jackie Hill Perry for a conversation about how God’s holiness helps us trust Him. You'll hear some of the ways we've misunderstood His holiness and the misleading places we look to for definitions of words like "love" and "goodness," as Jackie shares from her new book, Holier Than Thou. If you’re questioning whether God is knowable, loving, good, or worthy of your trust — grab your Java and join us.

#373: How We Beat a Porn Addiction in Our (Millennial) Marriage

When Clinton and Charity Muñoz sought help to overcome a porn addiction, Clinton was told to memorize more scripture and Charity was told to wear him out sexually ...and things got worse.

Millennial marriages are vulnerable to pornography like no generation before them  — and there is a lot of bad advice out there. But there good news! The Muñoz family, Authentic Intimacy, and many others are learning to have conversations about sexual addiction that not only point people to Jesus, but to the professional help they need as well. In this episode, Juli invites Clinton to share how their new marriage actually triggered his porn use; Charity admits that she couldn’t celebrate Clinton’s small victories early on (and why that’s OK); and together they explain how healing individually, as a couple, and in community were all crucial components to their recovery.

#36: What Kind of Love Are You Making?

If there is one place in the Bible that gives women permission to have fun, to explore and to enjoy sexual pleasure, it’s the poetic Song of Solomon. In this episode, Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow have a candid conversation about why many married women dread sex, yet how the Song of Solomon gives women freedom and permission to say no to sex, to initiate sex, to enjoy sex, and to feel sexy.  Grab your Java and join us!

#372: How To Recognize Domestic Abuse

Wearing sunglasses on rainy days. Using turtlenecks to hide choke marks. Running. Hiding. Ramona Probasco never thought she would do any of these things.

"I never thought it would happen to me. I always thought, 'No way. Not him. Not me. Not us.' I never wanted to call it what it was: abuse."

In this episode, Juli invites Dr. Ramona -- a psychologist and now also a certified domestic abuse counselor to share her story. You'll hear how to distinguish domestic abuse from common conflict in marriage, get a glimpse into the mindset of an abusive spouse, and better understand why finding the right kind of help can be difficult.

#371: Schedule Sex and Dry Cleaning In the Same Conversation? It Works

Being intentional about the business of marriage builds intimacy. When couples make decisions together, their emotions and buy-in follow. In this episode, Juli talks with Bill & Pam Farrel about their 40-year habit of a weekly marriage meeting. Every Monday they meet to pray and 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.

Guests: Bill & Pam Farrel
