Have you ever turned to Netflix instead of pursuing sex with your spouse? Have you turned to Instagram instead ending your day by talking with God and learning His voice? Your sex life and your spiritual life have more in common than you think! In this episode, Juli talks with Mo (Isom) Aiken about the parallels between our spirituality and our sexuality, and our human inclination to settle for counterfeit versus authentic intimacy.
What is emotional safety? Look at it this way: an emotionally unsafe relationship is a place where you can’t be yourself. You’re walking on eggshells. You can’t share your emotions because when you do, they’re going to set off an explosive or guilt-inducing response from the friend, parent, spouse, or boss you’re talking to. In this episode, Dr. Joshua Straub shares what makes you an emotionally safe person. Are you willing to press into and sit with the emotions of another person, even when it’s uncomfortable? It takes work, but the payoff is authentic intimacy. Grab your Java and join us!
