The concept of "BFFs" has been around for 1000s of years. If there is a strong friendship between spouses, you can travel any road and overcome any obstacle with God's help.

I’m going to talk to the husbands who are reading this and hopefully speak some truth, in love, to you all.

If you want more s*x and for your wife to initiate, you need to focus on your emotional intimacy! Mind-blowing s*x has both emotional and physical intimacy! 💋

You cannot neglect your emotional connection and assume that she will be begging you to drop your pants every second of the day! She wants to talk to you and validate her feelings. She longs for you to open up emotionally and share your fears, feelings and desires. She wants you to date her… again! She wants you to romance her. She wants you to be her confidant and best friend.

So do whatever you need to do to build your emotional intimacy. If you need ideas, our new webcast gives you 7 very practical ways to build and maintain emotional intimacy.👇🏼

👉🏼 Also, I know I’m stereotyping but know this is the most common scenario with married couples. Women message us every day wanting their man to initiate emotional intimacy. 😉

The work that happens in the home is the best kind of work there is. It is the soul-forming, character forging, gospel-perpetuating work of moment-by-moment discipleship shared between husband and wife, parent and child. If we are to embrace the awesome call that it is to love and lead our young ones toward Christ, we must value the work in the home for what it is: eternal.

Somewhere along the way, as a society we began devaluing the work that happens in the home. Sure, home is the place where we unwind, spend time with family, cook good meals, and enjoy entertainment, but what of the *work* that happens there? And we're not talking about home improvement or chores.

What does this *work* look like? A few ideas:

1. As a person.
For each parent, it is the work of waking up with a life-altering reliance on Christ. Every day brings new opportunities to trust God and turn from our own selfishness and sin. This work is impossible without God's grace and help in the Holy Spirit. Start there, then proceed with joy and peace.

2. As a spouse.
Next to loving God, the best way you can love your child is by loving your spouse. Every marriage takes mindful, diligent work to remain healthy, but the fruit it bears is worth the effort. We've taught on this extensively via @fiercemarriage, but for now, know this: cultivating a healthy marriage is one of the best ways you can love your children well.

3. As a parent.
The parent's work in the home is nonstop: patient explanation, calm correction, persistent discipleship, purpose-filled prioritization, feeding, cleaning, bathing, instructing and so much more... all of which are much simpler if numbers 1 and 2 are in place.

Fierce parent, God equips those he calls and he has called you to the good work of being a parent. Do it boldly, confidently, and with steadfast faithfulness, because your work is eternally valuable.

Stay fierce,
Ryan & Selena

There is a significant drop in satisfaction in a couple’s romance and s*x lives when children arrive on the scene.

However, couples with the most positive families make s*x and romance a priority.

Don’t let kids, money, busyness or anything else rob you of romance. Kids may act like they’re grossed out when parents kiss in front of them, but know that it gives them security.

The only way to make romance a priority is to schedule it on the calendar. Sure, a scheduled date night is not as spontaneous as your romantic activities were before you had children; but if you don’t schedule special times together, they probably won’t happen often enough.

✔️ schedule a date night
✔️ make s*x a priority

Dear parents,

If no one has told you lately, let us remind you:

You are doing a great job!

We know it’s often hard to believe that truth when you are in the midst of laundry piles, dirty dishes, teenage attitudes, dirty diapers, broken relationships, a global pandemic and more.

But it’s TRUE.

Keep showing up.
Keep saying “I love you”.
Keep being you.

God gave those kids to YOU...
He believes in you and so do we!
