A "Creeping Separateness"

ave you been married for awhile? After years of living together, it's not unusual for a "creeping separateness" to subtly intrude into your commitment to each other.

Why are you surprised? The relentless 24/7 demands of childcare. Work schedules that collide. Intrusive relatives or friends. The growing stack of unpaid bills. Urgent health issues. Ongoing church activities that demand attendance. Varying interests. Unexpected choices. Annoying habits. Questionable preferences.

And then there are all those disappointments, great and small, that gathered along the way that were never fully addressed.
Without purposeful focus and attention, a wall gets built, brick by brick. You don't even know it's happening. Or maybe you do, but you don't care all that much anymore. The energy your marriage requires imperceptibly erodes, slowly but surely.
The result? Your love, commitment, and passion slip silently away. And you begin to look for affirmation and companionship elsewhere.

Wake up! And read on to discover how to embrace your differences, build intimacy (it's not all about sex), and enthusiastically invest in the life-long commitment that you made way back when ...

Re-Focus. Re-Calibrate. Re-Commit. Today.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
