Improving your marriage and improving your sex life go hand in hand.

Marriage Handbook

What is Intimacy?

We help couples have better sex.

All marriages face significant challenges.

  • Is being intimate with your spouse challenging?
  • Do you feel like your marriage has ‘lost its spark’?
  • Do you wish you had better sex, more sex, at least some sex?
  • Do you feel too busy, stressed, or overwhelmed to work on your marriage?
  • Have you lost hope?

We know how you feel. You aren’t alone.

We also want you to know that there’s hope. Over 35 years of marriage (including raising nine kids and enjoying life with 14 grandchildren) has taught us a lot!

For over 15 years, we’ve been helping couples rekindle passion, learn to enjoy one another again, improve their sex life, learn the truth about intimacy — and ultimately, improve their marriages.

Thank-you for this opportunity to grow!

We know that working on all 4 areas of intimacy contributes to a better marriage and a better sex life. However, people often get stuck on what we call the ‘intimacy iceberg’.
