I've been talking on the blog about the mental load of housework and how it often falls on the wives, even when they are the one who works outside the house. I have also been saying that men can step up more because being a man doesn't make them less capable. Curiously, that sentiment has earned me the title of man-basher from some of my male commenters. So Let's talk about that.Podcast Extras9 Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage
Let's talk about minimum community standards and how they can be used to reduce your mental load and get you and your spouse on the same page in terms of housework!
This month we are doing our series on emotional labour. In keeping with that trend, today's podcast is all about how much of a mental load it is to be solely in charge of housework, and how to find a healthier balance with your spouse.
What are the differences between men and women, and how important are they actually? Have we been focusing on the wrong thing?
So much of the teachings out there for young women is that when they are dating, they must be the gatekeeper and stop physical interactions from reaching their boyfriend's 'point of no return.' Let's talk about how this mentality often ends up holding women back from enjoying sex once they are married.Honeymoon Course
Today we talk about about how to handle being cooped up in the house spending all day every day with your spouse. It's not just something to get through, but something you can even grow to love!

This podcast is quite interesting but I admit I don't fully understand why in 2019 we need to teach women how to be sexy. In our supposed progressive era where everyone is oversexed and under loved and sex is on every TV screen and magazine isn't sad and shocking that it's still a mystery how to be sexy? Now as a Christ follower I'm not nor never would condone the easy goes sleeping around with everyone and anyone attitude of our culture. But it seems that sadly the church has entirely stuck it's head in the sand when it comes to issues of sex. As Christian women this is a gift from our Loving God to us and we alone hold the keys to unwrapping it yet somehow we have shirked our right to crazy amazing sex by either giving it away like a cheap commodity or deceiving ourselves into believing you can't be BOTH pure and virtuous and seriously sexy at the same time which you absolutely can. We have all bought into the cultural lies that in order to be sexy you have to be thin and young and slutty, none of which is true. To be truly sexy you simply need to recognize the precious gift of sex God gave us and realize you are loved, valuable and made in God's image and the world's concepts of sex and sexy are sad and empty and just plain wrong. Let go of your fears and inhibitions with your husband. He is the man God gave you to do life with! So many Christian resources seem to feel the need to tell women how much men need sex and that we need to force ourselves to feel sexy and yet never acknowledge that women are just as sexual as men, but in different ways. So ladies enjoy sex! It's amazing! If you aren't having orgasms speak up. Tell your man what pleases you. Your husband loves you and almost every guy wants to pleasure his woman. Delight in the good gift of your holy sexuality in the bonds of marriage and delight in the pleasure it brings you. It's for you just as much as your husband! The clitoris contains 8,000 nerve endings and is one of the only body parts designed exclusively for pleasure- and God doesn't make mistakes. Skip the PJs and sleep naked. It's more comfortable anyway. Buy and wear lingerie whenever you please, not just special occasions. Make time for pleasure any time day or night and glorify God Song of Solomon style. We can reject the lies of our culture without rejecting the gift.
