"Straight Talk about Strengthening Marriage!"
April 30, 2007 -- Newsletter #26www.StrengtheningMarriage.com
How up-to-date are you and your spouse on what each other is feeling
and thinking? The emotional connection in a marriage is what provides
shelter for couples against the inevitable storms and challenges that life

Read chapter 10 of And They Were Not Ashamed--Strengthening Marriage through Sexual Fulfillment to learn more about increasing emotional intimacy.
