"Putting Fun and Flirty into Your Marriage" ~ New Counseling Office in Utah!
"Getting in Sync Emotionally & Sexually" ~ Only 5 Spots Left!! ~ Project Eternity Conf
by Laura M. Brotherson, Meridian Magazine

A missing ingredient in many couples' lovemaking repertoire is a dash of fun and flirty playfulness. It's almost a mindset you're wanting to develop in your marriage--to naturally think in fun and flirty ways. If teasing, playfulness and fun have not been a focus of your marriage, I encourage you to make it a priority and a personal area of expertise. 

In this article, Laura highlights a portion of Chapter 10 - "TEASING" in her new book Knowing HER Intimately: 12 Keys for Creating a Sextraordinary Marriage.

We are excited to announce that we will be moving to Utah this fall. We will be closer to our kids and family and additional professional opportunities (like maybe teaching a marital sexuality course at BYU!). I will be moving my counseling practice to a new office in Provo. My current local clients will become online clients and my online clients that are close enough may now meet for "in office" sessions.

My new office "The Marital Intimacy
Institute" will now be located at 1875 North 1120 West, Provo, 84604 in the Pinnacle Park Office Complex just off State Street (in the upstairs suite with the entrance on the south side of the building). It will be October before we begin seeing clients there. Clients will be updated as soon as we know details and current information will be available on our website StrengtheningMarriage.com. We'll miss our Idaho family, friends and clients, but look forward to this new adventure. If you have any questions contact my Executive Assistant, Beth.

Couples aren't always good at reading between the lines to "know" and "read" each other well. It's a skill to be able to sense each other's inner state and respond accordingly. In the bedroom, much of the communication is conveyed nonverbally. It is important for couples to be skilled at sending and receiving effective verbal and nonverbal cues in order to tune in to each other well within lovemaking.

In this article, Laura highlights a portion of Chapter 9 - "TUNED-IN" in her new book Knowing HER Intimately: 12 Keys for Creating a Sextraordinary Marriage.
