Check it out! Marriage coaches, Aaron and April Jacob from Nurturing Marriage share their thoughts about Laura's book Knowing HER Intimately: 12 Keys for Creating a Sextraordinary Marriage:

"Men, get this book!!! Women, get this book and understand yourself better! . . . The beauty of this book is that it reminds couples that sexual intimacy is so much more than just the act of sex. This book helps couples learn about and create true connection, intimacy, and love - a beautiful kind of love. For the couple who is struggling in the bedroom or the couple who feels like things are great, do yourself a favor and get this book!! Every couple will benefit from the knowledge, insight, and invitation to apply these practices to their marriages."
~ Aaron & April Jacob, NurturingMarriage.org

This spiritual surrender process can help you make peace with people or circumstances you can't change, make peace with trials you are having, or compulsive behaviors in yourself over which you feel powerless. It's how you can be okay when you're not okay. The steps include:
  1. Identify your sphere of control
  2. Make friends with your worst-case scenario
  3. Let go of attachment
  4. Grieve the loss
  5. Accept and trust God (His will and timing)
  6. Believe
  7. Formally surrender to God
