The power of the gospel principles taught in the 12 Steps applies to every one of us and can help us more profoundly come unto Christ. Since we all have unhealthy habits and need help putting off our "natural man" tendencies toward sin, anyone can benefit from more fully trusting in God and turning our lives over to Him to access His enabling, redeeming and strengthening power...

"You Got This!"
Saturday, Mar 23, 2019 - (Salt Lake City, UT)

Women have been mysteries to themselves and their husbands for too long! Join Laura at the upcoming Interfaith Women's Conference as she highlights the 12 T's of female sexuality and why women tend to be four steps away from the feeling of desire. She'll share what is needed to shift from "duty sex" to "I want you" sex and provide simple suggestions for how to create a more connected, passionate and mutually fulfilling intimate relationship - a "sextraordinary marriage!"

We've received nearly 700 responses thus far to our Male Sexuality Survey! How awesome is that! Here are just some of the questions we asked:
  • On average how often are you sexually intimate with your husband/wife?
  • What would be your preference for how many times you are sexually intimate with your husband/wife?
  • On a scale of 0 - 10 how comfortable are you discussing your sexual preferences, fantasies and desires with your spouse?
Survey says?...

What are your thoughts about male sexuality? If you haven't yet taken our survey, there's still time! 

In preparation for Laura M. Brotherson's next book, we've created a Male Sexuality Survey and invite you to tell us what you think! We can't wait to hear what you have to say!!

Couples struggle with some common concepts when they come in for couples counseling. I invariably end up discussing these ideas with clients within the first few sessions of counseling. Because they are so common, I share these concepts here to give couples a head start on helping their marriage become all that they want it to be. You might think of this information as a few free counseling sessions! Save yourself some time and money by reading and applying these concepts.  

Want more free therapy? Many of Laura's clinical handouts and worksheets are now available to anyone on our counseling website - The Marital Intimacy InstituteOn Laura's Resources page, you can browse topics or use the search to find something specific. Just click on the handout image or title link to open the handout in a printable pdf file. You will find handouts on the following topics:
