Thinking about attending Laura's upcoming "Sexual Wholeness Workshop for Women?" Here's what people have to say about her presentations:

"Laura has an amazing ability to connect with you as if you were with a trusted friend visiting one-on-one, regardless of the size of the group. She has a dynamic energy that immediately disarms the typical feelings of embarrassment, shame and discomfort surrounding sexuality. For years I have appreciated the way that Laura organizes information in her books, balancing the academic, spiritual, practical and fun. To see her present is a real treat as you get to witness first hand her enthusiasm and passion for sexual health and wellness."

by Laura M. Brotherson, LMFT, CST

The wait is over for a "marriage-prep" guide that effectively helps couples learn what they specifically need to know and do to prepare for the honeymoon and the intimate marital relationship. From Honeymoon to Happily Ever After  respectfully provides enlightening and encouraging counsel with practical suggestions to help couples feel informed, prepared, and confident as they embark upon the intimate adventure of preparing for and creating their own sextraordinary marriage. 

No time to read? Let Laura read it to you as you go about your day! From Honeymoon to Happily Ever After: 23 Keys to Prepare for a Sextraordinary Marriage audio book is now available on AmazonAudible (where you can get a new audio book each month at a fabulously discounted rate) and at DeseretBook.com! You can also download the eBook at Amazon or DeseretBook.com!

"I wish this book was available for me as I prepared for my own marriage, but am so glad to have it now as so much of what is shared applies throughout all of marriage! I love that From Honeymoon to Happily Ever After sheds light on how sexual intimacy is of God, dispelling many of the fears and anxiety surrounding the sacred act of love."

We're thrilled to share this new book by one of our very own therapists at The Marital Intimacy Institute.

Latter-day Saints are great at getting things done. But for some, an over-emphasis on "doing" can cause us to go through the motions and miss the deep, rich spiritual power that can come from being still. Sometimes, we try to dig ourselves out of feeling spiritually drained by doing more. When that doesn't work, we can feel stuck. There is a way to reignite our spirituality by approaching it from a more "mindful" place. Check out this book on Amazon or Deseret Book!

Laura has been a writer for Meridian Magazine since 2005! They have published over 70 of Laura's articles--mostly on marital intimacy issues. What an honor it is to be one of their popular authors and to have such an incredible forum to be able to address the topic of sex and to help strengthen marriages intimately! If you also appreciate the incredible work they do to bring light to the world (especially on the topic of sex!) join me in contributing to their annual subscription drive!

Happy 2020! With the New Year often comes a desire to create healthier habits. To support you in your efforts, this is an excellent tool to help you reflect on what areas of personal health you are excelling in and what areas may need some additional focus.
