You are both beautiful and broken, all at the same time. How does that make you feel? From what I read in the Bible God is fine with this mix, and He wants us to be fine with it too.

Learn to Love Both the  Beautiful & the Broken

I’m certainly not saying we should stop caring about fixing our broken places. But the reality is we will still have broken places the day we die, and this will be true even if we work as hard as we can and live past 100. 

The other side of this is honestly seeing our beautiful places. God made you a beautiful woman, and there are plenty of wonderful things about you. Don’t let others tell you that you are broken in places that God calls beautiful, and don’t downplay your beautiful places. Embrace both the broken and the beautiful and stop being so hard on yourself.

Of course you husband is also beautiful and broken, and God seems to be okay with that too. How do you deal with that reality? How can you see his beautiful places better? How can you look at his broken places more the way God sees them?

~ Paul – I’m XY and I’m beautiful and broken.

Position: Get What You Need But Offer Variety

December 2, 2016

I recently posted the results of a survey we did on the importance of sex positions. Two of  the top findings were that choice of position is more important to women than men, and men are much more concerned with variety.  There are basic biologic differences behind this. While men can climax in just about […]

Anger: It’s Not Just a Male Thing

November 30, 2016

I regularly talk to the guys over on The Generous Husband about anger, but it’s not just a male problem in marriages; some women have anger issues too. Men usually use anger as a way to hide from thoughts and feelings they don’t want to admit they have. Being angry feels powerful, whereas feeling sad, used, […]

What If You Could Just Start Over?

November 28, 2016

Do you still get hung up on things your husband is no longer doing? Do you avoid doing things you want to do because they caused relation problems with hubby in the past? Does he do the same? Wouldn’t it be great if you could both wipe those things from your memories and start over? […]

Make Room for Holiday Sex This Year

November 25, 2016

Many husbands, possibly most, have come to understand the holiday season as a time of less and poorer sex. The busyness of the season makes it hard to find time, while stress and tiredness make it less than great when it does happen. There are a lot of things I could say about this, but […]

Thanks and Gratitude for a Better Marriage

November 23, 2016

The Bible talks a good deal about gratitude and thankfulness. Makes me think God knew something about brain science long before we did! Even small acts of gratitude have measurable effects on the brain. Practising gratitude regularly changes how we think and feel. It changes how we see ourselves and how we see those around us, […]

Please Stop Believing All the Lies!

November 21, 2016

I’m becoming more and more aware that marriages are being crippled and killed because one or both spouses believes things that aren’t true. When we accept a lie as true it becomes our reality, and that means it shapes what we think, believe, and feel. When we rely on lie based beliefs, thoughts, and feelings to […]

Why Erections Are A Part of Snuggling

November 18, 2016

Ever felt this way? You’re having a nice non-sexual snuggle and then he ruins it by having an erection. Why can’t he just enjoy being close without making it all about sex? Is that all he ever thinks about? Here’s the thing, he loves you. He enjoys you, and he wants you. Being close to you is […]
