I’ll share why the Intimacy Skills weren’t enough for me on today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, where we’re talking about 3 Insights from 20 Years of Empowering Happy Wives.

But today she says she’s married to a cute, generous, loving man who brings her flowers and says wonderful, kind things. Same guy! They love to sit in the garden and talk, and she says the change is unreal. She’s going to describe the steps she took so you can do the same thing.
