I had a dad tell me the other day that his kids were ruining his life. He said it with a grin so I knew that he was only half kidding.
I then asked him if he agreed with Psalm 127:3,
Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.
“Yes”, he said. “It just seems like the reward of children is overwhelming most of the time!”
Do you feel like that? Overwhelmed with the kids, frantic when you get to work and then it seems like you aren’t able to get anything done because your mind is on the kids? Then you rush home to drive the kids all around the city because of their extra curricular activities, and by the time everyone finally gets home for the day it’s 9pm. Needless to say that everyone is hungry, grumpy and tired. Oh, and this is the first time you’ve seen your spouse all day…and he just happens to have that “lovin’ feeling” in the twinkle of his eye.
So, how do you pursue sex with your spouse after having kids? What does sexual intimacy look like during this season of your life? We wrap up our conversation with Karis Kimmel Murray today discussing her new book Grace Based Discipline: How To Be At Your Best When Your Kids Are At Their Worst.
In today’s podcast, We’ll discuss three things:
- How sex with your spouse is the culmination of everything else in your life. In other words, how does sex reveal what other things are healthy or unhealthy with your spouse?
- Husbands, how sensitive are you to your wife’s sexual needs?
- Why it’s important to have Father’s SPEAK into the lives of their daughters.
