Rank #2: #281: Growing Closer Through Conflict
There’s no such thing as instant intimacy. Love at first sight? Perhaps. But intimacy is something else entirely. It takes years to fully know and accept the person you’re married to. In this episode, Juli and her guest dive into why healthy conflict is one of the best ways to build intimacy with your spouse.

Rank #3: #267: Are You Having Sex or Building Intimacy?
You can be sexually active without being sexually intimate. But is that God's best? Our sexuality is designed to be laced with spiritual and relational significance, but we have all been impacted by sin, busyness, and the cultural trend to see sex as simply something that we do (or worse: a "duty"). Pull up a chair with Juli, Linda and Yvette as they discuss the difference between sexual intimacy and sexual activity.
Guests: Linda Dillow & Yvette Maher

Rank #5: BONUS! #235: How the Purity Movement Hurt Us
"I always thought that if I did everything the way God told us to, then I would be blessed, I would be happy and I would have a good marriage. That was decidedly not the case." Well-meaning parents and youth pastors promised marital bliss if you could only make it to the altar as a virgin. For many, the promise didn't deliver. In this episode, Juli brings truth and compassion to the imperfect purity message of the 90s.

Rank #6: #275: Finding Freedom from Unwanted Desires
Overwhelmingly, the response to unwanted sexual desires has been to manage them. Bounce your eyes. Get accountability. Love Jesus more. How's it working for you? We believe there is another approach. In this episode, Jay Stringer explains how internet search bars and browser histories reveal more than just your sin, they also reveal the unaddressed and untended wounds in your heart. Will you sit awhile with your brokenness? It can be a roadmap to healing.

Rank #10: #266: Your Marriage, God's Design
What do you want out of marriage? If you’re like most of us, you hope for love, companionship, passion and other good things that happen to be self-serving. But our guests in this episode, Aaron & Jennifer Smith, contend that “like everything that God gives us, [marriage] is not intended for us only.” Grab your coffee, pull up a chair and be challenged to think about marriage in a way that transcends what you hope to get out of it.
