    I like that. It is soooo true. Often relationship fall apart beacuse it didn’t start off right. If you have a good foundation, then you can definitely keep the relationship new and fresh. I often find myself looking at my spouse and how much we have in common. It is truly a wonderful thing. I would tell anyone that is trying to regain intimacy or renew intimacy to look at how it all started. If you started right, then you can definitely finish right, 50yrs plus years down the road.

    Hearing David speak is one of the things that has influenced me profoundly. I am a person that was born in the past generations, and DID not learn about sex in a way that functioned…… guilt, virgin/whole view. For me, I want what is true, even if it may be hard. In the end, it is such a relief… he told me what I suspected, was searching for, but had no words for, nor reliable resources to look to. Thank you so much! You save lives, Wendy! Love you!
