Like Gary Thomas says, we come into marriage with certain “sexpectations” of what we’ll experience with our spouse. We look forward to romance, pleasure, and satisfaction over a lifetime of love together. But every couple struggles to sustain the passion. To understand each other’s needs and wants. To communicate our thoughts, feelings, and desires about the most personal part of our relationship. We want to draw close and experience all God designed sex to be, but we don’t know how to make it happen.   Today’s guest, Gary Thomas, comes with practical insight to help you and your spouse break down walls to build the love life you’ve always hoped for. He helps us to understand   What moved him to teach on the topic of married sex God’s design for your ideal love life  Why sex can get better and better as you get older Why you don’t need a new spouse; you need new experiences together How to open up communication with your spouse about your love life The most important question to ask each other about sex How sex can glorify God as our Creator  Gary Thomas  is an award-winning author, speaker, and professor whose books have sold over two million copies.
