Listen to the Show

Holidays help us remember important times in our lives, and Valentine’s Day comes around each year to remind us of the magic of romance. But love and relationship involve so much more than the heady “falling in love” phase. It’s been said, “Where there’s love, there’s life!” We explore the wonders of love and offer some helpful ideas to promote intimacy and handle rough patches. You’ll hear:

  • how Valentine's Day became a romantic holiday
  • what dynamics are involved when two people fall in love
  • stories that describe why love changes over time
  • the importance of honoring the various stages of loving
  • why commitment is both sexy and freeing
  • ingredients you need to form the mature phase of relationship
