Michele Lisenbury Christensen


On this episode - our first Ask Michele - I answer two great questions from listeners.  One has been inviting her husband into deeper intimacy but is worried the relationship will get lopsided or he’ll begin to roll his eyes at her if she asks for more of what she envisions for them.  The other reader is frustrated that, although  her partner is doing a lot around the house while she works and he doesn’t, he does it on his timeframe, and it still feels like ultimately, the buck stops with HER.  Listen in for my thoughts, which will apply to your life & love whether or not your circumstances match these listeners’ or not.


As you listen to this episode, you'll hear about/learn/discover:

  • How to invite your beloved in deeper without fear 
  • The truth learned during my person couples counseling journey. Here’s a secret, I didn’t like what I heard
  • How to create a truly egalitarian relationship that works for both of you
  • What omelets and fruit salad have to do with relationships?
  • Tips for when you feel like you are doing it all and need some help

And more.

"If we're going to create egalitarian relationships, we're gonna have to be really intentional, and really clear eyed in how we approach this, because if we don't we wind up really pissed off and really exhausted. And neither of those feels remotely turned on, am I right?"
