Don’t let painful sex, struggles with arousal, mental roadblocks, or relationship challenges keep you from the whole-person intimacy God intended your marriage to experience. 

Whether sex has been good or not so good in the past, midlife can be the season when your sex life becomes more whole than ever before.

  • Learn effective ways to manage the physical changes of menopause that affect your sex life
  • Leverage your most important sex organ – your mind
  • Navigate the challenging relationship issues that can sabotage intimacy

Sex after menopause isn’t only possible; it can become more satisfying, enjoyable, and intimate than you’ve yet experienced.
