I was a disconnected man tripping through life with a happy disposition while my relationship with my wife was quietly dying. Once I discovered the truth about myself; that I was disconnected, disobedient, and downright relationally dysfunctional, I repented and began the long road to satisfying, intimate connection.
I’ve opened my heart to spill out the truths I learned from the pain of traveling that lonely road with the desire to help couples emotionally connect in ways they never felt possible. I expose all the excuses disconnected men offer to protect themselves, calling them to obey the relational commands in the Bible, while giving women the hope that the emotional intimacy they crave is indeed possible.
