Here is a recap of the 72 Hour Club posts so far…
Could a Good Sex Life Change Your Marriage? – The idea…could marriages be transformed by the simple commitment to respect & respond to our husband’s God-given needs for sexual intimacy and to make this aspect of our marriages a priority?

What if the Desire for Sex is Missing? – Prompted by comments of readers, I attempt to address the more difficult obstacle of a lack of sexual desire, both for wives or husbands.
What Changes are You Seeing? – A compilation of feedback from 72 Hour Club Members about what changes they are seeing in themselves and in their marriages.
The short answer is INTIMACY.
The longer answer is the beautiful manifestation of the fullness of intimacy – physical, emotional, and spiritual – that happen in the acts of sexual intimacy.
As women, we are wired by God with a high need for emotional intimacy. It allows us to be the helpers, the lovers, the caretakers in our marriages, families and communities. God also designed men with a prominent need, and that is physical intimacy. Wait. Did God make a mistake here? Why would He design us so differently?
No mistakes here. God is faultless. Instead this design beautifully shows the blending of these two needs…
For women, often emotional connection drives our desire for sex, while for our men, sexual connection drives their desire for emotional intimacy.
This can create a wonderful balance in our marriages. Or it can cause a lot of conflict and heartache.
