Today we continuing our conversation with interracial couple Katelyn and Kelvin Belser. They met each other at church 14 years ago. But when they developed feelings for each other, and Katelyn’s family found out, they were forced to break up. They had to end their relationship and had zero contact for over a year.
However, when their paths crossed again, they could not ignore the spark they felt for each other. They believe, that when you truly love someone, you have to fight for that love. These two have an inspiring mindset about their journey and the struggles they have had to overcome. Coming from different cultural backgrounds, having different role models of healthy marriages, losing a parent to cancer and dealing with the lack of support from her family – has not torn them apart, but instead made them stronger together.
You do not want to miss this episode as these two might be young, but they are wise beyond their years. Their faith is strong, and their love for each other is even stronger.

They have noticed one common thread that can affect your relationship and it is the culture. Whether you are trying to define your role within your partnership, or you are just learning how to date with respect to what is surrounding you. They encourage everyone to learn what they want from their relationship and express that with their partners.
Do you want an exceptional relationship?? Jáchym and Natasha have transformed their relationship past the nagging, hurtful moments to the blessed happiness they have now. All by identifying what is causing the unhappiness and the hard conversations that help no one. What comes after the honeymoon can be greater than anything else just by pushing you and your partner to get out of the rut you are in and listening to what is really happening in front of you!

Today we are chatting with my long-time friend Cami Hurst. Mom of 4, counselor, and sex therapist – she believes that our sexuality was designed to bring power, connection and pleasure into our lives.
She is a passionate counselor, educator, speaker and advocate. She hosts the podcast Sex Therapy 101, has her own private practice, and is the founder of the Association of Sexual Health Professionals of Idaho.
She is driven to help couples create LIFE LONG love stories. To do this we must know: The 6 principles of sexual health:
1. There must be consent, to prevent any emotional or physical negative effects.
2. Non-exploitation, where both parties are free from any power or extortion in retaining sexual favors.
3. Honesty, whether or not we are “faking” something or not.
4. Shared values, couples need to come together and agree on what is acceptable to prevent hurt feelings.
5. Protection from pregnancy and STIs– being honest about exposure.
6. Mutual Pleasure– both people have a right to mutual pleasure.
There is no “right way” to have a healthy sexual relationship. What is really comes down to is what YOU and YOUR PARTNER agree upon and are BOTH mutually satisfied with. Communication is key and it is important to understand what your expectations are in the relationship in order for it to be successful.
She also teaches us about the different forms of sexual desires. Spontaneous desire vs responsive desire. Spontaneous desire is what is most often portrayed in the movies or in books. “I am horny and want sex now”, which is mostly common for men. Whereas, responsive desire is when “sex is not on my mind, but you might be able to talk or touch me into it”. It is important to know that we are not all hard wired the same. You and your partner may not both feel spontaneous desire at the same time. But they may be able to respond to your desire.
Appreciating our partner’s differences makes for long term fulfilling partnerships- NOT striving for sameness.

They did this in order to give couples access to resources to rock the sexual dimension of their marriage, because something magical happens when you and your spouse are on the same page! Sex is more than just your bodies joining, it is a symbol of the total union of two people coming together.
