Do we have any secrets? Moreover am I a gossip? Probably. I need to be more mindful of what I share and what I protect. Now how do I rebuild any trust loss and promote that emotional intimacy? Simply.. Pray for guidance and honesty. There are questions at the end of the book and I have also bought a few other books which list questions to ask your spouse to rebuild trust and intimacy. We started asking each other a few personal questions the other evening while laying in bed, just before turning out the lights. Its a wonderful time to reconnect and bond. Today I will look inside myself and pray for guidance in confessing my secrets as well as honoring his. I pray that my spouse feels safe in my presence and entrusts me with his most intimate thoughts, feelings, and fears. I pray that the Lord also allow my spouse to the same for me.
I am curious what other books have you come across for rebuilding trust and intimacy?
Those talks before bed are great, but even if your husband does not react to your secrets the way you hoped, still trust in the Lord. Hold on to Christ and keep being open and loving.
I could definitely read the books that you found about rebuilding trust and intimacy. Those are the two biggest issues that have broken down my marriage. If you would share the names of them, I would greatly appreciate it.
Well, the books are more him Trusting me with secrets and emotional intimacy. I got 264 Romantic Questions by Gregory Godek to ask him questions that will rebuild his trust in me and increase our intimacy. I also bought the 5 Languages of Love (how to express heartfelt commitment to your spouse - the gift edition) by Gary Chapman and the last book is The Power of a Praying Wife Devotional by Stormie Omartian. I plan on doing the love dare, then reading the 5 languages and then doing the Prayer Devotional. But who knows HIS plan is.
The 5 Love Languages is a great book! I just got done reading it and my husband is actually reading it now. It helps you figure out what your love language is and same with your spouse. It helps you communicate more with each other and gives examples on what to do. I highly reccomend that book! :)
