Our Background:

 My wife and I are a Christian couple that just recently celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. We have pre-teen twin daughters that keep us very busy. For our first 18 years of marriage we were living the dream. I had a really good job as a VP of a Fortune 50 company with a great income. I worked long hours, my wife had her interests, we went to church, raised our kids and basically thought we had a great thing going. Then everything changed when my job went away. Debt grew, stress grew, and all of our savings were used up. 

After some hard conversations, we realized that we had been going through daily life as a married couple, but we had grown apart over the years into our own worlds. 

My wife thought I was shut off and not really engaged. I thought my wife never wanted sex and did not desire me. And the incredible financial stress was having a major impact on our marriage.

The Comeback:

In 2019 we decided to seek marriage counseling from a Christian based counselor. We begin to listen to Christian marriage podcasts together. We begin to engage in daily devotionals and prayer together every single day to start our day. We both learned amazing things about ourselves and our marriage that we both wished we had known before we were married. But the church and others never talked about or taught these things. We learned how important prayer, communication, commitment – and yes sex – is to our marriage. And we learned how marriage positive, intimacy positive and sex positive God’s design is.

Why Romantic Blessings:

We were both so impacted by the Christian podcasts, counseling, Christian blogs and other tools that we both wanted to find a way to do our part to carry on the mission and worship of marriage. One thing we learned being a part of the forums and discussions through the podcasts was that Christian married couples were struggling to find a safe environment where they could shop for marital aids to grow and explore their intimacy together. So we felt led by God that opening this online store is one way we can be “missionaries” to others. As you can tell from our story - we are not perfect and we struggle as much as anyone else. We are not sex experts. We are not marriage experts. We are not theological experts. We are just a simple, grateful Christian couple that wants to pay it forward.

We pray that Romantic Blessings will be able to bless your marriage in some way.

Our Prayers for Romantic Blessings are:

  • By taking the leap of faith to establish Romantic Blessings we pray we will fulfill the mission the Holy Spirit has placed upon our hearts to remind couples that you can have a fulfilled sexual life with your spouse and still be in line with God’s ideal for marriage .
  • We pray that the products, resources, and business partnerships we offer through Romantic Blessings will honor God by helping couples grow closer to each other in their marriages. Thus, bringing them, as one flesh, closer to God and closer to His design for the Christian marriage.
  • We pray that at least one marriage that is not being reached in any other way will be truly and intimately blessed through the products and resources offered through Romantic Blessings.
  • We pray that couples, or individuals, will be blessed through our resources by knowing that God truly loves them and cares for their needs.
  • In our prayers we get strength to not let the focus of Romantic Blessings be corrupted by money or led by greed. We continually pray and receive strength to always stay focused on honoring God in all that we do and all that we offer.
  • We pray daily for God's direction for Romantic Blessings. We pray daily that every product, service, and business partnership we associate with Romantic Blessings is led by God.

The above statements are what we pray for daily. What we would like to ask of you is that you add Romantic Blessings to your personal prayer list. We ask you to pray that God will give us discernment in all that we do, that we will continue to listen to God’s still voice, and that we will recognize God's guidance in all that we do.

Romantic Blessings Guest on Intimate Marriage Podcast

Although I don’t typically focus on religious considerations on The Intimate Marriage Podcast, I was thrilled to have a wonderful conversation with devoted, church-going Christians Teresa and Blair Bass. They set out to make a change in the way their fellow Christians view sex and intimacy by opening a Christian sex toy shop where you can purchase sex toys and other supplies, receive instruction and respectful encouragement. Now this is the place where Christians get their sex toys.
