I really love other people’s blogs. I think it’s because I love learning and I love people. It’s so much fun to read other people’s wisdom or opinions, as well as learn about their lives. It’s because of my love for blogs that I think other folks might like some of what I have to say…at least, that’s what I tell myself!
I guess it’s obvious that my name is Lauren Dack. I feel a little egocentric naming a blog after myself, but my excuse is and shall remain that I simply couldn’t come up with anything creative. That, and I want you to remember my name in case you ever need a good counselor! (email@example.com)
I’m a follower of Jesus, wife, new mom, and counselor. I found Christ in college. Turns out He found me much sooner, but I was slow in figuring that out. I’ve been married for 6 years and I love my husband, Josh (I like him most days, too!). We have 2 crazy, active, exhausting, beautiful, sweet little boys. As a counselor, I specialize in marriage and family therapy and sex therapy. I find so much purpose and joy in helping folks live their lives more effectively, purposefully, and intimately! Oh, and reading is and has always been my favorite hobby. Books have saved my life.
Through this blog I hope to teach you something, help you feel less alone, and maybe even make you smile!
It is beyond humbling that you are here and reading my words. Thank you.
Hello! I’m in a situation where I am terrifed to talk to my wife about anything. I tend to hide important information, credit card debt and etc, because I fear of her reactions. She seems to me to be very controlling and will inform me of what I can and cannot do. She has threaten me with divorce and etc. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Hi Schwindal, I’m sorry to hear about the situation you are in. I believe intimacy cannot occur when you cannot express your feelings. I do not have enough information of course, but your situation sounds like emotional abuse. I highly recommend marital therapy. If your wife refuses to attend, then I recommend you find a good individual therapist for yourself. You need support right now, and help sorting out your next steps. I wish you the best.
