“You can tell somebody, ‘trust me trust me trust me’, but if they have not worked through the issues that are causing them not to trust you, and you know in your heart that you are being trustworthy-then I think you are going to need a third party in there. So Christian Counseling is the next big step in there.” -Dr. Kim

“We don’t value trust until it’s broken” -Dr. Kim

“You just can’t keep having a marriage when there is not trust. Because you are going to live separate lives and not going to be connected where you should be connected. There will always be a missing piece there if you are not trusting in a certain area.” -Dr. Kim

Emotional Infidelity: The Warning Signs | Ep. 260
28:53

When it comes to an emotional affair, do you know the warning signs? This month at Awesome Marriage we are talking about emotional infidelity and trust issues.

Today Dr. Kim & Christina talk specifically about emotional infidelity and the warning signs of it. Emotional affairs are everywhere and they are, unfortunately, very easy to slip into. So we have to be careful to guard our marriage from any kind of affair, including one that never gets physical. The reality is, we are ALL at risk of having an emotional affair and we should all be putting up safeguards to protect our marriage from the damage of an emotional affair.

RESOURCES

List of Warning Signs You Might Be Having An Emotional Affair:

  • If you daydream about someone of the opposite sex
  • If you compare someone of the opposite sex to your spouse often
  • If you have ever thought of someone of the opposite sex sexually and if you begin to think of them in this way regularly
  • If you are saving topics of conversation for somebody other than your spouse because, in your mind, they understand you better
  • If you are sharing intimate details about your marriage with someone of the opposite sex
  • If you look forward to seeing the other person more than your spouse
  • You’re doing things or saying things with this other person that you wouldn’t want your spouse to see
  • You’re keeping things from your spouse
  • You dress to impress this other person
  • You look for opportunities to get away from your spouse and spend time with this other person
  • You delete messages from this other person so your spouse won’t see
  • Not being content and accepting of your spouse
  • You take selfies of yourself and send it this other person
  • You post pictures of yourself online because you know this other person will see them and like them

‘The Price of Fame.’ It’s a story of hope, faith, and wrestling. Ted was professional wrestling legend ‘The Million Dollar Man.’ However, backstage, the greatest wrestling match Ted DiBiase was having was with himself. He was a devoted family man, a pillar of his community, and a man who had faith. On the other side was a man that was ‘living the life’. He defined ‘Sex, Drugs and Professional Wrestling. One night after being out on the town all of this debauchery came to a head as his wife, Melanie, discovered her husband was not the man he claimed to be.

 

Knowing the values his father instilled in him, the commitment he was breaking, the role model he was failing to be and the person he had become, Ted DiBiase fought for his redemption. The Price Of Fame is told through the eyes of Ted’s son, former WWE Superstar, Ted DiBiase Jr. He journeys through pro wrestling's past to find his father's story and to find his own faith all over again.

The Heart of Man: Interview with Jens Jacob
39:11

Today on the podcast we have special guest Jens Jacob joining Dr. Kim as they talk about the brand new film “The Heart of Man.” This new film will be shown in theaters nationwide for one day only, this Thursday, Sept 14th 2017!

 

The Heart of Man is a story inviting the sons and daughters of God to leave behind our broken, moralistic and religious way of thinking and relating to God and to others. Once we begin to know who God is (and as a result who we are), we have something to invite the world into. Freedom from performance. Freedom from managing our behavior so we appear acceptable to God. Freedom from our addictions, compulsive behaviors, secrecy and double lives. This film tears the veil of confusion over the church's current identity crisis and enables it to invite the rest of the world to the banquet God is throwing all of us.

 

Jens Jacob is a Director and Producer and produced The Heart of Man.
