Ask a Mormon Sex Therapist Part 29 - LIVE
00:40:14

In this first ever LIVE recording of an Ask a Mormon Sex Therapist podcast episode Dr. Finlayson-Fife joins the Mormon Marriages team to address the following questions…

Question # 1 - “My wife and I are trying to conceive. This is one of the most stressful times of my life, and stress is a major anti-aphrodisiac for me. How do I confront the pressure to perform?”

Question # 2 - "My wife has a “fun” sexual past with her high school boyfriends. Before we dated she had shared too many of those experiences with me. I was fine with it, until I woke up to her crying on our wedding night. It triggered a jealousy and resentment where I feel she gave “them” her fun self. I got the Mormon prude and they got the fun girl. I love her, but I feel like she has never chosen me. I get that I’m at fault with the unforgiving heart and mad with jealousy that has built emotional walls. I feel like all our sex has been mercy sex. I don’t even want to have sex with her because that’s what it is. When we become intimate all I can see is her doing “this” with “them.” It makes me regret and feel bitterness that I strived to stay a virgin and be as "clean" as I could. I feel like I have lived life wrong. Since she is a terrific good person and she has the “dirty” past, she is the better more healthy person while I am the bitter/resentful seminary graduate boy. It makes me hate myself that I can’t get over that. I’m over 15 years into this and the cloud just gets darker and bigger. How can I start becoming more intimate with my wife while suffering with this intense jealousy? I just finished your course enhancing sexual intimacy and I am grateful for you and what you are doing. So, thank you and I would love to here your answer knowing it will be painful.”

This episode is one of two parts of the live recording. Part 29 is the second half of this live interview.

"Get Over Yourself" - When Perfectionism Undermines Your Development, Relationships, And Peace Of Mind
00:43:21

Have you ever heard the saying, "I am my own worst enemy?" If you've thought or said that about yourself, then this episode is for you. (And if you haven't, then this episode is also for you.)

All of us carry the innate tendency to mask our own humanity--our flaws--from those we love. Doing so actually inhibits our growth, creates tension in our relationships, and leads to inner turmoil. The only way to get over all that is to get over ourselves.

Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, being interviewed once again by Monica Packer from the About Progress Podcast, teaches us what this tendency looks like in action, and what we can do to fix it by facing our own flaws with compassion and true moral courage. She also helps us see what we get out of doing so: a life filled with challenges, but also more love, fulfillment, and freedom.

Differing Views and Beliefs Part 2
00:18:03

In this podcast episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife speaks with Sherrae Phelps of Ten Thousand Hours of Writing Podcast about how to respect the differing views and beliefs of others as well as how to approach difficult or uncomfortable conversations about religious topics. To hear more from Sherrae Phelps, visit her at www.tenthousandhoursofwriting.com.

"It’s easy to be threatened by change and to want to call it evil. Our first instinct to something that is foreign or with something we don’t know is that it must be bad. It’s just in our DNA to do that. And I think it is really important to be very cautious to write something or someone off before we give it a thoughtful integrity based response. ”

-Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife

We are threatened by change and things that are different. We are threatened when someone disagrees with, diminishes, or challenges our view. It throws us off balance. It feels like a personal attack. And that fear can distort our ability to see the situation accurately. It can also, if we coddle it, limit our ability to respond with moral integrity and courage.

Think of Fiddler on the Roof. How often were Tevye’s beliefs challenged? And not by outsiders, but by his daughters whom he loved and cared for deeply. He was constantly wading through the legitimate challenge of finding a way to love and embrace his daughters and his beliefs. If we’re not careful, the fear that arises when our beliefs are challenged can cause us to respond with emotional immaturity. That poor response can damage relationships and erode our character. But if we can ground ourselves and respond with moral integrity, then those moments can become pivotal milestones in our lives.

Is it Ever Virtuous to Submit?
00:20:47

In this podcast episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife speaks with Sherrae Phelps of Ten Thousand Hours of Writing Podcast about the topic of submission. In this episode you will learn more about what submission means and how it can be driven either by fear or moral courage. To hear more from Sherrae Phelps, visit her at www.tenthousandhoursofwriting.com.

“When submission is a virtue, it’s an active choice to yield to something because you think it will create the greater good. It’s not driven by fear; it’s driven by moral courage.”

– Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife

Sherrae Phelp’s Thoughts About This Episode:

The word submission can accurately be used to describe weak behavior, but submission can also describe virtuous behavior.

I’ll be honest; I don’t like the word submission. I don’t like the meanings that are typically associated with the word submission. When I picture someone submitting, I think of an act that weakens and makes one vulnerable. But I do think there can be submissive behaviors that are virtuous, and that type of submission is a little harder to identify and define because the negative meanings are so prevalent.

In this interview with Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, she explains what submission looks like as a virtue and what it looks like as a weakness.

Thinking and Acting For Yourself
00:44:29

In this podcast episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife speaks with Sherrae Phelps of Ten Thousand Hours of Writing Podcast about the topic of thinking for ourselves. In this episode you will learn more about how to make your own decisions based on your integrity and moral compass rather than approval of others. To hear more from Sherrae Phelps, visit her at www.tenthousandhoursofwriting.com.

“One of the things that interferes with our ability to think for ourselves is our need and desire for approval—our desire for other people to acknowledge or validate what we do. The more we depend on that, the more it will distract us from our own internal compass. You don’t want to cut out the voices of other people—-that would be immoderate in the other direction. But you don’t want the voices of other people to distract you from your own compass, because your own compass is an important source of knowledge and this is a gift to us.”

–Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife

Within many religions, the idea of being a disciple is encouraged and honored and viewed as a pathway for growth, wisdom, and for spiritual and emotional development. But when discipleship is misused it encourages dependency rather than independence and in turn, limits one’s growth and development and wisdom.

Discipleship is about acting not about being acted upon.

In this interview, Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife talks about what it means to be a disciple that thinks and acts for themselves.

Indulgent Suffering
00:19:31

In this podcast episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife speaks with Sherrae Phelps of Ten Thousand Hours of Writing Podcast about the topic of indulgent suffering. In this episode you will learn more about how to act out of virtue and integrity and how to let go of immature thought patterns that can be harmful to personal development. To hear more from Sherrae Phelps and Ten Thousand Hours of Writing Podcast, visit her at www.tenthousandhoursofwriting.com.

Often to determine if something is right or good or God’s will, we use pain, suffering, and sacrifice for a measuring stick. While I do not disagree that sometimes virtuous acts can be difficult and inconvenient, I think we are missing the mark when we use “pain and suffering” as a way to determine if something is right or wrong.

It’s like we have this mental checklist. Is it inconvenient? Check. Is it the opposite of what I want? Check. Is it going to require sacrifice? Check. Is it going to cause suffering? Check. Is it going to be hard? Check. Conclusion: This must be good, right, and God’s will. But this is a flawed and limited way to discern to discern what is good and right.

In this interview, Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife talks about this indulgent suffering that as Christians we sometimes value, and discuss the moral development required to act instead with virtue and integrity.
