These classes are pre-recorded and accessible online. Therefore you can work through the classes at your own pace, reviewing and skipping ahead to subsections of the course, as needed. The course includes outlines to guide you through the course content as well as corresponding assignments. Purchase includes one year of access to the course as well as monthly office hours*, both of which can be extended if desired.
* OFFICE HOURS
Monthly "Office Hours" are provided with the purchase of any course. Office hours provide an opportunity, in an anonymous conference call setting, to ask questions about course concepts as well as their application to individual situations. The Office Hours schedule will be sent to you with a purchase, as well as recordings of the meetings if you are not able to attend the live call.
"Office Hours are one of the things I look forward to every month. They are so insightful and inspiring. I can’t thank you enough for this work you do." -- G.B. Course Participant
The Strengthening Your Relationship Course is an excellent foundation for the Enhancing Sexual Intimacy Course. While not a prerequisite, Dr. Finlayson-Fife recommends that you take the relationship course first or in conjunction with the couples' sexuality course. You can purchase both courses together at a discount.

(Unsolicited) REVIEWS FROM COURSE PARTICIPANTS:
"I am LOVING your classes SO much!! Thank you!! ... ... Really facing myself and looking at the hard truth of all I've done to contribute to our many struggles, I decided I really wanted to start over again. I focused on working on my own sexuality leading up to our [recent] trip so that I could bring that to him more fully. So, without all the details ;-), I TRULY fell in love with my husband again. It seems crazy and cliche, but seriously, all that I've been able to confront within myself has unlocked my ability to love him more fully and completely---which honestly, I had no idea was possible! I'm still working on myself and my own capacity to desire and give myself to him, but MAN! the sex is amazing! and it's like I CANNOT get enough of him! --I'm pretty sure he didn't see this side of me coming after 20 years of marriage! So again, thank you!! --T.A., Course Participant
"Jennifer, your [new] sexuality course is excellent---truly exceptional. It has made such a difference for me and my wife. We are in a better place than we've ever been because of it. The work you are doing is so needed, and so important in the Mormon world. Thank you, again." ---E.H., Course Participant.
I've been meaning to write and thank you for both of your classes. ... I can honestly say that your classes have invigorated and reinvented our marriage. Both of us have been happier than we've been in years --- probably the happiest we've ever been. Our daughter said to me recently that she noticed that my husband and I have been so much more positive and happy. I cannot tell you how wonderful this all is! Just know that you are doing really good, important, lasting work! Thank you so much! --- S.D., Course Participant.
"Thanks for everything. This course has had the most impact for good on my marriage than anything else we've ever done. Thank you incredibly much! I only wish I had access to this 30 years ago, when we married. Oh well. Better late than never! ... I genuinely appreciate your work. You're a blessing to the world." ---M.P. --Course Participant.
"I wanted to send you a heartfelt (belated) thanks for taking so much time to respond to me on last month's office hours call. (I was the long question about pornography.) I am so grateful to you! ... Your classes have made all the difference for our story. My husband has soaked in and applied everything he possibly can from all of your classes. We listen to them on repeat. We are major JFF fans! It has helped him to understand himself and develop emotional skills that he never had. Turns out he's pretty good at developing emotionally now that he has some knowledge. I will be forever grateful!" ---G. B. Course Participant
"Thank you for teaching this class. We had a wonderful experience with both the "Strengthening Your Relationship" and the "Enhancing Sexuality" courses. I found the assignments particularly helpful. Going through them allowed me to process what I learned in the classes and apply it to myself. Doing that helped me identify a lot of things I need to confront to improve my relationship to my own sexuality and my sexual connection with my husband. I feel like I'm leaving the course with tools in my tool box to deal with my avoidance of sex, a problem I now see more clearly." ---S.R., Course Participant
"[My husband] and I have been doing the exercises from your class and found them really helpful. …. The first time we tried [one of the exercises], I was overwhelmed with a feeling of being cared for----really cared for. ... It was a gift that I gave to myself as much as [my husband] gave to me as I let myself receive. The next day, I was full of energy and excitement and found myself really looking forward to our next session that night. After we did it for the second night, we had the best sex we have ever had. It is hard to describe, but it really was a beautiful conversation, like you had said it could be. I felt like we were expressing respect for the best in each other and also freely receiving the message. Without "trying" to, we gazed in each others eyes the whole time and shared a really spiritual experience. ..." --- C.M., Course Participant.
"I want to thank you for your courses. I think you are absolutely brilliant. I have been doing a lot of research and counseling and reading, and your perspective has been the most helpful to me" --M.G., Course Participant
