Back in the day, when I would hear songs like; It’s Cheaper to Keep Her by Johnnie Taylor, and No Pain No Gain by Betty Wright, blaring from the house windows of my aunt and uncle, I knew she was mad about the grass not being cut or he was mad Hamburger Helper was for dinner again! LOL!
It’s no secret marriages are a lot of hard work. So for the sake of “LOVE” I reached out to very well-known and respected marriage counselor Sharon Lawrence of My Selah Wellness for the three biggest problems facing marriages today and three solutions to make marriage last. So for all you married folk and those hoping to one day be, this is to you!
Enjoy the interview!

A former school and community agency counselor and creator of the 7-Step Method, Anita’s helped guide people from the ages of eleven to fifty through their own life issues, personal transformations and professional endeavors. With an old soul and a comedic, honest voice. She uses many southern colloquialisms and colorful expressions to unwrap personal stories of surviving a homicidal alcoholic father, a mother in denial and four physically and emotionally abusive brothers and relates them to guiding principles and healing techniques.
Through her powerful and uplifting interviews at ThatAnitaLive.TV and The Emotional Happiness Podcast women get to see and hear real women with resourceful stories living relentless lives after life's most devastating events. Through her charismatic and compelling speaking, Anita helps women use the tools and resources they already have to reveal and release success blockers such as childhood trauma and family dysfunction so they can build self-confidence, boost their self-esteem and feel free to live true to their own personality, spirit and character.
In her newly released ebook, 7 Simple Steps to Beat Emotional Baggage, Anita shares actionable techniques that will walk women through letting go of the past and rising above the glass ceiling to reach higher levels of success and satisfaction in life.
