Becoming a Legendary Couple After the Kids


Most of us say that our marriage is a priority, and usually it starts off well, but then the kids come. Time alone with our spouses becomes rare. Our children’s needs must constantly be met. Life gets hectic and patience runs thin. The happily ever after we imagined can turn into a nightmare.

This is an episode all dads and moms need to hear. Today we have our first couple on The Dad Edge podcast. Lance and Brandy are the creators of Legendary Couples. Their marriage deteriorated after the birth of their two daughters, very nearly ending in divorce. But they took action to save their marriage and now teach other couples how to cultivate that legendary love again.

'People expect marriage to exist. If you want your marriage to be amazing, you have to take those same priority principles from your business and health and you have to create a vision, a real plan.'—Lance Salazar, Legendary Couples… Click To Tweet

Lance and Brandy’s Story

Lance and Brandy Salazar got married thirteen years ago, ready to embark on their happily ever after together. At first, they were able to fit romance into their lives, but when they had kids, it pushed their relationship totally out of their schedule.

Lance and Brandy were on the fast track to divorce. At on point, Brandy was so fed up she couldn’t even stand Lance breathing next to her. This is the story of so many couples. What causes a marriage to end up this way?

In one final extraordinary effort, Lance and Brandy decided to try to make the marriage work. They knew it would take a radical approach, but they learned as they went along. They worked together to completely change their lives and make the relationship between each other and their kids truly legendary.

The Mindset Shift That Will Transform Your Relationships

The Mindset Shift That Will Transform Your Relationships

Who are we supposed to be in relationships? As men, no one gives us a manual on how to communicate, be emotionally available, and give our spouse or partner what they need.

Today we have Dad Edge Alliance member Ed Dillon on the show. He is a single father of four who’s had two failed marriages.

Ed spent years wondering why his relationships, including the ones with his kids, were falling flat.

He talks about what mindset shift took place that shed light on all he was doing wrong and how this lead to some of the most profound moments of connection in his life.

'Reaching out for help is the biggest thing. I tried to be an island. It doesn’t work.'—Ed Dillon #men #mastermind #fathers #marriage #divorce #singledads Click To Tweet

How can we have conversations that enhance emotional connection and foster intimacy with our spouses? #men #dads #fathers #marriage #relationships #vulnerability #communication #intimacy Click To Tweet

Wake Up Warrior with Garrett J White

Wake Up Warrior with Garrett J. White

Brace yourself. This show is going to be like a punch in the face, but it’s a punch in the face that we men need.

We are born warriors with big dreams for our lives, but many of us are getting beat down and overwhelmed. We suffer silently and alone, with no idea how or if we can break out to become the man we want to be.

In this explicit episode, I talk to Garrett J. White. He is the founder of Wake Up Warrior and Warrior Week. He is also the author of the Warrior Book.

With his stripped-down, brutal delivery, Garrett tells us how to get past the lies we tell ourselves to break free from the person we used to be so that we can get out of our own way and finally step into our own greatness.

This is by far the most intense interview we’ve had on The Dad Edge podcast!

'You want a better life? A better marriage? You want a bigger life for you as a father? You’re going to have to literally f*ckin’ let go of who you believe you are right now.' – Garrett J. White #men #manhood #masculinity #dreams… Click To Tweet

  • The question that changed him from employee to entrepreneur
  • That many men know they’re unhappy, but they don’t know who to talk to and are not clear on what would make them happy

  • Why he built the warior process to set him free
  • About his 30-day Warrior Week Experience, plus 5-day immersion
  • The Warrior’s Way – In order for a man to live he had to stop lying. The only way to stop lying is to tell the truth to himself and to tell the truth to a small group of other men he trusts.

How to Talk to Your Kids About Pornography

How to Talk to Your Kids About Pornography with Kristen Jenson


Kristen Jenson is the author of Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today’s Young Kids. In this show, she tells us how to initiate a healthy conversation with our kids about pornography according to age group. She also gives a 1, 2, 3 action plan for kids so they know what to do if they see pornography.

Kristen explains the brain science behind pornography addiction and how it warps the mind. She also explains how it can lead to relationship problems and even erectile dysfunction.

This is a scary topic, but it’s up to parents to start the conversation as early as possible before kids get the wrong ideas about sex and intimacy from the internet. Save this episode!

'If you want your kids to have a healthy view of sex and intimacy, then you have to step it up and have these conversations at a young a before they see it on the internet.' – @ProtectYM #kids #children #parenting #pornaddiction Click To Tweet

Kristen Jenson

Kristen Jenson never planned on writing a book about pornography until she met the mother of a large family who was doing her best to raise her kids with healthy values. Then the woman discovered her 17-year-old son molested all of his siblings, from the ages of 14 to 4. He had been into pornography.

Pornography has never been more accessible. Now, all that’s needed is an internet connection to see anything and everything that is out there. Our kids are on electronics devices all the time and even if we have filters in place, we cannot control what they see outside the home.

Child-on-child sexual abuse and porn addiction numbers are rising. After Kristen saw this problem affecting so many kids, she researched to see what books were available on the topic. She couldn’t find any. This compelled her to do something about it. Her first book has been a bestseller on Amazon for the better part of three years.

'If you become their wiling expert on sex, they’re going to go to you.' – Kristen Jenson #sex #sexed #kids #children #parenting #dads #fathers Click To Tweet

What You’ll Learn

  • How using a book is an easier way to jump into the subject of pornography with your kids
  • Other ways to segue into conversations about sex and pornography
  • Why it’s easier to talk about pornography with your kids when they are younger
  • The common denominator of all porn addicts
  • How you are competing with the porn industry in the sex education of your child
  • What to do if you don’t know how to answer a question about pornography
  • How to keep your kids from sharing things they learn about sex and pornography with friends or younger siblings
  • How much detail to give about sex and pornography
  • Why it’s important to explain that sex is more than just for reproduction
  • How porn acts like a drug on the brain
  • Why people who use porn are less satisfied in their marriage and are more likely to be unfaithful
  • How porn can lead to erectile dysfunction
  • The difference between the thinking brain and the feeling brain
  • Why you should be wary of allowing your children to have their own devices
  • Resources for parents on how to protect your kids

Make Huge Improvements to Your Sex Life

5 Small Ways to Make Huge Improvements to Your Sex Life


In the previous episode, I had “Sex with Emily” on this show. As a female, a doctor of Human Sexuality, and a beautiful woman, Dr. Emily Morse gave us some fantastic tips on how to break the silence when it comes to talking about sex with our spouses.

Most of us men in The Good Dad Project community have been married for a while and things have cooled off in the bedroom department. Dr. Emily Morse said that it only takes 6 months to 2 years for the honeymoon phase to wear off. When kids enter the picture, making sex a priority is harder than ever.

Whether you are a husband or a wife, most of us can agree that we want amazing sex lives with our partner. In this short episode, I go over 5 small ways to make huge improvements to your sex life.

It should be just as easy to talk about sex with your spouse as it is to talk about the weather. Click To Tweet
