1. Can I love this a million times! I have recently taught a class about “sacred sex” and how others should not be ashamed to talk about SEX in Church. Sex was created by God to be a holy act between married couples. Having a healthy sexual relationship is key in marriages. I loved how you wrote that it isn’t just for “men.’ I loved this post so much!!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the post! I never realized how much I would be talking to married couples about sex as a Christian mental health therapist. It has become so skewed and tainted. Thank you for reading and commenting! God Bless!

  2. I went into marriage expecting sex to be great and it has been! However, over the last 15 years, our lives are often so busy that it doesn’t happen with nearly the frequency that I’d like. Yet you are right, it the very act that is created by God to help bring husband and wife together. Thanks for the reminder that we need to make it more of a priority.

      I’m glad the post touched you today! Sexual intimacy is definitely meant to be a time of joy and togetherness rather than “oh yeah…” Schedule it in! Thank you for reading and commenting! God Bless!

  3. So very true!! This is a topic that is so frequently side stepped and makes people feel awkward but when seen as a God-given gift can be spoken of with wisdom and encouragement. Thanks for your input!

      I think it has trickled down from a place of anxiety. We worry about our children making mistakes that could hinder their health and/or change their life. So then being told about sex in hushed tones by uncomfortable parents continues the pattern. Thank you for reading and commenting. God Bless!

  4. When my children get older, I love that I can tell them that their daddy is the only boy I’ve ever kissed and that our wedding night was as God intended it to be, the first one. I only hope that I can teach my children what a gift purity truly is.

      That truly is a gift that not many people can say! Thank you for reading and commenting! Many blessing to you and your family!

  5. I think if more believers shared how amazing this gift of sex is in a marriage, more teens would be steadfast in waiting, more marriages would be spared from divorce, and more children would grow up in loving homes! Thank you for speaking truth that is so needed in our culture today!

      I agree so much Maria! The understanding of sex has become so skewed and it has caused such harm in so many families! Thank you for reading and commenting. God Bless!

  6. Thank you for sharing this at Christian Marriage and Motherhood this week! It’s always a subject less written about, but so important and vital in married life. I’m glad to have stopped by your blog today!

      Sexual intimacy definitely gets less focus in terms of post topics but it is one of the most talked about subjects in my therapy office with clients. Thank you for reading and commenting! God Bless!
