Woah! Did you say s-e-x? Yes! We need to stop thinking of it as a “bad word” and view it as God intended for it to be – an intimate (and important) part of our marriages. If you feel like you need to nurture your marriage, enhance your bond with your spouse, then this is the book for you! I see so often couples struggling because they don’t realize the importance of sex in marriage. It breaks my heart that I’ve seen many women that said they “don’t care.” Well, you SHOULD!
Here are some things author Sheila Wray Gregoire says:
Here’s why I’m passionate about sex: God created sex to unite us on three levels–physical, spiritual, and emotional. When we feel truly intimate on those three levels, our marriages soar. And that’s when we’re able to impact our churches and communities for Him.
But if we’re not connecting in our marriages, we lose out on a great strength that God gave us in this life. And we threaten our families and our children’s future.
The church doesn’t like to talk about sex, and so we leave it to our culture. And our culture has turned it into something perverse and disgusting.
I’m not willing to stand for that anymore. I think the church needs to step up and fight back and start redeeming sex.
And that’s what this ebook does. It takes couples through exercises about improving their communication, their friendship, their outlook on sex, and yes, even the mechanics of sex, so that their marriage can rock!
I’m really proud of this book, and I’m excited to see how God is going to use it.
I share her passion!
I truly appreciate Sheila’s passion for sharing this message and am a loyal follower of her blog To Love, Honor, and Vacuum. I also own her ebook “The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex,” which is, obviously, geared toward women. Although I’ve been married for 7 years I still learned a lot from the book – particularly understanding how my husband feels – how God designed him to be! Things haven’t always been easy for us, and we had a particularly rough time after his surgeries for cancer, and then his cancer came back and he had to go through chemotherapy. There were things he was feeling that I didn’t understand, and that book really gave me some “ah ha!” moments! God has been good to honor our Faith and strengthen our marriage through those hard times, and reading “The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex,” and following Sheila’s blog has just helped add to it!
Her new release “31 Days to Great Sex” is geared for couples to read through together. We haven’t had a chance to read all the way through it, but check back because I will be adding a review when we’re finished! I love that there is not only the message of intimacy but the closeness we are sharing reading it together! Something Sheila also stresses often is the importance of friendship in our marriages. This is absolutely true and doing little things together like reading this book will also help build your relationship as friends! Marriage is meant to be fun and enjoyable, and I know you will NOT be disappointed!
