Resources on Sex

Welcome to the blog!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this series on Sex. All levels of participation were needed and much appreciated. Thank you for your words of encouragement, prayers, comments, emails, questions, and for those of you who shared personal revealations and successes!

I know God has done some great and amazing work through this series...and it is He who gets all the applause!

When we started back in August on this series it was a stepping out in obedience for me. And thats just what I did, grabbed my Jesus' hand, kept praying, trusting and knowing that He would use it to bring His people closer to His heart.

I feel so honored and privileged to get to see God work in the everyday!

Today as the series comes to an end I want to share some resources that have been very helpful to me.

A book titled Intimate Issues. I have participated in 2 small groups while reading this book and highly recommend it to all of my girlfriends! If you click on the link it will take you to Amazon to take a peek at the book!

Another book I think is great in dealing with all issues including Sex in marriage is Love and Respect.

When seeking out a lot of questions on Sex I have found the Focus on the Family website to be very helpful. Here you have also find out how to talk to your children about Sex. They have some great resources on purity.

May I also encourage you to read Song of Songs. A beautiful book in the Bible that Gods very hand is all over. A book that displays His beauty and design for His very people in regards to Sex.

I would love to challenge you to continue to seek His purpose for I am committed to doing the same! I will continue to lift you up in prayer as I know the enemy does NOT want to see us living free in this area!

Thank you so much for joining me!

I am so looking forward to living on purpose with you!

Nichole, I'm eagerly living on purpose, right along side of you, my dear friend! :) Thank you for this series, that has led me to seek to know my husband more. The more we know God, the more we spend time with God, the closer we feel to Him. The less of us and the more of Him, the sweeter the relationship is. God has shown me that this is too, His desire for us with our husbands. To truly seek to know them better! To pray for this daily. To not settle for a great marriages, but to seek God's Will in what kind of marriage He desires us to have.

Love you! Lori - AZ

Thank You Father God for using Nichole in sharing life lessons concerning sex in marriage. I pray that every would be challenged as I have. I pray for all those who are struggling that they would surrender fully to You Father God. I praise You for what You're doing in my marriage and hope that others are blessed by You in their marriages. In Jesus' name, amen.

Love and Respect was a good read. Learning to understand my man has impacted our marriage so much.

I have enjoyed this series. I didn't always comment (perhaps many of your posts hit close to home...) but I am grateful to have been able to learn so much about a subject that so many find hard to write about.

Thanks for these resources. Focus on the Family has some great ones related to a great many issues.

And thanks for doing the series. I love writing series and following them on blogs. Don't be surprised if God sparks your heart for a new one. Let me know when you do!
