We are not the lies we were taught. We are not the mistakes we’ve made. We are not the sexual dysfunction we experience. We are children of the Living God.
There is something they never tell you
About the nature of love
Perhaps it is divine
Or sent from above
Most embrace the mystery
Laughing joyfully as they go
But some resist temptation
And fight to keep control
Not all understand this
But those who do will know
The more you deny the feeling
The stronger it will grow
My husband asked me to talk about how to ask a girl out without seeming creepy. Here is my advice!
“Secular culture tells us that, before we enter into marriage, we need to ‘try’ each other out sexually. This culture has a large focus on love in connection with sex and attraction. On the flip-side, legalistic purity culture often dictates that marriage is more about obligation, and some facets even claim that love is only a choice as opposed to a feeling.
In this episode, Rebecca seeks to unite what each culture gets right about sex and love while dispelling the incorrect and faulty assumptions found on both sides.”
