Often what we think about sex gets in the way of great sex. One of the things that we’ve talked about repeatedly this month is how a big roadblock to orgasm for women is THINKING the wrong way about sex–specifically thinking that intercourse=sex, and anything else is “extra” or “bonus”. #intimacyinmarriage #healthyintimacy #happymarriages #healthymarriage #youarenotbroken #womenshealth #tolovehonorandvacuum

As Christians, a lot of the cultural ideas that we get about our periods derive from Old Testament laws that called periods “unclean.” Why did God call periods unclean? Why were women unclean after having babies? What does this tell us about how God sees women’s bodies? Does God think we’re gross? Does He consider us “unclean” more than men are unclean? Should women feel shame? #womenshealth #oldtestament #biblicalteaching #tolovehonorandvacuum Intimacy In Marriage, Biblical Marriage, Marriage Advice, Old Testament Bible, Low Libido, Love You Husband, Christian Marriage, Christians, Things To Know

One of the most damaging and unbiblical “Christian” books on marriage is Debi Pearl’s Created to Be His Helpmeet. Debi Pearl’s view of submission teaches women to allow themselves to be abused, rather than teaches women to seek God’s will, God’s plan, and God’s glory. #abuseinmarriage #biblicalmarriage #unbiblicalchristianbooks #damagingadvice #submissioninmarriage #Godatthecentre #tolovehonorandvacuum Marriage Issues, Marriage Advice, Relationship Advice, Relationships, Verbal Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Christian Couples, Christian Marriage

The title of this post may sound corny, but do you remember that verse about awakening love in Song of Solomon? Many of us have never had our “love” truly awakened. For some of us “love” was awakened too early, or too abruptly, and so it didn’t truly awake at all. #songofsolomon #biblicalmarriage #healthymarriage #tolovehonorandvacuum Intimacy In Marriage, Biblical Marriage, Marriage Relationship, Marriage Advice, Relationships, Christian Couples, Christian Wife, Christian Marriage, Waiting For Marriage
