Online Book Studies

New Groups Start in June!

At Authentic Intimacy, we understand it may be difficult to find community around sensitive topics like sexuality. Because of this, we are excited to be able to offer various online weekly book studies for men and women throughout the year.

We invite you to join together with others in our community to dive into a deeper understanding of who God is and why He cares about your sexuality. Feel free to invite your friends! Below is a list of the studies that we are offering.

 

Each study includes:

  • Live weekly Zoom meetings with an AI trained leader
  • Book or PDF included (additional fee for shipping)
  • One free Java Pack 
  • Curriculum (videos where applicable)
  • One Q&A with Juli Slattery or the author of the book
  • Access to a Private Online Group
  • 11 people (max, 3 min.*) *If a group does not fill to the min., you may join a future group.

Price: $39 (non-members), AI members receive 25% discount (be sure to use your member code at check-out)

This is a bundled price that includes the book or PDF. If you already have a book, we encourage you to give your new copy to a friend.

"Freedom from Porn" for women

Struggling with pornography? You're not alone. As the number of women addicted to pornography rises, women need help finding freedom from sexual shame and brokenness. Join other women struggling with unwanted sexual behavior and learn how to begin this journey towards healing. This study is a unique opportunity to go through the manuscript of the book "Freedom from Porn for Women" that our Director of Discipleship, Joy Skarka, is currently writing. The group will be led by a trained leader who has previously gone through the group. Together, you will learn with other women what it means to begin your journey to live in freedom from pornography.

Sex and the Single Girl 

Whereas most sexuality studies for singles focus solely on purity—simply offering a “don’t do it” or “just wait” message—Sex and the Single Girl presents a broader understanding of what it means to honor God with our sexuality. This resource will equip single women to understand their sexuality, trust the Lord for redemption and healing, and stand against the cultural trends that marginalize and compromise sexuality.
