#385: How To Wrestle With God Over Questions of Sex & Sexuality

Come deconstruct with us for 40 minutes or so. Yep, that's right. If we can’t ask hard questions about the principles we’ve shared in the last two episodes, then we’re only representing the truth of God and not the heart of God, which is to invite you to wrestle with His word and with Him until you’re satisfied—and He is the only One who can satisfy.

Juli and Hannah discuss the pain caused by misapplied Christian teaching and when we don't allow others to wrestle with sexual pain and brokenness.

Bonus! #384:Do You Empower Your Husband or Enable Him? (The Difference is BIG)

Nobody said marriage would be easy. It takes great courage, strength and self-control to be the woman God has called you to be in your marriage. While some of us are tempted to use our power to control or manipulate (a temporary fix at best), others shrink back and say, “I guess this is as good as it gets.” But neither of these responses honor God or build intimacy with your husband. Ready to try a better way?

P.S. Who is Juli's special guest? It’s her hero himself: Mike Slattery is on the mic!

#382: Why We're Not Afraid to Ask Hard Questions About Sex & Christianity

If you feel the pressure to believe that Christians are close-minded and a growing minority, you’re in for an encouraging surprise. Join Juli and Rebecca McLaughlin, author of Confronting Christianity, to hear why Christianity can not only withstand the toughest questions, but how they become signposts that point people to Jesus.

#381: "Show It Off" or "Cover It Up": Messages That Shape Our Body Image

What messages have you been told about your body and your sexuality?  

At the coffee shop with Juli are two friends; join these women from different cultures for a candid conversation about what they were told and believed about their sexuality. Their stories are unique, but they share a common thread: the messages were powerful and confusing. Listen in to hear how God brings redemption to their lives to walk free from body shame.

A White theological understanding of sexuality cannot be the only voice. You have to leave room for our voice, for our experiences... If you leave room for our voice too, we find a more robust, a more consistent biblical understanding of sexuality. –Dawn Jones

Guests: Danisa Suarez, LPC, MA and Dawn Jones, LPC, MA
