#342: The Good Gift of Courage (And Why You Need It)

We talk often on Java with Juli about our culture’s confusing messages around sexuality. But today’s guest, Russell Moore, contends that we’re not so much confused about what is true or right as we are fearful; fearful of standing alone, fearful of swimming against the cultural tide. In this episode, hear how the gift of courage is not about bravado, performance, or getting on one's soapbox. Instead, courage is born in the unseen moments when we are utterly dependent on God—moments where He shapes us for His glory and also for the benefit of generations to come.

#341: When Staying Married Feels Impossible

Circumstances in Laurie’s life started triggering her memories of childhood sexual abuse. Her lifelong struggle with same-sex attraction flared.  Alone on a silent retreat, she recommitted herself to God and to her husband Matt.  But she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to be sexually intimate with him again. 

Matt wanted a marriage with the comforts of sexual intimacy and to be pursued physically by his wife, yet he knew forcing Laurie to do either would not only be ineffective, but unchristlike as well.  This marriage felt impossible.

Does your marriage feel impossible, too? Find hope here.

Guests: Matt and Laurie Krieg

#340: We Were Wrong About Modesty

The word “modesty” makes us cringe these days, and it’s easy to understand why: For years it’s been associated with a prudish culture of shame and blame. We hear the word and immediately think it’s an issue about women and skirt length, but Bible passages that speak to modesty focus on something else: The heart. (So… we think that makes it an issue for you, too, fellas.) Join Juli and Dannah Gresh for a conversation about how we’ve misapplied the meaning of modesty and how we can do better in the future.

#339: How to Have Hard Conversations with (Facebook) Friends

If you were standing in front of a crowd of 300 to speak, how carefully would you craft your words? Okay, so you’re actually at home alone with your smartphone, but on social media, you may as well be in front of a stadium full of people! Today Juli and her guest, Daniel Darling, talk about using our online conversations to do good, learning to “see” the person (loved by God) behind every post, and discerning when to post and when not to. Grab your Java and join us!

#338: Single and Sexual

As a single person, your sexuality isn’t defined by a list of “do's and don’ts” or captured by simplistic questions like, “What does the Bible say about masturbation?” Your sexuality—single or married—is ultimately more about relational intimacy than what you do with your body. So how DO you express healthy sexuality in your friendships and dating relationships? We’re glad you asked. Join Juli and Dr. Doug Rosenau for part two of this conversation about the questions you’re too embarrassed to ask about sex.
