We used to say, "If you don’t talk to your kids about sex, someone else will." These days, there is no more “if” about it! Whether it’s a movie, social media, or a friend at school, you can count on something or someone else talking to your kids about sex. How can you join the conversation? In this episode, Juli sits down with Sean McDowell to talk about helping your kids develop their worldview on sexuality—both in the opportunities you create and in the opportunities born out of everyday life and parenting.
In this episode, Juli sits down with Mark & Rosie Makinney to debunk misconceptions about pornography and marriage --many of them you may have been taught in church! Mark and Rosie have overcome porn addiction in their own marriage; since then, Rosie founded Fight for Love Ministries and Mark has become a certified sexual addiction therapist. This conversation is for pastors, husbands, wives, and anyone who has walked beside a loved one through porn addiction in marriage.
One of Hettie’s greatest fears was that she would be raped. In her home country of South Africa, it is estimated that over 30% of women will be raped in their lifetime. So when she was awakened one night by her husband, with hands tied behind his back and escorted by four strange men, she thought she was about to become a statistic. In this episode, Hettie Brittz sits down with Juli to share her story. Grab your coffee and settle in for one of the most amazing accounts of God’s power and presence that you will ever hear.
“We are being shaped by a culture that idolizes romantic and sexual fulfillment. And I just think—Jesus was fully human and he didn’t get married, have sex, or date anyone. So those things can’t be intrinsic to being human.” Sam Allberry joins Juli for a conversation about knowing the goodness of God even when it doesn’t feel good and how that has played out in his life as a celibate Christian and pastor. No matter what you're facing in your life right now, if you have doubts about whether or not God is good, grab your Java and pull up a chair. We’d love for you to join us.
In parenting, shame is unavoidable. As a mom or dad, at times you'll likely feel ashamed of how you’re doing as a parent or of how your child is behaving … or both! But when you use that shame to control your kids' behavior, you miss out on the opportunity to connect with them. Join Juli and David Eaton from Axis as they talk about how to offer your kids a you-can-tell-me-anything environment in your home—and live up to it!
