There are plenty of bad things to say about the release of the Fifty Shades Darker movie but, to be honest, I don’t have the stomach for it. Do you? Our social media feed is filled with negativity, harsh words and bad news. Is yours?

The last thing we want to do right now is flood the Authentic Intimacy community with yet another thing to be worried and argumentative about. So, I’ve been asking the Lord, “How can we talk about this movie in a positive light? Is there any good news?”

"If God gives you the chance to talk to someone about 50 Shades, remember that the ultimate goal isn’t to convince them that the movie is bad, but that God is good."

- Dr. Juli Slattery


"The women we interact with don’t ultimately need to hear why 50 Shades Darker is dangerous. They need to know they are not alone and that there is a Jesus who offers living water. This is essentially what Jesus told us to do. Go out and make disciples." 

- Dr. Juli Slatterty
