What The Bible Says About Sex + How To Have “The Talk”

Wondering how to talk to your daughters about sex? Struggling with knowing what to say or how to not sound “lame”? You’re not alone!

I’m in a season of littles right now, but as our kids get older, it will become necessary to talk to them about sex. But how? What do you say? How do you keep it age appropriate? And what does the Bible even say about sex?

To The Mama With A Newborn In Church

You’re nervous, I know. Your baby is still unpredictable. Sometimes she sleeps for 2 hours, but sometimes it’s only 15 minutes and she wakes up screaming.

He went 3 hours without eating the other day, but other times, he’s hungry every 30 minutes. “I don’t want to feed him all during church,” you’ve said. You’re scared to feed with all those people around (“what if she pulls the blanket off?”), but you don’t want to be exiled to the nursery, either.

And on that note, there are so many people around. What if he gets sick? His immune system is still so new. Or what if her diaper leaks and I don’t realize it before it’s too late? Do I need to take a change of clothes for me, too?

What if he cries? What if she screams? Should I just leave him in the nursery? Will people judge me if I bring her into the sanctuary? How do I take care of a newborn in church?

Maybe we should just stay home.

To The Christian On Their First Day Of College

Look at you! You graduated high school; congratulations! You had an awesome summer of freedom, you attended new student orientation, you have the greatest roommate and no classes before 10 AM, so you’re ready to take on college. You feel unstoppable, like the world is at your fingertips. And in many ways, that is true.

You will love college. You will find your people and your major, your favorite spots in the library, the greatest intramurals. You will figure out which days the caf is not worth it, and which restaurants in the student center will make you sick every time. (Why did Chinese food on a college campus seem like a good idea?)

But there’s something I need you to remember. This is, and I’m risking a cliche here, the beginning of the rest of your life. Start it with Christ as the foundation, or it will crumble. Here is a letter, from my heart to yours.

An open letter to the Christian on their first day of college.
