Practical Ways to Enjoy Plus-Size Sexual Intimacy

The biggest hurdle plus-size women face in the marriage bed isn’t our bodies . It is our feelings about our weight and size.

In my previous post, I reminded you that  you are fearfully and wonderfully made. God’s gift of sexual intimacy in marriage is for you just as it is for other women.

It is possible to enjoy a thriving marriage bed as a plus-size woman.

God designed us to enjoy sexual intimacy in the marriage bed—but that doesn’t mean it is always going to be a bed of roses.

Don't fear transformation in your marriage.

A caterpillar has its own charm, but God’s desire is for that caterpillar to experience a transformation and become a butterfly.

I doubt that the caterpillar knows to expect a transformation, but it does know to do the task it faces: spin the cocoon that allows the transformation to occur.

It emerges, with a brand new beauty and wings to fly.

I’ve been thinking about butterflies this week. Butterflies and death.

Preparing for Launch!

I am so excited!

The new podcast I’m doing with the women behind Bonny’s Oysterbed 7, Calm.Healthy.Sexy., and Hot, Holy & Humorous launches on February 14.

That’s Valentine’s Day, folks—and it’s one week from today!

I expect it will take us a few episodes to hit our stride, but we are so ready for you to join us around the virtual table for a woman-to-woman chat about sexual intimacy in marriage.

We’ve recorded episodes on getting in the mood, stress, positions, exercise and sex, female sexual response, and more—and we have an awesome list of topics for future episodes.

If you’d like to be notified when new episodes go live, you can subscribe at sexchatforchristianwives.com. Also, follow our social media accounts:

I’d like to ask for continuing prayers as we prepare for our launch.

We are so excited that we have a little preview for you. Click here to listen to our first episode, Getting in the Mood.

Enjoy!

You can conquer the learning curve!

I’ve been busy preparing for our podcast launch.

Much of the work has come naturally and is more fun than it is work: social media planning and posting, brainstorming ideas for podcast episodes, writing program notes, and having and recording our conversations about sexual intimacy in Christian marriages.

One thing, however, has been a challenge for me: sound editing. I came to this with absolutely no experience working with sound. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Read More →

 

Escape to the mountains. Genesis 19:17

Finding encouragement for marriage growth in the bible isn’t exactly unexpected. However, I was somewhat surprised to find such encouragement as I was reading about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Read More →

What is your husband saying that you might be misunderstanding?

Alone in the car for a long drive recently, I turned on the radio to find some music that would help me stay alert.

I landed on a classic oldies station (meaning every single song was something from my youth).

How can you nurture your sexual desire?

When I was young, I devoured the entire reproduction shelf in the children’s department at the library. My body was changing, and I wanted to know everything about those changes—and about sex.

It’s more than a little ironic that a lack of information contributed to the sex issues I had for years. Read More →

 

Take a step toward confession and repentance.

Note: If your husband is in unrepentant and on-going sin against you, if you are in an intentional season of healing that requires you to be able to say no to sex, or if you are experiencing medical issues that interfere with sexual intimacy, this post is not for you.

For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Psalm 51:3

I’ve said before that when it comes to sexual intimacy, it isn’t always wrong to say no—but it IS wrong to always say no.

Sex is an important part of God’s design for marriage. Sex provides us a unique—and totally awesome—pleasure. It helps us develop intimacy and oneness with each other. It provides a means of connection unlike any other. When sexual intimacy is lacking in our marriages, we miss out on one of God’s most amazing gifts to us. Read More →
