Big Guy would approach me for sex. My response was usually some variation of no—rolling my eyes, listing all the things I need to get done first, or just saying the word “no.”
Quite often, after my negative response I would start to think about the possibility of sex. I wonder why I don’t think about sex like he does? I like sex well enough once we’re doing it. Hmm.

The biggest hurdle plus-size women face in the marriage bed isn’t our bodies . It is our feelings about our weight and size.
It is possible to enjoy a thriving marriage bed as a plus-size woman.

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.
I am so excited!
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.

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 →
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 →
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).
I’m so excited to get to share with you about a new resource that will be launching six weeks from today: a podcast about sex, just for Christian wives.
I’ve been experiencing the usual busy-ness of December. The first few weeks are crunch time at work, and then I run into all the things I need to do to prepare for Christmas celebrations. Read More →
