Rethinking Christian Sexuality with Dr. Juli Slattery

Putting “God” and “sex” in the same sentence makes most people feel uneasy. Some of us may view sex as something torrid, shameful or even painful. Others may embrace it as something wonderful and amazing. But is it holy?

Within the pages of Scripture, we see God’s divine design in our sexuality. Sexual intimacy and the ways we steward our bodies tell us something about God himself and what it means to find intimacy with him.

Join psychologist, author and the president of Authentic Intimacy, Dr. Juli Slattery, for this enlightening overview of God’s design for our sexuality, and how couples can live that design out in their marriage.

Cherish Your Spouse with Gary Thomas

Gary Thomas wants to help you take your relationship to the next level! In this free, five-part video series, he will show you how to support, adore, showcase and protect your spouse.

Husbands and wives know they are supposed to love each other, but they don’t always like or appreciate each other. When we cherish our spouse, we reach for that ideal where we are genuinely enjoying our spouse. Cherishing is different from infatuation because you cherish someone even though you know all their faults and weaknesses.

Watch as Gary describes practical ways to cherish your spouse: by paying attention to them, going to them first, supporting, encouraging rather than criticizing, and avoiding contempt. Cherishing is something we need to be intentional about doing – even if we do it imperfectly! The result will be a happier, more fulfilling relationship in marriage.
