Healthy Sex (Part 3 of 3): Sexual Rejection and How to Get Through It

Sexual rejection

Rejection strikes at the core of your identity, especially when we are talking about sexual rejection.  Since sex is such an intimate act, rejection is amplified and taken very personal. So what do you do when your partner says no? What if you are the one saying no for legit reasons, but feel really guilty for doing so?  What do you do when you’re just not on the same page sexually and it’s leading to conflict or distance?  Here are a few tried and true ways to help stave off rejection and work towards a better sex life as a couple.  Continue reading “Healthy Sex (Part 3 of 3): Sexual Rejection and How to Get Through It”

Healthy Sex (Part 1 of 3): What is Sex?

Couple Kissing

I was counseling with a 25 year old guy one day at the church. (I am a pastor for those of you who didn’t know.)  He was a leader and relatively new husband of about two years.  I have a lot of respect for him.  He was the kind of guy you want your daughter to marry; good looking, chivalrous, godly, kind, funny, and personable.  On the outside, everything looked great… until I dug a little deeper.  Continue reading “Healthy Sex (Part 1 of 3): What is Sex?”

Defining Masculinity

cat-mane-wild

There’s been a lot of press around Mark Driscoll lately and the resurfacing of some of his comments about the weak nature of men in America, particularly in the church.  While I do not agree with his stance, I do want to approach the critical question he poses: what does a man who is following Jesus called to look and act like?  Does he become a tame, domesticated man like Driscoll believes most of the church has become?  Or does he have to be an angry Christian with machismo tendencies?  Like most things, what gets the press are the polarized opinions of a small few.  I by no means think my thoughts are the perfect middle, but I want to throw in a few thoughts on what defining masculinity looks like for those trying to follow Jesus.

Put Your Kids Second

feet

So I’m a relatively new dad.  I have a beautiful two year old whom my wife and I love and adore more than anything in this world.  And that’s the problem sometimes.  It is so easy for parents to get wrapped up into the lives of their children and prioritize them over all else.  What’s wrong with that some of you may ask?

Everything.  And here’s why.

The Voices In Your Head

Voices

Do you ever hear voices in your head?  Those subtle but significant whispers can often act as the rudder of your martial ship if you allow them to.  A lot of times in a marriage, these voices have a strong marital influence, and you don’t even realize that they are there.  In fact, if you don’t pay attention, you won’t even realize whose voices they are… and this can be extremely dangerous.  Although if you have the right voices, then you could never be in a better spot marriage-wise.  So what voices are we talking about and how do we determine who gets a say?
