Mom, Did You Wait?

I was driving down the highway listening to the familiar voice of Dr. James Dobson. Suddenly the host asked his guest, “What is the most common question a young girl will ask her mom about sex?” Without delay the woman responded, “Mom, did you wait?” I pulled my minivan to the side of the highway and allowed ten years of tremendous denial and grief engulf me. I reached for my brand new baby girl in the back seat and held her as […]

I’m tickled silly pink to be bringing you an all-new event for teen girls and their moms. It’s also going to be a great event for women who lead youth groups to bring girls to, and we’ve figured out how to offer group rates just for you. On-line dating is a $2.5 billion industry and with mediums like Seventeen magazine (largely read by middle school girls) introducing on-line dating to teens. That’s nuts!  It’s imperative that we talk to teen girls […]

I said goodbye to my virginity when I was fifteen. How old were you? If you had it to do over again, would you wait? I would. I knew none of the physical consequences of choosing to have sex early, but I was depressed. I felt like I’d given something precious away and could never have it back. That’s why I’ve devoted my life to spreading the idea that sex is worthy of something more than a casual hookup. Is […]

“Good sex comes to those who wait.” That was last week’s claim by Her•meneutics blogger Courtney Reissig. Only, I should clarify that she ended the sentence with a question mark: “Good sex comes to those who wait?” And then her words decried the efforts of the abstinence and purity movement—my efforts, really—charging that we are guilty of “incentivizing abstinence with personal pleasure.” To her credit, Courtney—whose work I’ve examined rather thoroughly and I’m fairly certain that if we shared a cup of […]

In January And The Bride Wore White will be 15 years old!  We figured what better way to celebrate than by releasing an all-new video curriculum and on-line leader’s guide? These will be made available for FREE just like my new Get Lost video series released last year. We headed into the studio last week to film the series. Can I tell you? We had SO MUCH FUN! You won’t want to miss it. I was privileged to share my heart for […]

Woman Holding Onto Man's Leg

This may be the hardest blog post I’ve ever written. Single women have been writing to me this week with one question: “How can I satisfy my sexual desire if I’m destined to remain single my whole life?” In part, this question is coming from women who’ve recently read Pulling Back The Shades, a candid look at erotica, intimacy, and the longings of a woman’s heart, which I co-authored with Dr Juli Slattery. But the truth is the question has […]

“Have you had sex with this man?” Dannah Gresh asked that question of an audience staring at a big screen photo of NFL football player Tim Tebow during TEDxPSU on March 16th. The audience of nine hundred, mostly Penn State University students, was challenged to consider if it was possibly intolerance of virginity that led the media to print the question along with the offer of a one million dollar ransom for anyone who could prove they’d taken Tebow’s virginity. She […]
