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 […]

Can spiritual women also be sexually satisfied? It’s a sad question to have to ask, but the incomplete manner in which the Church has answered sexual questions does mandate that we discuss it. If you’re one of my more modest followers, please don’t be disappointed but this article isn’t for you. However, if you’re a spiritual woman trying desperately to make sense of sexual desires and often finding answers outside of the Church, read on! I don’t want you to […]

RAISING SEXUALLY PURE KIDS

I’m looking for some parents who want to talk about sex with their kids. A majority of parents are afraid to talk about it. I just completed focus groups in 11 cities and was blown away by how often mothers said something like, “If I don’t talk to her about _________, she won’t struggle with temptation.” This is a great lie. So, I pushed a little harder on this to see just how far mothers were going to “protect” their children. […]

interns

Here’s the thing. We don’t have “interns” at Pure Freedom. Event speakers, content writers, social media specialists, web designers, road managers, and administrative professionals, yes…but no interns. Interns follow orders and get coffee. We think there are more important and creative things to be done! So although we may send you on the occasional Starbucks run, we think your time here is better spent in other ways. Like ministering to thousands of tween girls at an SKG live event, creating […]

Earlier this week, I opened my blog to moderate comments on a blog titled “Was Mary A Virgin?” Suddenly, I was being accused of “slut-shaming” for using the word virgin. What!? It was the VIRGIN Mary who I was writing about! The comments—including “This is slut shaming… Wrapped up in a pretty package” and “Such dialogue and scrutiny over a woman’s virginity (aka ‘purity’) only feeds into patriarchal-based slut shaming”—were just the crest of a wave of frustration I’ve heard all year long as those following me […]

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 […]

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 […]
