A LITTLE OF MY STORY
I'm a girl from the Middle of Nowhere, Idaho. I was raised by wonderful Christian parents who should win every parenting award other than "sex education in the home." I've made it my life's mission to be the sex educator I so desperately needed.
Growing up, I was taught that sex was holy within marriage and sinful outside of it. Everything else I knew about sex (which, to be fair, was very little) came from hushed lunchroom conversations at school.
As I grew into adulthood and started dating seriously, I began to recognize just how insufficient (and unreliable) my sex education had been. I decided to take my education into my own hands, which eventually led to a master's in Marriage, Family, & Human Development with an emphasis in Healthy Sexuality.
And I want the same for you.
Like so many of you, I have faced sexual shame as a less-than-educated single Christian, body insecurity, struggles to keep my boundaries in dating relationship, and challenges in my marital sexual relationship. These struggles are normal.
But, when I faced these challenges, I struggled to find many research- and faith-based resources to help me through them.
Several years, a master's degree in Marriage, Family, and Human Development and thousands of hours sex research later, I have vowed to become the sex educator that I so desperately needed. And maybe I can be that for you.
Spicy foods (it's a pregnancy thing), Madam Secretary, kind humans, pancakes absolutely swimming in buttermilk syrup, stretchy pants + oversized t-shirts, all the cuddles I can get.
I can't please everyone. It's easier (and much more effective) to just say what I actually mean. Following Jesus is simpler than we often make it. True love is worth the effort it requires.
Early mornings, rude people on social media, shrimp & lobster (I promise it doesn't matter how you prepare it), morning sickness, scrubbing the shower, using guilt to encourage abstinence.
Food is meant to be enjoyed. Sex is a gift from God. Jesus is the best thing to ever happen to me. Being kind to people is really not that difficult. Clothes should be comfy first, then cute.
