Let's talk about sex! There I said it. the forbidden "S" word. (Sorry Mom and Dad!)
Why, as Christians, are we afraid to talk about sex? Its not a dirty word. It's sex. God gave us this special, intimate, amazing, wondrous thing that is to be shared between a man and his wife. So why not talk about it? Let's talk about what we can do to make it better... and make it happen more often.
When we make our sex-life a priority, you are making your marriage a priority.

Candles just set the mood. It's hard to get in the mood with all the lights on. We don't want our flaws highlighted, and feeling insecure is not going to help make anyone feel sexy. And there's a lack of intimacy with all the lights off. You can't look at each other in the eyes, and things might just get clumsy and awkward in the dark. Everyone feels sexier in the flattering, soft glow of candle light. But for me, personally, most candles give me a headache. The artificial fragrances and chemicals that make up most candles don't do me any good. These naturally scented candles are perfect for my sensitive nose... and set the mood just right for sexy time!
This book is revolutionary for married Christian couples. A couple of years ago on a marriage retreat with our church, friends of ours (a married couple) recommended this book.
"Embark on a verse-by-verse exploration of the Bible's very own manual on sex and passion: the Song of Solomon. You and your spouse will discover the freedom, holiness, and beauty of sex in marriage and learn why it all begins with a servant's heart."
