“Teaching our kids about their sexuality needs to be more than just one ‘Birds and the Bees’ talk, but instead an ongoing conversation that will last their whole lives.” Today, Lee sits down for a frank conversation with Dr. Jennifer Degler about sexuality (ours and theirs). Grab your earbuds and buckle up for an important, equipping conversation for praying moms to help their families navigate sexuality in a holy and God honoring way.
3 Important Things for Parents to Pray Regarding Their Kids Sexuality
1. Pray that your children would recognize they are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Including their genital and their sexual impulses)
Psalm 139:14: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
2. Pray they would learn to control their bodies in a way that is holy and honorable.
1 Thessalonians 4:4: Each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable.”
3. Pray that we would be courageous mothers with biblical thinking about sex.
