Some topics that CPCW covers are relevant to lot of parents and a lot of kids, but the topic of sexuality is relevant to ALL parents and ALL kids. We cannot escape this issue in our families and our friendship circles.

So who defines our sexuality?

Our celebrities, our politicians, our teachers and school administrators, our friends, our feelings… or God.

If we want to call ourselves Christ followers, the answer to that question must be God because He designed our sexuality. And the parameters He places around it in His Word are not there to oppress us and deny our authentic selves. Those parameters exist to bless us and to bring us freedom.

In part 2 of a 4-part series on sexuality, Catherine discusses the loving parameters that God places around our sexuality to protect us and how can we communicate Biblical sexuality to our kids.

Joining her again is Erin Barry, an author, speaker, counselor, and educational consultant. Erin has a bachelor’s degree in education, a master’s degree in counseling, and is working on her doctorate in Christian counseling with an emphasis on the topic of sexuality. Erin and her husband Brett are founders of The Home Educated Mind, a Christ-centered community dedicated to providing materials and support for Christian parents.

A Prayer for Broken Hearts - Your Daily Prayer - November 28

Feeling heartbroken is probably one of the worst pains we endure as humans. It’s an outwardly unseen injury, a wound so deep, no one else can remove the pain from us no matter how many sweet, comforting words they speak to us.
