‘91% of high school seniors say it is important to them to have a good marriage and family life, yet little is being done to educate and prepared them.’
Bachman, J.G., L.D. Johnston, and P.M. O’Malley (2008). Monitoring the Future: Questionnaire responses from the nation’s high school seniors, 2006. Ann Arbor, MI: Institute for Social Research, P.46.

‘Nearly all teens surveyed (92%) believe that young people should be taught about saving sex for marriage. A large majority of teens (84%)       believe that young people should be taught to be married before they have a child.’
Albert, B. With One Voice: America’s Adults and Teens Sound Off About Teen Pregnancy. Washington, DC: National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, 2007.pp 13-14.

These presentations inform and motivate parents regarding the importance of teen sexual health. Each presentation ombines eye-opening, research-based facts about widespread teen sexual activity and consequences with clear guidelines for encouraging teens to make healthy choices.

*A kind note from a parent that attended a training:
      
     There was so much useful info in your presentation I hardly know where to start! 
 
     I guess for me the most striking visual was the chart showing the steps leading from hugging to intercource, with the line drawn at making out. In a short, concise, one line delivery you summed up what this battle is all about.  I believe it will make.... it easier for my son to understand the "start with the end in mind" approach and allow us to have a more meaningful discussion about his choices. 
      
      You also educated me on how important it is for me to help my son set boundaries before he finds himself in a difficult situation. I always just used the "don't do it theory", but kids today know so much more than we did at this age. You helped me understand that I need to go into much more detail with him, and your straight forward explanation has given me the courage to do just that. I now also see why it is important to revisist the topic on a regular basis, at that same level of detail. 
 
     Thank you again for sharing such important "parent life-skills" with us.  S.B.

AVAILABLE NOW! The Spiritual Side of the Sex Conversation

This is a great resource for parents to process through for assistance with this conversation from Biblical perspective.

The parent training's that I offer are very in-depth. If you've attended one I think you would agree. Due to the intensity of the conversation it's truly not possible for me to fully provide the spiritual or the Biblical components of this message in the allotted time. So, I've created a 13-page PDF that will act as a solid resource for parents to lean into during their everyday conversations with their teens.

Here's a brief description of the topics covered:

  • The Biblical purpose of sex is multifaceted
  • Scripture does not connect sex to guilt
  • Sex is God-ordained and God-given
  • *Our identity is in Christ
  • Sex is good
  • Sex is more than just physical
  • Sex is intimacy
  • What if I've had sex and I'm not married?
  • But sexual sin is so tempting
  • Feelings aren't reliable
  • God wants to bless us
  • God wants us to be spiritually healthy
  • God wants us to be physically healthy
  • God wants us to be emotionally healthy
  • God calls us to show consideration and respect to others
  • God wrote the definition for love
  • God doesn't necessarily remove the consequences
  • God has a perfect plan for our lives
  • God wants us to be Jesus with skin on
  • God places red flags and warning signs in our life for our own good
  • How far can I go?
  • Does saving sex guarantee great sex?
  • God shows us grace
  • We need to pray!
  • We have to talk!

Now, if you know me, you are already laughing, because I used the word brief. As you can see, for those who don't know me, my definition of "brief" might be a little more intense than your definition of brief.

Yes! There is a fee for this resource. It's only $10.00, which is extremely generous.
