We have a special guest post for you, just in time for Valentine’s Day! Erin MacPherson, author of The Christian Mama’s Guide Series, and Kathi Lipp have joined forces to bring a spark (rather a red hot flame) to your marriage. May you and your valentine have a romantic evening!
With faith, hope, and lots of love,
Lori & Becky
It will not only help them to feel secure in who they are and where they are right now, but will also help them to understand the complexities of relationships in the future so that they can be the best husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, and grandparents that they can be.
What is it?
Have more sex.
I’ll bet you weren’t expecting that, were you?
But I stand by my assertion. Here’s why: Our marriages are the place where family grows, love thrives, people are changed and where God moves. But there is more: God also says that sex is an important part of marriage. It is the one thing we can give to our spouse that builds intimacy unlike anything else. Which leads me to the conclusion that the more sex you have, the stronger marriage you will have. (You can’t exactly stay distant from someone who sees you naked four times a week, can you?)
I think most people would agree that a healthy sex life leads to a strong marriage.
The next logical conclusion: When we have a strong marriage, our kids benefit. When we set an example for our kids of what a strong, intimate relationship looks like, then we are basically giving them a glimpse of what they can do to make their future relationships work. What’s more, when our kids know that mom and dad love each other and are making their marriage a priority, they feel secure, knowing they are not only loved, but that their family is stable.
So, there you have it: Logical proof that you should have more sex. (I’ll bet that many of the husbands reading this right now are bookmarking it to show their wives later.)
You’re in, right?
I hope so. And over the past few months, my co-author Kathi Lipp and I have been working on a series of resources that we think will help make marriages stronger, one hot night at a time:
- Our new e-book, ’10 Ideas to Inspire Red Hot Sex’ released this week and we hope it will bring you some inspiration.
- Or sign up for Friday Night Lights Off and get a free weekly email with a hot sex tip delivered to your inbox every Friday morning.
- Or join us on our Hot Mama Facebook page for inspiration from other women. (Cause like we say, friends don’t let friends wear granny panties.)
- And perhaps my favorite part of this whole series, join us for the 50 Shades of Grey Movie Challenge. Basically, we’re challenging all of our friends to skip the movie (which we find completely degrading) and stay home to have sex with their husbands instead. Wholesome… and so much more fun.
We would love for you to join us in intentionally investing in your marriage this year. It starts tonight. All you have to do is have a little fun with your spouse.
And in doing so, you two can change the world.
