Becoming an ally to your child in a sexualized culture is one of the most important jobs you have as a parent, and it’s not that difficult. Through our Ally Series we’ve shared some of our best information to equip you. Today and over the next few weeks we’ll introduce you to some of our favorite resources to help you.
I can gravitate toward “paralysis by analysis,” that is, overthinking or doubting my preparedness. If this is how you lean, recognize that while preparedness is good, the reality is that today’s children are already immersed in a culture that is quite […]
Sexuality is powerful. In profound ways it connects the eyes, heart, mind, will, and emotions of a person. Stewarding our sexuality well is a life-long endeavor which actually begins in childhood. We live in a very sexualized culture, yet sexuality is generally a taboo topic, especially in the Christian church. We need to normalize conversations about it in order to become the ally our kids need.
In our last post we shared about the sacredness of sexuality. Now let’s turn our attention to sexuality’s power for both good and evil. This topic might be one of the most important we cover in the Ally Series, […]
One overarching goal of our Ally Series is to lead you to a God-honoring view of sex and sexuality. Sadly, most of us internalized a culture-driven view of it. It’s impossible to give away what we don’t have, and all of us desire for our kids to embrace God’s good design and purposes for sexuality.
Today is Good Friday, and we’re going to share some very good news about our sexuality. How does the truth of the gospel speak to the hard issues of life, including struggles related to sexuality? What does our sexuality have to do with Jesus’ life, death, […]
There are so many dangers in today’s sexualized culture, and working to protect your family can be daunting. You need God’s wisdom to guide you, His grace to sustain you, and a few allies of your own to help you.

My challenge to you through the Ally Series is:
Devote yourself regularly to studying and applying God’s Word and praying for your family
Connect at an emotional level with your kids and utilize […]
It’s one thing to send an army to distant shores to protect our homeland. It’s another thing to see the enemy on our shores, advancing down our streets. In today’s sexualized culture, protecting kids goes hand in hand with equipping them to face the enemy.
The assault on sexuality today is worse than you think. The level of depravity found in today’s porn is unfathomable. We’re way past the point of being able to trust filters alone to protect our loved ones, but the good news is we have a mighty God on our side.
When I was younger, getting from point A to point B wasn’t as easy as asking Siri. I never heard “rerouting” when I made a wrong turn. My navigational system consisted of tiny markings on a large piece of paper. Because my parents didn’t want me to end up in Timbuktu, they taught and modeled how to get directions off of a map.
In a sexualized culture, kids need information to prepare and equip them. They need to learn godly sexuality rather than worldly sexuality. They need direction, and parents are the best ones to guide them.
