I had a conversation recently with one of my married daughters about the beauty and passion of marital intimacy. She was expressing her thankfulness for having been brought up with a healthy view of sexuality.
A few years ago, during her engagement, this same daughter and I became especially close, as we discussed what a treasure she had coming! In the words of Cora Crawley, the marriage bed is “great fun!” I would not trade these conversations for the world!

Christian parents, above all others, should make sure they communicate to their children that marriage is a song filled with passion, security, excitement, satisfaction, oneness, and mystery! People who believe that the world’s version of sex is more exciting than God’s version are either deceived or they’ve been doing it wrong! And both distortions, put them at risk for temptation.
And, for the record, couples who reject the “cheap and empty” aren’t being prudish; they’ve just got something better! And they’re willing to do whatever it takes to protect it!
