Sex and Valentines Day

between the sheetsValentines Day is rapidly approaching, romance is in the air, and there’s no better time to talk with today’s young people about sexual intimacy, specifically the “sexpectations” that many young people face around this holiday.

Don’t worry, we’ve got some helpful resources for you to have these conversations, both for YOUTH WORKERS and PARENTS.

Take a peek:

YOUTH WORKERS:

1. A Free Article: Read our brand new Youth Culture Window article titled, “Sexpectations,” not only providing you with a current glimpse into the messages young people are hearing today, but also providing you with three ways you can interact instead of overreacting.

2. A Ready-made Youth Talk: Download Youth Ministry just took my Sex Matters talk, and packaged it into a ready-to-go format you can use this week, with over 50 slides, the entire transcript, and small group questions. It’s everything you need for just a few bucks.

 3. A discounted book for students: Right now, my Sex Matters book is on sale for just $5 and change, or less than $5 each if you order it in bulk (see HERE). This book not only provides Biblical answers to the questions students are afraid to ask… it provides small group questions so you can discuss it with them. The perfect discipleship tool.

PARENTS
