4 years ago, March 2012, I started writing for the low sex drive Christian wife. There were several amazing Christian sex-positive blogs at that time, but none of them had a low libido wife’s perspective on the marriage bed.
God purposed me to speak and write about intimate issues of womanhood and wifedom. I was in fifth grade the first time I was asked questions about ‘becoming a woman’ by my other 10 year old friends. Apparently, their moms weren’t forthcoming. Since I was the girl with visual evidence of early maturity and had a mom who gave me correct information, I became wikipedia on the playground.
4 decades later, I’m still seeing women starved for godly information about their sexuality; physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
I’ve tried to be genuine about our marriage difficulties and intelligent in writing about the many influences on my libido. My experience can reflect most any wife’s. I’m nothing special, just a woman who desperately wanted a united marriage to honor Christ and yes, to be happy not just holy.
I chased after the physical nature of sexual desire. But, that’s not where I found my answer. God slowly revealed sexual intimacy is spiritual. It’s a quiet discovery that climaxes into the loudest significance.
If you have gleaned any bit of insight from my journey and musings, God gets all the glory. I am so grateful he’s allowed me to be his vessel.
God has more in store for sex talk at OysterBed7. I’m returning to school to finish my Master’s in Family and Marriage Therapy and will continue writing along the way. But, remember until I get that degree I am not a licensed counselor.
For the month of March, I’ll be sending you my favorite posts from the past four years. Posts you may have missed along the way.
The greatest anniversary gift you could give me is to say a prayer that God would grant me the wisdom of Solomon in writing about sexual intimacy in marriage for the low libido wife.
I’m so grateful for you.
If this is your first time visiting OysterBed7, Welcome!
