Listen in as Jess talks with Linda Dillow (wife, missionary, author, speaker) about:
- Why Christian wives SHOULD talk and think about sex
- What misconceptions and lies Christian women believe
- How forgiveness and acceptance in Christ can sink down deeper than our heads, into our hearts
This episode’s Quick Mom Verse:
“I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. …Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. …And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” ~Galatians 5:16, 19-21, 24
