Strong Tower Mental Health with Heidi Mortenson

Feb 20, 2023

We hear the myth that if you have more sex it will create more intimacy in your marriage. Or the myth that men want sex more than women. What does God say about this? What if you have a trauma history or had multiple partners or struggled with a porn addiction?  In this episode, you will hear from the amazing and gentle teacher and author Ruth Buezis. She wrote the book Awaken Love and teaches classes to men and women about sex. She goes directly to the source, the Word of God and debunks the myths right away to reveal the powerful truth Song of Solomon shows. You will hear about difficult topics like rape in marriage, not just laying there and have sex to get through it but align with God’s design for you. God’s real truth for marriage is surprising and it shows how much the world has clouded our view of sex. God designed us to embrace sex as a discovery of one another, an invitation and beautiful dance of intimacy, just like Jesus wants with us. There is so much breakthrough and freedom from this episode, no matter your history with sex or if you are married or single.  Be awakened to God’s natural design for sex in marriage and the beautiful metaphors that the Bible reveals for each one of us individually. Our spouse will not be perfect, but we can pursue God’s design for ourselves and watch as this impact intimacy in our relationships.

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”. ~Genesis 2:24

“Let us get up early to the vineyards; Let us see if the vine has budded, Whether the grape blossoms are open, And the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.” ~Song of Solomon 7:12
