Top 10

  1. Sex and the family – Invest in your sex life for it’s own many benefits. And for the many blessings it brings your family as well.
  2. Maintenance sex – Our marriage cannot thrive on maintenance sex alone. But learn to incorporate it to maintain a strong foundation for your marriage throughout the many changing and often difficult seasons of life.
  3. Harms of sexualizing all beauty – It’s a mistake to assume all beauty must be sexualized. Be captivated and let human beauty stir your soul without reducing it to mere sexual desire.
  4. What the hell? – Fight for your marriage by recognizing and boldly resisting the evil set against it. Your marriage is meant to be a light in a dark world.
  5. Our unchangeable past – While we cannot change our past, we can learn from it and discover all the good God still has in store for us.
  6. Respecting the power of sex– God created us as sexual beings. Do not underestimate this. Learn to respect the power of sex and use it for good.
  7. Godly sorrow – Don’t run from feeling bad. But let godly sorrow motivate you to change toward the better.
  8. Digging up our sexual energy – Don’t waste your sexual energy by keeping it hidden. Boldly dig it up, cultivate it, and use it for good.
  9. Sex and stress – Allow sex to provide relief and restoration to your soul in the midst of stressful days. And don’t let stress rob you of this gift.
  10. Sex, grief, and comfort – One of the many benefits of sex is to speak comfort and healing into the depths of our souls. Learn to embrace this as God’s gift even during times of heartache and grief.

Honorable mention

  • The emperor’s clothes  – We must not think so highly of ourselves, or value public opinion to the degree, that we miss the simple voice of reason and reality right in front of us. Listen to the simple voice of truth, and speak up yourself whenever necessary.
  • A good fight – Check your pride regularly. And be willing to fight a good fight when your strength is needed to bring more life and beauty into the world.
  • The princess and the dragon – Stand firm when the one you love is also the one attacking you. Learn to see beneath her dragon to the pain, suffering, and tenderness of her true heart. Fight courageously and rescue the beauty.
  • A time to rebel – Live quiet and peaceable lives whenever possible. And rebel courageously when it’s time to restore God’s goodness.

Best of any year

  • Questioning traditions – Traditions are clues into our story and must be questioned to discover the truths they contain. What does it mean to hold to this tradition?
  • Palpable love – It’s not enough to know we are loved. We want to feel and experience love. It’s this palpable love that communicates the depth and sincerity of our love.
  • Sex as a decision to love – Practice true lovemaking – letting sex be a decision to love and not based merely on how you feel.
