Talking openly and honestly about sexuality within our families sets the stage for a healthier development of sexuality throughout childhood and adolescence, especially in Christian households where we are teaching the virtue of purity. This workshop by Tim and Dr. Jennifer Konzen details God’s plan for sexuality, what influences the development of sexuality, and how to have those sticky, important conversations with our children of all ages about such a vulnerable topic. Areas covered will include:
- God’s view of sexuality
- Sexual Development
- Negative Events in Psychosexual Development
- “The Talk”
- Challenging topics: Pornography, Masturbation, and Same-sex Attraction
- Purity and Holiness
- Great Conversations
This online class will take place on Friday, February 26 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. For more information or the link to attend, contact your Youth & Family leader.
