Sex is everything. Sex is nothing. So which is it? The way some people talk, you'd think sex is like food--three meals a day or else we starve and die. On the other hand, you know sex definitely isn't nothing. It's too potent, too instinctive to simply deny. Sooner or later, everybody deals with it. This journal, What (Almost) Nobody Will Tell You About Sex, is a whole-person approach to your sexuality and God. In other words, sex is more than pelvises and plumbing. Sexuality is woven throughout all of you--your body, your mind, your spirit. It's the way we're wired. The way God wired us. Which means that if you want the ultimate enjoyment from sex--the right person, the right time, and the right motives--you've got to appreciate and work with that body-mind-spirit connection. This journal helps you do just that, with large doses of your own perceptions about sexuality and insight from the Bible--insight that just may surprise you, from the One who wired you to be a sexual being in the first place. Here's some of the stuff you'll find inside: *Sex talk--Cultural and Biblical messages about sex. *Sexual identity--How people think about sexuality *Intimacy--Dating and nonsexual closeness *Desire--The difference between appetites and needs *Boundaries--How far is too far? *Responsibility--Our sexual responsibilities to God and each other *Do-overs -- Mercy, repentance, forgiveness, and restoration
