 Show Notes:

1. Be prepared. Think through what you want to share before you share it.

2. Pray.
3. Make the conversation special.
4. Use actual names of body parts. (Diagrams can be helpful)
5. Use foundational scriptures that point back to God’s design for sex inside of marriage. Examples: 1 Corinthians 7:2 , Hebrews 13:4
6. Treat every question (even the crazy ones) as completely natural.
7. Leave the conversation open ended, ask follow up questions.
8. Remember you’re only beginning the conversation. Follow up.
