Here’s What I’ve Wanted to “Uncover” For You!

The Great Sex Rescue Cover Reveal
Merchandise is Here!

Can I just be super excited–like super-jumping-up-and-down excited, today?

I have something really fun to share with you all, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to share it, because it really can’t be a post, in and of itself.

But I couldn’t wait anymore, and so I decided to combine it with a bunch of other things I have to share with you and just make a newsy, breezy post.

And there are some affiliate links below!

So here it is.

Are you ready?

The Great Sex Rescue is available for pre-order!

THIS is what has been taking most of our time in the last year. So many of you participated in our survey of 20,000 Christian women–and so many of you helped me recruit even more people to take the survey!

And THIS is the book I’ve always wanted to write–all the teachings and beliefs that have wrecked sex for couples, and how we can reclaim what God intended.

You’ll read it and it will be like a breath of fresh air, a validation, a relief. You’ll see that you’re not alone, that the reason that sex has been difficult for you is rooted in what we’ve been taught. And also–that you don’t need to stay stuck!

And you want to know something else I just discovered?

It’s coming out in hardcover, too!

Along with the normal paperback, kindle version, and audio version (that I get to narrate!), they’re also releasing a hardcover version. That means the publisher really believes in this book.

And you can pre-order it now and you’re guaranteed to get the lowest price. When you pre-order, you really help me. The more pre-orders there are, the more Amazon will stock it and the more bookstores will see that Amazon is buying it, and then they will stock it, too.

And today is Amazon Prime Day, so it’s a great day to shop!

So many deals are available, so while you pick some of them up–pre-order The Great Sex Rescue, too! (And let me know that you did in the comments, too!)

Today’s a great day to get ANY of my books from Amazon, when you’re also shopping the deals: 

While you’re at Amazon, pick up the two parenting books we’ve been talking about on our podcasts!

People often ask us for recommendations for books that we recommend, and we do have a hard time giving them because we’ve spent so much time the last year looking at the best-selling resources that were actually HARMFUL (and we included why in The Great Sex Rescue). I’m looking forward to finding healthy books, especially by authors who aren’t as well-known, to start recommending.

But the two parenting ones that we talk about again and again are Discipline that Connects with Your Child’s Heart, an amazing book that focused on what godly discipline is, rather than punishment, and Rebecca’s book Why I Didn’t Rebel, in which she interviewed a ton  of millennials to find out commonalities that had some leaving the faith and some sticking with it. It’s a book full of stories that will resonate, and show you how some of the things you assumed were necessary actually work directly against kids developing their own relationships with God.

Here they are–and again, today’s a great day to pick things up on Amazon!

And, hey, if you already have all my books, or you’re just going shopping at Amazon for Prime Day–when there are TONS of specials–remember to use my link to help support the blog!

Can you pretty please follow me on Instagram?

I’d really like to grow my Instagram following, because once I get to 10,000 followers it’s easier for me to add links to my stories. So I’ve made it my goal that I want to get to 10,000 followers by the time The Great Sex Rescue launches, so that I can get the word out about what healthy teaching on sex in marriage looks like. I’m about 58% of the way there. So can you follow me?  I do post about my blog & podcasts, but I also put lots of personal stuff in, like this:

Thank you!

Over 300 of you have downloaded the Intimately Us “fun and sexy” app!

That’s awesome! I talked about Intimately Us in a post earlier this month, and how it helps you spice things up, try new things, but especially helps you discover each other’s preferences (and even discover your own). It’s really all about growing intimacy.

Well, in the comments yesterday I was talking to Trevor about it, and told him that my take was that what made this app stand out was the emphasis on discovery. He downloaded it, and wrote back:

After downloading it and paying the one-time payment yesterday, I have to say I’m really impressed it with it. We went through all of the questions and love the interface between devices. We haven’t gotten into everything yet, but I would have to agree that it’s much more comprehensive and focused on getting to know each other. I’m quite impressed and love the variety that has been implemented into this new app. Thank you for sharing it.

Trevor

It really is a great app–if you haven’t downloaded it yet, check it out.

Finally, can I just ask for prayer for dizziness? 

I’ve been suffering for the last three weeks with Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It’s caused by a build-up of calcium on the follicles of the inner ear, which make you INCREDIBLY dizzy, feeling as if the whole room is spinning. I’ve had it worse than a lot of people get it, I think. I have done the exercises they recommend, and it has helped. But it hasn’t completely resolved, and it got worse again this week after getting better for a bit.

It means I can’t work for very long every day, and I’m trying to finish up the filming for our Orgasm Course. I’m spending longer at Katie’s filming than I anticipated because we’re trying to go slowly. 

But it’s very hard to sleep, because it’s often worse at night. So if you could say a prayer for me, that would be great. This is relatively harmless. It isn’t going to kill me, and it doesn’t mean anything’s really life-threateningly wrong. But it’s very hard to live with, and I’m afraid I’ll never be able to do yoga again (which I love). I’d just like the room to stop spinning!

Incidentally, we do have a prayer email that we send out periodically, because we need a LOT of prayer, especially as the new book launches. We’re going to get a lot of pushback. So if you’re interested in being a part of that, just sign up! I’d so appreciate it.

Is Someone Stepping on Your Air Hose?

So many women--and many men as well--honestly feel like the church is hurting them. I do not believe that it is Jesus that is hurting them, but the things that the church teaches, especially around sex and marriage, do cause harm. Our surveys have shown that...

Can Sex Be Hot and Holy at the Same Time?

Can sex be hot and holy at the same time? One of my big picture passions that I want people to understand is that sex is more than just physical--it's supposed to be deeply intimate too. And maybe to understand that, we need to take a step back to see what God thinks...

    Praying for you Sheila,
    Just because something isn’t life threatening doesn’t mean it is not very difficult to deal with.
    Thank you for all that you are doing. Maybe yoga won’t be lost forever. 😊

        I just pre-ordered the ebook! My husband and I also downloaded the intimately us app and like it so far – we haven’t even done everything in the free version yet because there’s so much there!

    Just preordered your book! So excited to read it!
    My sister has also had problems with vertigo/dizziness. She went to 4 different doctors and had it for 4 weeks before finally finding a physical therapist that specialized in treating it. That’s what ended up helping her. Will be praying for you.

      Thank you! I’m seeing a vertigo-specialist physiotherapist soon, too, so I’m hoping that helps!

    Preordered! And thank you for the reminder about the parenting books. I’m struggling hard with disciplining my strong willed 3 year old in particular the last few days, so it was timely. I ordered that as well.

    Praying for your dizziness (and sleep!), Sheila.
    Other than your and Rebecca’s parenting books, another one that resonated with me from start to finish was “Hints on Child Training” by Henry Clay Trumbull. I felt it was Christ-centered and treated children with dignity, using concepts of child development stages and appropriate boundaries without actually employing those terms (was originally written in 1890). Chapters were easily digestible and covered things like dinner conversations, empathy for childhood fears, will-training rather than will-breaking, training a child toward faith in God as opposed to faith in prayer or good deeds, etc. The re-published version includes a forward by Gregg Harris (which I imagine could be good or bad, depending on your viewpoint!).
    Anyway, it is a stark contrast to “Shepherding a Child’s Heart.”

    That’s exciting about the hardcover version, and what it means for publisher backing. I’d love to pre-order, but my husband just got laid off, so I’ll have to wait until it comes out.

    Sheila – I am glad you finally broke the news on your book. It was on my mind to share what I found the other day but I didnt want take your thunder. I had gone out to amazon to shop and I used your link and there it was! I was wondering why you were waiting to tell us about the pre-order….Becca had told us about your dizzy spell stuff. I have a friend who goes through that from time to time. Of course you have my prayers. The intimately Us app is good. It is just the tool that seems to be really helping with our issues. I suppose I have shared too much tmi around here in the past so I wont get into it – I will just say the app just might be an answer to prayer.

      Oh, Phil, I’m so glad you’re enjoying Intimately Us! I’ll pass the word on to Daniel, too. He’ll love that! And thank you for the congrats. I wanted to dedicate a whole post to it, but I had other stuff to say, and it just didn’t seem to be a good time. 🙂

    I’m so excited for your new book and I LOVE the cover!! (Also, I just finally just finished reading Rebecca’s book yesterday – I’m a bit behind lol – but it was so good!) I’ll definitely be recommending both.
