Best of 2021: Sheila Wray Gregoire: The Lies You've Been Taught and How to Recover What God Intended

Sheila Wray Gregoire is a popular speaker, marriage blogger, and the author of nine books, including The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex. Her latest book is The Great Sex Rescue that will be coming out in early March. It is based on the largest survey ever done of Christian women. She surveyed 20,000 women for this book, and we get to hear some of the results of that survey on this podcast. 

Sheila loves encouraging women in their relationships, both with God and with their husbands, children, and friends. Her passion is for marriage, and she and her husband Keith speak together at marriage outreaches and at FamilyLife Canada marriage conferences. Sheila believes in authenticity, and gives real solutions to the very real and messy problems women, and couples, can face. You can usually find her in Belleville, Ontario, where she’s constantly texting her two young married daughters and knitting. Preferably simultaneously.

She blogs at: tolovehonorandvacuum.com where you can also find her resources that she has written and produced.  You can find the rubric she mentioned here, and a place to pre-order her latest book The Great Sex Rescue: https://tolovehonorandvacuum.com/gsr-rubric/

She has resources to help parents have the sex talk with their kids ages 10-16 in her video curriculum The Whole Story, which has a boy version and a girl version that you can use on a weekend away with your son or daughter.  It is free from purity culture and statements that make girls and boys feel ashamed and trapped in ways some other curriculums have, and it makes it easy to talk about sex with you kid because the videos say the parts that are hard to talk about so you can watch with them.  Has she done us a great favor here or what? She even gives us advice on how to talk with our daughters about her first period in a way that's not creepy.

Have a listen today, and pass this episode on to anyone that may need to hear it.  Sheila is a resource to get us to talk about sex in a healthy way.
