francie

Some of my recent twitter captures for the Godly Wife who seeks to be renewed by the transforming of her mind:

  • Read today: “I luv my husbands sex drive bcuz its my chance 2communicate 2him [like no1 else] hes safe w/me, hes luvd &hes highly cherishd.”
  • Read today: “Its a blessing cuz it drives him 2me..binds us 2gether..reminds me of a need in his life..I alone am uniquely..2honor&satisfy.”
  • “Men,much more than women, relate 2a partner thru sex..as evidenced by their fear of rejection, concerns about performance &desire 2please.”
  • Read today: 4men, sex is their primary way of communicatng &expressing intimacy..Taking away sex takes away their primary emotional outlet.
  • Read today: “Increasingly,experts believ sex is a MORE emotional experienc 4men than 4women.Men tend 2express feelings w/actions,not words.”
  • Read today: Humbly sow forgiveness &grace..it takes humility 2b a willing &swift repenter..&2offer forgiveness after being wronged.
  • Read today: “..? of how often shd we hv sex? is not primarily about the physical..as about how much emotional connection do u want 2foster?”
  • Read today: “This recovering-prude..southern church girl is learning..that sex..opens door 4deeper level of emotional &spiritual intimacy.”
  • Read today: “Sex opens up the HEARTS of our husbands like nothing else can..Its where we connect on a level reserved only 4husband &wife.”
  • Read today: “Learn from variety of other’s experiences; books can sav ur marriage years of heartbreak..we need 2b consistently pro-active.”
  • “ppl are better able 2sustain desire when they R motivated 2meet their partner’s sexual needs, even when conflict w/their own preferences.”
  • [when] he gets depressd cuz hes not being touchd, its like little boy who stands in crib&cries 2b pickd up..hes experiencing emotional deprivation.

******

  • [wife renewing her mind] We let stress drive toward intimacy rather than destroy it.Approach things that normally divide w/unity&connection.
  • [wife renewing her mind] God designd sex 2b like a sacrament..practical gift 2bless,unify &bind marriages 2gether..steward a great sex life!
  • [wife renewing her mind] We hv hard time talking about sex; it hits on..our deep issues of insecurity..But truth is we don’t hv 2stay stuck.
  • [wife renewing her mind] What if I learned 2speak his language of affection &started 2fill his love tank up 2point all he can say is “WOW”!?
  • [wife renewing her mind] What if 4/month, I AIMED 2win my husbands affections w/intentional acts of love, tenderness, spontaneity, &care?
  • [wife renewing her mind] What if I decided that everyday 4month, Id seduce my husband? Pure commitment 2loving him by being a generous wife?
  • [wife renewing her mind] My body=a holy,pure,beautiful gift! I’ll B generous w/it &take every opportunty 2build emotional/physical closeness
  • [wife renewing her mind] Sex=blessing,GOD’s idea/gift! designd 2b amazing &effort taken 2b available=WORTH reward of intimacy w/my husband!
  • [wife renewing her mind] Marriage commitment calls us 2actually luv by actions regardless of feelings.&Good news is feelings usually follow!
  • Mr: Remember 2b tender towards wife. Mrs: LOVE his sex drive! Both: Be ready 2hv sex 1st, THEN talk about stressor from place of connection
  • “Actions of love LEAD to feelings of love.” – Timothy Keller @timkellernyc
  • “The more I study sexuality from a biblical worldview, the more my heart stands in..awe &worship of our good &loving God.” ~Francie Winslow

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come.
