My purpose

I want to post once again why I have created this blog. I received a nasty comment yesterday about how "silly and childish" my "religious approach" is about sex. The writer of this comment then described in explicit sexual detail his filthy ideas on the topic. I was disturbed and knew that he was obviously hoping this was a different kind of website. It may seem unusual that a home maker and mother of four would take time to write about sex, but may I emphasize the greater picture? My intent is to write about intimacy in marriage. So many woman of faith spend their lives prior to marriage striving to keep their virtue- as they should-and when finally able to share that virtue with their spouse, feel discouraged and frustrated at what that brings.

My wish with this blog is to create feelings of confidence and hope. My wish is to have a voice of goodness in the world. My wish is to speak about sexual intimacy with honor. "If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." (article of faith # 13). Which is EXACTLY what our marriages should be.

Deep breath...

Thank you for those who have supported my thoughts, and who can recognize the plan in place.

  11. Napes, I can't believe I only just discovered this blog! What a wonderful and inspired woman you are! Thank you. I couldn't help notice however that this stops at 22 posts. Perhaps you stopped posting to this blog because you felt it had fulfilled its purpose, or perhaps because your life is incredibly busy. Both reasons would of course be fine. However, if you stopped posting because of some angry and twisted individual's comments, please remember that your gift of teaching is so great that darkness will not rest in trying to extinguish your light. Don't ever give in, Napes! You have taught me so much, as well as countless others. And, as your sweet Rain told me you'd like to pursue, I think you would make a phenomenal "sexual therapist" if you ever so chose. :) love you, Napes!

  12. I just found your blog this week from a link Heather from Women in the Scriptures had in her post. I've eaten up this information and will be using it in the future! My husband and I have already many healthy discussions and I hope you will get the chance to post more. This unfortunate comment reminds me of your earlier post on why sexual intimacy is so attacked by Satan...he's working hard yet again! This blog really has been pivotal since I never knew where to go for this type of info within th Church before! You would make a wonderful marital sexual therapist!
