A Heads Up for Parents

Dear Parents,

In an effort to avoid my past mistakes that made me write my first Letter to Parents, I thought I would give you a heads up.

Up to this point, most of the blogs content has been focused on the evils of pornography. This is a deep well of writing potential and I am nowhere near exhausting it. But I have felt for a long time that it is not enough to tell people all the things that God says not to do. We need to also tell people what God approves of: what he encourages.

So starting this week there will be a focus for a while on God’s encouragement for spouses to really delight in sex. God is not a cosmic killjoy who gave us a sex drive and then told us we can’t do anything with it. He has told us to deeply delight in our spouse with it.

I want to be clear that I know this blog is for men who are struggling with pornography so I will certainly not be graphic. In fact, if I hadn’t mentioned this, I bet most of you would not have noticed this change. But I still feel you should be warned. If you are concerned about this content reaching your teenager who follows my blog, then please review it before they read it.

Thank you for the privilege of speaking into your home. I don’t take it for granted that you have trusted me to communicate with your children about pornography. It is an honor and a responsibility I take very seriously.
