**This episode of Focus on the Family is suitable for adults only.**

Modern society is overwhelmed by sexual brokenness, gender issues, abuse and addiction. While conversations on these issues are happening in the church, they are often notably missing among Christians.

In this Focus on the Family podcast (video above, audio below), Dr. Juli Slattery shares her belief that the Christian community has been either judgmental or silent about the topics of sexuality for far too long.

Christians may have a list of sexual do’s and don’ts, but we really don’t understand God’s design for our sexuality. She believes Christians have been “discipled” by the sexual norms of today’s culture; a growing number of Christians are supportive of cohabitation, premarital sex, gender fluidity, and same-sex marriage.

Dr. Slattery urges Christians to study God’s design for sex and recognise their own forms of sexual brokenness, so that we may more authentically connect with non-believers who are dealing with the consequences of their sexual immorality.

Loving a Prodigal

Many Christian parents have seen their children, who were raised to follow the Lord, give up their faith when they were in their teens or twenties. This is a big problem that both parents and the church have to deal with.

Practice Gratefulness

An attitude of gratitude is something we all need to have and be able to teach our children. We know that being thankful has physiological benefits, but it’s also good for our mental health and happiness. It is especially important for those of us with faith to practice gratefulness.
