Love. Marriage. Sex.

These longings and connections are at the core of who we are as human beings. Often charged with emotion, heartache, and pain – sexuality helps shape the drama of our lives.

Some of us want to be married but remain alone.

Some of us are married and deeply unhappy.

Some of us can’t escape the grip of pornography.

Some of us wrestle with same-sex attraction.

Many of us feel that our sexuality is a burden rather than a blessing.

All of us need grace.
