Category Description for God's Design for Sex Series:

Too often young people first hear about sex from their friends, other people, or on TV, and most often sex is portrayed wrongly. The authors of this series encourage parents to be the first to discuss sex with their children and to present it in the way that God intended. They have created this series to help instill appropriate knowledge of this gift from God from a young age and to guide you through answering and dealing with tough questions about sex as kids get older.

The core book in the series, How and When to Tell Your Children About Sex, is written for the parent to give them information and advice on discussing sex with their children. The four additional books are written at a child's level, and are intended to be read and discussed together. The Story of Me strives to lay the necessary spiritual foundation for a child's understanding of sexuality. It is written as a dialogue between a young child and his parents, where he asks questions about the story of himself and his parents answer with an emphasis on the goodness of God and His plan for men and women. The second book, Before I Was Born, reads as a story and shares God's plan in creating male and female and explains how they were each made different and the changes that occur to each when growing up. It also covers God's plan for marriage and the wonderful gift of sex that God gave to married people, as well as the basic process of how a baby is formed and grows and birthed.

The main purposes of the third book, What's the Big Deal?, are to build on the spiritual foundation of sex in the first two books, help you clearly explain to your children why God intends sex for married couples only, and to build a healthy understanding of sexuality that will stand against the negative and wrong ideas about sex received from the secular world. This book is similar to the first in that the text is a dialogue between two older children and their parents, and it deals with subjects such as sex outside of marriage, AIDS, homosexuality, God's response to wrong, puberty, sexual abuse, and other important sexual issues. The last book in the series, Facing the Facts, is written for your student to read by themselves, but the authors strongly encourage you to also read it and discuss the material. This book provides a thorough, appropriate description of the differences between male and female bodies, the changes that come with puberty as well as how a woman gets pregnant and gives birth. It then focuses on difficult areas such as saving sex for marriage and love and dating, and it provides some solid answers to tough questions about sexual issues.

Take some advice from the authors and don't wait for your children to ask you about sex as a result of something they heard; rather, be proactive and lay the foundation from a young age so that your children grow up appreciating, understanding, and respecting this gift from God. ~ Steph

Most of this book was exactly what I wanted but I had a concern about one part It beautifully covers the topics of God's plan for families in a way that young children can understand It uses proper words for body parts shows a baby growing in the mother's womb and explains an umbilical cord It even touches on the topic of children not having to hug or kiss anyone that they are uncomfortable with My concern has to do with the and illustration of childbirth This book portrays a very narrow view of childbirth with the doctor in control the mother hooked up to an Electronic Fetal Monitor and lying in bed and everyone in the room (except the mother) wearing masks This view of childbirth may suit some families perfectly but this does not resemble birth for every family I have had natural midwife attended home births I was not hooked to any machines I moved freely wore my own clothes and gave birth in whatever position I chose with my husband helping to catch the baby Therefore the illustration and wording in this part of the book seemed unnatural for me to share with my children Because telling children about the day they were born is so special and specific I would recommend this book to you if you had a birth similar to what the book depicts If you did not I'd recommend finding a resource that has a less specific image of childbirth or one that more accurately portrays your experience
