From the Back Cover
In a world obsessed with sex, why is the church relatively silent about it? While sex is twisted, perverted, cheapened, and idolized in popular culture, we leave young people drowning in the repercussions of misinformation, misunderstanding, and worth-robbing mistakes that could have been avoided.
Enough is enough. With raw vulnerability and a bold spirit, Mo Isom shares her own sexual testimony, opening up the conversation about misguided rule-following, virginity, temptation, porn, promiscuity, false sexpectations, sex in marriage, and more, calling us back to God's original design for sex--a way to worship and glorify Him.
Sex was God's idea. It's time we invited Him back into the bedroom.
"Mo Isom is a light in the darkness. This book is a must-read for those tired of being pressured and deceived by culture's ever-changing view and ready to rediscover sex by its God-given meaning."--Lisa Bevere, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder of Messenger International
"One of the things the church and our world need a lot more of is honesty, transparency, vulnerability, and truth all mixed together. Mo is that combination. I can't recommend this book enough!"--Jefferson Bethke, New York Times bestselling author and coauthor of Love That Lasts
"Mo is a powerful voice rising in our generation. She tells the truth, and it kills shame and invites freedom. This book will not only speak to your story but remind you of the bigger story that God is writing with our lives and our sexuality."--Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of Looking for Lovely and Let's All Be Brave
Mo Isom is a popular blogger, a national speaker, and the New York Times bestselling author of Wreck My Life. A former All-American goalkeeper for the Louisiana State University soccer team, she has been featured in Sports Illustrated and has appeared on ESPN SportsCenter Top-10 Plays, Ellen, ESPN, CBS, The 700 Club, and countless other platforms. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, Jeremiah Aiken, and their two daughters.

When I found this book, I had been praying for years over the state of believers’ hearts about sex. I had personally been burned by a singles ministry group, finding it to be just as sexually promiscuous as the bars I was running away from. In the wake of that experience, I became consumed by a holy fire, rising from the ashes of my heartache as an ardent purity advocate. I felt so alone and frustrated in the lack of relevant church resources to equip, educate, and empower women and girls in a pursuit of purity.
Because of this book, I am now having open and biblical conversations about the holy act of sex. It has empowered me to make a stand in parenting also. I’m not going to be like my millenial peers. I’m not going to assume youth ministry is doing a “good enough” job, or assume the secular “sex-ed” class my son had in school covered all the bases so I don’t have to be “uncomfortable” as a single mom talking to my 12 year-old son about sex and purity. I’m not going to be silent while the world throws sex at him 24/7; I will be the loudest and most prevalent voice in his life. I’ve been using this book to prompt vital conversations about not just who he is, but WHOSE he is, and why purity matters. So he can’t be manipulated by locker room banter. So he never feels the need to prove his masculinity through sexual conquests and becomes enslaved by porn and promiscuity. So no girl he meets ever feels the need to perform to receive his attention, so every girl feels safe and respected in his presence.
“We need to know why it matters to listen and obey in the first place. Because most of our sexual sin struggles grow out of our lack of a deep-rooted understanding of what sex is, how God sees us, why god calls us to what He does, and why obedience to that calling is worth the sacrifice.” ~~~ Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot, Chapter 1
If you are looking for a relevant AND reverent resource with practical, biblically based advice on beginning conversations about sex (even if the conversation is with your own reflection) this book is a MUST READ. Mo “goes there” in a profoundly relatable way, like a heart-to-heart with your BFF, clinging to the Cross as a compass. Mo’s sense of humor is a delight and her love for Jesus is radiant. I laughed, cried, and shouted “AMEN!” to the ceiling (and did so more than once!). No matter your age, relationship status, or your gender, there is much to gain from the pages of Mo’s story. Basically, if you have a pulse you should buy this book - maybe even an extra because you WILL give yours away to share!
My girl Mo Isom Aiken has once again used her platform to address the topics that not many people talk about, but so many need to hear. Sex is ripping apart families, lives, marriages, and churches and we are all just standing by while that happens. This book is so eye opening for all ages (14+ in my opinion) men and women. In a sex saturated world, Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot is the light and the truth that invites Jesus into the dark places of our lives and offers so much redemption and healing. MUST READ!!!!! If you find yourself in the midst of sexual sin, searching for answers, or have children growing up in this ugly world, consider getting yourself a copy of this book. You will NOT be disappointed!
Mo's testimony is full of resounding "me too" moments that will dispel shame and simultaneously give you the truth you need to see yourself and respect yourself as the Lord does.
Regardless of your age or relational situation this book will speak to your heart and help you understand your identity in Christ and how His grace can totally shift our mindset - if we will just let Him into the conversation
The author is using the sin of a book the new living translation bible. The NLT takes God's word and then changes the parts of the bible "they" felt needed updating and needed to match our current culture and times. That by definition is the work of the devil. Not the author, but the version of the book she used paraded as the word of God.
She is correct is aligning herself with the glorification of God but wrong in how she reads the bible. Turns the book into false preaching.
“You and I were created by a King, a King with specific guidance and direction for us. A King who DOES NOT create useless things. We were created in the image of God.” (pg. 30) Thank you, Mo! You are helping pave the way for a generation of spirit lead, gospel driven, and grace motivated women.
