What you can’t conceive without

Call it what you like; Hanky Panky, the bedroom dance, being intimate, making love, a little boom boom in the bedroom. You just can’t conceive without having sex.

There I said it.

But sometimes life’s stresses get in the way. You both had a long day at work, laundry needs to be done, you don’t feel well, blah, blah, blah. And sometimes it’s especially hard to feel in the mood while trying so hard to procreate. It’s seems more mundane, more scheduled, less fun.

I’m not going to tell you how to get into the mood, I’m gonna let Jill over at Diaper Diaries tell you! You all seriously need to get your booties over to her blog and have a read of her 1 Corinthians 7:5 Challenge. You will thank her, but your husbands will thank her more! While not dealing specifically with procreation, she does a great job challenging us all to be a little better in that one certain marital area. Here’s a little bit about what you can expect:

“Yes ladies, I’m talking about sex. Or more accurately, the sad lack of it that is going on in many marriages. When I told a friend I was going to be blogging about sex she responded, “But you have a Christian blog.” This is where we Christians are seriously missing the boat. Did you see the scripture reference at the end of the quotation? God talks about sex in the Bible. And not just to tell us not to have it. He is telling married people to have it regularly. Now this commandment made not have made it in to the top 10, but it was important enough to make it into the big book. So why is it often overlooked?” (taken from DiaperDiaries.net)

    I so love that you posted this! Have you ever read “The Power Of A Praying Wife”? I just read the chapter where Stormie Omartian touches on this very subject. She actually also has some suggestions for “getting in the mood” when you are really not. God must be trying to tell me something since I keep stumbling upon this topic-lol. And I’m trying to conceive so, really, I should know better!
    Thanks again!

  3. I love that book! I seem to need to read through it every year or two. You’d think one of these days it’d sink in……

    This is so true! :)

    There is a chapter in Mary Pride’s book “All The Way Home” called “Holy Sex” (or something like that, anyway). It was definitely transformational in realizing that God created this, and so it is good! :) (Plus, with a title like that, my husband was certainly motivated to read it.) :)


  6. Michele – are you saying if maybe I buy that book my husband will read?! What a miracle that would be. :-) (he hates reading while I can never get enough!)
