Shifting Culture through Music in Your Home
22:06

Come along with me and let’s bring the truth of God into your home through the gift of music as we prayerfully prepare to launch Heaven in Your Home Family Music.

 

In this episode you’ll hear how a little rap based on 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 became a seed not only to plant truth in the hearts of my children, but one planted to bring my talented friend and musician Kathryn Brummer alongside to write beautiful songs based on teaching truths.

 

The catchiness of the rap caught on and all of my kids not only sing it while we’re in the kitchen or in the car, but that rap launched us into countless deeper conversations about the significance of God’s design, His heart for us, and His amazing plan for how we live in our bodies as male and female. 

 

We want to see that happen for families all over the world. We want to see the life-shaping power of music, combined with truth filled theology, form our kids' worldviews and shift the culture of our homes from the inside out. 

 

We want to invite you to join us in launching a music platform, Heaven in Your Home Family Music, offering families a foundation-building space to celebrate God’s wonderful design and truth through song. 

 

We are prayerfully partnering with a producer and studio to bring the music to life THIS MONTH. Won’t you partner with us to make this happen.

27:22

Sex is a gift from God, given to you with intention and purpose. We’re continuing in the summer series, educating ourselves on our body so that we can live in a more celebratory tone when it comes to how we think about our bodies, our femininity and our sexuality. 

 

Common views of sex are are often achored in the cultural assumption that sex = erection, entry, thrusting, ejeculation, resolution. Sex is a much more beautiful, layered and fruitful experience. And, the female body is created with incredible responses to complement the male response.

 

In this episode we will begin to unpack what your female body needs and what a more integrated connection between the brain and the body looks like for women. Women need engagement, time, stimulation and connection between the body and the brain. 

 

Learn to become more aware of what is happening in your body, and tune in and pay attention to the way your body responds in desire, arousal, climax and resolution. This awareness leads to insight on how to wake up to your body and build more intimacy in your marriage.

Episode 100: Healing Journeys, Fruitfulness and Celebrating 100 Episodes
36:25

God invites you to be captivated by Him. This episode is a sweet celebratory time of sharing my heart, how the Lord captivated my whole heart…and how in the world I ended up as an “intimacy evangelist,” encouraging you to know God’s heart for your body, your sexuality and your married intimacy.

In this episode you’ll hear more about my journey from a newlywed bride suddenly trying to flip a switch from, “don’t do it,” to embracing God’s good intentions with married sex. I knew there was more to sex than what the world showed and a story bigger than the silence I sensed from the church.   

We’ll talk about the idea of having a honeymoon marriage, the vision of shalom and having Heaven in your home, and the healing journey that we are all on as we lean into God for transformation.

 

You’ll hear from women on the same journey, the ways He is meeting them and the fruitfulness they are experiencing. Let’s celebrate, friend.

Episode 98: Body Talks with Kids. Big Picture Vision, Small Phrases to Create Impact.
25:27

Let’s talk about image bearing power, because what your body reveals is really good news. As you teach your children to watch for the cultural cues that seek to elevate ideas that don’t align with God’s goodness, let’s look at the good news that the body itself reveals.

 

God uses visible things to reveal what is invisible about His nature. This is true for your body. You can see something about our invisible God through the body. We can know God by observing the things He has made. 

 

Sexuality and gender is like a clue to show us what God is like and how we can show God to others through the body. 

 

Your body is good! Let’s lean in to the good news shown through theology of the body.

 

You’ll learn small phrases to help you teach your children about the meaningful purpose of the body…and show them a better way to create a big cultural shift.

Episode 97: Body Talks with Kids. Connecting to the Meaning of YOUR Body.
30:16

Do you want to know how to effectively lead your kids into truth during this confusing time in our culture? It begins with understanding the meaning of what it is to be human…and it starts with YOU. 

 

What does it mean to be a fully alive human, made in the image of God from head to toe? And, what does it look like to walk in fullness of knowing why God gave you a body, distinctly male or female with great purpose. God designed your body to be communicators of His glory (Romans 1:20). Your body is GOOD.

 

When we reframe the conversation about the body, gender and sexualty we can shift from a list of rules, and do’s and don’ts to a vision of WHY God created our body, our gender, our genitals. Embrace the GOODNESS of what God reveals through your body.

 

Jesus came in a body and we were designed to live in a body, informed by the reality of the love of God. Let’s reconnect to the “why” of our humanity. Listen in and hear a simple framework for teaching theology of the body.

Episode 96: Body Talks with Kids. Clarity, Confidence and the Critical Need to Shift the Conversation.
27:33
You can’t give away something that you don’t own yourself. When it comes to talking to your children about their body, their gender and their sexuality the stakes seem increasingly high. 

 

And, while you might be looking for the best formula for sharing a Biblical worldview, let’s start the conversation with a strong foundation about what your body reveals and why your body matters.

 

In this series, we will unpack a solid foundation and understanding of theology of the body. This understanding provides a framework for a foundation to support you as you teach your children a valuable dialogue that goes beyond a “sex talk” or a “puberty talk.”

 

Let’s be informed so we can form our children’s hearts and minds about their body, their gender and their sexuality in a way that helps them navigate their own journey and also be a light in the world.

Her fabulous and funny adult children, Josie and Jake, delight in telling their friends that their mom runs a sex shop when, in reality, she founded CWIVES, a ministry to help Christian wives make their sex lives sizzle. Sex shop, ministry–sounds just the same to us too.

Episode 90: What Our Period Reveals
24:38

Your body matters. Yes! And, part of your feminine body includes the monthly arrival of your period. Is it possible to reframe the way we view our period? Rather than thinking of our period as something we dread or try to cover up, how can we reframe our thinking to bless the way God has made us as women? How does our period reveal unique image bearing qualities and why does it matter? This is a unique conversation, but it’s really important to you and to our daughters. 

There is a more beautiful narrative than you might even imagine.

Episode 89: Sex as Stress Reliever
18:34

How do we lean into sex during exhausting, hard, or stressful seasons? Even during seasons when sex is far from your mind and you just want to fall into your bed with exhaustion at night? 

In this episode, you’ll hear about the ways sex can actually be a “get to” that allows your body to be flooded with feel good hormones to benefit a season of hardship, exhaustion or stress. God has created your body so wonderfully that sex can allow for tremendous stress relief, especially during seasons when you need comfort.

Listen in and hear encouragement to help you think about “the more, the more” in your marriage and how frequency in sex can provide incredible health benefits in addition to strengthening your emotional connection.

Episode 88: Sex Mentors - Why We Need Them and How to Find Them
30:30

Have you considered the value of having a mentor to help you grow your womanhood, femininity and your sex life? We tend to live pretty independently, but that’s not how God created us to live. We are created for community. 

It is easy to embrace the idea of mentorship when it comes to spiritual disciplines like prayer, Bible study, child-rearing…but what it would look like to have a mentor that can help you live more fully alive as a woman, in your sexuality. This is all God’s territory!

Listen in for some good ideas for inviting another woman into your life to explore the theology of the body, the beauty of the way God created women and how to celebrate sexuality and sexual pleasure. It can be as simple as deciding to read a book or listening to this podcast together.

In today’s episode,  Francie discusses what it means to be a wholehearted wife.  We have to take care of our heart.  Are we allowing others to influence us?  Are we stuck in a comparison trap?  Are we looking at someone’s highlight reels?  

4 Practicals:

  • Get in the presence of God regularly
  • Pray for someone who triggers envy and comparison
  • Find spaces in your day to find quiet in the day and allow the truth of God’s word to settle you
  • Consider what steps you need to take with social media in order to keep your eyes on Jesus and not what distracts you.

In today’s episode,  Francie discusses what it’s like to talk about sex together.  If it's hard to talk about intimacy in your marriage, maybe there’s a deeper level of heart work that God wants to do.  If it’s painful to talk about because of shame or abuse, listen to the Holy Spirit and stop and get help in terms of counseling.  

This is a slow process.  

Ways to talk about sex:

-find books about it

-use a game or a playful approach

-practice what you read

-build trust with your words

- use code words

Thanks for joining Francie on this episode of Heaven in Your Home. We hope you’ll be inspired by this episode, and feel led to share it with someone you know would be ministered by Francie’s message.

In today’s episode, Francie discusses reconciliation- reconcile of reforming our thinking of our bodies so that we don’t live in shame of our bodies.   We are image bearers of God.  God wants us to look at our bodies and see we are amazing. We see the love of God through our bodies.

Psalm 8

When we see God reference a body part named in the scripture, think theology of the bodies.

Romans 1

Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.  

1 Corinthians  6:19

God lives in our bodies

Romans 1:20

Image bearers stopped acknowledging God and stopped being thankful.  Our hearts become dark.  We become disconnected.  We become foolish.

The lie is that we are our own God and we are made poorly.  We serve the creature, not the creator.

Where have you believed lies about your body?  About your gender?  About your sexuality?  About your genitals?

Episode 2: The Science of Sex
19:33

Welcome the Heaven in Your Home podcast. We hope you’ll be inspired by this episode, and feel led to share it with someone you know would be ministered to by Francie’s message.

In this episode, Francie talks about...

  • The science behind God’s good gift of intimacy.  
  • The GOODNESS of God in our biology and all the amazing God-inspired wonders that happen on a physiological level in our mind, body and emotions when we enjoy the gift of intimacy. 
  • The fact that there is a grand narrative … the love story of God ... the very Gospel … embedded into the nature of sexuality, marriage, and into the story of husband and wife.
  • How our bodies - our very most private parts, our brains, our hormones, our emotions and our relationships - testify to God’s wisdom, creativity, and genius- all by Him, for Him and for His glory.  
  • Romans 11:36- For EVERYTHING comes from Him- and exists by His power and intended for His glory.  

A prayer to see God’s good design on our bodies: 

God, it’s clear that there’s so much resistance in this area.  But I know you to be a God of breakthrough, healing and restoration. I ask for your re-alignment in my mindset on sex, my body, and the gift of intimacy in my marriate.  Help me to discover your view, your intention for my body, my sexuality, my family and my household. Help me embrace that my body is GOOD. Help me to see and celebrate your power, goodness and wisdom that is revealed in my body- this temple in which you delightfully dwell.
