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

25:02

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 32: Jumpstart Your Marriage: A 31 Day Challenge Intro
18:11

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 to by Francie’s message.

In This Episode Francie talks about:

  • Jeremiah 17:7-8
  • Live thoughtfully, intentionally this month- to find more oneness, purpose and intimacy.
  • Turn down your focus on social media and the news. Turn up your attention to what God is doing and wants to do in your marriage. 
  • Schedule in your day a few “distraction breaks” for when you will take in input from outside sources- news, social media, etc. (Once in the morning, once in the evening) so that your mind isn’t oversaturated with so much distraction and heaviness, but instead can be filled with creativity and vision from God for your marriage and calling.
  • Set up a “tech box” on your kitchen counter where you keep your phones when you’re not using them. 
  • Consider deleting social media or news apps from your phone, so that you check it purposefully on your desktop at certain times, which will prevent you from feeling fragmented or cluttered or distracted throughout the day.

Prayer:  Lord, thank You for hope.  Thank you that You fill us with your Holy Spirit.  Even in desert seasons, even in seasons of famine, we don’t have to be afraid.  We can still abound because the resurrection power of the Living God lives in us.  Every part of our life belongs to you - our relationships, our marriage, even our bedroom.  We invite You in - mind, body, heart - to come into our marriage and make us whole.  This month, we give every part of our marriage to You.  We ask for supernatural growth inside our homes and our marriage intimacy as we seek to serve You and reach the world from the inside out.  We trust You.  We seek to bring You glory and honor with our lives as we surrender to your good way.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

Prayer:   Father, you are our Good Shepherd.  As your image bearers, we were designed for shalom - heaven in our home - for the fullness of God is in our midst.  We confess our weariness and declare our trust in You.  Hide us in the shelter of your wings.  We want more of You Lord.  Release a fresh measure of Your faith in our lives.  Even when we are going in circular paths, we trust You, because we know that with You as our guide, we are making progress and that our pain will lead to purpose.  Thank you Father, that you love us and lead us through heavy burdens and trials. Our confidence is not in our circumstances but in You, the anchor for our soul.  In your precious name we pray, Amen.

  • 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.
