Things I Wish I Had Known About Sex

I wish I had known… The emotions that come with having sex (e.g., feeling insecure, vulnerable, a need to please, possessive, etc.). That as a female you can’t separate sex from your emotions, even if you think you can. That girls care more about the emotional connection than the actual …

We wanted to share this incredible, moving excerpt from a blogpost beautifully penned by Sarah Jakes.  This truly sums up the vision and mission of Fly-Chicks, Inc. and we are thankful to see so many women willing to share their stories… 

We have this idea of what success looks like and then we do all that we can to achieve it. Then setbacks demand we become stronger or break into pieces. I once believed that what didn’t kill me only made me stronger, then I realized that you can become too strong. When you constantly work the same muscle over and over, it usually begins to strain from the pressure.

“There is beauty in being vulnerable…”

I was determined to be a strong woman, even if it meant that it would break me. I didn’t complain about my heartbreak, I wanted to be tough. I didn’t whine about not having the down payment for the house, I went to work. I didn’t cry when I lost my way. I just continued making turn after turn hoping one would put me back on the right path.

Then I decided to tell my truth. … Continue Reading

August 28, 2014 Faith No Comments

Admit it, there are parts of the Bible that are difficult to digest. Certain words sting going down and sometimes cause us to question our faith.

In the Old Testament story of Hannah, I found staring at me, like a dagger, seven words about why Hannah could not conceive a child: because the Lord had closed her womb. In fact, those seven disturbing words are found twice in just two verses, so we don’t miss the fact that God was the One who was withholding from Hannah what she wanted most (1 Samuel 1:4-5).

Poor Hannah. All she wanted was a child. She wanted to be a mom just like every woman around her. She didn’t seem to be asking God for much. And to make matters worse, she was constantly mocked and ridiculed by her husband’s other wife for her inability to conceive a child. But when we get to those seven disturbing words that explain, but don’t really explain, why Hannah couldn’t have a child, it’s difficult to not blame God for her misery. And within those seven stinging words are four words that explain – or don’t really explain – the troubles we experience today, too: because the Lord had….

I know those words too well, by now. Maybe you do, too:

…because the Lord had changed his heart.

…because the Lord had withheld another child.

…because the Lord had closed that door.

…because the Lord had taken her away.

…because the Lord had clearly said “no.”

Maybe you’ve experienced those four – or seven – disturbing words in your life, too.

…because the Lord had not healed her?

…because the Lord had let him die?

…because the Lord had chosen someone else?

…because the Lord had closed your womb?

As disturbing as those words are — that imply God is in control over the things that we long for or hurt over the most — I have come to trust in the three words that often come in the middle of our story of struggle. … Continue Reading
