“God’s Design for Sex” series
From their earliest years, children are bombarded by destructive, false messages about the nature of sexual intimacy. As parents, we are to be the primary sex educators of our kids. First messages are the most powerful; why wait until your child hears the wrong thing and then try to correct the misunderstanding? It’s never too early to begin giving your child a practical understanding of his or her unique, beautiful body and why God designed it to be exactly the way it is. The four-book “God’s Design for Sex” series helps parents discuss God’s design for sex with their children with age-appropriate language and illustrations. Each book is designed to be read for specific age groups beginning with age 3 and continuing into the teenage years.
Living Hope’s mission is to proclaim God’s truth as they journey with those who are seeking sexual and relationship wholeness. They provide free in-person support groups, one-on-one pastoral counseling and mentoring, online support forums, and education and training for the church and community.

We are a faith-based ministry. That means 100% of the funds we need to live and work on are donated by fellowships, businesses and people who believe as we do. We are trusting God to provide for our needs. Therefore, we seek to be a blessing and a challenge in regards to missions whenever possible and trust that God will touch the hearts of those whom should be involved financially in the work. We will trust that you, in fellowship with God, can determine if it is His will for you to support us.
