“Why did you write “Beyond the Fairy Tale?”

Cover Page for Beyond the Fairy Tale

Many reasons! But my number one reason is this: I couldn’t find a book with basic biblical truth about sex and sexual pleasure.

I so far read many books about sex written by very respected, educated and knowledgeable spiritual authors, sought after speakers and leaders. However I am yet to find a book where I can read and understand biblical truths about sex as I can read and understand “A B C”.

That was actually the first question my publisher asked me when I turned in the manuscript. And this was my first simple and straightforward answer.

And they also asked me why this book is unique and different from other books on similar topics. My answer for this question is found in the introduction part of my book.

Sexual Problem in a Marriage

A4P Guest: I’m married with one child.

A4P: Okay.

A4P Guest: We’ve been married for the last three years. Throughout my married life, I have never experienced any sexual pleasure.

A4P: What do you think is the reason?

A4P Guest: My husband asks me to do things which I feel very uncomfortable to do but I do it anyways for the sake of my marriage. And I always carry with me this heavy burden in my heart that takes away my sexual feelings and desires. I don’t pray anymore and I don’t go to church that much often.

A4P: Did you try to communicate this with your husband? Did you tell him that you are not enjoying any part of the sex? Continue reading Sexual Problem in a Marriage

A Woman, assuming Authority over men?

A4P Guest: The Bible says that a woman should not have authority over men. You are not allowed to teach in the church since doing so is like assuming authority over men. Can you help me understand this?

A4P: Wow! My friend, you missed my call big time!

God didn’t call and anoint me so that I would assume authority over men; or over women for that matter; but over the power of the darkness! I’m (by the way, you too, are) called and anointed to demolish the network of the devil; “to put down arguments that sets itself up against” the truth of God; to walk over the devil’s territory and take over that which doesn’t belong to him! Oh, you missed my calling big time! My authority is over the power of the principalities who work in the dark. Continue reading A Woman, assuming Authority over men?

Mirrors I Adore

I am not sure how many mirrors you have in your house but in my house, you can find at least one mirror in every room. Well, let me take that back. Only those rooms I spend most of my time have mirrors.

Why? I love to look at myself! I don’t think it is sinful for a woman to look at herself in the mirror to take care of herself; to keep herself neat, clean and beautiful. My husband is my number one motivator for me to take care of myself because he compliments me. I mean after all, I’m his bride; I’m his crown (Proverbs 12:4); I’m his glory (1 Corinthians 11:7). So I better look pretty for him.

And my mirrors usually help me to earn, “You look pretty Baby” kind of compliments from my loving husband. You have no idea how I love to hear those words from him! Duh! He is the only man I want to impress every day! Continue reading Mirrors I Adore

From Minneapolis back to Maryland

Minnesota

Hello, to you all the Appeal for Purity Ministry Facebook page fans!

Did I miss writing? You bet I did! Whenever I travel, other than missing my loving husband and kids, writing is the one thing I miss the most!

Well, I had a wonderful time at Minnesota! I was one of the speakers invited to speak at the 9th annual United Youth for Christ (UY4C) conference.

As usual, before I tell you anything about the conference, I want to say thank you to the people who invited me over and made my stay in Minnesota a meaningful one.

I would like to say “Thank you” to Pastor Endiryas Hawaz, the senior pastor of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church in Minnesota (EECM), the hosting church pastor. Continue reading From Minneapolis back to Maryland

To Stay Closer or To Stay Far Away

If a fire starts in our basement, do we run away for our life or do we chill around?

No brainer! We sure run away for our life.

Let’s say, we couldn’t run away and we called 911. From the following two possible questions, which one are we most likely going to ask the 911 operator who is going to answer our call:

“What should I do to get closer to the fire?” Or,

“What should I do to stay away from the fire?” Continue reading To Stay Closer or To Stay Far Away

Purity for the brave hearted!
