God created us for intimacy and beginning August 5th, we’re going to take a 4-week look at what that means. Intimacy is a topic everyone has wrestled with at some point in their lives. How do we address this with children, how do we deal with pornography, and how about intimacy even in marriage? These are all topics that are hard to navigate, but we hope that these resources can help!

Wired for Intimacy
How Pornography Hijacks the Male Brain Paperback by William M. Struthers 

In this book neuroscientist and researcher William Struthers explains how pornography affects the male brain and what we can do about it. Because we are embodied beings, viewing pornography changes how the brain works, how we form memories and make attachments. By better understanding the biological realities of our sexual development, we can cultivate healthier sexual perspectives and interpersonal relationships. Struthers exposes false assumptions and casts a vision for a redeemed masculinity, showing how our sexual longings can actually propel us toward sanctification and holiness in our bodies. With insights for both married and single men alike, this book offers hope for freedom from pornography.
