I grew up in Chicago. Though I have now lived the majority of my life in Florida, I remain a Chicago girl in my heart. I know what a “front room” is. The tallest building in the city will always be called “Sears Tower.” I know the Empire Carpet jingle by heart, and I take my pizza very seriously. However, the thing that most distinguishes me as a Chicagoan is my unequivocal devotion to the Chicago Bears football team. The NFL is a religion in my family of origin, and we live for football season.

When my wife and I retired, we moved into a 55+ community that required all dogs to be leashed on walks. We soon noticed our Maggie was barking loudly and incessantly at every dog we met. She was disturbing the peace and quiet, the tranquil unity of our “senior” streets and sidewalks. Maggie soon had her own personal trainer, who said she didn’t have enough self-confidence to approach other dogs without fearful behavior. She needed lots of positive verbal feedback.

Christians have sex. Shocking, isn’t it? Not only do Christians have sex, they have good sex: rollicking, passionate, blood-pumping sex. And yet, despite the myriads of children filling the cradle roll and primary Sabbath school rooms—evidence of active sex lives—we often act as though sex is taboo. In our zeal for purity and premarital abstinence, it seems that many Adventists have squashed the idea that sex isn’t just good, it’s great!

It’s Friday and I’m planning the Sabbath activities for the kids and me and my husband Tommy. I’m already troubleshooting for if the weather is bad, what food they will be up for eating, who we might get together with, how to handle the sibling conflict during worship Friday night, and whether the bikes are in working order. It’s challenging to balance what I encourage/require the girls to do versus how much flexibility I have in what they can choose or not choose to do.
