“I probably annoy my kids, again because I have talked about sex with them their whole lives,” she reiterated. “I just make it a part of everyday conversation.”
The mother of three gave an example of when her daughter had a health class public school teacher in senior high tell the students it was important to explore sex with multiple partners so you can understand your body. Candace explained that because of the open, un-shameful communication she has had with her children about biblical sex, she could talk with her daughter. When Candace asked her daughter how she responded when her teacher said that, her daughter said, “I was just shaking my head through the whole thing….(because) I just know that’s not what God wants for us. That’s not how God tells us we should do that. That’s not what He intended it for.”
“This is what God’s Word says about it (sex); let’s talk about it,” she said. Candace revealed how she talks about sex with her kids, and she says she wants to hear how they feel about what God says and if they agree or disagree.
“We don’t as Christian culture,” talk about sex well, she said. The transition between abstinence and marriage is not done well within the Christian culture, Candace said.
