How to Be Bold in Love with Jessica Frew

My guest today is my good friend, Jessica Frew, who is a wife, ex-wife, mom, and step-mom. We are talking about the challenges she has faced and how she has come out of them even stronger. She talks about her two marriages and how she, her husband and her ex started a podcast together called, Husband in Law. They discuss how they have created a healthy family and working relationship with each other and how they have chosen to show up for their daughter!

She talks about how to keep fighting even when life deals you a seemingly impossible hand, and how feeling love, respect and safety with your spouse can truly create that emotional and intimate connection we all long for. With this beautiful connection, couples are able to express themselves and be vulnerable and share those parts of themselves with each other that otherwise might feel uncomfortable.

In her practice, she helps women understand that they are worthy as they are and to stop selling themselves short. She talks about the importance of understanding your self worth and taking ownership of any situation you’re given in life to start showing up as the person you want to be. Once you understand this concept, it doesn’t matter what anyone else does or thinks! 

You can connect with Jessica on Facebook at @jessicafrew, Instagram at @husband_in_law or on her podcast, Husband in Law.

How to Teach Your Kids about Pornography with Kristen Jenson

As a part of the Sexual Health Series, today we are chatting with the amazing Kristen Jenson, author of the best-selling Good Pictures Bad Pictures series. She shares with us; how important it is to talk with our children about pornography. 

Kristen loves helping and empowering parents. She encourages them and equips them with what to do WHEN (not if) their child sees pornography. These books give children a simple and age appropriate definition of what a bad picture is, and what to do when they see it.

At what age, is it appropriate to talk to your child about pornography?? Well… “At what age does your child have access to the internet”? WOAH! A big eye opener. 

Even with the best technology and ALL of the filters we put in place. There will come a time, when your child is staring at a screen full of adult content. Will they know what to do when they see it? Will they come home and tell you about it?

Kristen teaches us the importance of having these difficult conversations early on. It actually strengthens the parent-child bond when you face these challenges together and even more, helps our children have healthy sex lives when they are married.

Some of the resources mentioned in the episode are: Healthy Sex Vs. Porn Sex and Protect Young Minds Resources

If you have additional questions about your child and pornography visit ProtectYoungMinds.org or you can grab yourself a copy of these books over on Amazon! You can also find resources on Facebook, Instagram @protectyoungminds, or Twitter @ProtectYM

Be sure to subscribe to this podcast, so you don’t miss an episode and starting in July, every Friday, we’ll be talking to couples as part of our Conversations with Interracial Couples Series.
