Help Get The Message Out

Cameras TV

Hello all!

It was a very productive summer for TPB.  We’re publishing a couple of new books, updating our inventory and redesigning our categories and we have done quite a few media interviews.

One of the interviews was with a major network nationally televised news show here in the United States.  Over two days, camera crews sat with us to document what we do.  We were able to share what we believe God’s heart is for sex in marriages.  This was a wonderful experience for us and the technical crew, producers and interviewer were all great to us.

To complete the interview piece for their broadcast, the news show would like to interview married Christian couples who have used marital aids in their marriage.  TPB’s interview centered around the ethics of sex in the church and why we do what we do.  We are excited to have this huge platform to expose couples to a fresh vision for sexual intimacy in the context of marriage.  We hope that some of you would prayerfully consider helping in that regard.

If you are willing to consider being interviewed, you may contact us at with your name and a day and night contact number or with your questions about this opportunity.   We will not contact you, however.  Your information will be passed to the network’s producer we’re working with who will contact you to discuss the piece and answer your questions.

Of course, this opportunity is time sensitive as we will likely forward the first few inquiries.

The Humpty Tweet

We tweeted something earlier that struck a chord with many.  The responses ranged from affirmation to inquiry to the questioning of the legitimacy of our point.

So, we thought we’d carry the discussion over to our blog to expand and expound upon what we consider to be a valid observation.

Falling Out of Love

“I don’t love you like that anymore.  I’ve fallen out of love with you.”  A short time later, papers to dissolve the marriage are served.  Divorce.  No.  This is too convenient!  What are we really saying when we declare we’ve “fallen out of love”? Read more of this post

What’s Okay? The Right Sexual Mind

Sex Lives

What's right?

1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 Romans 12:1-2

It’s false pride to believe we naturally know what sexual thoughts and actions are acceptable for us as disciples of Christ.  Many believers come to adopt a position that any sexual act Read more of this post

The Question of Submission in Marriage-Part I

Love and Marriage

Marriage and Submission

Submit.  The overall perception of this term as it applies in marriage tends to produce a negative reaction in too many of us.  In these more liberal times, even Christians try to negotiate their way out of having submission be a feature in their marriages.  Of what are we afraid?  What is it that we fear about submission?

Lust: Fantasy and Fact

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.Matthew 5:27, 28

These grave words of Christ, intended to make us free may have made many of us fearful.  And acting out of fear, we may be distancing ourselves evermore from the freedom God intended.  Sexual desire is not a bad thing!
