Heart to Heart

Explicit Movement Parent Conference

Heart to Heart

Is sex love?

  • How do I reach my teen’s heart to embrace God’s joyous design for sex and sexuality?
  • How can I influence my youth to find love in the right places?
  • How can I talk confidently about sex and sexuality topics with my teen?

Youth are immersed in a sexualized culture that bombards them with confusing messages about sexuality. Parents often struggle in how to influence their teen’s heart and mind. Explicit seeks to support you with practical tips to connect heart-to-heart with your youth and engage the difficult questions about relationships, purity, and sexuality!
