Well, this is my 260th article written for Christian Nymphos. I have enjoyed contemplating with my readers the deep and mysterious ways of the kingdom of God. I have been challenged to allow God to shape me and use the many facets of this ministry to refine my character. I have been humbled by those who took the time to say “amen” to my words expressed here. And now, with this as my final article, I feel compelled to reflect on the highlights of the last four years of ministry here.
- seeing the stats show that 1oo people had seen our blog.
- the time we had over 100,000 hits in a single day.
- the day we broke 1,000,000 hits.
- realizing that people were using rather general phrases about sex in search engines and our blog was being listed on the first page of links.
- getting emails asking us for interviews for everything from documentaries to international television and radio programs.
Some of my favourite articles that I wrote were:
- Giving Up on the Good Girl
- Dressing Sexy
- The Peasant Princess
- Shelley Lubben: A Porn Star Set Free
- The Balancing Act of Beauty
Some of the hardest articles for me to write were:
Our blog has evolved so much over the last 4 years. Remember the Position of the Week series? Or the Monday Missions? I enjoyed so many interesting and, sometimes, controversial discussions. What does modesty mean and how does it apply to me? Is masturbation really OK? You mean some Christian couples have anal sex? Can we just learn how to love one another even if we don’t agree? It’s been quite a ride and I’ve loved being a part of it.
I am so thankful to the women who have invested their time into reading here and getting involved in the discussions. I loved moderating comments from those of you who had proven to be respectful and helpful in your contributions so much so that I hardly had to even think about it before I approved your comment. There have been many, many of you over the years and it’s been great seeing people get involved and be a part of this community.
And I have loved the ladies I have worked along side of to make this blog happen. These women are amazing and they bless me all the time. They are there for me in situations when I can’t necessarily go to all my other friends. I still remember one night when my husband was out and I was feeling tempted to find erotica online, but instead I told Spicy Nutmeg, Cumingirl and the other friends in our circle about it. And there was one with a scripture to encourage me. Another one with a prayer of intercession. Another with a word of encouragement. All of them reminding me that I wasn’t standing alone against my sin. I was real and they didn’t judge me for it. I am blessed to be able to call them my sisters in the Lord.
I am thankful to my husband and friends who encouraged me in this ministry. Praying for me if I was doing an interview or telling me how important it was for me to be a voice encouraging women to embrace their sexuality in a godly way. I am humbled that the Lord called me to it for a season and used me in countless women’s lives. I pray that all the gold God released through me here would remain with those who caught it and that any words I spoke in carelessness, out of step with the lord, would fall off of you. May your marriages be rich and full and may you experience an ever increasing intimacy with your husband, that you may be able to say each and every year, “This year was better than last.”
I bless you and thank you, again, for the grace you have extended to me. Farewell, my friends!
