Did you hear about my new book:
 

“I Can’t Say That!”
Going Beyond “The Talk!”:  
Equipping your Children to Make Choices about Sexuality and Gender from a Biblical Sexual Ethic

 
Would you like a FREE copy of my workbook that goes along with the book?  I have a favor to ask first…
 
I need a boost in my Amazon reviews. If you have purchased my book – PLEASE post a review on Amazon!
 
If you did not buy the workbook – I will send you one for free if you will post a review on Amazon and then share it on Social media, tag me, and send me a pic or link so I can see it.
 
The book is currently priced as a kindle download for .99 cents – or buy the physical book – it is a better option for the work that needs to be completed with it!
 
Post a picture of your review and tag me – and send it via email to get the free workbook! 🙂
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Corey & Family.

Dr. Corey Gilbert is proud ot announce his new book (and workbook) for families and parents entitled, “I Can’t Say That! Going Beyond ‘The Talk’: Equipping Your Children to Make Choices About Sexuality and Gender From a Biblical Sexual Ethic.”  

Learn about and solidify your beliefs on tough subjects. These issues are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what our children are being forced to navigate at increasingly younger ages. As a parent, are you leading your family in conversations, so that your voice is the first one they hear on these sensitive issues? Do you know what the Bible says – and doesn’t say – on the issues surrounding sexuality and gender? Do your children know what you believe and why you believe it?

You are not alone if you feel as though you don’t know how and when to have these conversations. Many parents worry about having “The Talk” with their children because they are concerned about bringing it up too early, they are uncomfortable talking about sex, or they feel unprepared to answer questions that their child might ask. In “I Can’t Say That!,” Dr. Gilbert walks parents through age-appropriate conversations and teaches parents how to create a culture of conversation through micro-conversations.

Be the leader for your family that you have always wanted to be – giving your children a solid biblical sexual ethic.

In his roles as a counselor and professor, Dr. Gilbert has heard repeatedly from young adults that they never had conversations about the complicated issues surrounding sexuality with their parents and they wish that they had. His motivation in “I Can’t Say That!” is to equip parents with the information they need so that THEY can in turn equip their children to make choices from a biblical sexual ethic.

Dr. Gilbert is a dad to 3, husband, University Professor, Speaker, Licensed Professional Counselor, Executive, Marriage, and Family Life Coach and Author. He loves to serve face to face or online helping couples and families build a biblical sexual ethic, grow beyond an affair, find freedom from bad habits and addictions, and grow strong marriages and families. He is the Founder and Owner of HealingLives, LLC. Book him to speak or hire him at HealingLives.com or drcoreygilbert.com

Community Wins! Find and Be Just That.

I cannot imagine going through the rough spots in my life without key people that were there for me. At times these people were one’s I didn’t realize we close. Times of crisis reveal. These times reveal who our true friends are. These moments of revelation bring to the surface the truth about our lives, how we have lived, and what may be missing. Have you had a time where no one showed up – or you had no one to call? I sure have – and it lit a fire in me for what I was missing. 

My hope and prayer for you is that you find yourself in these inevitable moments and are in awe at the support and friendships that are present. Don’t do marriage without help. Know that parenting was never meant to be a solo sport. Reach out for help as needed. Band together with others and be a support for them in areas you are strong in – and allow them to be support with their strengths. This is a beautiful picture of God’s perfect design in humanity. If we are not careful we see and hear about the dark side of mankind and we pull away and are less likely to build those lifelines that can save us in difficult times.

Sickness – In life, sickness will come. For some it may be life threatening, or nearly so. For some of us it may be a child. We need one another in these difficult times. Reach out for help, Ask! Be that friend for another in a time of sickness.      

Parenting – This is an impossible task. It is all an experiment. Listen to others that have gone before you. Reach out for help. Never do this alone. Find groups to be a part of that help you as a parent, community groups, church groups, support groups, or something like this. Band together with like-minded friends. My personal focus is on raising your children in a Biblical Sexual Ethic. Others have their strengths. Band together. Reach out to others in need and be available to them.         

Conflict in Marriage – This is potentially an impossible crossroads for so many couples. Get help. Know there is hope. Find the beautiful gift of forgiveness – freedom in vulnerability – clarity in healthy relationships. Marriage is meant to be a sacrament. Hold it up as such – sacred. Get help in difficult times in your marriage. Be an example to others as well.       

Loss – Life gets hard. We have losses that impact our lives forever – and we are never the same. Surviving these incredibly difficult times has immeasurable hope when in community.

We live – and we potentially die based off of our community. Don’t go it alone. I love what I do – and am incredibly humbled by families and couples that invite me into their stories to help them navigate rough waters. Build community. Be community. Find community. Be hope!

Parents – Membership – Micro-Conversations

Short and sweet – the concept of “The Talk” is not helpful. In all my years of research and teaching I have found a theme among 20-somethings – that for those that their parents had “the talk” – it was way too late. For some they were teaching their parents about stuff during these “talks.”

So – what I propose are micro-conversations. We begin planting seeds intentionally from birth in the areas we want our children to grow a solid belief system. This goes for all topics, manners, beliefs, and ethics. So – with what I do – may we learn to invest in our children’s sexual ethic.

I have a membership site built for you as a parent that I am launching aimed to give teaching and training for parents on a biblical sexual ethic. In my new membership site you will be empowered to have micro-conversations with your 1 and 2 year old that are age appropriate and prepares them for the micro-conversations you have with them at ages 3-6. These prepare them for those micro-conversations you will intentionally have with them from ages 7-10. As they grow we are meant to prepare them.

What I find in my counseling and research is that the main source of knowledge and learning for most of our Christian children are from porn, the internet, and friends – scary sources. Another big finding is that many 20-something year olds wish their parents had been a safe place to have these hard conversations.

Prepare. Lead. Be Confident. Know your own personal theology. Pass that along intentionally and strategically to your children so that they can make wise informed decisions and live from a solid ETHOS – a biblical sexual ethic.

Your Children’s Beliefs are Established Earlier than You Think!

Parents of babies through age 10. THIS IS FOR YOU! Parents of children ages 11+ be aware. You are building into your children each and every day a worldview, an ETHOS about the world, those different than you, grace, war, politics, church, and sexuality. Have you thought through what guidelines you want for your children in their teenage years relating to dating, sex, birth control, and even friendships? Let me tell you a secret – those conversations are TOO LATE if you begin “going there” when they are ages 11+. You have already left your imprint, whether it was intentional or not. SO – the prescription – go there early. Teach them well, intentionally, and hopefully from a strong, healthy sexual ethic that you have decided upon and are eager to teach them and lead them towards as they make it theirs.

If you want help developing your ETHOS surrounding sexuality, gender, dating, marriage, and relationships – check out my new book coming out soon, the workbook, discounted coaching options, and even a very low cost membership site where we ill have discussions on hard topics and help teach you and lead you to have those hard conversations and lead your family with confidence. Your ETHOS matters. Their ETHOS is established earlier than you think. GO THERE!!!!  Lead from the front. I would be honored to help you succeed.
