 BYU "Eternal Families" Course
It is very exciting to be included in Brigham Young University's newest required course Religion C 200 "Eternal Families." BYU has included an entire section in their course syllabus entitled, "Strengthening Marriage through Sexual Fulfillment" with information taken from our book And They Were Not Ashamed--Strengthening Marriage through Sexual Fulfillment.

It's pretty groundbreaking that BYU would include such a bold section! Sex is certainly a very important part of strong marriages and by extension--strong families. Here's hoping we may even see an entire BYU course someday on "Marital Sexuality" dedicated to helping couples strengthen their marriages intimately! ;)
