New Growth Press just published a very unique study for women in conjunction with Harvest USA. This resource, Sexual Sanity for Women: Healing from Sexual & Relational Brokenness, fills a tremendous gap in small group resources for women. As a pastor and former campus minister, I have been aware of the need for women to have studies that address issues of sexuality and lust, especially when a third of visitors to porn sites on the internet are women. Sex and lust are typically seen unfairly as "every MAN's battle" causing more shame for women who struggle in secret.
The layout for this study is a 90 minute small group of women. My recommendation would be to create a group dedicated to dealing with sexual issues for women rather than placing this study on an existing group. The 20 sessions take each participant through an understanding of the human heart as a 'Tree" with our actions as "fruit", our worldview as "shoots", our God-given desires as "roots", external influences as "soil", and the condition of our heart as "seed" . Time is taken to think through temptations and future growth. I highly recommend this study as an example of good theology and compassion combined with excellent practical applications. This book is easy to understand and well-planned. May this book give hope to women who struggle in silence with pornography, sexual fantasy, and illicit sexual encounters, so that in Christ the whole church may find forgiveness and hope for change.
