The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

My guest for The Happy Hour # 192 is Mo Isom. Mo is a New York Times bestselling author, speaker, blogger, and former All-American goalkeeper for the Louisiana State University soccer team. Mo has been featured in Sports Illustrated, appeared on ESPN SportsCenter Top-10 Plays, Ellen, ESPN, CBS, The 700 Club, and countless other platforms. She, her husband, Jeremiah Aiken, and their two children live in Atlanta, Georgia.

When I received Mo's new book, Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot, I wasn't sure what to expect. But you guys, I loved this book and the message she brings. A little note about the show today - we discuss the issues of sex and pornography so mommas, you may first want to take a listen to the show on your own.

Mo and I dive right into the hard stuff and start talking about sexual sin. In Mo's book she discusses her past and struggle with sexual sin. At 19, she felt Jesus calling her to an intimacy fast. Mo describes how the fast reset her heart, but also when she started dating again (her future husband!), she saw how quickly the temptations could set back in and we must continually fight against our sins.

We then discuss the problems of pornography and the truth that so many women are silently struggling with this addiction. Mo describes the problem so well when she says, "it fulfills our instant urge, our instant want, but it never satisfies."  Mo and I both get fired up talking about having this conversation with our children. We both believe so strongly in the importance of heart transformation and relationship so we can be ready when the world throws out all its "false sexpectations".

I could have talked with Mo for hours and I know you're going to love our conversation too!
