About

It's past time for some raw and candid conversations about virginity, promiscuity, and everything in between.

In a world obsessed with sex, why is the church relatively silent about it? While sex is twisted, perverted, cheapened, and idolized in popular culture, we leave young people drowning in the repercussions of misinformation, misunderstanding, and worth-robbing mistakes that could have been avoided.

Enough is enough. With raw vulnerability and a bold spirit, Mo Isom shares her own sexual testimony, opening up the conversation about misguided rule-following, virginity, temptation, porn, promiscuity, false sexpectations, sex in marriage, and more, calling us back to God's original design for sex--a way to worship and glorify Him.

Sex was God's idea. It's time we invited Him back into the bedroom.


"Mo Isom is a light in the darkness. This book is a must-read for those tired of being pressured and deceived by culture's ever-changing view and ready to rediscover sex by its God-given meaning."--Lisa Bevere, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder of Messenger International

"One of the things the church and our world need a lot more of is honesty, transparency, vulnerability, and truth all mixed together. Mo is that combination. I can't recommend this book enough!"--Jefferson Bethke, New York Times bestselling author and coauthor of Love That Lasts

"Mo is a powerful voice rising in our generation. She tells the truth, and it kills shame and invites freedom. This book will not only speak to your story but remind you of the bigger story that God is writing with our lives and our sexuality."--Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of Looking for Lovely and Let's All Be Brave

"Mo Isom is a light in the darkness with her new book, Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot.

This book is a must-read for those tired of being pressured and deceived by culture's ever-changing view and ready to rediscover sex by its God-given meaning."

"One of the things the church and our world need a lot more of is honesty, transparency, vulnerability, and truth all mixed together. Mo is that combination. She effortlessly blends her story with amazing truth found in Jesus. I can't recommend this book enough!"

Jefferson Bethke, New York Times bestselling author and coauthor of Love That Lasts

"Mo is a powerful voice rising in our generation. She tells the truth, and it kills shame and invites freedom. This book will not only speak to your story but remind you of the bigger story that God is writing with our lives and our sexuality."

Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of Looking for Lovely and Let's All Be Brave

"Anytime you see the words sex and Jesus on the cover of a book, you probably need to ask yourself what in the world that's about. We certainly hope that's what happens when people see this book, because the content on the inside is even more valuable than the title on the outside. Mo Isom is more than just a voice in the current cultural conversation about sexuality, God, and the church. She is a force. She tackles two of the stickiest subjects imaginable (sex and religion) with grace and intelligence, managing to keep the conversation reasonable and measured. She speaks with personal experience, and thus authority, on an issue that has been used as a blunt instrument to inflict damage in the current cultural wars surrounding what is right and wrong, good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable, regarding sex and faith and the church. This is an important book. We urge you to read it slowly. And you'll need a highlighter."

Clayton and Sharie King, authors of True Love Project and cofounders of Crossroads Camps and Crossroads Missions

"Mo writes her books as she lives her life--with authentic faith, courageous honesty, contagious joy, and a tenacious drive to make the world a better place! This book will renew your faith and reframe the way you think about sex, relationships, goals, and living life at your full potential."

Dave and Ashley Willis, bestselling authors and founders of StrongerMarriages.com
