Mom, Dad…What’s Sex?
Giving Your Kids a Gospel-Centered View of Sex and Our Culture
A Healthy View of Sexuality Starts with God
God created sex to be good. But our culture is drifting away from a biblical worldview and is promoting an unhealthy view of sexuality. The church has taken a defensive approach, giving our kids a long list of “do nots” with few words of hope or redemption.
Do you want something better for your child?
Rediscover God’s plan for sexuality and instill a positive perspective of sex and identity in your children. Mom, Dad…What’s Sex? will equip you to
- help your child learn what God’s Word—and today’s culture—say about sex
- understand the influence pop culture and social media have on your kid
- share a gospel-centered, hopeful message with your son or daughter
Give your child a healthy view of sexuality grounded in biblical truth—recognizing the gift of intimacy, the reality of brokenness, and the redeeming work of the Savior.

"I just read this book, and now I want to go talk with my kids about sex. And here's the best part—I'm actually looking forward to it, not dreading it. Jessica and Joel talk about hard topics in such an easy way, I'm ready to do the same. This book crushes any notion that talking about sex and talking about Jesus don't mix. Jessica and Joel are honest about sex and also persistent about looking at the Savior—a rare combination that parents and kids need today."
—Jack Klumpenhower, author of Show them Jesus: Teaching the Gospel to Kids
"Nobody wants to talk to their kids about sex. When it comes to the big conversations, we often need a field guide to help us navigate the trenches with our kids. In this fun little guidebook, Joel and Jessica give parents the tools to talk about sex in a manner that is productive, useful, and immensely scriptural. Using sound gospel-oriented reasoning, good judgment, personal stories, and helpful conversational tools, Mom, Dad...What's Sex? helps parents to have conversations about sex with their teenage children without slipping into legalism. After reading this helpful book, parents will go from feeling trepidation regarding 'the big talk' to feeling ready and empowered to help their children navigate these confusing times in a manner consistent with the gospel of Christ. In addition, Joel and Jessica Fitzpatrick are just fun people, and their personalities shine though in this book. Mom, Dad...What's Sex? is a must-have for the shelf and nightstand of parents everywhere."
—Scott L. Keith, executive director, 1517 the Legacy Project
"Like so many, I never had a conversation about sex with my parents, and in the church, sex was spoken of negatively—that we should abstain from it, or we would be condemned by it. Now that I have two children of my own who are growing up in an increasingly confusing sexual world, I'm so grateful for this book. It gives us a solid foundation of the gospel in relation to sex, and it provides practical guidance on starting the conversation with our children. Jessica and Joel remind us our ultimate help comes from the Holy Spirit, but they also show us how we can better navigate the awkward but necessary talks we need to have with our kids."
—Grace P. Cho, writer and managing editor of The Mudroom and GraceTable
"Mom, Dad...What's Sex? is everything we need to navigate the conversations we might have been avoiding. With a clear understanding of the powerful influence of our culture, Joel and Jessica provide us with gospel-centered guidelines for having open and ongoing dialogue with our kids about sex and sexuality. Your kids may be living in shame because of their sexual sin, or they may be living in pride because of their purity. Or maybe your kids are on the cusp (which is probably younger than you think) of needing to begin 'the talks.' Regardless of where you are in your parenting journey, this book will be a lifeline for you. I can't recommend it highly enough."
—Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free
"A lot of 'sex talks' focus on what not to do. While affirming moral absolutes, Jessica and Joel are convinced that the gospel fills us and our children with a larger story of redemption that includes our sexuality. This is a great book to read together with the whole family."
—Michael Horton, professor, Westminster Seminary, and author of Core Christianity
"Mom, Dad...What's Sex? provides families with a clear vision, a winsome apologetic for the Bible's sexual ethic, and practical guidance—everything from social media to porn to same-sex attraction, y'all! But to just say that would miss the point. Joel and Jessica's goal is to celebrate Christ, who enters the hot mess of our sexual brokenness and brings redemption. Get this book and let it guide your family conversations."
—Jared Kennedy, pastor of families, Sojourn Community Church, author of The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible
"Finally—a gospel-saturated book for parents that provides important insight and instruction on how to effectively engage a child's heart on the subject of sexuality. It also offers healing for parents who are still waiting for their parents to have 'the talk' and who had to figure things out on their own. In Mom, Dad...What's Sex?, Jessica Thompson and Joel Fitzpatrick take parents on a bold journey to discover God's beautiful design for sex and provide much-needed gospel-based perspective and practical advice on how to effectively combat culture's 'if it feels good, do it' narrative. This book needs to be read and reread in every home!"
—Traylor Lovvorn, speaker, podcaster, and executive director of Undone Redone
