Christian women are hungry for good information about sex – and not just the same old message – “do it for your husband.” Even though men and women are different, sex is just as important for wives as it is for husbands. We need to figure it out so that BOTH spouses enjoy sex and make it a priority. God desires us to have strong marriages that are intimate and connected.
Women that hear us speak are pleasantly surprised by our relaxed and engaging speaking style that results in a comfortable and respectful discussion about sex. We challenge women to think beyond what they have been told and instead seek God’s desire for their marriage. We always point back to God because His design is what we measure against. Our hope is that women leave motivated to lean into intimacy with God and with their husband – and equipped with practical applications to move toward making deeper intimacy a reality.
Invite us to speak when the Awaken-Love study launches at your church, to share God’s truth at MOPS, women’s events or retreats, or to simply begin a discussion about sex. Dare to address a topic that is rarely talked about by Christians, but is so needed. You might be surprised by the response of women who are ready to take a step to discover God’s best for their marriage bed.
Ruth Buezis began the Awaken-Love ministry out of her own experiences, struggles, and transformation. Her journey began after studying Song of Songs, when Ruth realized that she is God’s beloved, which led to a deeper intimacy with God and her husband. In 2012, God called her to share how this new intimacy and freedom transformed her marriage. He filled Ruth with the boldness to share His truth on a subject that the church often avoids: sex! Her heart’s cry is for Christians to grow in intimacy with God and their spouses so that they are fully known and unashamed. In addition to teaching Awaken-Love classes, she helps lead women’s Bible study, serves on her church’s Marriage Ministry team, mentors women, and is an integral part of a church plant. Ruth has been happily married to her husband Jim for over 28 years and has raised four incredible daughters. She attends Plymouth Covenant Church in Plymouth, MN.
Melanie Lloyd has experienced God’s mercy and redemption first hand. Melanie entered marriage with an assortment of sexual baggage that limited her freedom in her marriage bed. After years of praying for deeper intimacy, God used Bible studies on forgiveness and sexual healing to lead her to set aside the lies and shame associated with sex and her past. The Lord gave her a new vision of freedom, vulnerability, trust and unconditional love for her marriage bed. It was a total overhaul and sex with her husband became holy, emotional, and something that she craved. Melanie is passionate about sharing God’s healing power and encouraging Christians to grow deeper in intimacy with God and with their spouse. She has been married to her husband Brian for 13 years. They have two elementary age sons and attend Grace Covenant Church in Austin, TX.
