By God’s Design

Whether you are explaining birth, reproduction, or conceiption, I have found the easiest way to start the conversation is with these 3 words:”By God’s design…….”. Letting these words lead the way allows you and your child to enter into the WONDER of it all!

“By God’s design, a baby has a special place to grow called the uterus”

“By God’s design,  this is how the baby leaves the uterus (or womb) and is born”

 “By God’s design, there are seeds or eggs deep inside of every living thing”

 “By God’s design, a husband and wife were made to be one”.

Perhaps one of  the perplexing parts of talking to your children about sex is knowing how to even start your first sentence. When Dave and I were searching for a way to begin those conversations, these three words served us well. We found security in the fact that the original idea of sex was not of our own making.

Hollywood didn’t think it up it either.

Every part of sex…the simple and the complex has a Designer, and His design includes purpose, and creativity. When we start with Him and His design, it all becomes much less complicated.

    so it happened! it finally happened! i was praying for a natural flow of conversation to lead into this topic with our daughter. today my niece-in-law emailed pictures (those fabulous 4D kinds) of the baby boy they are expecting in about 5 weeks, and our daughter was with me when i read the email and looked at the pictures. caroline’s first question was is it going to hurt when the baby comes out. from here i channeled my “inner maryflo”. after this curtain of conversation, another one began. “have you ever wondered how the baby got in there?” having heard you a few times over the years we have been talking about seeds for a long time, but this was a great time for review. “by god’s design, deep inside every living thing there is a seed waiting to grow. when mommy slices the apples you see the seeds, when mommy cuts the avocado you see the seed on the inside. by god’s design only apples will grow from the apple seeds only flowers will grow from flower seeds.” at this point caroline says, “oh mommy! it’s like every seed is unique!” i couldn’t have said it better myself! thank you!
