It’s our favorite night of the year! An Evening With FMU. RSVP here.

Sitting down to put this Date Night Advice (DNA) post together in the afterglow of another blessed Christmas.

Not perfect, mind you.

For instance, I missed watching the new Star Wars movie this morning with the rest of my family, because one of my five kiddos came down with a fever last night.

Speaking of high temperatures, that makes for a perfect segue into the point of this post: sharing with you the TOP5 most read posts of 2019.

So take a moment to catch up on any of the following DNA posts you may have missed. Or if this is your first DNA post of your entire life, you’ll now know where to go next to read more.

After all, if these are the most-read posts you know it’s gotta be good.



#5: Sex, Love & John Crist

In the testimony of victims of sexual manipulation and abuse, there is a common misunderstanding I see arise time and time again.

That said, if you understand the truth behind this misconception, it can keep you from becoming the prey of a sexual predator.

And if you share this truth with someone else, it could save them from falling for the lie too.

This post is for the following wise individuals:

  • Women who have caught their boyfriend with porn

Can you relate to any of those situations?

Could you use a little more perspective on understanding God’s gift of sexual intimacy? We have a Hot Topic page for that too.



#1: Is it Better to Marry than to Burn?

The most-read post in our countdown two years running addresses another kind of heat: the burning passion that drives many into sexual sin.

Of course, Paul says that if you cannot exercise self-control you should marry. And, armed with this admonition, many have made a mad dash to the altar.

But is that what Paul intended?

Or watch the video presentation answering this same question from our LoveEd series: Premarital Sex & the Scriptures on our YouTube channel.

And if you’d like a little help in cooling the burning in your sex life, we created an entire Hot Topic page dedicated to sexual purity!

Let us know how we can pray for you this holiday season and in the New Year!

I hope you enjoy clicking and reading the hyperlinks of hotness above, but before you go, let us know what your favorite Date Night Advice (DNA) posts are in the comment section below. Or share a question you’d like us to address or topic you’d like us to cover in this new year.

DNA: It’s What’s For Dating

Dug this weekend’s DNA? Be a good friend and share with your friends on the social media platform of choice: Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, or Twitter.

The LoveEd discipleship series, Beyond Sex & Salvation, will empower you to prepare for relational success when it counts: BEFORE you fall in love!

It’s NOT for couples, but for any wise individual who thinks they might want to get married sometime before they die. And would like to learn how to better build healthy relationships in the meantime.

Check out all three study guides in our store. You can walk through them on your own, but it’s more fun with friends (that and it kinda makes sense to grow in relational success in actual relationships with others), so consider putting together an FMU LoveEd small group study.

Even better? And ask a rock star married couple you respect to lead it!
