    Intentionally Living presents, "Confessions of a Single Celibate Man"

    in Christianity

    Celibacy a viable choice, a worthy commitment, and a sacred relationship. 

    How do you walk away from a fornicating relationship? How do you date in holiness? How to avoid intimacy during times of vulnerability? 

    The thought of celibacy and or marriage is frightening for some, yet appealing to others—both marriage and singleness involve being self-sacrificing as well as self-giving, and both rise from an engagement of love and of faith.Often singleness is classified with the language of lack, rather than the language of a fidelity to its purpose.  Author Lee Hardy Jr. will share his personal testimony of breaking soul ties and his re-commitment to Christ as he waited for his God-fearing wife. September 15, 2015  12:00 noon CST.

    Young, Single & Celibate in the City

    in Women

    It's natural to desire to be in a relationship. And if you beliee in "happily ever after" then that's what you desire. And yet a lot of women, particularly black women, aren't coupled up. But why? Is the so-called shortage of good black men real or a myth? Have many black women given up on finding a good brother? Would they rather be single than date and marry interracially? And is this a viable option for black women? Can a woman be single, celibate and happy?

    "Some black women choose to be single rather than settle, but rarely is this discussed as a real explanation for why some black women are unmarried," writes Angela Stanley, a researcher at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University. (Black, Female & Single, NYTimes.com, 12/10/11) 

    We'll hear Dionne Renae's story as to why she is, at 34, Young, Single & Celibate in the City. That's Thursday, April 30, 6:30pm ET on She Struts Radio. Tune in.

    Sex: Safe -Condoms...) or Celibate- No Sex ?

    How to Live a Life of Celibacy

    Whether you are entering the priesthood or doing it for personal reasons, remaining celibate can be a difficult thing to do. With these instructions and support from those around you (and perhaps a guide from above), you can lead a celibate life. Taking a vow to a life of celibacy is very challenging, and it is not an easy choice to make if the ones that are close to you are not supportive. There are benefits to a life of celibacy. If you find interesting things to do you can avoid the temptation to break your vow.

    1.Make sure this is something you are very serious about. It can be a great thing if you are doing it for the right reasons.

    2.Find a friend or mentor that has gone through this period in life and ask questions about his or her reason for making their choice.

    3.Avoid listening to others' feelings about your decision, if they do not agree with yours. It is your choice and yours alone. Instead, talk to friends and people that will not judge you, or this choice you have made.

    4.Get involved in different hobbies; better not to be around many people you may be sexually attracted to for a while if this can be avoided. You could become involved with some more spiritual or personal activities instead.

    5.Try to find people who you think will understand you and your choices. Doing this alone can be very challenging. Tell them you need some moral support.

    6.Avoid temptation, especially at the start of this lifestyle. Do not put yourself in situations that might lead to sexual activity, such as close quarters with someone to whom you are physically attracted. Don't spend time alone and secluded together unless you absolutely know that you can control of yourself in that situation.

    A Journey to Enlightenment with Author/Poet Lyric Benson Fergusson

    in Spirituality

    At the age of 19, suddenly faced with a major health crisis including chronic physical pain and the loss of a dear friend in the Twin Towers collapse of 9/11, today's guest Lyric Benson was in such extreme emotional and physical agony, she began to pray. And, surprised as she was, that moment changed her life.

    Finding her way to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Transcendental Meditation, she ultimately became a celibate monk and spent the next eight years in meditation for up to 10 hours a day. In the silence she awakened to God's presence through a state of extreme bliss. 

    Today Lyric Benson Fergusson deeply experiences God as a manifestation in everyday experiences, in everything we touch, in every human being. She brings her message of peace, love and divine realization through her unconventional poetry book, French Kissing God: A Journey to Enlightenment. The collection's exuberant, pulsating, passionate, visceral verses are the author's hallmark. Her words let us join her on a journey to enlightenment. Regardless of one's religion or spiritual tradition, anyone who picks up this book will find it eye-opening, heartening, humorous and boundary breaking. 

    Lyric Benson Fergusson grew up in Hollywood as the daughter of actor/director Robby Benson and actress//rock star Karla DeVito. She is an enthusiastic screenwriter, poet, actress, photographer, and activist who spent many years as a teacher of The Wholeness, a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating the full awakening of humanity. She has been deeply transformed and inspired by their breakthrough technologies, which bring each individual's awareness back to the love and truth resonating in all of our hearts.

    Be sure to tune in and be inspired as Lyric spreads her messages of peace, love and divine realization.

    Living for God: Single and Celibate

    in Self Help

    It is a blessing to be able to live for God. The peace, wisdom, healing that comes along with the walk is amazing. However, christians go through life trials as anyone else does. This is more challenging when God calls us to a higher standard and guideline to walk in purity and holiness set apart from the world through faith in him.The enemy knows this and he definitely makes it that much harder because if he is an emeny of God, then what are christians considered to him as well?

    Therefore, living single can be a major challenge as a christian especially these days. We are called to live celibate until marriage (or until death if we do not marry), but that is not a popular lifestyle these days. Being a christian does not exempt you from having desires to be physically intimate as some might assume. On the other hand, through experience I can tell you that nothing is impossible with the strength of God. Even though I did not follow what I was told growing up in church (for many reasons I have mentioned throughout shows), that does not mean that I am still not expected to walk in celibacy or that I cannot. So I hope that is hope for those who have walked astray in the past.

    This show is for virgins and nonvirgins (teens and adults) because if you are single and a christian we are walking in this together. Yes, experiences vary from person person based on past experience with sex or lack there of, level of relationship with God, gender, age, culture, how one was raised, parental guidance and experience, whether never married/married before, whether it is a major struggle or it isn't, and more.

    Philippians 2:15 "That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;"

    Show with: @king__Joshua (He's my age and he will be brining a male's perspective to the show)
