Heaven In Your Home

Apr 3, 2023

It’s not uncommon to experience painful intercourse and it might even be related to a condition that should be addressed. In today’s episode we are talking about vaginismus and painful intercourse. You will hear about the mind, body, spirit connection, why we see painful intercourse more prevalently in Christian women and some practical thoughts and resources to help find solutions.


God made your body wonderfully. You are not broken and you are certainly not alone.


Full disclosure: This episode is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any condition. I am not a medical doctor or therapist, but I do think it’s important for you to know about resources so you can be informed, talk to your doctor and get the help you need.
