Editor’s Note: We have been blessed by amazing volunteers within our ministry. Below is a testimony from one of our volunteers who helped with the research for The Fantasy Fallacy. We’re very thankful to hear how this project impacted her!
No other book could have come at the perfect timing for me!
It’s always a complete honor to be a part of what Shannon is doing to wake up this world for Jesus! Knowing that a dream has been birthed and will be unfolding for the potential of tens of millions to view…and to be part of it…there’s not much that is more fulfilling and satisfying! Such an awakening, humbling experience it has been to take part of the research team for her new book release, The Fantasy Fallacy.
Birthing knowledge, wisdom and an awareness into my bones is always a beautiful thing…
The research that we found to back up the information in this book has opened my eyes and given me knowledge beyond my years! Being single and keeping myself for marriage, I started off this journey with knowing very little and being extremely limited and quite naive to the topic of sexual fantasies. Many times, I felt ashamed and guilty for even thinking the purest thought of what my marriage bed would look like. And to actually go to the place of how it would all go down…two bodies meshing together. The thought was completely disgusting to me not to mention that at this point, I might as well have been in hell for thinking of it! For many years, I was insecure and very scared of actually having sex with yes, even my one day, husband! Fear and anxiety would overwhelm me. Then there were those few times where I would be totally okay with thinking of my sexual fantasies with my beloved husband. Needless to say, I had no balance and I was totally confused.
Why join the research team?
You might ask why I then agreed to come on board with the research team. This is exactly why…because I had no balance and I was totally confused…pretty obvious who got the short end of the stick here, huh? 😉 I did it because I do know that sexuality is a beautiful gift from God and it was time that I embrace it mainly because of the season that I was about to embark in. I knew that I was going to learn and grow from this. It was important to me that I glean and learn from a trustworthy, healthy source and that is who Shannon is in my life. She is one that has great insight to the topic! She loves the Lord and has a personal relationship with Him. She writes from a Christian perspective and I completely trust and believe in her.
It was such a God-ordained book for such a time as this. And me…it was the perfect timing to come on board and brighten my horizons and change my way of thinking. Carving out time to research different topics and getting statistics on things such as sex before, outside and in marriage and fascinations on pleasure, pain and power, etc…has given me an awareness and knowledge of where our world is today and where we hope to take it. Being behind the scenes and spending well spent time gathering information for such a book has got to be one of the biggest extremely fulfilling accomplishments that I have ever achieved. It’s not all about how I can create something to change the world but more of how I can be part of helping someone change the world…this is what the research team did. I played a part of HIS plan which will one day (SOON) bring awareness, freedom and liberty to thousands and thousands of confused, rejected, naive, pure, full of condemnation, hurting people in our world today.
The days to come…
The research that I personally did for this book and the research done by my teammates has given me a healthy outlook of looking at things from a Christian perspective…especially since I am on my way to being part of a beautiful marriage that will be enlightened by a hot, steamy sex life! How incredible it feels to have this wisdom right in the beginning of marriage so that our foundation can be solid, healthy and ready for anything! This sure does beat learning and being drilled from a worldly, ungodly perspective that the media brings us on a daily basis! The research and how Shannon put it all together has changed my thought life for the better! I am so grateful to have been educated while in the process of educating others on things that before brought deep confusion to me.
Looking ahead to a beautiful marriage experience with lots of complete, intimate, guilt-free moments in the marriage bed,
