  • How and When to Tell Your Kids about Sex, a comprehensive guidebook for parents
  • The Story of Me, for ages 3–5
  • Before I was Born, for ages 5–8
  • What’s the Big Deal?, for ages 8–12
  • Facing the Facts, for ages 12–16

With over one million copies sold in the series, God’s Design for Sex has helped countless families establish a Christian understanding of sex and sexuality. The principal book in the series, How and When to Tell Your Kids about Sex, won the EPCA Medallion of Excellence Christian Book Award. In this updated version of the series, Stan and Brenna Jones tackle today’s pressing issues surrounding sexuality and technology with new chapters on pornography, same-sex marriage, gender identity confusion, and more.

Jamie Ivey, best-selling author of If You Only Knew and host of The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast, said of the God’s Design for Sex series: “Talking with your kids about sex sometimes feels like the hardest thing to do in the world, but these books have helped discussions happen in my household for over ten years now. I’ve also been recommending these books to listeners of my podcast for years and years. These books will help you guide a conversation between you and your child that glorifies God and his desire for our sexuality.”

Stan, a clinical psychologist, and his wife, Brenna, wrote the original versions of their books on sex education while their three children were young. Stan served as provost and professor of psychology at Wheaton College for many years. Earlier, he led in establishing Wheaton’s PsyD program in Clinical Psychology. Brenna serves in a professional ministry of discipleship and spiritual counsel for women. Carolyn Nystrom, author of over 80 children’s books, wrote Before I Was Born.
