Got a Story to Share?

This almost never happens, but we find ourselves with some empty slots on the publication schedule. So if you’ve been waiting to send in your encouraging tale of marital bliss, now would be a great opportunity. The turnaround time is the shortest it’s been in a long while. Usually, there’s about a three- or four-week wait between submission and publication, but right now, it could be a matter of days!

Now, if you are worried that you can’t write well, know that the intended purpose of sharing these vignettes is to inspire passion and hope, ask about and share things that help or don’t, and to give glory to the God who created us as sexual beings who can connect and give each other great pleasure within the marriage bed. And the MH editors are really good at their job and can help polish your story so that its message can shine. If you feel so called, please don’t hesitate to submit it.

When we write an MH story:

  • We remind ourselves that our spouses bless us with the gift of their sexuality and their acceptance and responses to ours.
  • We affirm to each other that loving sex between man and wife is holy, good, and pure—not shameful or embarrassing.
  • And we tell the world that passionate, hot sex is something to talk about and look forward to within marriage. (After all, we’d hate for anyone to reject the truth of the Gospel simply because they think that obedience to Christ means having to do without great sex!)

If you are single, widowed, or no longer married, you can still uphold these truths. Fictional stories, memories of the past, and dreams for the future are also good methods of conveying those points. And your post doesn’t have to be about something that has actually happened as long as it could happen within the bounds of Biblical monogamy. Look for the fiction tag on the submission form and weave your tale!

We’ll leave you with this bit of encouragement taken from 1 Corinthians, Chapter 10:

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all things for the glory of God… I also please everyone in all things, not seeking my own benefit but the benefit of the many, so that they may be saved.

Love in Christ,

Missy and Calvin

    OK… I just submitted a story but I have a journal entry from a rip roaring sex session while on vacation in Australia a few years ago. I will go over and re-write that journal entry and make it into a true story to submit to MH. Thanks for all you do to keep this site up and running!

    Question about story length now that the Ignite stories are gone. Regular stories used to be under 2000 words and those over became Ignite stories. Do stories still need to be under 2000 words or is that lifted for now?

      Great question! For now, submit stories of any length over 300 words. If they are super long and we can find places to split them into smaller sections that still give a good story arc (beginning, middle, end) for each part, we may make them into a series.

    I love MH. My husband and I have more stories. I wonder if he could share from his point of view on my account? It could be a joined account and we can share together.

    Given the answer MH gave to Honeymooners, my husband tells me I should write a few more and submit them sooner than later. I guess he'll be doing a bit more cooking and chores while I get to it. Hope to have some soon!
