Sex & Relationships LDS Book Club

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

Navigating sexuality as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can sometimes be confusing. Yet at the same time, with the opportunity to inhabit a body in our earthly existence comes the opportunity to enjoy a sexual connection with our partner. This private and sacred power can be difficult to talk about. Wouldn't it be great to have a space where you can ask anything in the company of people who share your values? How about learning through various books that help you explore your own sexuality and your relationship?

You are invited to our Sex & Relationships LDS Book Club! This group is hosted and facilitated by LuAnn C. Oliver, LCSW, owner of Heartswell, a mental health provider serving Arlington, VA in person and the states of VA, MD, DC, and GA virtually. This will be an in-person group with the option to join virtually.

Our first meeting will take place on November 1, 2023 at 8:00-9:15 p.m. at 4001 9th Street N, Suite 220, Arlington, VA 22203. The group is free of charge, but you must be registered to attend.

LuAnn has nearly 20 years of experience in counseling individuals and couples. She is certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy and has extensive training in sex therapy. She helps cou

ples and individuals explore and develop their sexuality to find meaning and joy in long-term monogamous relationships.

Our first book, Come As You Are, has become known as the sex bible. A renowned author and speaker, Dr. Nagoski thoroughly helps us

understand the dual control model of sexual desire as well as the impact of stress, body image, sexual history, vulnerability (and other topics) on our sexual connection.

Please reach out to LuAnn at with any questions.
