Rev. Lamkin Photo Rev. Renita Marie Lamkin has penned a powerful, spirit-led analysis of God's purpose for human sexuality. Sex, when pursued God's way can inevitably lead to a beautiful, enchanted union. However, there are many individuals who are hopelessly clinging to a negative viewpoint of intimacy due to traumas and taboos of their past. Holy Moly! The Spirituality of Sexuality encourages such individuals to endure its mind-altering analysis and poignant suggestions for achieving maximum sexual fulfillment God's way. Rev. Lamkin is an Itinerant Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church and shares the pastoral position with her husband Stephen. Between them they have three young adult children and one pre-teen.  This is her first book.
