We are really enjoying this book. My 16 yr old daughter and I are reading it together and discussing as we go.
She feels so validated reading this book!
She is empowered to follow God's plan for purity.

This book came into my hands while in high school at a time when I was completely frustrated with the turn my dating life had taken (I had been dumped by the young man I had thought I was destined to marry). At that point I felt like I was lost- as if no one wanted me, as if my self worth was found in my dating. I watched friend after friend have their heart broken, life turned upside down, and self confidence crushed by casual dating with no real goal in sight. Then I read this book by Joshua Harris and it suddenly made sense... I didn't NEED to date. What I needed was to find my purpose in life, to follow the path that God had for me and realize that friendships were much more valuable in my life than a "boyfriend" to be cool. I went for the next four years without dating a single guy simply because God didn't put one in front of me as part of my plan. The next man I dated was the man I am now married to-- because I had a set plan when we began dating and was up front that I intended our relationship to explore whether we were intended to marry and if not it would come to an end. Obviously it was intended because we've been married for 3 years now! :) I highly recommend this to all who worry about their "dating" status...it's not just about giving up dating, it's about taking a completely different viewpoint on relationships as a whole in what is healthy for your heart and soul and what is damaging.
