Reviewers continue to rave about And the Bride Wore White: Seven Secrets To Purity. But the greatest proof of it's effect is in the lives of tens of thousands of young women who've embraced the book's message. Each chapter of And the Bride Wore White begins with a narrative of Dannah Gresh's young love life, taken from her own teenage journals. She transparently shares her struggles and successes, her moments of pain followed by healing and the moments of triumph. This story-line grips the young reader while they learn statistically proven risk-reduction factors. The end result are usable "how-to-say-no" skills that can reduce the risk of a young woman's heart being broken by sexual sin. In this update, Dannah and her friends share open letters of encouragement to young women, one for those who chose life and another to those who chose abortion, a letter to teen girls addicted to pornography and another to girls who have experienced sexual abuse, and many more specific to a young woman's unique circumstances. Over 250,000 copies sold!
What others are saying . . .
Dannah has tasted the pain and regret of opening God's good gift of sex before its proper time. She has also experienced the sweet healing, freedom, and joy of walking in repentance, forgiveness, and grace. Her message is one every teen girl-and each of their moms-needs to hear. I'm so thankful for the way she is allowing God to use her story, grounded in His Word, to speak into the lives of young women. God is using her to speak into the lives of young women in an engaging and powerful way. I wish I could persuade every teen girl-and every mom-to read this book. ~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss, co-author with Dannah Gresh of Lies Young Women Believe
Dannah challenges young women to say "yes" to what the white wedding dress represents. In a warm, easy-to-read style, she counters the message of this sex-crazed culture with priceless pearls of truth. ~ Mary A. Kassian, author of Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild
I admire Dannah Gresh in so many ways. Her ministry is moving; her writing is relevant; she is a role model to women of all ages and seasons of life. As a survivor, speaker and author on the topic of sexual abuse, I constantly see and hear firsthand the pain of sexually broken and I understand the deep need for Dannah's message. The re-release of her best-seller And The Bride Wore White is an answer to the cry of our culture. This book is a timeless classic that will bring healing and hope to all generations. ~ Nicole Bromley, speaker & author, oneVOICEenterprises
I first read And The Bride Wore White when it was an unpublished manuscript and I was a freshman in college. I devoured it in a single setting and the lessons I learned made a huge impact on my life. as a woman who has now been married more than a decade I still remember and cherish the lessons Dannah presents in this book. Dannah doeswhat other authors do not by moving beyond God's call to purity and outlining a plan to make waiting possible and desirable. This book gave me the blueprint to build a pure marriage, a gift that I am eternally grateful for. Consider And The Bride Wore White a must read for every girl who's ever dreamed of a pure and holy marriage. ~ Erin Davis, author of Graffiti: Learning to See the Art in Ourselves
The loss of virginity is not simply a physical state of being, but effects the emotional, mental and spiritual lives of every girl. Which is why I appreciate Dannah Gresh and her passion to see girls not only value their virginity, but why the ought to do so. With vulnerability, humor and grace, this book provides girls with the tools they need to take ownership of their bodies, minds and hearts. ~ Crystal Renaud, author of Dirty Girls Come Clean
Human sexuality is at the center of most of the bitter cultural struggles being waged in our day. Far too many young women don't know right from wrong when it comes to their bodies and their minds because they have bought into the low moral standards promoted on television and in contemporary movies and music. In a friendly, personal manner, Dannah Gresh helps her readers understand that sexuality is a beautiful gift from God and that He intends it to be reserved for marriage. I highly recommend And the Bride Wore White to any young woman who wants God's best for her life. ~ Richard Land, President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission & host, For Faith & Family Radio
Dannah has a fresh way of sharing important truths we need to hear. In an age of moral decline even among our church youth, this message is needed now more than ever. Give Dannah your ear. You won't be disappointed. ~ Anita Lustrea, host/producer, Midday Connection
As a mother of two teenage daughters, I cannot think of any book more beautifully inspiring than And the Bride Wore White. My daughters loved Dannah's insights, her humor, and her call for a life without regrets. I am deeply grateful for the realistic role model she is for my daughters...She has changed their lives, and in doing so she has changed mine. ~ Tammy Maltby, author and co-host of Emmy-nominated Aspiring Women
gcwfarmgirlOhioAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wish I had this as a teenMarch 20, 2015gcwfarmgirlOhioAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Though I'm not the target demographic for this book-it's aimed towards preteen/teenage girls while I'm in my mid-twenties-when I started reading I couldn't put it down.
And the Bride Wore White is written for Christian women who desire to live their lives to please God.
Unlike some reviews I've read, the author never states that sex is bad, or even suggests that the man owns the women no matter his request....She does open your eyes to how hurtful sin can be, and how even years later it can haunt you. And most of all, she talks about forgiveness and moving forward.
Dannah encourages readers to honor God with their bodies and to be faithful to their future husband...I have to note here, that she doesn't ever talk about if you don't ever get married, she always implies that someday it will happen...which I think is an important topic to cover.
I'm in my twenties with no suitor in sight, all the while all my younger friends are engaged or married...
There's one sentence I loved, it really made me stop and think and it actually didn't have anything to do with sex.
We've all heard about making a list of your dream husband, what's his personality, hobbies, etc....well, somewhere in the book someone mentioned writing out a list of requirements for the women who'd marry your dream husband. Do you measure up?
To often we focus on what he must be, and not what we must be. We want him to love going to church, all the while we're sleeping in on Sundays...
I just thought that that's something more young adults need to be taught, becoming the man/women your future spouse deserves; and even if you're not destined to be married, you're becoming the best christian man/women honoring God...
In quick summery, I believe any teenager, young women or even adult women (though you would have to remind yourself the writing for for young girls-not adults) who desires to live a pure lifestyle and save themselves for marriage, or maybe if you're questioning why wait, should read this book! Dannah writes in such a loving, understanding and nonjudgmental way it feels as if you're having a conversation with a dear friend and mentor.

TanyaSpokane, WAAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Our Purity Starts from our HeartSeptember 23, 2011TanyaSpokane, WAAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed this book because it really showed me how my purity starts from the heart. Whatever I think that is what I will say. If I think bad thoughts about my father and I do not change them, then, when I would get married I would start doing the same thing about my husband. I think that as we grow up, if we (girls) don't change our relationship with our dads we will try to satisfy our bodies and emotions with a many love. But all of it all starts from the heart- How we look at God and ourselves. We need to keep our hearts pure.

It started some great discussions and explained things in a way all of the girls understood. We were thrilled to be able to send them all home with a copy.
