Guardians of Purity: A Parent's Guide to Winning the War Against Media, Peer Pressure and Eroding Sexual Values
Best parenting book I've read this year!
If you only read one parenting book this year this is the one! It is filled with statistics that astonished me! There is practical advice that will help you make real decisions for your family. The chapter on Iniquity patterns was eye opening and life changing. In fact as I've just finished this book I plan on re-reading again to really make sure I've processed all there was. These are tough times for our kids. Media is everywhere. They can be on the internet in seconds from phones and ipods. Peers most likely don't have the same values that Christian kids do. They are being bombarded everyday with images and ideas and we need to give them the tools to navigate. Coming up with a real plan for dating and your family values is important. This is something my husband and I will be committing to paper soon so our boys know exactly what options are available. My goal is raising God-pleasing children now worldly-wise children.

She Walks the Talk
Julie Hiramine is an expert on training parents to train their children on the oft overlooked, but absolutely essential topic of "Purity". She's lectured and trained at events, campuses, and churches here and around the world. But that's not the reason to read this book. You should read this book because Julie, and her husband Kay, are parents to the most well-rounded, mature, intelligent, and "pure" bevy of beautiful daughters I've ever seen. After years of practicing the art of teaching, she's recently boiled her insight into a succinct, but comprehensive manual that equips a parent to define and develop a culture of purity in their homes and in their children's hearts. If you're blessed with kids, no matter how young, you need this book.

GET THIS BOOK AND GET READY TO BE EQUIPPED!
This book is a fantastic resource that was hard to put down! I gleaned so much wonderfully useful information that I was able to into action right away. This book is not only for parents but anyone who has children in their lives! Julie uses personal stories, scripture and her vast wealth of experience to equip you to be an advocate for your children where purity is concerned! This is one I will read again and again as my children grow so I can also train THEM to be Guardians of Purity for generations to come.

A Must Read for Parents and Grandparents
I am parent of teenagers and also a grandmother of 7. I feel this a MUST read for both parents and grandparents. From my personal experience, the technology section is so important. Julie is very encouraging that we can keep up with our kids in this area and help avoid tragic pitfalls. Guardians of Purity encourages you to pursue character building and really look at the heart of the issues. I really loved all the stories and examples, this book was very well written and very practical for putting the principles in practice. This book really challenges you to raise the standard for your family and equips you for doing so.
