Publisher's Description

Can purity survive real-world temptation?

"True love waits"--but what exactly are you waiting for? After all, we're constantly bombarded with Hollywood's idea of romance--that sex is no big deal, that everyone is doing it, that it's the only path to a happy ending. Maybe you've even begun to wonder, What am I missing? Is the wait really worth it?
Marian Jordan Ellis has been there. She knows the pitfalls of giving in to temptation--but also the blessings of God's best found in waiting after she committed herself to Christ and to sexual purity. Now, from one Christian woman to another, she hopes to spare you from the heartache of sexual sin and instead point you toward God's best. Marian offers lots of practical advice, backed by biblical truth, to equip you with the tools to overcome past mistakes and future temptations.

You are cherished. Whether you are happily single, casually dating, or have found "the one," your purity is worth fighting for.

    Marian Jordan Ellis's newest book, Sex and the Single Christian Girl is truly inspirational. From the beginning, Marian Jordan Ellis writes with such honesty and truth. I felt that every word written came from the author was written in sincerity and were written to impart the wisdom she gained from her own experiences and wanted to speak truth to every single woman's heart. One of the points that can be taken away from this book is that purity is not only about the body but it is also about the soul. Marian Jordan Ellis also points out that every woman should be cherished the way God cherishes her which I felt was one message that was very poignant and relevant for every woman to hear. There are so many messages in this book that will change a single Christian woman's life. Also included, is a small group discussion guide that I find would be helpful in getting single Christian women to reflect more deeply on each chapter.

    Note: I have received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    Marian offers lots of practical advise, backed by biblical truth, to equip you with the tools to overcome past mistakes and future temptations.

    Marian Jordan Ellis' new book, Sex and the Single Christian girl, is an inspiring book that every single Christian girl should read!

    Marian's writing is captivating, easy to follow, and very relatable, weather your a 13 year old girl or a 30 year old women. She discusses how purity is not about following a rule - it is about something bigger than us.

    What most impressed me about this book was that it wasn't the typical book that talked about dating or courtship and all the things you should and shouldn't do. It is a book that focuses on finding the truth in the only firm foundation of Jesus Christ, and avoiding the pitfalls that detour us especially in today's culture.

    I liked how Marian started out the book, it cought my attention right away and kept it for most of the book. Another thing that stuck out to me was the quotes Marian refered to throughout the book.

    I was impressed with this book, and would happily recommend to other single young women.

    Purity of the Person, Not Just the Body

    *I received this complimentary copy from Bethany House in exchange for this honest review. I was not influenced to write a positive or negative review.*

    The first thing that really stuck with me about this book was the honesty. There were no punches pulled, no sugar coating, no trying to sound like a I've-got-it-together. It was a woman reaching out to many girls about what God wants from our sexuality versus what the worlds says it should be.

    Mrs. Jordan Ellis was 38 years old when she married. I mention this because some books on purity are written by those who remained chaste before marriage but married by their middle to late twenties. They then write about it from a life point of being married 20 years or more. While these books are greatly beneficial and should be used as resources, having someone like Mrs. Jordan Ellis who is not so far removed from waiting-till-marriage scene adds a level of relevancy that some lack.

    What is also an encouragement is that Jordan Ellis was not a virgin on her wedding night. She came to Christ after having bought the lie about sex and free love and the book gives insight into her struggles to maintain purity after her salvation. I really appreciated this as many have become beaten by believing that once virginity is lost, purity no longer matters. Thus they yield believing that nothing is sacred once the sacred has been given. Jordan Ellis gives strong edification to not give into that falsehood but to fight for purity of mind, body, and spirit as a way of life; not a one time event.

    As a youth pastor I highly recommend this book for those who disciple young ladies. This book is about purity of body but it is also a book about acceptance by Jesus and to find your longing in him; not a man.

    I wish books like this were available when I was a young woman, but I am so glad they are now.

    What makes "Sex and the Single Christian Girl" by Marian Jordan Ellis different from the other books like this that I have read are:

    1. Mrs. Ellis regularly affirms the reader with terms of endearment. While reading the book I felt special. She reminds us that we are cherished daughters of the King, a priceless treasure, and that we are worth waiting for.

    2. She gives you a game plan. Most books don't really discuss a way to remain pure until marriage other than to "hang tough". I think her perspective is unique because she was in her 30's when she met and married her husband. She gives practical suggestions, like"laying ground rules" at the beginning of the relationship. During a make-out session is not the time to do that.

    3. She puts it into perspective. If he isn't willing to wait and ends up leaving, thank the good Lord that he protected you from such a creep!

    4. She puts blame where it belongs. No temptation becomes sin without permission. Don't allow yourself to be in situations where those temptations can lead to what you wish to wait for.

    I am definitely adding this book to the list that I will encourage my daughter to read.

    Marian Jordan Ellis' new book, Sex and the Single Christian Girl, is an incredible tool that EVERY single Christian girl needs to read! Marian's writing is captivating, easy to follow, and very relatable, whether you're a 14 year old girl or a 60 year old woman. She discusses how purity is not about following a rule - it is about something bigger than us! Purity is about a deeper desire we must have to honor the Lord and devote our lives to Christ and His glory. Marian states that the two essentials for victory in this area are know that (1) purity is birthed out of a passionate love for Jesus and (2) purity is rooted in knowing and believing our identity in Christ. Sex and the Single Christian Girl provides tools for the reader to better understand their own desires, shares the knowledge that we are all cherished by God and that sexual purity is a choice, and also discusses the lies many of us believe about ourselves that the enemy uses for destruction. Marian empowers us to choose Jesus because He is better and gives us practical ways to do just that! As a former-party-girl-turned-redeemed-girl now in my mid-20s, this book has been such a blessing to me and has empowered me to stay on this path of purity that I have chosen since giving my life to Jesus. Sex and the Single Christian Girl has impacted me in a much deeper way than I ever expected it to or imagined it would_ it is truly a life changing book! I have already ordered additional copies to be shared with women of all different ages in my life -- from the high school freshman girls at church that I lead in a small group, to my friends who are just starting college, to my single friends in their 30s still waiting for God's best - this book really is written for every Single Christian Girl. I am so thankful for another incredible resource from Marian Jordan Ellis and am excited to see how God uses it to truly change peoples' lives!
