I wish that all parents would know that this book exists and that they would read it and put it to practice. Both my husband and I have a whole new perspective on how to guide our children to the Lord. We should all long to let our Creator hold the pen to our life...especially our love life. Super easy to read and understand.
We're Youth Pastor's, and began reading this for our 'Relationship' series. As a parent of a teenager as well, this book is candid, and it gives us 'Christian Parents' the reality that we may not 'know the signs' of our own teen regarding relationships. I asked my Freshman some questions, and realized my own daughter is bombarded with sexual talk constantly. This book supplies us with a road map. I've read many books on Dating, but this gives a WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE! And our generation needs 'a new way of doing things'.
I found this book a shocking but amazing look at the world today that our kids are walking through. I am a Pastor's wife and deal with young people and wanted to be aware of what is REALLY going on in their world. And this book is IT. Anyone who counsels young people or works with 11 yrs old and up should READ THIS BOOK.
As a grandmother seeking info for grandchildren, the beginning of this book shocked me. If my grandchildren are having experiences similar to what was talked about I guess it could teach them a better way. If not it might teach them to be promiscuous.
I'm not an avid reader but I must say this book is AMAZING! My husband and I are youth pastors and this teen is a MUST READ! It is very practical and has great ways to teach your child the right way to view dating and marriage. It's a big scary to start as it gives us a glimpse of reality and what is going on but as you read you will get so encouraged and excited about the future God has for your child. If you have a child 10yrs of age or older you NEED to read this book! It's my absolute favorite!!
