Have you ever given your heart to someone who didn't love you back?
Do you feel like you've experienced heartache over and over again?
If you are emotionally attached to someone, it's easy to cross the line and become emotionally intimate. Then if the relationship doesn't work out, you're left with scars on your heart.
The church teaches us the importance of physical purity; but it teaches little about emotional purity. Christian singles often wear their hearts on their sleeves, which can lead to intense, emotionally intimate, male-female "friendships" with no commitment to pursuing marriage. People may have had several of these "friendships" and still consider themselves pure, but in reality they have given away pieces of their hearts that should be reserved for their future spouses. Emotional Purity will show you how to define and set boundaries in your relationships to avoid making the same mistakes. Learn how to guard your heart and keep it emotionally pure.
Using fictional and real-life examples along with sound biblical advice, author Heather Arnel Paulsen outlines the pitfalls of undefined relationships and presents guidelines for living an emotionally pure life.
Heather Arnel Paulsen is committed to encouraging Christian singles to pursue emotional purity, and she enjoys mentoring and counseling young women. In 2003 she married her husband, John. The couple lives in Illinois with their two young children, whom Heather looks forward to homeschooling. Visit the authors web site at www.emotionalpurity.blogspot.com.

Anonymous2 Stars Out Of 5all submission, no compromise.May 10, 2012AnonymousQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1After reading this book in a mixed gender bible study group, we feel that the author is slightly off base in some of her teachings. She neglects to address compromise, she is very quick to generalize, and she is very contradictory. Our concern is that unsuspecting christians and non christians will be confused. There are good points, but they are hard to find amongst the rubbish. Read with caution!!
the mixed gender bible study that does not have sex.

This book made me step back and evaluate how much time I have been spending worrying about when I will be married. "Emotional Purity" really spoke to me and encouraged me to use all my single days for the Lord with a joyful heart :). Hope it encourages you too.
Heather D5 Stars Out Of 5This book targets purity in boy/girl friendships.January 10, 2011Heather DQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book, and several others like it, for my son who is 17. He loved it, and said it was his favorite book. He wants me to order more copies so he can hand them out to friends. It has really inspired (or convicted) him of how careful you need to be in friendships with the opposite sex. To seek God's will, and NOT lean to your own understanding and/or follow your emotions.
Byhisgracerincon, GaAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5good book!November 19, 2010Byhisgracerincon, GaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I really recommend this book! It is important to understand the importance of emotional purity...especially as women. It is something that we often do not take into account, but is so important. Emotional purity helps us to guard our heart, and this book definitely explains a lot of how to stay emotionally pure! Very good insight. I do wish she would go into more detail on some things, but other than that GREAT book!
