What comes to mind when you think of the word "purity"? Abstinence from sex? A list of don'ts? Super-spiritual behavior? The DiMarcos say it goes much deeper! Showing that purity starts in the heart and involves every thought, action, and desire, they help teens make wise choices---and assure them that God's grace can redeem lost virtue. 192 pages, softcover from Revell.
Purity. What exactly is it? According to bestselling authors Hayley and Michael DiMarco, purity is far more than abstinence from sex or other sexual activities. It's not about rules. It's not a list of don'ts. It's not about scare tactics, teen pregnancy statistics, or warnings about STDs. And it's not ruined the moment we mess up. It goes way deeper than that.
In their honest, down-to-earth style that teens trust, Hayley and Michael explain that purity starts in the heart and involves every thought, desire, and action--not just sex. They show that purity isn't just for the superspiritual, but that it is a daily choice that every teen must make. And most importantly, they show teens that it's never too late to become pure and that lost purity can be redeemed through God's grace.
