Today I want to tell you about some GREAT resources to not only teach your children the birds and the bees, but to teach them about purity from God’s eyes and to WAIT until marriage!
Don't let the world squeeze its views about your child's body and future love life into them. Be a 1 in a million parent and take them with you on a overnight getaway to share God's heart toward sex with your preteen! But first, for some of the young people reading who are older:
I adore Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot. It is great for young men or young women. She tells her love story with Jim Elliot. It is beautiful. She waited 5 years for God to give her the green light, and she says, it was worth the wait! The subtitle reads: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ’s Control.
I also love the stories of hope given in Joshua Harris’ I Kissed Dating Goodbye.
For young children, I highly recommend moms take your girls, and dads take your boys on a weekend getaway with Passport2Purity by Dennis & Barbara Rainey.
I L-O-V-E Passport2Purity by Family Life Today for preteens which is designed to be used for an overnight getaway with your child. I took my youngest, Mary, on a beautiful fall weekend a couple years ago. I’m closing today with my reflections of my weekend alone with my youngest, Mary (blind) to share God’s heart with her about purity, her body, and waiting for marriage. I treasure the memories we have of our special weekend together. You can read about that here.
