    I love The Bare Naked Truth! I love the honesty that Bekah bring

    I love The Bare Naked Truth! I love the honesty that Bekah brings with her awesome sense of humor and wish I could have read this book before/was dating because it would have changed my ideas/thoughts so much! I realized that many of the lies she mentioned I believed. I thought I was good to go if I had the boundaries in my head and knew the truth, but I realized after reading that it takes a lot more then knowing, especially in that heated moment.

    Since I could relate so much to the novel I loved how she not only stated the lie, but also how we can change our thinking concerning it. She doesn't just leave us hanging where we know we need to change, but don't know how to go about it! She gives such awesome advice that is godly and encouraging, but also the "bare naked truth."

    Also, I really liked how she always included a funny story to help bring about the point she was going to talk about because it was so much easier to read the novel. The chapters were not to short or to long which I think is vital when reading a novel like this because its easy for the info to go in one ear and out the other. Plus, not only did she get right to the point, but she also spoke with such a love where I could really feel her heart for these girls in her words. She definitely wants to see every girl know the Lord and truly make a vow of purity.

    Something I was really surprised about was that she included a whole chapter on masturbation. Out of the few date books I have read not one book has included this topic. I didn't realize how truly important this is to talk about because like she mentioned the Bible doesn't mention anything about it, so it must be okay! Wrong. And Bekah uses a powerful testimony of a counselor to say why! So I am glad she included it because it is definitely a silent subject that is not usually mentioned in the "sex talk."

    Overall, this is a great novel about dating and purity. Despite that I am married I learned so much and was blessed by a novel that not only encourages young women to save themselves for marriage, but also gives them hope that they are not alone in this journey! Not once did Bekah ever berate any kind of girl, but gave us a good laugh and reminded us that we are worth waiting for!

    Thank you so much Litfuse Publicity for giving me a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review!

    Sex is something that teenagers (and others) face on a regular b

    Sex is something that teenagers (and others) face on a regular basis in this society. Everywhere we turn, we are inundated with messages that tell us that sex before and/or outside of marriage is perfectly acceptable and even healthy. It's hard for young people especially to remain pure before marriage, and they may have even bought into the idea that everyone's doing it, so why shouldn't they? 

    In this well-written, honest, and sometimes humorous book, Bekah Martin has provided young people with a reason to remain pure before marriage. She does not mince words nor dance around the issue--which is very refreshing in a Christian book. She uses the Bible as well as statistics and real stories to illustrate her various points. 

    I have no qualms concerning this book. I would love for my daughter to read it in a few years. I can easily recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone with teens, young people, or just a single (like me) trying to remain pure. I wish I had known some of these things a few years ago. It could have kept me out of trouble in some areas.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was no financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
