Enjoy these SAMPLE pages from And the Bride Wore White-

Reviewers continue to rave about And the Bride Wore White: Seven Secrets To Purity.
But the greatest proof of it's effect is in the lives of tens of thousands of young women who've embraced the book's proven "How-to-wait" skills. Each chapter of And the Bride Wore White begins with a narrative of Dannah Gresh's young love life,
taken from her own teenage journals. She transparently shares her struggles and successes, her moments of pain followed by healing and the moments of triumph. This story-line grips the young reader while they learn statistically proven risk-reduction factors. The end result is usable "how-to-say-no" skills that can reduce the risk of a young woman's heart being broken by sexual sin. In this update, Dannah and her friends share open letters of encouragement to young women, one for those who chose life and another to those who chose abortion, a letter to teen girls addicted to pornography and another to girls who have experienced sexual abuse, and many more specific to a young woman's unique circumstances. Over 250,000 copies sold!

    And The Bride Wore White.

    This is a great book for all women young or old. I'm almost fifteen years old and I found this book very motivating, helpful, and inspiring. Dannah Gresh is one of those writers that just gets it. She knows how to put it down on paper and make it come across just right. It had a lot of scripture which is so helpful to turn to when you finish the book. I loved how Dannah put her own personal story in the book. Laid it all out so we could learn from some mistakes she made in her life. I hope and pray to stay pure until marriage, and Dannah's book is next to the best for reading on purity. I loved it and I hope you do too.

    Wonderful

    Absolutely amazing! I am14 years old and this book really sealed the deal as to why we shoud wait until we are married to have sex. And it really encourged me that i dont have to give my first kiss to some guy i will never see agin, but to save it for my wedding day. Absolutely inspiring. Two thumbs up!!!

    This book provides young girls with not only the reasons for striving toward purity, but also tools to help them achieve it. It's easy to say, wait for marriage, but not so easy for girls to understand the why and how behind it why it matters in the first place. This book provides alternatives for them to strive for, steps to help them on their journey, and simple techniques to extricate them from sinful relationships.

    I thought this was an excellent book for girls and their mothers. I love the simplicity of breaking off sinful relationships: Tell God, Tell a Friend, Make a Fast Strategic Exit. I think the writing exercises would be very helpful, especially compiling a list of qualities your future husband should have. A lot of women come up with these qualities by trial and error; how much better is it, to have it thought out and in black and white before dating at all?

    I think the theme throughout the book of each girl having value is another excellent message. Not only are girls given tools to strive for purity, but they are also given tools to accept the value they have in the eyes of God. I keep thinking about the phrase I read in the book - everything has a cost and some things cost everything - I could chew over that for days!

    It is not inevitable that girls fall for Satan's lies and enter into damaging relationships prior to marriage. This is an excellent book to use in starting a dialogue with your girls, especially if you have a difficult time broaching the subject. Now we just need some books on this topic geared for the boys!

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

    I only read the sampler, but I really wish I could buy the book. Every church needs to do the retreats she describes, not just for the women but for the younger girls. I love the writing style, and hopeto be able to read it al soon.
