Overview

Women who have maintained their sexual purity often ask, “Is it really that important for me to wait until I get married?” Meanwhile, single women who have been sexually active mourn the loss of their innocence, wishing they could somehow start again.

Women want to protect the purity that is God's gift to them, and they also long to be loved. This volatile combination makes them vulnerable to temptation. That is why it is vital that women know not only that God wants them to wait, but why God wants them to do so. They need solid reasons, conviction, and a strategy that will prepare them to live out their sexual purity as God intends.

Filled with powerful true stories of hope and healing, Gift-Wrapped by God provides compelling emotional and spiritual reasons for choosing God's path of sexual purity, as well as practical help for following it. Whether women have held onto their sexual innocence, have become prematurely sexually active, or have had their purity taken by force, they can express and fulfill their desire to come to their wedding day--and live out every day–-sexually pure and whole.

    Very Helpful

    This book was very helpful to me, and I think would be to every woman. It is also appropriate for teenage girls. We all know that sex is not portrayed in a good way on TV, Magazines, etc. nowadays and this book addresses those issues and gives you the confidence and the tools you need to face them. It truely takes you on a spiritual journey.

    All Teens Need to Realize This!!!

    In simple language, the authors reveal the importance of God's plan and purpose to remain pure for marriage. In a society that bestows the joy of sex outside of marriage and the almost 'normalness' of it, this book shows teens how God intended it to be so they can see the difference between God-wrapped and media-wrapped. Another book that explores this issue, though in a fictional format is If I'd Only Known... by Edee Wilcox. Though fictional, it gives teens a realistic view of how life can change after making the decision to have sex. It also show God's grace and forgiveness without being preachy or overbearing. Both books are a must for teens and parents!
