Editorial Reviews

Michelle Graham
"This book is a must-read for today's singles, no matter their spiritual background. Growing up in a culture of sexual confusion and experimentation, this generation is looking for straightforward answers to tough questions. Mindy is like a big sister who tells it like it is while maintaining an understanding attitude. I found Sex and Dating to be refreshingly honest, disarmingly witty, currently practical and biblically sound. She offers hope and grace in the midst of our brokenness without resorting to the latest radical solution in dating theories. With a foundation of Scripture and experience, this book sets us on the right course toward experiencing what God intended for relationships."
Timothy Smith
"Shaped by real-life interactions with teens and college students, Sex and Dating: Questions You Wish You Had Answers To does more than simply answer tough questions. It provides satellite navigation away from dating disasters and guides toward healthy relationships."
