In our postmodern world, we are so driven by our emotions that in "living for the moment" we've forgotten to guard our most precious treasure--our hearts. Young people may not realize it, but acts that appear innocent--such as email and instant messages--can entangle our emotions and lead the heart to places it should not go. Most people give their hearts away long before they give their bodies away, so it is imperative that young people learn the importance of emotional purity, how to avoid the steps that too often lead to a physical downfall, and how to live pure lives. Like talking to a big sister who's gone before them, reading Eyes Wide Open will give young people the necessary keys for making decisions about purity, love, and romance. She also shows them how to acquire a thirst for purity as they realize it is not just another rule, but a path that leads to a dimension of deep and fresh living where they can truly thrive.
