|New book outlines everything a young woman needs to know in staying sexually pure for God and herself
In a time where women are assaulted visually and physically with sexual
innuendo and images and are pressured to “put out,” what kind of role
could remaining sexually pure possibly have?
A major one, it turns out.
In their book, Sexual Purity and the Young Woman, mother & daughter
Grace LaJoy Henderson and Arica Henderson give hope to young women
everywhere, encouraging them to offer their body and everything about
their sexuality to God so they do not have to hurt as a result of common
sexual mistakes that young women make.
Citing verse from the Scriptures, the Hendersons use parable to make
their point, drawing on their own experiences as young women
navigating the slippery slope of young adult sexuality.
Each chapter explores a different aspect of remaining sexually pure and
includes questions for discussion about each topic.

The bible based discussion questions promote personal reflection
as well as small group interaction for home, school, churches,
and camps. This book provides wisdom and guidance for young
ladies passionate about purity.”--LeAndra “Mrs. Angie” Daniels, sexual
