The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

The Bare Naked Truth Book Review

Dating, Waiting, and God's Purity Plan

 SUMMARY:  The truth about sex and waiting .... uncovered and revealed
     Purity. Sex. Boys. Waiting. Something about those words makes everything complex in a heartbeat. Is there something wrong with me if I don't kiss a boy after a date? Or am I doomed if I did?  Is waiting a one-way trip to life as a crazy cat woman? And what if I, um, think about a certain boy a certain way?  It seems the lady at church and your friends have two very different opinions on the subject.  And the purity talks aren't always cutting it.
     Bekah Hamrick Martin knows the waiting game isn't easy or straight-forward.  In The Bare Naked Truth, she lays everything on the table - including some embarrassing moments - as she explores the honest, naked truth behind what God means by purity.  With additional entries from popular authors, you'll see the bare naked approach to waiting isn't always easy, but it's worth the risk.

REVIEW:  This book is not for young girls but perfect for teens, and even pre-teens, if their moms read it first.  Singles of all ages, and even married people, would also benefit from reading this book.  The author holds NOTHING back which helps answer those embarrassing questions every girl has and is afraid to ask.  Moms can use it to help answer those embarrassing their daughters ask.  Bekah draws from her own experience and friends who have gone through the gambit of mistake-making and doing the right thing to help her readers make the right decisions.  The advice she gives is biblical based and full of common sense. She even includes quizzes at the end of each chapter and a few places to journal.  I loved this book and want my daughter to read it!

Bekah Hamrick Martin was born in Savannah, Georgia, in an event which her brother keeps reminding her was completely unnecessary.  She spent the better part of her high school years vacationing on the north end of her mattress due to an illness, where she developed a deep taste for chocolate and sarcasm. Today Bekah shares with teens about tough times, healing, and surviving their high school years - no matter where they spend them.
