Abstinence isn't about not having sex—it's about waiting to have it right.
The pressure to conform to the sexual norms of our culture and to forgo God's plan for purity—His best for you—can be overwhelming. Whether you're committed to abstinence, just hanging in there, or you've already gone too far, you're not alone.

One of the biggest concerns our readers face is how to talk to their daughters about sex and sexuality. I send them to Dannah's book without hesitation. She's the wise big sister so many of these girls long to hear from. Her warmth, compassion, and vulnerability make her words matter for young women trying to live pure lives in an impure world.

Human sexuality is at the center of most of the bitter cultural struggles being waged in our day. Far too many young women don't know right from wrong when it comes to their bodies and their minds because they have bought into the low moral standards promoted on television and in contemporary movies and music. In a friendly, personal manner, Dannah Gresh helps her readers understand that sexuality is a beautiful gift from God and that He intends it to be reserved for marriage. I highly recommend And the Bride Wore White to any young woman who wants God's best for her life.

Dannah has a fresh way of sharing important truths we need to hear. In an age of moral decline even among our church youth, this message is needed now more than ever. Give Dannah your ear. You won't be disappointed.

As a mother of two teenage daughters, I cannot think of any book more beautifully inspiring than And the Bride Wore White. My daughters loved Dannah's insights, her humor, and her call for a life without regrets. I am deeply grateful for the realistic role model she is for my daughters...She has changed their lives, and in doing so she has changed mine.
