I wish someone had handed me 21 Myths (Even Good) Girls Believe About Sex the day I turned fifteen. Jennifer Strickland candidly and authentically delivers a hard-hitting and refreshing message about the beauty and integrity of God’s design for sex, which every girl and young woman need to hear.
21 Myths is grace-filled, honest, and overflows with love. The insight and wisdom into the forbidden topic of sex opens the door for REAL conversation that renews, restores, and redeems hope, joy, beauty, and trust.
In a culture that seeks to convince us sexual purity is an antiquated philosophy, Jennifer Strickland proves the opposite. In 21 Myths (Even Good) Girls Believe about Sex, she uncovers the lies that would have us believe purity of mind and body stands in the way of our sexual freedoms. Through candid stories and personal transparency she reveals the truth about sex—that purity does not inhibit physical pleasure but liberates us to enjoy sex the way it was designed to be. . .pleasure without pain or remorse.
Boldly and compassionately, Jennifer engages the reader into thinking about God’s original intent for sex. Contrary to popular culture, sex isn’t about making women into objects, controlling others, or a way to cope with pain. Sex is a gift from God that joins a husband and wife together. Open your mind, heart, and be prepared to see the beauty of sex through God’s eyes. This book could change you, it may heal you, it might save your marriage, and it could prepare you before you get married. Make no mistake, this book is a game changer. I plan on recommending it to women and men alike.
One of the best testaments to what Jennifer is doing for the young girls and women of today is a comment from my eleven-year-old granddaughter: “Grammy, I want to read this book and hear her again. She’s good and I learned a lot.” This is exactly what I experienced from a grown-up perspective when I was introduced to Jennifer Strickland’s amazing story. Read it and see if you don’t get the real story from an icon model and a powerful speaker of truth.”
“The ‘P’ word [perfection] may be the heaviest burden women bear. All the misguided things we do to attain it can keep us away from what we need most – the unconditional love of God the Father. The Girl Perfect Study Guide gives you a map to the wholeness you were created for.”
