I'm 33, and I really wish someone had given this to me when I was Would have saved me a lot of heartache!
The author is very good at showing you what sex is about and why it's best shared in the context of marriage. He opens this Scriptures to you, but also shows you the advantages from a realistic vantage point as well. I recommend this book to everyone who are single. Wisdom and knowledge are powerful. One person found this helpful. The selection of Christian books is truly wonderful. The pricing is very affordable. My library has grown a lot since I've been an amazon.
If you want to see a football game, you go to the football stadium. If you want to find a godly girl, go to a church. A godly woman wants a vision that is bigger than her. She wants to join a man on mission that is doing something with his life. She wants to be a part of something special.

It is your job to figure out what this is. What are you to do with your life? Where are you to go? How are you going to invest in building the kingdom of God? A godly woman does not want to marry a lazy man. She wants to marry a hard worker whom she can respect.
He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men. Take ownership and pride in your work and work hard. Strive to become the best at what you do. Instead, develop appropriate friendships with Christian women in the context of service in the church. A godly woman wants to first see your godly character on display before she wants to trust you emotionally and romantically in a serious relationship.
Young men will often meet a pretty girl and immediately begin to think about asking her out—without first knowing anything about her character or whether or not she is a follower of Christ.
Before you ask a girl out you should know something of her character and her godliness. You will most likely meet a godly girl at church or serving at another Christian organization or institution. Most marriages in the bible did not court. Now having sex with any random people can be dangerous you need to know if this will be your life long spouse.
So I do disagree with some things. I am celibate by choice,because I know when I have sex it will be considered a marriage,however when my spouse come and I know it is.

Next thing he came back at the end of May to get his things. We rekindled our friendship over the summer. He came to see me after his nieces graduation. I have not spoken to him since thanksgiving weekend. They are best friends and all each other needs. Told me that the things I sent him messed with his mind.
So much religious condescension and lack of humility in some of these responses. Great article Stephen and I understood exactly what you meant. Some of us really need to reach spiritual maturity. Definitely something to consider! This is absolutely true! Last year I met someone who happened to ask my hand in marriage. Because I prayed about it and sought counsel, and he was a born again and my friend for two years I left my job and PHD admission to my country for the marriage in July. But we should still be friends. I am still trying to heal from that. It hurts so much that the man wanted to marry you would tel u in the end he is not ready for that.
Normally, I tend to get my hackles up at such articles but this one really is right on the money! I had an experience recently with an infatuation with a fellow. Trust me, I know from recent experience. Oh, well…live and learn, right? Interesting article and enjoyed reading it.
Unfortunately, it will fall on deaf ears by most women because a lot of them feel it is the mans fault and their is nothing wrong with them which is ridiculous. At the end of the day, this article is about a true christian and not the many fake christian women out here. Being a God fearing woman is more than words but a lifestyle that is lived everyday according to the bible and not the adjustments that women will make to the bible..
What a bunch of B. Take all the descriptions off for a sec and see what you really are.
