Roughly forty six percent of high school students will engage in sexual intercourse before they graduate.[i] There is almost no difference in the percentage of students inside the church and those outside the church. Shouldn’t there be? This risky behavior is compounded by the fact that starting to have sex early equals a lot of sexual partners. The average number of partners a sexually active college girl has is 7.1. [ii] This increases the number of people to whom she becomes physiologically and spiritually bonded to, and decreases her ability to bond well with her spouse in future years.
Do you want to lead teen girls through a bible study so they can land on the right side of these stats? Do you deeply desire that your own daughter walk in sexual purity? We have a brand new resource to help you and it’s FREE. Let me tell you about it:
In January And The Bride Wore White will be 15 years old! We figured what better way to celebrate than by releasing an all-new video curriculum and on-line leader’s guide? The series is available for FREE just like my Get Lost video series.
And the Bride Wore White provides practical “how-to” skills for aggressively pursuing purity in a world stained with sexual pain. Using the book in conjunction with the videos and leader’s guide (both available as free resources NOW) adds individual activities, compelling conversation, and fun object lessons to the mix. Every session carries a deep scriptural truth to your teen(s) on an intimate level because it is presented by you with me. It’ll be a team effort with your heart’s desires for those you guide through the curriculum supported by me. You drive. I’ll sit in the back seat and navigate! You’ll get the most out of these free videos if you invite your small group or daughter to read And the Bride Wore White and use our FREE Leader’s Guide to take them/her through our conversational style eight-week study or retreat.
And this month only, we’re offering 15% off our already low-priced bundles in honor of fifteen years of ministry. Just enter the coupon code “ANNIVERSARY” when you purchase one of these options. (Offer available January 1-31, 2015.)
When And the Bride Wore White: Seven Secrets to Sexual Purity first hit book stores, Publisher’s weekly exclaimed, “The evangelical chastity movement finds a champion in Dannah Gresh!” The book has since become a classic with the greatest proof of its success being the lives of hundreds of thousands who’ve embraced God’s plan for sexual purity. Here’s a sneak peak at lesson number one!
Our brand new 8-session video curriculum hosted by Chizzy Anderson features a talk-show format panel discussion followed by biblical teaching from Dannah Gresh. The students of Grace Prep, a new model in education founded by Bob and Dannah Gresh, participated in the conversation and created a live audience.
We are so blessed and excited to offer this curriculum to you for FREE, and it will be on-line for your use in January. Consider purchasing bundles of books now to be ready for winter Bible studies!
Below is a recap of the taping day:
We headed into the studio last week to film the series. Can I tell you? We had SO MUCH FUN! You won’t want to miss it. I was privileged to share my heart for teen girls through precious times of Bible teaching. Host Chizzy Anderson will make girls go “Awwweeee” as she explains how she knew her husband was “the one.” Panelist, Heather Bullock, will make you laugh as she shares an epic modesty lesson her mother taught her. Eight different girls from Grace Prep High School share their thoughts, opinions and experiences with boys, love, modesty and purity. We have no doubt teen girls will be able to laugh and relate as we wade through the topic of purity. Here’s a little peek into our day:
An extra-special blessing, my mom stopped by the studio to cover us in prayer. Isn’t she beautiful? I pray that moms and daughters who will use this curriculum will have a relationship like I do with my mother… one that grows sweeter and sweeter with time.
Precious Zariah, our student we recruited to Grace Prep from the Bronx, was one of our “guest panelists” today. I met her mom in New York when we did our first inner-city outreach for Secret Keeper Girl. Full of honesty and transparency, “Z” shares her journey to embracing modesty. (Let’s just say it wasn’t a warm, fuzzy embrace at first!)
The women of Grace Prep made such a beautiful studio audience, didn’t they?
