March Madness Media Sale For Non-Monks

“This book is not for spiritual monks.”

I guess it’s not for radio talk show hosts either. And that’s a bit of a problem for me. You see, when it comes to the pond of Christian writers and speakers, I’m no big fish. No daily radio show. No mega-church platform. I completely rely on my very faithful friends in the Christian media to help me get my message out when I release a new title. And usually they do. (And for that I’m grateful to them and owe them a debt for a few best-sellers, so I won’t call anyone out!) But not this time. Today, I played another exhausting round of “we absolutely love that book, but it’s just not family friendly enough for our audience!” In the very kindest of ways, I’m being banned by both Christian and secular media who don’t want me to say “the words” on their airwaves, or print them on their pages. Frankly, it’s a little easier to swallow coming from the Christian media, but have you checked out prime time mainstream programming? We can “do” the words, but not provide any moral framework for them on TV! But then…oh, this is a flow of consciousness…shouldn’t the Church be the first to provide moral framework. And oh, how we need some!

I do admit that the book is very up front and that I address all the toughest topics. (Maybe that’s why students at Cedarville University stood in line to get a copy last Tuesday. Those college girls…well, not a one of them was a monk.) If you —like me and those girls at Cedarville—are  not a spiritual monk, I have a great March Madness deal for you that has nothing to do with basketball and everything to do with the lowest priced book you’ll buy other than the out-of-print stacks in your local Ollies. (Don’t have an Ollies? Visit this link. It’s worth it just to hear “good stuff cheap.” And that’s what I’ve got for you!)

Spiritual monks spend more time in church getting to know God’s word than out in the world living it. I’ve spent a lot of time in God’s Word, but I’ve also spent the last twelve years of my life out living it. Specifically, I pick up the very broken pieces of marriages marred by sexual pain that was imprinted on women when they were teenagers—years before they met their husbands. Since roughly half of Christian girls go to their marriage beds non-virgins, it’s safe to say that not talking about the real, tough issues hasn’t helped. What we get out of it is an inability to have an intimate emotional and physical relationship, body image issues, depression, anxiety, bodies that don’t function in bed the way God designed them to, and isolating loneliness because we can’t talk about all that aftermath…because then we’d have to talk about what got us into it in the first place. Yep, I’ll say it again: I believe helping today’s college aged girls walk in purity is very family friendly!

I’m going to ask you—if you’re not a spiritual monk and you want to see the Church start to reclaim the moral value of sexual behaviors—to be my platform.  Keep an eye on my personal facebook page because very soon, I’m going to be marking the cost of What Are You Waiting For: The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex down to $5. Yep, that’s pretty much my cost plus shipping and handling. And I’m hoping you’ll want to take advantage of it and buy more than one. In fact, buy five for $25. That way you can pass this message of real world language and relevant purity truth on to a college woman or two or three or four that you know need it. The price is only going to be available for five days, and I’m only going to notify people about it through my facebook pages. (Do me a favor and honor those five days. We don’t have deep pockets, and can’t honor this special price before or after the five days.) What are you waiting for you non-monk, you! “Friend” me, and let’s start a non-monk revolution to reclaim the language of sexuality.

  • Dannah-

    I am so sorry you are facing opposition in getting your book “out there” in the Christian realm. Please know I have already recommended your book to three people and won’t stop because it was eye-opening and faith-encouraging.

    I am so grateful for your honesty about the issues we face today and using God’s Word as the standard of truth in addressing them.

    Be encouraged! Your “labor of love” strengthened this sister in her walk with the Lord.

  • Dannah, just want you to know that my copy of your book is getting around. I gave it to a friend after I finished reading it and haven’t seen it since. Everyone who has read it has loved it and has been deeply touched by it. And they all ask me if they can pass it on to another friend to read.

  • Have seen a couple of your interviews, and was so impressed. Another mom & I have been doing a purity Bible study with our girls for several months, and we have incorporated your research. Thank you! Question: Is there any way to share your blog post on FB? Would love to share your insights with others in that way! Keep up the good fight! We’re right there with you!

  • I want you to know how thankful I am for you and your ministry. God has started a mighty work in you. I will be praying for doors to be opened up to you and this new book. Also I will be purchasing it now so that I can share it later with my two daughters. I am proud to say they are die hard SKG’s. God Bless you and your ministry.

  • Oh Dannah. I support you. God is the Creator of sex and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it! I speak to married women and that is hard enough to “use the words”, but the women respond so powerfully. Praying with and for you and will order. <3

  • Just wanted to tell you that the word is definitely getting out there. Your site alone has got more calls for tickets to the Pure Freedom Rally than our snail mail promo packs and our FaceBook event page. You keep up writing and we’ll keep on talking so then you can also do more talking! We are so excited to have you at our church. We are expecting a sell out crowd! You are know and so is your material! Keep it up – we want all God has for us and our girls!

  • Hi Dannah! I am a college-aged young woman blogging from Kenya,East Africa. I must say your books (LYWB and And the bride wore white) have been a blessing in my life and that of my friends seeing as I am from a conservative culture where such matters aren’t discussed as openly and few books covering such topics are in circulation.I can’t wait to get my hands on WAYWF. I think its just a shame that people would label it as being too forward, I mean if the media gets to spread so much lies about subjects such as pornography, masturbation and sex in general, why shouldn’t the church speak about it as well? Where else are we supposed to turn to for truth in the face of a hedonistic culture, if not to God’s Word? Aren’t we then as members of the church, custodians of the truth? Modesty is the appropriate virtue not prudery and the church has sorta been guilty of turning their faces from all the ugliness under the guise of modesty. You fight fire with fire, so preach on Sista, u’ve got support from someone this side of the world! All that ” ni kelele tupu” (means ‘ is just empty noise’ in Swahili). Let’s stand boldly and be truth-speakers for this generation.
