Equipping Parents to Instill Abstinence in Their Children Mar 15, 2009
Laura B. Gallier provides godly sexual instruction for instilling purity through her book "Choosing to Wait: A Guide to Inspiring Abstinence." This is a book for parents, teachers, and anyone who loves children and has an impact on their lives.
Gallier's emphasis is on training that will equip and empower parents with the tools to inspire abstinence while they cultivate and instill personal convictions in their children to maintain sexual purity. The study is composed of three parts which build on each other: Preparation, application, and motivation. These themes focus on a Biblical understanding of the purposes and sacredness of sex within marriage and the realities of sexual sin.
Each chapter contains practical, helpful "Questions for Thought" which are excellent for self reflection. In the application section of the book there are "Parent-Child Discussion Starter" and discussion road maps. These serve as spring boards for talking about sex and abstinence.
Shocking statistics about America's youth appear throughout the narrative. Gallier's writing demonstrates her understanding of the reality of the teen psyche, their natural desires, and the temptations that accompany them.
I appreciated the clarity of the chapter titles as they described the actual content of the chapter. This adds to maintaining the value of the book for later reference or review. O found the "Steps to Inspiring Convictions" helpful as they include principles for developing any of the spiritual disciplines.
Laura has written a companion book for teens "Why Wait? The Naked Truth About Sex and Abstinence." This approach allows parents and teens to benefit from having their own specific material to read, assimilate, and apply.
"Choosing to Wait: A Guide to Inspiring Abstinence" is Biblically sound, contemporarily relevant, with a proactive plan for the future. This is a book that is an investment in your child's future and your peace of mind. Once you read it, you will be recommending to your friends, even has I am recommending now. A full five stars!
Love verses lust Mar 14, 2009
As the morality within our country and in the church is continually "going down the drain" as is said by experts, here is loving teaching written for all parents and children,and grandparents. This sound and detailed practical biblical teaching provides the details for the reader to learn and to know and to recognize the grave need for pre-marital abstinence. It is a handbook to be used by children and youth leaders, but of importance for the young child, the teenager, and the young adult to learn as they read the truth of abstinence that is sometimes missing in today's teachings. Yes, even myths are discussed. This is a teaching that encourages abstinence through commitment. "Choose to wait."
