Elsa’s teenage daughter picked up three books on sexual purity… and set all three of them down within the first two chapters. When asked why she didn’t read on, her daughter responded, “I know they mean well, but the stories seem unrealistic and because of that, it’s hard to follow the advice. I would love to read something that discusses real issues, uses my language and talks to me like I’m a maturing adult, not a little girl.” As a result, this book was born. [Pure] will prayerfully offer teens not only what they’re looking for, but what they need. It is the type of read where girls will see themselves (and their culture) in its pages. It is honest, raw, humorous and real. It talks about the true struggles, but also the deep adventure and joy that comes as a result of standing strong. Elsa defines what purity looks like, how teens can live it in a broken reality, and why they would want to put such effort into the fight. In addition to solid biblical counsel made relevant, girls will hear from other teenagers, read the stories of girls who have done it well, (or maybe not so well), and be inspired by quotes—one to another. Finally, this book will offer practical tools to help navigate the temptations and frustrations they face every day.
