The Bare Naked Truth

The Truth About Sex and Waiting … Uncovered
Purity. Sex. Boys. Waiting. There’s something about those words that makes everything complex in a heartbeat, and raises more questions than answers. Is there something wrong with me if I don’t kiss a boy after a date? Or am I doomed if I DID? What if waiting is just a one-way trip to life as a crazy cat woman? And what if I tend to, um, think about a certain boy in a certain way? It seems that the lady at church and your friends have two very different opinions on the subject. And “Your Budding Womanhood: Staying a Beautiful Flower for Jesus” just isn’t cutting it.
Bekah Hamrick Martin knows the waiting game isn’t easy or straight-forward. In The Bare Naked Truth, she lays everything on the table—including some embarrassing moments—as she explores the honest, naked truth behind what God means by purity. With additional entries from popular authors, you’ll see the bare naked approach to waiting isn’t always easy, but it’s worth the risk.
WOW! What a book. Bare with me as I try to articulate my thoughts on this amazing and well presented book. Every teen girl should read this. It’s so honest and it doesn’t come across in a preachy way, but in a straight to the facts, raw kind of way. Bekah’s writing style is awesome and so personable you can’t help but continue reading. I had no issue with anything she said and I loved that she included personal stories from other women as well. And it doesn’t just throw biblical verse after biblical verse at you, it gives practical, current, relational material, so that it’s clear what she’s trying to say while being backed up by scripture. At the end of each chapter there is a multiple choice quiz and some thought provoking questions for you to journal your journey through this book. One of the good books for teens, especially girls, go buy it ($9.99) and read it with your daughter.
This book is available for purchase from most online and brick and mortar stores, and it’s available as an ebook and a paperback.
