Real Sex...the naked truth about Chastity

A week or so ago I wrote about Lauren Winner.  I finished the book Realsex-the naked truth about chastity while on our family fishing trip.

I feel like this is a book that I will read at least once per year: and that is saying something.  I tend to read a book and then put it on the shelf- an accomplishment per say, "I have read this and this and this...."  Lauren Winner writes well and the book is an enjoyable read.  She has given me a deeper understanding of why I choose to live my life the way I do and not just as a list of do's and don'ts. 

It may be thought that this book is intended for singles (male and female) who are wanting to live chastity before marriage. And I feel that every mother, father, and community should read this book and educate our youth, singles, and couples.  But, I will tell you from personal experience as a wife of 7 years that this book re-affirms and educated me on Realsex! This book discusses the lies that our society tells us, along with lies the church tells, and digs into what pornography, the "M" word, and premarital sex.  L. Winner is honest, encouraging, and loving as she writes to the community that will read this book.  

Thank you Lauren Winner for using your gifts.
