Litfuse Review:The Bare Naked Truth by:Bekah Hamrick Martin

The Bare Naked Truth: Dating, Waiting, and God's Purity Plan
About the Book:
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.

About the Author:
 Bekah Hamrick Martin was born in Savannah, Georgia, in an event which her brother keeps reminding her was completely unnecessary. She spent the better part of her high school years vacationing on the north end of her mattress due to an illness, where she developed a deep taste for chocolate and sarcasm. Today Bekah shares with teens about tough times, healing, and surviving their high school years---no matter where they spend them.

My Review:
 This book is a must read for every teenage girl out there that is, has, or will ever contemplate having an intimate relationship before marriage. I love the author's insightful advice as well as her humorous side. Teenage girls will really enjoy her down to earth tone and general sarcasm and wit. I had never heard of this author before today but I really enjoyed her writings on this subject and I'm sure I will read anything else she does. I have already passed the book on to my almost 16 year old daughter and she enjoyed it as well.

 Bekah Hamrick Martin has written a book to guide our girls toward the purity plan that God has outlined for their lives. She offers insight into her own life as well as the lives of others. Offering funny happenings and sometimes not so funny happenings to connect with our children on a level that they feel comfortable. The author drops a small little bombshell towards the end of the book that knocked me for a loop. But needless to say that didn't slow her down one bit.
