My husband and I both wish we had this opportunity long ago."
--Randy and Cathy, parents
of two teens
"I would benefit from hearing it again or having my children attend a seminar
of a teenage boy and pre-teen twins
"I only wish that someone had taught my husband and me these things. You
have given us the tools to educate our daughter. I thank God that he has brought
us this knowledge through you."
Marcia, parents of a teen daughter
"For many years I have lived with guilt and shame regarding my dating
and activities prior to marrying. I went into marriage with feelings of regret
that I had not 'saved myself' for the mate God had planned for me. .... I have
wished my parents would have explained to me clearly
standards were and what God's standards were.
I wish they
have helped me set my own boundaries.
I realized that one day I would eventually have
to talk to my children. How could I tell them of my past - my shortcomings -
know we all have some baggage, but I have never gotten past the guilt and been
able to even truly enjoy sex with my mate. However, God has been working on me
through this study on Created For Purity. Not only have I learned how to teach
my children about purity, but it has also brought healing and restoration to
my soul. I now have more confidence in who I am in Christ - even with my imperfect
past, and I now no longer have those same negative emotions associated with intimacy
with my spouse. I have finally accepted forgiveness for my sins and can truly
enjoy physical intimacy with my spouse without guilt, shame, or feeling 'dirty.'
Our God is awesome. I know His timing is perfect
in leading you to bring this study to our group. Thank you for being obedient
to what He has called you to do and to Josh Bullard for allowing
God to use him in preparing Created For Purity. As a result, I
to a place of cleansing and to a new beginning. May He richly bless
you both and your families."
