In a world where sexuality is highly exposed, Christian teens are faced with the question of using their own in a pure manner. Authors Ryan and Hope East, in A True Fairy Tale: An In-Depth Bible Study with Real Answers to Lifestyle Purity (published by AuthorHouse), have laid bare their love story of saving their first kiss for their wedding day.

“Once married, we were astounded by how worthwhile our purity promise had become,” the Easts say. “The effect on our marriage made us stronger and more in love. Thankful to God for keeping us strong and pure, we wanted to share our story in hopes that others might allow Him to write their own love stories.”

A True Fairy Tale digs deep in the Bible to find out what it means to be sexually pure. The authors offer practical advice from their life experience for staying pure in a dating relationship. Their authenticity challenges the age-old question of “how far is too far?” and their transparency allows the reader to see how God’s holiness can become relevant. This book not only explains why sex should be reserved for marriage but also provides teens with practices for real-life application.

“If we could help just one person see that waiting to have sex is worthwhile, then our mission would be complete,” the authors say. “Our main point is that being in love does not require sex. We were madly in love without it and are thankful for our time of abstinence. Our hearts long for teens to step out of the sexually-charged worldview around them to let God shape their ideas about sex and dating.”
