People also change as they grow up and mature. Author Joanna Chestnut tells her own story of how her views evolved in her intriguing book "True Love Waits: How a Hippie Peace Freak Became a Social Conservative". The wisdom gained by the author promotes saving sex for marriage, and after experiencing a courtship long enough to get to know your potential partner on all levels: intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. Her social conservatism is not based on religious teachings; rather, it is about achieving holistic intimacy before becoming physically intimate.
The book describes the author’s journey from the hippie days of free love to a conservative philosophy of waiting for marriage. Her transformation is a direct result of growing up in the 1950s and her teenage years in the late 1960s, as well as raising six children over the course of 40 years.
According to one Amazon reader: “Bravo to Joanna Chestnut for writing this thought-provoking, personal account of her experiences and conclusions! Once you read it, you’ll definitely be thinking about your own feelings on this provocative topic!” Another wrote: “It’s one woman’s journey to enlightenment that she lovingly passes on to her children and to us, with the hopes we can all understand and perhaps adopt her ideas while living in today’s world.”
