Show And Tell Saturdays


Good Saturday Morning Friends. I thought I would try again to participate in Show and Tell Saturday over at our blog friend, Homesteaders Heart. (Just click on her link, and see what it is all about, and get some good book ideas). The theme this week is, books that have inspired you to be a better "you".

The first book that came to mind was this one, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, by Joshua Harris. This is a book I read when 23 year old was a teenager. It really helped me put into words what I felt The Bible was saying to me as a mom about dating, courting, and all that. I have since, made it a must read for the other 3, and am getting a new copy for 13 year old and her friends. If you have teenagers, get a copy and read it.

Enjoy your Saturday. Blue Eyed Husband is painting the bedroom today!!!

My daughter is 15 and such a sweetheart. I have heard of this book but just haven't purchased it yet. I guess now would be a good time. We don't believe in dating either and she is wholeheartedly in agreement with us, which is great.
Thanks for sharing about this book.
Blessings to you!!!

I have not read this myself but a friend did and it did change her whole way of thinking. I have 3 young daughters who will need this in their teens. Thank you for the reminder :)

You might enjoy reading my blog where I critique Harris's book.

"I Kissed Dating Goodbye: Wisdom or Foolishness?"

Unfortunately Harris doesn't share the defects of the approach he champions but is quick to point out the defects he sees with dating.

Hope this helps.
