The Bare Naked Truth: A Blog Tour and Book Review

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:

Being a teenager means you are going to be faced with many types of peer pressure - drinking, drugs, stealing, lying, sex and more. All teens will face these issues, whether Christian or not, but Christian teens, at times, seem to be under more pressure to be "perfect" and not give in. Where do Christian teens go for encouragement and courage to face peers and peer pressure. The number one place should be their Bibles of course, but in today's book market there are a number of great resources for teens to use. One of these is The Bare Naked Truth.

The Bare Naked Truth is a fantastic resources for teen girls that combines fact with humor to encourage girls to maintain purity until marriage. The author does not hold back with her experiences, making her completely relateable. She is not crass, but honest that it is not always easy to live purely but that it is necessary. She uses her own experiences and those of others to offer encouragement and challenges young girls to purity. It also, most importantly, reminds girls that God has to be at the center of their lives. He is the only thing that can fill them up, not a relationship and certainly not sex. I love the way the book is interactive and helps the reader to really analyze their live and apply the points the author makes. The book is very easy to read and is also a quick read. This is a book that all Christian teen girls should read! 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
