Recommended Resources

A list of edifying and encouraging books, websites, and DVD’s, to help you in your walk with the Lord. Of course, the Bible is the best Book for answers to any question, and the best resource for any of these  categories. Parents can help guide their daughters to appropriate reading material. Not every book about purity/relationships is suitable for a girl age 10-12. But there are plenty of resources here that can be helpful to a wide range of ages. Girls, remember to seek your parents guidance in your reading choices.

New Feature: Most resources now contain links to my personal review of the book, which you may wish to read prior to purchase of the book.

Note: Most of the books listed are used as reference material at Hearts for Purity conferences.
