Sex and the Single Girl
Smart Ways to Care for Your Heart
Our world has a lot to say about sex and about singleness, but it all comes down to this: you can do whatever you want. But is that the smart way to care for your heart? Perhaps you have already experienced the emotional and spiritual fallout that comes with sexual “freedom.” How many times has your heart been broken? Through her own experience, Ellen Dykas offers the way to protect your heart by following God’s plan for your sexuality and pursuing healthy relationships and sexual wholeness through the grace and strength Christ provides. Because the smartest way to care for your heart is to give it to the One who knows you and loves you best.
