What Are You Waiting For? – An Interview with Author Dannah Gresh & GIVEAWAY!

The winner of the giveaway has been selected and notified. Please feel free to comment still and join the discussion! 🙂 

I have had the privilege of interviewing Dannah Gresh, best-selling author of And the Bride Wore White, 5 Little Questions That Reveal the Life that God Designed For You, The Secret of the Lord, and multiple others including What Are You Waiting For?: The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex which we are talking about today. She is the co-founder of the ministry Pure Freedom. Dannah is a wonderful woman with a great message which she shares unashamedly and in the direct way that today’s young women need to hear.

Brittany: If you could sum up your goal in writing What Are You Waiting For? in one sentence, what would it be?

Dannah: I want today’s young women to have a sexual judge on which to base their sexuality.

We can’t just make decisions, we need to know what God’s intentions are for us.

Brittany: In What Are You Waiting For? you mention “a greater revelation of a much deeper love.” How would you describe this greater love?

Dannah: It’s the all-consuming everything-we-hope-for dream-of-love. This love between God and us is the most beautiful banquet table, and we get it so mixed up with mud pies.

Brittany: So many girls are acting out on their want and desire for attention and “love” and the results of pursuing that can be devastating. What is the greatest factor that they are missing?

Dannah: Probably at the core of it they don’t know who they are in Christ. They reach out for the mud pie because they don’t know they are a princess who has been invited to a love feast with the king.

Brittany: What is the biggest misconception that young women have that is addressed in your book?

Dannah: They don’t think sex is going to hurt them. Because it is so common and casually treated that they don’t understand it hurts when it is misused. We are designed to be monogamous and when we are not in a monogamous relationship we need to heal.

Brittany: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Dannah: I am burdened for the 20-something culture to muscle up on the theology of sexuality. We gotta muscle up!

Thank you, Dannah for being with us and sharing more on a biblical view of sex and sexuality.

The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex comment on this post leaving your name, age, and a comment about how having a healthy and biblical view of sex and sexuality applies in becoming a “godly lady-in-waiting”.

NOTE: As this is written to an older audience (mainly senior high and college girls) I would recommend it for the audience to which it is written and no younger than that.

So…one last thing:
