Reviewers continue to rave about And the Bride Wore
White: Seven Secrets To Purity
. But the greatest proof of it's effect is in
the lives of tens of thousands of young women who've embraced the book's message.
Each chapter of And the Bride Wore White begins with a narrative of Dannah
Gresh's young love life, taken from her own teenage journals. She transparently
shares her struggles and successes, her moments of pain followed by healing and
the moments of triumph. This story-line grips the young reader while they learn
statistically proven risk-reduction factors. The end result are usable "how-to-say-no"
skills that can reduce the risk of a young woman's heart being broken by sexual
sin. In this update, Dannah and her friends share open letters of encouragement
to young women, one for those who chose life and another to those who chose abortion,
a letter to teen girls addicted to pornography and another to girls who have experienced
sexual abuse, and many more specific to a young woman's unique circumstances. Over

What others are saying . . .

Dannah has tasted the pain
and regret of opening God's good gift of sex before its proper time. She has also
experienced the sweet healing, freedom, and joy of walking in repentance, forgiveness,
and grace. Her message is one every teen girl-and each of their moms-needs to hear.
I'm so thankful for the way she is allowing God to use her story, grounded in His
Word, to speak into the lives of young women. God is using her to speak into the
lives of young women in an engaging and powerful way. I wish I could persuade every
teen girl-and every mom-to read this book. ~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss,
co-author with Dannah Gresh of Lies Young Women Believe

Dannah challenges
young women to say "yes" to what the white wedding dress represents. In a warm,
easy-to-read style, she counters the message of this sex-crazed culture with priceless
pearls of truth. ~ Mary A. Kassian, author of Girls
Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild

I admire Dannah Gresh in so many ways.
Her ministry is moving; her writing is relevant; she is a role model to women of
all ages and seasons of life. As a survivor, speaker and author on the topic of
sexual abuse, I constantly see and hear firsthand the pain of sexually broken and
I understand the deep need for Dannah's message. The re-release of her best-seller
And The Bride Wore White is an answer to the cry of our culture. This book
is a timeless classic that will bring healing and hope to all generations. ~ Nicole
Bromley, speaker & author, oneVOICEenterprises

I first read
And The Bride Wore White when it was an unpublished manuscript and
I was a freshman in college. I devoured it in a single setting and the lessons I
learned made a huge impact on my life. as a woman who has now been married
more than a decade I still remember and cherish the lessons Dannah presents
in this book. Dannah doeswhat other authors do not by moving beyond God's call to
purity and outlining a plan to make waiting possible and desirable. This book gave
me the blueprint to build a pure marriage, a gift that I am eternally grateful for.
Consider And The Bride Wore White a must read for every girl who's ever
dreamed of a pure and holy marriage. ~ Erin Davis, author of Graffiti:
Learning to See the Art in Ourselves

The loss of virginity is not simply
a physical state of being, but effects the emotional, mental and spiritual lives
of every girl. Which is why I appreciate Dannah Gresh and her passion to see girls
not only value their virginity, but why the ought to do so. With vulnerability,
humor and grace, this book provides girls with the tools they need to take ownership
of their bodies, minds and hearts. ~ Crystal Renaud, author of Dirty
Girls Come Clean

Human sexuality is at the center of most of the bitter
cultural struggles being waged in our day.  Far too many young women don't
know right from wrong when it comes to their bodies and their minds because they
have bought into the low moral standards promoted on television and in contemporary
movies and music.  In a friendly, personal manner, Dannah Gresh helps her readers
understand that sexuality is a beautiful gift from God and that He intends it to
be reserved for marriage.  I highly recommend And the Bride Wore White
to any young woman who wants God's best for her life. ~ Richard Land, President,
Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission & host, For Faith & Family

Dannah has a fresh way of sharing important truths we need to
hear.  In an age of moral decline even among our church youth, this message
is needed now more than ever.  Give Dannah your ear.  You won't be disappointed.
~ Anita Lustrea, host/producer, Midday Connection

As a mother
of two teenage daughters, I cannot think of any book more beautifully inspiring
than And the Bride Wore White.  My daughters loved Dannah's insights,
her humor, and her call for a life without regrets.  I am deeply grateful for
the realistic role model she is for my daughters...She has changed their lives,
and in doing so she has changed mine. ~ Tammy Maltby, author and
co-host of Emmy-nominated Aspiring Women
