Sex and the Single Christian Girl
Fighting for Purity in a Rom-Com World
by Marian Jordan Ellis
"Marian Jordan Ellis befriends all women in their quest to honor God with their bodies, calling them to settle for no less than being cherished ... and pointing them to dependence on the Holy Spirit instead of reliance on self."
—Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and The Sacred Search
You are cherished. Whether you are happily single, casually dating, or have found "the one," your purity is worth fighting for.
Marian Jordan Ellis on why waiting for sex until marriage - whatever your age - is walking the path of God's best for you.
"Marian has provided a road map, an app, a guidebook, and a personal "spiritual Siri" all in one, giving any single woman what she needs to walk a life of obedience." Read what author Gary Thomas and others are saying about Jordan Ellis' new book.
"This book is for Jesus-loving girls living in a romantic-comedy world. We may know what God says about sexual purity, but living it out proves to be a completely different story. It can be a tough world for a godly girl."

In a culture rife with lies about sex and what makes women valuable, I’m particularly grateful for Jordan Ellis' courage, compassion, and voice of truth that encourages us to grow in our love for Jesus.
We can’t stand up to the culture by being against it. We have to be for something, and that something must be fueled by a deep and abiding passion. The answer Jordan Ellis offers is not the right answer, it is the only answer.
I strongly prefer the tendency to talk about sexual morality in terms of chastity rather than purity. Chastity is a practice and applies to married people as well as to singles, and is a form of temperance.
