Ready. Set. Not Yet!
Secrets for Teens about Sex
by Marva M. Tyndale

Your Path to Sexual Wholeness In a highly sexualized society and culture, young people can feel overwhelmed with temptation, pressure, and conflicting messages. Ready. Set. Not Yet! reaches teens by building a bridge that breaks the silence between older and younger generations. Using the metaphor of a champion sprinter in the starting blocks awaiting the start of a race, Ready. Set. Not Yet! presents unique, relevant, and refreshing perspectives. • Provides an oasis of hope beyond the usual teachings on “sexual purity,” which often seems out of reach. • Helps teens discover the spiritual mysteries God had in mind when He invented sex. These mysteries and other “secrets” give young people compelling reasons to pursue sexual wholeness. • Presents an authentic and welcoming tone that creates a safe place for young men and women to explore their feelings, uncertainties and life goals. Reflection questions, practical ideas, prayer tools, and a wealth of scripture make Ready. Set. Not Yet! a valuable resource for teens, parents, and youth workers.

"There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact." —1 Corinthians 6:16 The Message
