Preparing Children for Marriage: How to Teach God's Good Design for Marriage, Sex, Purity, and Dating by Josh Mulvihill
Your children will make few decisions more important than their decision to marry. But they must make other choices before thendecisions about purity, dating, and their roles as men and women. Are they prepared? In this highly practical guide, Joshua Mulvihill lays out a biblically grounded plan for preparing young children for later challenges. Our culture is zealous in reaching children with its own take on sex and marriage, but shouldn't we be able to talk about these things and their place in God's larger narrative? Parents, grandparents, and others in the church will learn how to bring the truth home by starting the conversation with their children earlyand returning to it often.
