Unless you have been living under a rock in this country, it is very obvious how highly sexualized our society has become. Everywhere the eye can look from TV, magazines, Internet, and movies, to advertising, billboards and even texting on cell phones, we are living in a sex saturated society. The ramifications and consequences to our culture – especially the youth – have yet to play out entirely.
Mark Gungor and Laugh Your Way America have put together basic information that every teen needs to know when it comes to the subjects of sex, dating and relating. After years of working with married couples who were struggling in their relationships, we discovered that so often the troubles were rooted in mistakes that people made during their teen years.
Together, Mark and Pam Stenzel bring parents and teens the hard-hitting, no-nonsense wisdom not often heard in the secular or faith culture today. These messages will help teens and their families make wise decisions enabling the next generation to build strong and successful marriages and families… without all the physical and emotional baggage.
