God has so much more for our children than pop-culture conformity, spiritual atrophy, and sexual preoccupation. But for our kids to be numbered among the rare few that push aside the mediocre life of selfishness and press forward into Godís endless frontier, they need parents who are unwilling to let them settle in the land of compromise. Great parents, submitted to the vast potential of God, raise up great children. As Eric and I have traveled this country and interacted with countless young people, we have heard the desperate desire for godly teammates echoed over and over again among the younger generation. Our prayer is that this book will equip you, as a parent or leader, to become the answer to this generationís most urgent need.
If the younger generation is ever to escape the slime of the culture and experience vibrant successful relationships and marriages, they need parents who will rise to the challenge and point them to Godís highest. We pray that this message will inspire you to embrace that sacred call. This book is not written from a parent-to-parent perspective. Rather, this book is written from the perspective of the younger generation. We want this book to serve as a voice to you from todayís young people. We want to help articulate their perspective and help you better understand what they need and desire from you as parents and leaders. We pray the words contained within these pages will give you a vision for your amazing role in the transformation of a generation, and offer you the practical tools to see that vision become a reality.
Note: This book is also a great tool for young people who desire to reach their own peers, or those a few years younger, with Godís perspective on romance and relationships.
ďThis book is a blaring wakeup call to parents of teenagers, a valuable tool to help parents navigate the treacherous waters of adolescence.Ē
