One of the top selling youth authors under the age of forty, Dannah Gresh is best known for the best-selling And the Bride Wore White (Moody) and the Secret Keeper series (Moody/FamilyLife). She is the founder of Pure Freedom.
From Santa Barbara to New Zealand, from Tuscaloosa to Romania, she has sold more than 470,000 books, leaders guides, and curriculum bearing God's life-giving message of purity. In Zambia, a country of ten million, where nearly a million orphans have lost their moms and dads to AIDS, she presents a biblically-based public school curriculum that is bringing the life-saving message of abstinence to more than 100,000 Zambian children, many for the first time. And here in America, over 20,000 Pure Freedom retreats have been led by individual moms, dads, and youth pastors while more than 42,000 mothers and daughters have worked their way through the Secret Keeper Girl 8-week Bible study. That's more than 325,000 dates with mom! Dannah has personally guided more than 10,000 teenagers through the 15-hour Pure Freedom weekend retreat.
