Dayton Christian Moms are invited to attend a teaching time on “raising pure teens in an impure world” with a question/answer session to follow
Dannah Gresh on Thursday, January 28th at 10:00am.
When Dannah Gresh was eight years old, she prayed a prayer devoting her life to serving God with all her heart, all her mind and all her soul. But she forgot to love him well during her teen years. The plan to devote herself to the Lord was derailed by sexual pain. Healing seemed elusive, but when it did come it overflowed from her heart and into the lives around her. First one teen girl. Then a cabin-full. And it was only the beginning of what God would do with a broken heart. Today Dannah is a best-selling author and sought-after speaker.
Her best-selling titles include And the Bride Wore White and 2010’s best-selling CBA youth book, Lies Young Women Believe co-authored with Nancy Leigh DeMoss and most recently Six Ways to Keep the Little in Your Girl and Six Ways to Keep the Good in Your Boy. She has long been at the forefront of the movement to encourage tweens and teens to be modest and to pursue purity. In addition to Pure Freedom, which hosts live events for teens and creates resources for individual and group use, she is the founder of Secret Keeper Girl, a live tour event for tween girls and their moms.
A frequent guest for national radio, TV and print mediums, Dannah is called upon to defend the conservative position of abstinence in national newspapers and magazines like the Chicago Tribune, TIME and Women’s Wear Daily. She has also appeared on FoxNews.com live. Her conversational and edgy interview style generates tremendous listener response on radio and television! Family Life Today, Midday Connection and Focus on the Family have included their interviews with Dannah in “best of” annual showcases. Dannah has also been a featured contributor to many national magazines.
Over 500,000 have attended a live event facilitated by Dannah or a team member trained by Dannah. She is a firm believer in interactive teaching. At a live event, you’ll likely see a middle-school boy duct-taped to the wall, or a high school girl hitting the fashion runway. Each of these interactive experiences is designed to teach strong character and biblical values. She is the creator of the published Pure Freedom retreats curriculum which accompany And the Bride Wore White and Who Moved the Goalpost? Nearly 20,000 churches have led their own events using her curriculum based on the Pure Freedom retreat.
