It's no secret that I love to read. I am constantly downloading free or almost free books onto my Kindle. Anytime I can get a few quiet minutes, I read. Whenever I'm dealing with an issue or struggle, I read. Whenever I need clarity or guidance, I read. And whenever I find a book that I really like, I want to share it with others.
Yesterday while I was doing some research on dating and purity, I came across a book called "Dating Like Airplanes" by Caleb Breakey. I know it's a very weird title but as I read the description of the book, I was intrigued. Here's what it said:
It's no secret...
Flying in love? I had never heard that before. As the mom of 3 teenagers and a pre-teen, we have lots of discussions about dating and courting and purity. So when I read the fist chapter, I knew this was a book that my teenagers needed to read.
If you're the parent of a teenager and want them to have healthy relationships with the opposite sex, I highly recommend this book.
Here is a small excerpt from the first chapter that I think gives a great overview:
Falling in love is exhilarating-the rush of jumping off the ledge, the ecstasy of plunging into wide-open space- but it inevitably ends in broken bones. Not only your own, but also the bones of the one who has fallen with you.
I'm excited to read this book with my teenagers this summer and pray that they choose to fly above the brokenness instead of falling in love.
