Why Is This Book So Necessary Today?

Well, here are just a few statistics...

90%

of men have already had sex before marriage. The stats are not much better for women at 89%

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

72%

of Black men have had a child out of wedlock.

According to Pew Research

69%

of Black women give birth outside of marriage.

According to Child Trends

Without fathers...

children are at FOUR times greater risk for poverty. SEVEN times more likely to become pregnant as teens. TWO times more likely to drop out of school. More likely to go to prison. More likely to commit crime. More likely to face abuse and neglect. More likely to abuse drugs and alcohol. More likely to have behavioral problems.

According to the National Fatherhood Initiative

One In Five

One out of every five people in the U.S. have a sexually transmitted infection or disease.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

This is NOT what GOD intended for us!

These statistics are stunning! God never wanted us to live like this! He wants us to experience His best in life. Waiting until marriage for sex as He instructed helps us avoid all of this! We are exposed to all of these things that can harm us physically, emotionally and relationally when we do things our own way. If we would just follow His instruction, we'd live above all of this drama and pain. But it's up to us. We have to choose!

That's why this book was written!

To encourage young men to choose a different way. To consider the long-term benefits of waiting for sex until marriage rather than walking the same path of promiscuity that so many walk today.

Not in a preachy, finger-pointing, holier-than-thou kind of way, but through a dope, entertaining, down-to-earth practical story that all can enjoy.

If that’s you, or if you want to sow into the life of a young man on the verge of deciding which path to take, you'll want to grab a copy of this book right away.

My Desire For Everyone Who Reads This Book

This college love story is a reason "WHY.” Yes, the Bible tells us to wait for sex until marriage
(1 Corinthians 7; Hebrews 13), but we don’t always talk about the WHY behind the wait.
Does God just want to keep us from having fun? Absolutely not! When you do things God’s way, the result is always amazing— so much better than the counterfeit happiness the world offers.
But at a young age, it’s difficult to see that.
My prayer is that this HBCU romance novel will give readers a WHY. I want it to give you a reason bigger than yourself,
your present reputation, and even the things your own body may be telling you to do.
I want to give you permission to relax—to enjoy youth and not create a complicated, drama filled life by
“just havin' fun" with premarital sex like so many others.
I want to give you (and others you will turn these pages) something to aspire to—God’s best in your future
marriage and family. The best is yet to come, my friend!
Enjoy!
