Drawing upon their pioneering work in the field of home schooling as well as their work with young people, Michael and Judy Phillips present bold, surprising, sometimes even controversial alternatives to dating as the means for choosing spouses. We believe that dating is a good thing, and that it can be a context of growth, enjoyment and ultimately finding a mate in life.
Henry Cloud, my coauthor, and I wrote this book for singles(both previously and never married), because of the struggle we observed people dealing with in their dating lives.
But in order for this to happen, people must learn to define themselves clearly and set the appropriate boundaries, or limits in their relationships.
In this way, love, responsibility and freedom can result in dating.
The books and messages in this section will re-train your mind to seek guidance about relationships from the principles in the Word of God rather than merely the desires of men.
By Michael and Judy Phillips Young people need a whole new strategy for finding lifetime mates. These struggles included having to become another person in order to keep someone; feeling controlled in the relationship; putting up with inappropriate behavior and attitudes; and sexual and moral conflicts.
The philosophy of "dating" clearly cannot be trusted - the horrid fruits are too obvious!
I hope you enjoy the book, and that it is a help to you.
