FaithWords Pure: A 90-Day Devotional for the Mind, Body & Spirit

The pressures on young people today to live promiscuous lives is overwhelming. Though many are succumbing to temptation, many others are not - including award-winning music artist Rebecca St. James. She knows what it takes to live a life of radical purity. In this daily devotional, she shares messages about abstinence, modesty and living for Jesus. The stories from her own life - as well as insights from Scripture - will inspire young women to join her in this journey of faith.

I bought this book when it first came out, and now I'm 25 and am still loving it! It's written very nicely, it's easy to understand, and it gives the reader some great points as to why you should wait until marriage to have sex ;) I recommend this!

I flipped through it before purchasing it and it surpassed even "skimming" expectations. Rebecca St. James has good insight and appropriate Scripture to make her point.

This gift was a book for my niece who like all teens were facing peer pressure, the pressure to do things to fit in all while she experiences insecurities on her looks, intelligence, etc. She loves this book and says it helps her to focus on her and her relationship with God. She was too excited to read it only once a day and zipped through it. However, she continues to read it daily as constant reminders.

As a married woman, I found large tracts of Pure as equally applicable to my own life as to that of a single woman. St. James addresses purity from three angles: Purity of Mind, Purity of Body, and Purity of Spirit. Providing a multi-pronged approach that goes far beyond physical abstinence (though it is addressed), the insights and conclusions that are drawn from both St. James personal experience and scripture are equally relevant to any believer as they are to unmarried young women.Each day opens with a topical heading and a section of scripture to focus in on. The Bible readings are taken from the NIV, NLT and modern Bible paraphrase The Message. St. James then shares from her own experiences during Reflection, digs into the scripture text in Looking Further, and supplies practical actions and prayer points in Living It Out. With each daily reading measuring approximately three pages in length, the result is accessible yet thought provoking, providing enough meat to avoid a devotion-lite aroma.In a culture that champions promiscuity, taking a stand for purity is radically countercultural, and can lead to feelings of isolation. St. James sharing of the heart from her daily life and relationship with the Lord provides a sense of sisterhood and camaraderie. There are others who struggle with determining appropriate behaviour and boundaries, controlling their thought life, waiting patiently, and surrendering all to God - despite the outcome. Whether you or a loved one struggles with commitment to purity or are simply seeking to grow in the faith, St. James comes alongside like an old friend: sharing, encouraging, and ultimately pointing to Jesus as the satisfier of all souls.

Many people think of being pure as an action--something they must do--rather than... something they can be.For time-sensitive people, this is a wonderful devotional tool. Using the book as intended, devotions take less than five minutes a day. Each day is divided into three sections: Reflection, where the topic is introduced; Looking Further, where a deeper study enriches; and Living It Out, where a challenge is given. A myriad of topic include perfectionism, body image, her fifteen years in Christian music, and insecurity.I heartily recommend this to all ages who would like to be pure for Christ in mind, body, and spirit.

Pure by Rebecca St. James is a 90-day devotional that is designed to minister to the body, mind and Spirit. This amazing book challenges you with powerful scripture and suggestions for living the Word of God. The authors personal reflections inspire and drive home the point of the daily reading. The Looking Further section gives the reader a deeper understanding of the daily topics. This is a must read for young and old. It has touched me, and I will re-read this book for sure.

In today's world, where society rules with messages of "free love", "do it if it feels good", and (the famous) "everybody does it"; it is so refreshing to be reminded that there are young people out there living the good life, promoting values, pushing positive self-esteems, and encouraging others to WAIT!If you have a daughter, niece, sister, etc... YOU WILL WANT THIS BOOK!
