Godly principles on teenage dating

I talked with homeschool parents, students and alumni all over the country and started to see some challenges with making courtship work.

When I was a teenager, my friends started reading this new book called I Kissed Dating Goodbye. After reading it myself, I grew into as big an opponent of dating as you could find.

Regardless of who mistreated you, what lies you’ve been told, or how bad your past has been—you have a future and God has good plans for you. This will be your family, your friends, your community, your co-workers, and your future family. You have incredible skills and abilities to develop for God’s glory. It starts at salvation, but that’s just the beginning! Let Him have His way in His time, and don’t always wish you were three years down the road. In other words, rather than really preparing for God’s best in His time, let’s just rush forward and pretend we’re there already. God has given every life some good authority—even if some authorities have let you down.

Worldly values include wealth, power, pleasure, revenge, fame, vanity and status.

These are the most important things to people who perceive no power or purpose beyond themselves.
