More changes occur in your body and brain during puberty than any other time in your life. Puberty marks the beginnings of big changes in your relationships with your parents and the opposite sex. It is a wonderful and exhilarating time, because you are finally becoming an adult, but it can be a stressful and overwhelming time, too. If you don't understand what's happening to you, or why, your early teenage years can be downright scary.

Facing the Facts was written to give you all the information you need to understand exactly what's happening to your body during the years ahead - and why God planned it to happen just that way. You'll learn about:

  • The role of puberty in the development of sexuality
  • How girls' and boys' bodies change, both inside and out
  • Exactly how a woman gets pregnant and gives birth
  • Why God wants you to save sex for marriage
  • Love and dating: how relationships mature
  • Tough answers to some tough problems.

Your body and its sexual nature are beautiful and exciting gifts from God that He wants you to understand and appreciate. Reading Facing the Facts and talking about it with your parents will help you be ready for the coming physical changes, equip you to better handle the sexual pressure you'll encounter throughout your life, and give you a better understanding of God's perfect design for sex.

Stan Jones, PHD, provost and professor of phychology at Wheaton College, is a nationally recognized Christian expert on sexuality. He has written books on phychology and Christianity and on homosexuality and has contributed numerous articles to such professional journals as American Phychologist.

Comments from people who have used this material:

I appreciate the way this book blends medical information with a biblical theology of sexuality
- Tim Stafford, Senior Writer, Christianity Today

"As a Christian Parent raised in a family that never discussed sex, I found this book (and the series) to be a great starting point. It hits all the right topics in a way that communicates a Christian view without using guilt or sounding preachy. Parents should read it themselves, then pass it on to their child. Don't wait for your child to hit puberty before you start talking about this important subject."

"This entire series is great for introducing sex in a godly way from a young age. I have found them to be informative, honest and clear about the importance of sex being saved for marriage."
- Christine Phillips

Great Series. I read books one and two to our daughter and my husband read them to our son between the ages of 6 and 8. The third book we chose to read to our 8 yr. old girl and 10 yr. old girl and 10 year old boy together as a family. We each read our "part" in the story and they looked forward to reading each chapter. It was a wonderful family time which I believe resulted in a healthy understanding of the basic facts of life and took the "embarrassment" out of the subject. I recommend these to all my friends!

I have found these books to be tremendously helpful to our family when dealing with the subject of introducing sex to our daughters. The content in each book is right on target and easily grasped by our girls. The books use appropriate vocabulary geared to each age level. The illustrations are also tastefully rendered. The hand drawn pictures show just enough definition so children 'get the point' but not vividly drawn that kids 'only' zero in on the reality of the picture. I appreciate that greatly. Thank you Carolyn for an excellent book series. We will be reading book 3 soon and looking forward to it.
