Rate this book
THE REST OF THE STORY-ALL THE REALLY INTERESTING STUFF YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT SEX. More changes occur in your body and brain during puberty than any other time in your life. Puberty marks the beginning of big changes in your relationships with your parents and the opposite sex. It's a wonderful and exhilarating time, because you're 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, ages 11-14 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: 1) The role of puberty in the development of sexuality; 2) How girls' and boys' bodies change, both inside and out; 3) Exactly how a woman gets pregnant and gives birth; 4) Why God wants you to save sex for marriage; 5) Love and dating: How relationships mature; and 6) 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 fro the coming physical changes, equip you to handle the sexual pressures you'll encounter throughout your life, and give you a better understanding of God's perfect design for sex.
