About the Above Activity



Carlianne and I are reading and working our way through a book called Growing Little Women.  We LOVE this book!  It is for moms and daughters to read and work through together and is really facilitating some good conversations between us!  Not that we have a hard time talking(!), but this has a lot of stuff we haven't thought of!  (Yes, we DO carry this book, on this page; as well as one for younger girls, on this page! Both versions are also sold on this page.)

Well, one of the activities in this book, (called an "Action Idea" ~ on page 41) is right here:


Set up a time to meet with a high school or college girl who is a Christian and is leading a life of purity because of what Christ means to her. What has given her the strength to do the right things?

This gave me an idea!  And if you know *anything* about me, you already know what it might be! ... Yes!  A NEW FORM! I thought it would be more fun and thorough for Carlianne to have some good questions on hand when doing her interviewing, so, together, we made up a form called a "Purity of Heart" Interview Form! This questionnaire form will help facilitate a good, in-depth conversation between a younger girl and an older girl! It would be best done by tape recording the conversation (with permission, of course!) so that the flow of the conversation isn't slowed down or inhibited by the interviewer having to take the time to write down the interviewee's responses.

For any of you who are wondering what this "purity of heart" thing is about... This is not
about "just waiting to have s_x," nor is it really about the commonly-used term "courtship" ~ only because that term has too many connotations. We are just into purity, integrity, and God's timing in romance and ALL relationships. I have a section on this at my Article Chart called "Romance & Relationships God's Way" ~ about a third of the way down the page. To go to the one I wrote that's a good intro to this message, called "From My Heart," click here. (There are links to the interview form on that page and on the High School Helps Main Page in the "New Bonus Forms" section ~ toward the bottom of that page.)



With love,

Barb and Carlianne



P.S. The reason I have the explanation AFTER the form is so that you can print out *just* the form if you prefer, and also so that it will start at the top of a page.  ...  And I have to write "s_x" or the Christian internet filters will ban my site!
