    Good comment, Mel. I'm sure that since you have daughters, this is a sensitive topic for you. I look at my 16-year-old niece and pray that she doesn't fall into the world's sexual traps, but because she's not being raised in a Christian home and she's "not into the church thing," as she told me not too long ago (which means she isn't open to my witnessing, either), I am greatly concerned that she might make a wrong decision in the heat of the moment.

    This is important, parents. Talk to your kids often about sexual purity, and do it with an attitude of love. Don't neglect to show them your love at all times, especially you fathers, because if your daughters don't feel that you love them and are interested in them as persons and not just an extension of you, those vulnerable young women will go looking for that love and acceptance somewhere else. And as many of us know from sad experience, a young man often will say whatever a young woman wants to hear to get her to take things to a sexual level.

    Don't wait until they get to be college age to discuss this. By then, their minds are already made up about the matter, and anything you say at that point will be too little too late if you never tried to have the conversation before. Chances are, if they're considering the idea of having sex (if they haven't already started), they've already been involved in some heavy making out by this age, and their hormones are raging. If you haven't laid the groundwork yet, anything you try to say at this point will be seen as either old-fashioned, an attempt to control your son/daughter's life, or hypocritical if the child knows you didn't enter your own marriage lily-white and never had the courage to talk to him/her about the mistakes you made.

    Remember, this advice is coming from someone who has walked in a daughter's shoes. I hope I haven't offended, but if I have, I hope the offense leads to positive action.

    God bless all who read this and who heed God's leading in the matter. Mel, thanks for giving me another opportunity to witness from my own experience.

    Thanks Traci. I must admit, I have great trepidation about this. I must do this sometime, but I don't know when or how! I know boys, since I was one, and I make no apologies for offending any of my brothers in this, but you are right! They will say and do anything to get a girl in bed, and even boys with christian values can be swayed by ther horomones and other strong influences in this.

    Lord Help Us!

    Thanks for the welcome, brother. I've got my hands full today with my site server. Hopefully, we'll get it straightened out and move on to more pleasant matters like this. Again, thanks.
