  1. yo people
    I really love the layout of akhomeschoolfun.wordpress.com. Looks good, keep it up!
    anyways..
    Im a very “faithful” christian and I guess I have a few questions on my mind..
    I’ve been thinking a lot about dating.. but im not sure where to get going.
    My brothers have been telling me christian dating is the way to go.. so I’ve done a little studying on christian relationships and found some stuff on google
    Would be nice to listen to your input.

  2. Christian,
    I’m glad you like my layout. I don’t like modern casual dating, especially when it is labeled as “Christian” (yes, I know you are promoting your own dating website). You need to understand the difference between seeking deep friendships and truly finding a lifemate to marry. This difference is being overlooked altogether too much.

    There are many good books available on living righteously, relationships, and dating for Christian young adults (Christian Light Publications has several for teens, men, and women). I would urge you to read some of them and prayerfully analyze your reasons for wanting to date. Casual dating promotes unfaithfulness and ISN’T Christian.

  3. Here’s the list of books from CLP. I’ve not read them myself:
    Beautiful Girlhood – Mabel Hale
    Christian Manhood – Merle Eshleman
    Courtship That Glorifies God – John Coblentz
    God’s Will For my Body-Guidance for Adolescents – John Coblentz
    Looking at Myself Before Loving Someone Else – John Coblentz
    What about Boy/Girl Friendships – Lester Showalter
    Young Man, Be Strong – David G. Burkholder
