In our postmodern world, we are so driven by our emotions that in “living for the moment” we’ve forgotten to guard our most precious treasure—our hearts. Young people may not realize it, but acts that appear innocent—such as e-mail and instant messages—can entangle our emotions and lead the heart to places it should not go. Most people give their hearts away long before they give their bodies away, so it is imperative that young people learn the importance of emotional purity, how to avoid the steps that too often lead to a physical downfall and how to live pure lives. Like talking to a big sister who’s gone before them, reading Eyes Wide Open will give young people the necessary keys for making decisions about purity, love and romance. She also shows them how to acquire a thirst for purity as they realize it is not just another rule, but a path that leads to a dimension of deep and fresh living where they can truly thrive.

From the Back Cover:

“Even if we aren’t having sex, the cycles of dating and breaking up with someone can be promiscuous. We are casually giving our hearts away—one piece at a time.” You’ve heard the abstinence message. You aren’t sleeping together. You didn’t even kiss. So why do you feel so guilty? God cares how you treat your feelings just as much as how you treat your body—and He has a plan to keep you on the right track. In Eyes Wide Open, author Brienne Murk describes the necessity of guarding your most precious treasure—your heart. As a single young woman, she has dealt with the same relational issues that face every young person, and she candidly shares her experiences and her mistakes. With Eyes Wide Open, you’ll learn how easy it is to let your emotions get the best of you, but more importantly, how to protect yourself from heartbreak. Whether you are in a relationship, just got out of one, are hoping for one to start, or just have friends of the opposite sex, this book will equip you to have healthy relationships in all aspects of your life.
