It’s no secret that this stage of life is a tough one! The dating process is complicated and confusing—and that’s before difficulties like how to graciously decline a date, how to guard your bodies and hearts, and how to deal with sexual sin in your past.
But we are writing you with great news! God cares about you and your relationships, and his Word shares meaningful and practical advice. Sean Perron and Spencer Harmon, along with their wives, Jenny and Taylor, have written you several letters to guide you through this season of dating—each one is short, practical, and relevant, and contains discussion questions to help you apply it even more personally.
Whether you are struggling with singleness, enduring a breakup, embarking on a new relationship, or even making the final step toward engagement, opening up these letters will help you to start some helpful, God-honoring conversations.
