This is the first time I've ever talked about this topic. Recently I've finished reading a book titled Eyes Wide Open by Brienne Murk. After reading it, I loved the book. It explains how we should live our lives out through emotional and sexual purity. This book has changed my life. It's the first book I've read where it addresses the issues I struggle with. It has shown me what I need to do and not do for practicing purity and how to seek God when it comes to struggles with purity. My life has gotten much better after reading this book. My love for Christ has grown immensely too. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to living a life of purity. God wants to heal us from the inside out. Never give up seeking after Him.
