Book review: Pure Love, Pure Life by Elsa Kok Colopy

     The Lowdown: Wouldn't it be great to live a pure, undefiled life? In today's culture, a truly pure life is hard to find. Being pure has as much to do with the spiritual as it does the physical. In this truthful, to the point book, Elsa Kok Colopy shares her story of her deep pit of heartache, and the awesome love of God that pulled her out of it. She shares techniques on how to avoid lust, and how to maintain your purity. She uses God's love letter to us as her ultimate resource, and shows how God can restore your life if you just give it to Him.
I liked:That this book was a great read, it covered numerous topics. It showed how we are made to love God, and used many wonderful analogies to how Jesus is our Prince Charming. I liked her use of true stories and how emotions can lead to sin when not handled properly.

I disliked: At times, I was quite uncomfortable reading about certain topics. Nothing said was untruthful, and was, in fact, necessary.  Just a bit uncomfortable.

Overall: I would recommend this book to girls ages 16+, maybe even older depending on your specific circumstance. Pray if you aren't sure if this book is right for you.
This book was given to me for free from Zondervan for this review.
