Some examples I of concerning information...
1) Don't move out of your parent's home until you are married. Huh??? In a day and age where women are finding that their King isn't coming along until they are much older than 18 or 20 years old (if at all), is it realistic to tell a young lady to expect to remain in her parental home indefinitely?
2) Don't leave home at night without a male relative. Again, HUH??? While I am the only female child in a family full of brothers, my father always taught me to take care of myself. Yes, my brothers were always protective of me. Yes, they were always there for me. But, if I needed to do a store run at 10P, I wasn't dragging my brother along just because the sun went down.
There were others, but I'll stop there.
Overall, I found this to be VERY good information for young ladies. I believe it has a lot of information that families have strayed away from saying...stop having sex before marriage, find something to do instead of sitting around with idle time, focus on building a strong and cheerful home for yourself and your family after marriage. Our families are failing for so many reasons, and some of the reasons are because we've gotten away from the concepts identified between the pages of this book.
But overall this book means well & has good advice & insight! Especially to come from a man's point-of-view. He's straight to the point & gives brief intro's & presents his reasons in a list to make things easy. I still crack up after reading the chapters about dawgs & what kind of men not to bring home. This book is much better than Letters to a Young Sister, which I still can't really get into. Having the bullet points & lists makes Pastor Whyte's book more readable.
My suggestions for a collection to give to a young black woman: Letters to Young Black Women by Daniel Whyte III, Talks Your Dad Never Had with You by Dr. Harold D. Davis, the Blueprint for my Girls by Yasmin Shiraz, and Letters to a Young Sister by Hill Harper. I've had these four books since I was in high school and continue to use them because the life lessons are wonderful & help me as I go through college. There aren't many books out there specifically for us that are meant to help us, so I highly recommend these along with the most important guidebook for life the Bible in helping you on the journey to becoming the young Christian woman God has called you to be!
