Praise for Purity and Passion:
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who works with a range of clientele — individuals, couples, families and groups. My clinical focus is that of sexual addictions, and in particular, the influence of pornography on marital relationships. For the last several months, I have facilitated several therapy groups for women and men who are struggling with pornography's influence in their marriage. [This] book has been an invaluable resource and reference in this much needed work. I encourage couples to read it together and discuss how truths regarding marital intimacy have been distorted by pornography consumption. Many have commented on how useful the Appendix is, as it provides a concrete and specific listing of the ways God-ordained marital intimacy differs from that of the world's view. Many of the women I work with tend to blame themselves for their husband's pornography use. [This] book has been extremely validating and clarifying for this population. I have found it to help them see how their own spirituality and high standards are worth celebrating versus being undermined within the world's arena of sexual casualness. — Jill Manning, Marriage and Family Therapist

THE BEST book on Marital Intimacy!!
by Jane - reviewed on September 13, 2010
This book will not just take your marital inimacy and relationship to the next level, it will take it to the Celestial level! If you ever wondered how marital intimacy could be a most sacred spiritual experience for you and your spouse, you need to read this book. I bought this book and another popular LDS book on the topic. The other book was ok, but Purity and Passion is definitely the best! I would recommend it to singles and engaged couples just as much as to married couples. I feel it would even help someone's repentance and healing of past sexual sin as it so clearly teaches the difference between the world's perverted and lustful view of sex and the pure and sanctifying gift of marital intimacy. It teaches how to overcome anger, resentment, temptation and the many impurities which prevent marital intimacy from being the glorious healing experience that it should be. It teaches about how to build true love and unity so that a husband and wife will be irresistibly drawn to one another. This book has blessed our marriage relationship immensely. My husband is happy and so am I.
