Today, the typical woman loses her virginity at age 16 and has 2 or 3 committed relationships before getting married. She has at least 1 one-night-stand (which she deeply regrets). She may have also had a college friend-with-benefits. There’s a 16% chance that she’s experimented with girl-on-girl sex. By the time she marries at age 27, she’s had about 4 or 5 sexual partners.
Given her sexual history, the typical woman has a 50/50 chance of getting an STD. The likelihood that she indulges in pornography and erotica on a semi-regular basis is about 60%. And there’s an 18% chance that she has a serious porn addiction.
The typical woman almost certainly has issues with her self-image. When she has kids, she starts having a tough time maintaining a satisfactory work-home balance. She’s overstressed. She experiences difficulty in her marriage. There’s a 25% chance that she’ll become clinically depressed. There’s a 19% chance that she’ll cheat on her husband and have an affair. The likelihood of her marriage failing is more than 30%. She’ll probably be the one to initiate the divorce.
And that scenario doesn’t even take into account the toll that negative experiences such as father absence (33%), abuse (15-35%), and abortion (28%) will have on her psyche.
I meet thousands of women like this.
Outwardly, they look all cute and put-together. But inwardly, they’re broken and hurting. They’ve embraced popular wisdom in their pursuit of happiness, but they’ve ended up shooting themselves in the foot. Their choices have backfired, and have only resulted in disappointment and pain.

If so, you’re not alone. All of us have felt this way.
The truth is, none of us have the smarts to consistently make good choices. We all need help. And the sooner we realize it the better!

So where can you get good counsel? Most of us simply follow the crowd. We embrace popular wisdom. But popular wisdom tends to give women really dumb advice. And sadly, the advice of girlfriends is often just as bad.
There’s a far more reliable source of help available:

If you’re new to Girls Gone Wise (and you probably wouldn’t be on this page if you weren’t) I have a few suggestions for steps you can take that will help you get started:
This award-winning book is based on a story about a woman from the book of Proverbs, the Bible’s book of wisdom. The narrative clearly depicts the contrast between a wise and a wild woman. And when I say “wild” I’m not just talking about someone from a romance novel or star of the latest hit movie. She’s the girl next door, your best friend, or someone in your family. She may even be you.
Every week I get emails about the profound difference this book has made in women’s lives. I’m so convinced that it will make a difference in YOUR life, that I’m willing to offer you a money-back guarantee. If you read it from cover to cover, and don’t think its concepts will help you in life and love, then just email me. I’ll refund the cost of the book in full.
Get the book. It will help you walk wisely. I promise![su_button url=”http://www.amazon.com/Girls-Gone-Wise-World-Wild/dp/0802451543″ target=”blank” background=”#ff6666″ size=”5″ center=”no”]Get it Now[/su_button]

I was unhappy in my marriage, so I had an affair. Needless to say, that choice messed up my life and resulted in even more unhappiness. Girls Gone Wise convicted me and opened my eyes to truth. Now I work hard every day to make wise choices. I’m starting to see that when I pursue happiness at the expense of wisdom, I get neither. But when I pursue wisdom above happiness, I get both.Rachel
I was stunned when you presented the idea that sex is a picture of the gospel. My view on sex has been very self-focused and pleasure-focused. But thanks to your teaching, my thinking is being redeemed. It’s so wonderful to find Christ in something that had only enslaved me. The truth I’m learning from Girls Gone Wise is setting me free.Carla
I have lived a double life as long as I can remember, acting like the good Christian girl at church and around my parents but acting like a wild thing around my friends and when I was alone. Girls Gone Wise helped me see how close I came to ruining my own life. I’ve become more honest and authentic about my struggles. I’ve dropped my defenses and become more teachable and willing to accept correction – which is totally new for me!Tabitha
