Raised in the deep South, author Sue Ellyn Carpenter-Barton followed her calling to become a teacher and taught in her local church the classes of women, young adults, teens, and children. She later traveled as a vocalist with her two sisters, forming a trio known as “The Carpenter Sisters.” An avid Bible reader since her mid-teens, Sue Ellyn has received many revelations in her study of the scriptures and has served as a pianist in five churches. In addition to her career in teaching and music, the author, along with her family, served in missions led by her parents, Reverend Lester and Mrs. Zelma Carpenter, in the hills of Jamaica and among the Cherokees in the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. In her spare time, Sue Ellyn enjoys writing, and was also a playwright, with one of her dramas professionally presented in “Ole Mr. Peabody.”
“The purpose of this book is to promote abstinence before marriage,” writes Sue Ellyn. “It depicts why it is so important to a marriage. After all, abstaining before marriage pleases God, and it keeps one from ‘defiling their marriage bed,’ and it avoids the emotional attachment both experience after a sexual encounter.
“In today’s world, sex is everything. Upon meeting a person, sex must take place that very night, or so it seems. Preteens are having sex with other preteens, teenagers are running wildly with sex, and young adults seem to believe it’s the thing to do. The ‘whole world is doing it’ is the take for all to consider.”
Sue Ellyn continues, “This book is a must-read for preteens, teenagers, and young adults, as well as all other dating individuals. Also, it’s important for parents of these age groups to read the book in order to teach their youth and others, as well.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Sue Ellyn Carpenter-Barton’s new book is a powerful tale of the importance of abstinence in an ever-changing world that places so much focus on sex.
