4:00 – What You Need to Know About the Physical and Emotional Consequences of Sex Outside of Marriage
Teens have their whole lives ahead of them, but making poor choices can undermine their hopes for a bright future.

Pam Stenzel has written a book to help teens make the right choices, based on actual questions she has received. “Nobody Told Me” is for young men and women who want passionate, long-lasting marriages in the future but haven’t considered how the decisions they make now impact their chances for fulfillment. Pam joins us.

Mike is with us today to talk about his program.
