About the Author
Jennifer Strickland is a blessed wife and mother of three, author, speaker, and founder of U R More, a ministry that teaches people their value, identity, and purpose in Christ. For fifteen years, Jennifer worked as a professional model, but the flesh-obsessed world of modeling left her heartbroken and ashamed. While living in Europe, she found Christ, and left modeling in search of a more authentic life. Since then, she has become a dynamic conference speaker and has written several books and Bible studies, helping women of all ages find their true value.
Since 2007, she has spoken to tens of thousands of teens and women of all ages, inspiring them to embrace their identity as God's beloved daughters and beautiful creations. She speaks on self-worth, beauty, body image, eating disorders, identity, self harm, sexual purity, modesty, forgiveness, releasing shame, and turning one's past into purpose.
“Jennifer Strickland brings hope, healing, grace, and truth in this wonderful book. All studies show that the more positive healthy sex education kids receive, the less promiscuous they will become. This book can help anyone rethink the way today’s culture often looks at sex and help them find a much healthier view of sexuality. Jennifer Strickland is a wonderful writer and speaker with one of the most important messages to girls of this generation. I highly recommend this book.”

“In a culture that seeks to convince us sexual purity is an antiquated philosophy, Jennifer Strickland proves the opposite. In 21 Myths (Even Good) Girls Believe about Sex, she uncovers the lies that would have us believe purity of mind and body stands in the way of our sexual freedoms. Through candid stories, analogies, and personal transparency she reveals the truth about sex—that purity does not inhibit physical pleasure but liberates us to enjoy sex the way it was designed to be. . .pleasure without pain or remorse.”
