Below is an excerpt from lisa's newest book,
'Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry.'
We were created to be so much more than a sexual outlet for men. As women we want and deserve more than just sexual release for ourselves ¦we crave intimacy romance and passion. We want to know and be known. But, there can be no true intimacy where there is no trust and no lasting trust where there is not covenant. How can you possibly trust someone who is not willing to wait for you, to lay aside his immediate sexual passions, to commit to a long-term relationship? By nature men are conquerors and when they've already enjoyed the spoils of victory they become restless to move on to the next conquest.
Which begs another quirky twist in the dynamic of male and female relationships it is almost impossible to begin with sexual contact and then upgrade to a deeper realm. Men are not interested in knowing more thoroughly those they have already known too quickly. (No matter how movies may suggest otherwise) Why take the time to examine closer the label of a wine bottle you've already emptied?
(John Bevere - above) Lisa Bevere, 46, was raised a Catholic, she made a Christian commitment at the age of 21.

How far can I go? It’s the question of a generation wanting straight answers. Often the very questions we ask reveal our hearts better than anything else.
In Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry, Lisa Bevere tackles these tough issues by moving us from rules to relationship. There is no question we need a renewal of purity, but what we’re doing is not working.
How far can you go? Ask yourself: What do you ultimately want? Immediate and temporary gratification that wanes with the passage of time? Or passion and exclusive intimacy that endures and intensifies?
God wants to move us beyond the restraint of the law (which arouses sin) and plant us into a garden of longing -- where our sexuality and passion is carefully guarded and cultivated until the time for its awakening. This is a book for every daughter in waiting and every woman who has never known desire in her life and marriage.
