Get Lost with Dannah Gresh

Posted on April 15, 2013 by John van der Veen There have been 1 comment(s)

 

Dannah Gresh is the best-selling author of eighteen books, including And the Bride Wore White, Lies Young Women Believe (with Nancy Leigh DeMoss), and What Are You Waiting For? A popular speaker nationwide, Dannah has long been at the forefront of the movement to encourage tweens and teens to pursue purity.

Dannah's new book, Get Lost, she traces God’s language of love through Scripture to help you pursue your heart’s deepest desires and seek love the way God designed it to be. Because once you identify your true longings and let God answer them, you’ll know just how to respond when romantic love comes along.

I exchanged a few questions with Dannah recently and wanted to share them with you.

What made you interested in being an author?

I have loved writing since I was very small. Entered a national poetry contest when I was in first grade and won. Haven't stopped since. The catch is that when I was a teenager I dreamed of being a fiction writer. If only! God calls me to write the truth of my life transparently so that others can learn from my hurt and heartache without taking the field trip themselves!

What books are you reading?

I have a dozen books on my nightstand at any given time. A few favorites this past year have been One Thousands Gifts by Ann Voskamp and Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis. I'm counting the days to summer because I have [Frank] Peretti's Illusion waiting for a day on my hammock under the shade trees!

Who is your biggest influence?

My mom! Her faith led me to Christ and she has been a prayer warrior for me through the years. I long to have her selflessness and purity of heart.

What does your family do to relax?

We live on a hobby farm with horses, peacocks, llamas, fainting goats, chickens, dogs and cats. Relax might not be the right word, but we like loving them. (Translation: We muck stalls, throw hay and herd them when they get loose).

Coffee or tea?

I'm a tea girl, but everyone on my tour team drinks coffee so they are slowly winning me over. I'm up to half a cup of coffee with half a cup of milk in it! Of course, they say I am a wimp.

  • So, I'm doing Get Lost as a bible study with my friend, Kristin, and I have a question (I wrote in the Write Your Story section at the end of the first chapter). Here it goes:
    So, there's this guy I like, but I'm not sure if I LIKE him, or if I like him, you know what I mean? Sure, once in a while I write my full name with HIS last name after MY last name; but still, do I like him or not? When I think about it, he does 99% of the qualities I want in a guy like: he's a Christian, tallish, cute, (this is gonna sound stupid, but, hang in there with me) I THINK he's able to shoot a gun to (if we end up getting married) protect me and possible future kids, strong (but not a show-off), there when I "need" him (comfort),polite, generous, humble, nice, likes me for me (I think), respects me and my choices (including my purity ring), he TRUSTS and BELIEVES in God...........He's pretty much my dream-guy, except for the fact that he doesn't have dark, mahogany hair but, hey, do I REALLY need to be that picky? In MY opinion.....He's DREAMY! I THINK I like-like him, but do I really?
    P.S. Does it count if he said he loved me?
