Success Before Sex: Young Christian writes book geared to teens
Fellow members of Jones’ home congregation — the Pitman Church of Christ — encouraged her to publish the essay in book form. “Success Before Sex” is now available at Amazon.com.
“The adults around Sharnice saw immense value in having a teenager write for other teenagers about these very sensitive topics,” said Katherine Cooper, wife of Pitman minister Dan Cooper.
Jones, now 18 and a pre-med major at Drew University, also has started a not-for-profit organization designed to empower teen girls.
It’s called “Success 1st!”
“God wants us to wait until marriage to have sex,” Jones said. “Understanding that not everyone is going to believe this is pivotal to get a message across.”
