Bro. Jo's Guide to Relationships for Single Young Adults and Casual Dating for Teens
Walnut Springs Press has two books that anyone who is dating, and between the ages of 16- 30, will enjoy these books. After reading the book specifically for LDS Young Single Adults, I wished that I had read this book 18 years ago. I know that I will be reading up on it again if/when I start dating again. (Not that I am still a "Young" Single Adult, but there are still some great dating ideas for older people.
Speaking of dating, Bro. Jo also has a book for teenagers and how to casual date. This book is for the 16-19 crowd. Everyone with a teenager NEEDS this book! I know that my own children will be reading these books a lot! I have "talked" to Bro. Jo and he said he is working on a book about why 11-15 year olds should not date. I can't wait until that book is published.
So go ahead and check out these two great books by Bro. Jo.
Bro. Jo takes the guesswork out of relationships!
Most of us want to get sealed for time and all eternity someday, somehow, to someone. You may not be anywhere near ready, you may think you're ready but you're
not, you may be close, or you may have already arrived and are wondering, "Well, now what?" Wherever you're at, this book is here to help!
Finally, a gospel-centered book that's as frank as it is funny, from Dave Johnston, the writer of DearBroJo.blogspot.com. It's the fastest-growing advice blog for LDS teens and young single adults.
Here's what readers say about Bro Jo's advice:
"It just seems like Bro Jo knows stuff"
"Where was this guy when I was younger?"
"Hilarious! It would be even funnier if it weren't so gosh darn true."
"I really like your advice site and that you are brutally honest, down-to-earth, realistic, but spiritual too."
"What you just did ... hit me like a rock in the face. Thank you."
"I love what you do!"
