Passport to Purity Getaway Kit-review

 About the getaway kit:

(1) Tour Guide for the parent, (1) Travel Journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, and (8) CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and down loadable MP3s:  Session 1: Beginning the Journey - Challenges, Traps, and Choices; Session 2: Running With The Herd - Friendships and Peer Pressure; Session 3: Ready For An Upgrade? - Changes in Him, Changes in Her; Session 4: Destination: Lé Pure - Setting Boundaries; Session 5: Crossing The Date Line - Seeing Dating Differently 

Your child begins the journey into adolescence in a world of sexting, bullying, online stalking and moral defiance.  Innocence is under attack, and you cannot win the battle with a single awkward talk or a strict set of rules.  The primary defense for your child is a strong relationship with you and with God.  FamilyLife developed Passport2Purity (P2P) to assist you in building heart-to-heart communication with your preteen while laying a foundation of purity that will prepare him or her for the turbulent years ahead.  Through the shared listening experience, object lessons and guided conversations of a P2P weekend getaway, you can set your son or daughter on a journey of moral integrity - and strengthen the bond between you.  It is designed to be used by a mother and daughter or a father and son when the child is a preteen.  It is suggested that the materials be completed over a weekend away from home, as the child may be more open to discussing the topics away from his or her normal environment.  If this isn't possible, the material can be completed over a period of four or five weeks.

Sharing from my heart:

Makenzie and I had a great time on our mommy daughter getaway.  We just finished having a bunch of company in from Houston and then our friends from St. Louis came and stayed with us for Korea camp so we were pretty worn out.  I decided to see if my hubby could get us a room at the Hard Rock Hotel because it's only 5 miles away, has great rooms, several restaurants and a wonderful swimming pool.

We headed over and decided to have some dinner at the Route 66 diner and then take a dip in the pool.  Afterward, we headed upstairs to our room and got comfy in our PJ's and started off by praying that God would open doors and knock down any boundaries that might arise. Makenzie is a little old for this since the target age is pre-teen.  She actually just turned 15 last month, we've kept open communication with children about anything they want to talk about and of course things they don't want to discuss like sex.  I felt like this would be a great bonding opportunity for us (we're actually very close) but more as a young lady and mom, not the little girl/mom relationship.  We had so much fun!  I encourage you to do all the projects, even though she's 15 she still enjoyed them and she almost beat me on the puzzle!

There's no way I can cover everything we heard on the CD's, talked about from the projects and shared from our hearts with each other and much of it is too personal to share with anyone, BUT I do highly encourage you to buy this kit and take the time to connect with your pre-teen/teen.  If you can't get away then just do a spa night at home.  Pop some popcorn, get out some nail polish and start listening to the CD's and working on the projects together. Wonderful bonging time that will be a memory for both of you.

Now, that we've finished I feel so much closer to her and like we've developed and an even closer bond.  I hope to have many more girl getaways with her for the rest of our lives.  These precious moments will last forever in my heart and mind.  Now, Kevin and Kylan are thinking about doing the same thing and using the Passport to Purity Getaway Kit for a guys night away.

Notice the play doh, that's one of the projects and they include a detailed checklist so you don't forget anything on your special weekend!

This was the Too Close for Too Long project

Spending a little time together and you still rub off on each other

Spending a lot of time together and becoming exclusive and you can risk destroying each other. This was a great example!
