Growing up as a conservative Christian, Brenda Marie Davies heard a consistent message— save yourself for marriage—that instilled in her guilt and fear about sex. But after moving to Los Angeles at nineteen and finding herself suddenly exposed to a world far outside her comfort zone, she was forced to wrestle with the power and problem of Christian purity culture. 

On Her Knees chronicles Davies’s spiritual journey over the course of a decade in LA, through marriage, divorce, unlikely friendship, and sexual adventure. Through it all, she refused to abandon her faith, and instead began tearing down the false idol of purity that she had been taught to worship. 

Told with raw honesty, sans obligatory shame, this is a story for anyone who wonders if it’s possible to love God and not be afraid of sex, with all its blurry lines and shades of grey.
