“It is encouraging to see a young woman who is devoted to purity and to reaching out to teenaged girls. In Eyes Wide Open, Brienne hits the issue of emotional bonds and promiscuity dead on by addressing the importance of guarding one’s heart and how easy it is not to. She offers guidance and wise advice to avoid common traps and live in emotional as well as physical purity before God and man.”
Ron Luce
President & Founder of Teen Mania Ministries

“As one who has worked with high school and college aged students for the past 27 years, I can tell you of the devastating effects of guy/girl relationships done poorly. In “Eyes Wide Open” Brienne Murk offers a fresh perspective regarding personal purity and it’s effects on those relationships. Her discussion is firmly grounded in the Scriptures, peppered with useful anecdotes, and offers very practical suggestions for guarding one’s heart. Her book and her message will provoke young people to seriously consider their own practice of personal purity.”
Tim Arens, Ed.D. Dean of Students, Moody Bible Institute.

“Relatable and moving…Eyes Wide Open expands the scope of purity to the common hearbreak experienced by all teenagers. While convicting, the message is also encouraging and uplifting, leaving the reader prepared to honor God and excited about the blessings it will bring.”

“Emotional purity is an issue that I, and many of my friends, face today. This book opened my eyes to the consequences of an unguarded heart and motivated me to act and think in a way that would be pleasing to God.”

“There are a lot of good dating and purity books out there, but most of them are clearly aimed at one facet of relationships – finding the right person, choosing purity, why to be pure, or how to stay pure. Brienne Murk writes about the total package and provides a practical guide to living out purity in relationships.”
Alyse Pritchard, age 23

“Eyes Wide Open is definitely an eye-opener. Brienne takes guarding your heart to a higher level and gives positive building blocks to lay the foundation for saving many future broken hearts. Where was this book when I was in high school?!”

“I met Brienne Murk at a writer’s conference and immediately I recognized that she is a woman of the new millennium to whom other young women will look as a role model. She is bright, charming, and fun-loving. A fresh voice for her generation. A godly example for her contemporaries. Brienne addresses the issues of relationships, sex and purity that confront today’s tweens and teens. Using candid examples from her own effort to live a young adulthood with no regrets, Brienne translates Bible-based truths into the language of real life. Every young adult who is, in Brienne’s words “sick and tired of relationships that lead to pain and disappointment” will find truth in her message.”
Julie-Allyson Ieron, conference speaker and author of 23 books including Staying True in a World of Lies and the Sisters In Faith Bible Study Series

“I am amazed by the honesty and impressed by the truth Brienne Murk brings to the table concerning a topic rarely thought about, talked about, or cared about. Eyes Wide Open reminds us of the importance of emotional purity and of keeping our thoughts pointed toward an even greater tie.”
Eva Marie Everson,
Co-Author Sex, Lies, and the Media; and Sex, Lies, and High School

“I have known Brienne since she was a small child and she has always had a heart for God. She demonstrates wisdom and judgment well beyond her years and is the kind of role model our young people so desperately need today. Her message can change the hearts and the moral standards of this needy generation of youth.”
