   schema:description ""A hilarious, touching, and relatable memoir about religion, sex, and one woman's search for her own personal savior--in all its various forms. Picked on by jocks and obsessed with her own ugliness, young Dawn Goodwin fantasizes all day about having sex, but is hard-wired with fundamentalist warnings about how disappointed her Future Husband will be. Sunday school teachers, unfortunately, did not address brimming self-hatred or her compulsion to write reams of kinky stories about horny Minotaurs. The Bible had no fine print explaining how many points you lose for going to second base. And will dry humping reduce the chances of going to hell by up to 35 percent? Now, in Until He Comes, she shares her personal and sometimes raunchy journey navigating the murky waters of religion and sexuality--and the struggle to reconcile two unspoken Christian traditions: doing everything-but-sex behind closed doors and being everything-but-yourself out in the open. With the laugh-out-loud humor of such bestselling authors as Jen Lancaster and Laurie Notaro, Goodwin presents not just a tortured tightrope walk through fundamentalism but also provides a powerful reflection of the core issues facing young women: low self-esteem, depression, eating disorders, sex (and almost-sex), and hypocritical messages of perfection"--"@en ;
