Darcy’s three-part series of posts on courtship and “Emotional Purity” over at her blog Darcy’s Heart Stirrings have been making me think a lot over the last couple weeks. Her thoughts have caused quite a stir in the conservative home-school alumni set – if you were ever part of the courtship/home-school culture, you’ll know that this one is a hot topic and just about everyone has an opinion on it. Whether or not you agree with Darcy’s conclusions entirely, she has some good food for thought.

It’s a topic I’m rather passionate about myself, as some of my closest friends well know. I’ve been trying to formulate my thoughts into a post for the last week, but it’s still tumbling around in my head. In the meantime, hop on over to Darcy’s blog and let me know what you think.
