We’d grown up in the church. We’d heard about purity. But it seemed to miss the mark. We knew that God’s good design for sexuality had to be about more than the physical standards of abstinence and virginity. So we set out to read God’s Word and reclaim what purity actually means for our lives.
1 : (Verb) Passionately pursuing the heart of God with your whole life
2: (Noun) A lifestyle; so much more than the physical
Our middle school and high school retreats are designed with activities to fit into overnight or one-day formats. Retreats are complete with workbooks and application for young women to walk away with biblical truths and a memorable experience.
From Father-daughter banquets to youth retreats and women’s conferences, Across My Heart Ministries provides a team of experienced speakers on the topics of purity, womanhood and sexuality.
COMMUNITY BIBLE STUDY
How can a young woman keep her way pure? By living according to His Word. So we are committed to studying His Word with our community through online Scripture Challenges and Scripture memorization! Join one of our online groups today!
We use this little corner of the blogging sphere to write about a grander vision for sexuality, a holistic purity that encompasses our whole self by passionately pursuing God with everything we have.
Writing His Word across our hearts is the only way it’s going to be lived out in our lives.

Maybe helping raise my sister and I kept her young. Or maybe I was just afraid of losing her. But I always told her she wasn’t allowed to call herself old until she turned 80. That was the rule. Now that she’s reached that milestone, I realize that the number 80 doesn’t just represent her “old” age. It represents her legacy. She has spent the last 80 years living lessons, and I’ve spent my lifetime learning them.
I keep seeing these social media posts that talk about resting and spending more time with loved ones and spending time “being”. While this may be an opportunity for some, it can’t be generalized to everyone. Health care workers are working insane hours, as well as employees at restaurants trying to adapt to take out and grocery stores using safe practices. For me as a senior in college, this time of life has not proven to be slower.
With breaking news every hour, we can choose to be defined by this world’s uncontrollable circumstances, or we can choose to be intentional about the things we can control. Here are a few things I’ve identified for our little family…
