Why we talk about purity

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. Now we are passionate about coming alongside churches and helping young women understand what saving sex for marriage, body image and womanhood has to do with the gospel.

PU-RI-TY

1 : (Verb) Passionately pursuing the heart of God with your whole life

What we’re talking about…

Writing His Word across our hearts is the only way it’s going to be lived out in our lives.

Letting Go of Love? How My Broken Engagement Redeemed My Perspective on Love

I didn’t want to be angry at my ex. I didn’t want to be angry at myself. I didn’t want to view our time together as wasted time, or lessons learned, or any other classic view people take when a relationship dies. I wanted a renewed vision of the time we had spent together. I wanted God to take my feeble natural perspective on things and help me see what He saw, and if it wasn’t asking too much, I still wanted a way to be able to show my ex I cared.

Lessons I Learned After a Breakup

Relationships have a way of showing our weakness. If I had not been in a relationship, there are so many things I wouldn’t have learned about myself. And in this relationship, there were so many good times. At first it was hard to know what to do with the memories. But as I move farther away from the relationship, I am able to think back on those memories and recognize that they were God’s grace to me at that time. I am beginning to recognize God’s hand in every good moment and every hard moment.  

Communal Sex???? What is This Book Talking about…

I believe we need to bring loving and faithful accountability back into the church. And it starts with ourselves. It starts with being willing to take a step of vulnerability towards the members of our church family instead of away. And I will be the first to admit I am not good at being vulnerable. It’s something that does not come naturally to me, and I find it hard and painful. But in addition to being those things, it is also necessary for healing, reconciliation, and sanctification.

Stop Calling Me Beautiful… Really [Book Review]

I’ve heard so many speakers designed to hype me up about who I am and how that should draw me close to God as a result. You’re a princess, they’ll say. You’re a queen; God made you perfect; He made you beautiful, and so on. That’s all well and good until suddenly…I’m faced with my own sin and struggles. Sure, God did make me beautiful. He did make me perfect…but then I was born into sin, and I let “ugly” things in (Psalm 51:5). So a clichéd phrase about my being flawless does not help me when I look in the mirror, or when I’ve disappointed a friend who comes to me with hurt feelings from an unhealthy moment I didn’t speak from a place of love.
