Okay, I'm not talking about anything profound that I've written.  (Yeah, I know... some of you are saying to yourself, "I really didn't think the headline was about something you'd written, Julie." I receive that.  In the best sort of way).

The headline actually refers to the below link to a post that is authentically honest about where purity rings and purity pledges have maybe missed the mark.

Have churches and church leaders fallen short (albeit not intentionally) of giving teens and young people an accurate picture of God's heart?

Whether you have sons or daughters, or even if you have no kids at all, I highly encourage you to read it.   And honestly, I think it will particularly resonate with any woman who has waited... and is still waiting... for a man with whom she can share her life.

I Don't Wait Anymore by Grace for the Road.

Worth the read, people.  Worth the read.

    "And honestly, I think it will particularly resonate with any woman who has waited… and is still waiting… for a man with whom she can share her life."

    ...or any man who has waited... and is still waiting...

    All I know is that there are no answers to this, and it doesn't get any easier as you get older. It's not a matter of living, but survival.

    Interesting. I've also read that recent-ish research has found that amongst teens who make these kinds of purity pledges, the time when they become sexually active is delayed by an average of just 18 months compared to teens who haven't made pledges; and that the teens who make the purity pledges are significantly MORE likely to catch sexually transmitted diseases and to have accidental pregnancies and abortions! (Presumably because if you're convinced you won't have sex, you don't plan ahead for it.) Make of that what you will, but it's an eye-opening fact and worth thinking about.
