Sometimes, It’s Hard To Get Motivated…

Our church does a program based on a nationwide curriculum called “True Love Waits.” It’s what newspapers and government entities call an “abstinence-based program.” My own daughters have participated, and over 200 students over the years have done so since we instituted the program in the last decade.

It’s meaningful, too. To parents and teens. I’ve been there. I know.

And, then, you get news like this: Study Casts Doubt On Virginity Pledges.

Sure, there were studies done five years ago showed that teens who took the pledge may have waited longer before they lost their virginity, but in reality, the pledge only made a difference of 1 in 10 kids compared to those that didn’t take a pledge.

Newest study shows there’s no difference at all now.
