Promise of Purity
Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to myself, my family, my friends, my future husband, and above all else to God to be abstinent from this day until the day I marry my husband.
On Wednesday, June 6, the families of the Sheridan House residential girls beamed with pride as each girl boldly chose to make a promise of sexual purity. Led by behavioral specialist, Julianna Guevara, the ceremony included her personal testimony of purity, Scripture readings and pledge promises by the girls. “When I was in high school, I had the privilege of going through this very program and making this very same promise of abstinence. It was the best decision I made as a young lady. I am so proud of each and every girl in our program for taking this so seriously and choosing to make this promise today.”
After each girl signed the covenant, their parent/s had the privilege of placing the purity ring on their daughter’s finger. It was such a beautiful moment! Parents hugged their daughters. Everyone smiled. Pictures were taken. “I love you” and “I’m so proud of you” was heard multiple times across the room. There is no doubt this was the beginning of an incredible life journey for each and every girl.
*We would like to extend special thanks to the donors who underwrote each girl’s purity ring. Because of you, they will have this beautiful reminder of their purity promise.
