Glad you found us! This site has one objective: to help you win the spiritual battle for purity, in every sense of the word. Society encourages us to throw away our virtue; the message sent out by the media is: "everyone's doing it!" We are here to prove that statement wrong! Come in, read some encouraging testimonies, chat with others who strive to remain pure, and reaffirm your belief that purity, sexual and otherwise, is not only possible, but totally worth it!

Think on These Things: Dannah Gresh's TED Talk
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things (NIV).
I'm sure that many of you know Dannah Gresh. She is a leading author and speaker about abstinence, modesty, and purity. We've actually recommend several of her books on our resources page here at A&V.
On March 16, Dannah was invited by the TED Talk series to give a speech in defense of virginity to an audience of 900 Penn. State students. We're sharing the video of her nine minute speech with you today:
TED is a globally recognized, by-invitation-only think tank of speeches used by educators and students, billed as "ideas worth spreading." It is very exciting that the issue of abstinence has reached this platform!
We're sharing this video with you today, not only for the great argument she puts forward regarding tolerance of virginity, but also in the hope that you will spread it as well. If this video gets enough traffic, then it will be placed on the main TED website, and the message of abstinence will receive global attention! So, post this to your facebook page, share it on your blog, and help out a great cause.
Enjoy, and have a blessed weekend!
