Purity doesn't mean playing the game of How Far Is Too Far. A pure life is a full life-one that goes way beyond the ideas of dating, sex, and being a "good girl," and focuses instead on what it means to be your true, powerful self.
Purity can feel like a dirty word sometimes. After all, who wants to be told what not to do, how not to be, and who not to spend time with? Haven't we proven women are smart, strong, and able to make their own decisions? But the reality is, what we've always been taught about Christian purity isn't 100 percent true. The idea has been twisted over the years into a list of "don't" rules that have obscured the facts: that purity empowers you to become who you were made to be, and it's about a lot more than sex and dating.
Here's the real truth: God designed purity as a whole-life experience, where you have the choice to follow your heart and be true to yourself as long as you're also following his Word. With honest advice, real-life examples, and tools to navigate the temptations and frustrations you face every day (including dealing with those who don't respect your boundaries), Pure Love, Pure Life meets you where you are-wherever you are-to illustrate why living the pure life isn't as constricting as it sounds, and how it's worth the effort.
