What is Abstinence?

Abstinence is the choice to refrain from all sexual activity until marriage. It is a positive lifestyle that emphasizes personal responsibility, healthy relationship skills, the ability to achieve goals, and so much more.

What is Abstinence Education?

The goal of abstinence education is to communicate to young people their value and worth as individuals. We want to help them identify their future goals and dreams and to reach them by maintaining healthy boundaries in every area of their lives.

Abstinence is the only 100% effective way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, unintended pregnancy, and the emotional consequences often associated with sex outside of marriage. As a result, it is the best and healthiest message to promote to teens and young adults.

Our school and church presentations, provide young people with the necessary tools they need to make choices that will carry them into healthy, satisfying and life-long relationships leaving no guilt or regret.

Our parent classes build on these basic principles while encouraging parents in their lifelong conversations with their teens on the topic of sexuality.
