Act:

  • The next time you’re with your friends and the conversation turns to sex, bring up what God says about it. Without being preachy, ask your friends how they feel about God’s instructions to save sex for marriage. Make sure that your conversation is holy and respectful, not rude or graphic.
  • Write a letter to your future spouse explaining how you plan to save your sexuality-from this moment forward-for him or her. Describe how your commitment to purity will be worth it. Talk about all the emotional turmoil you plan to save him or her by not introducing any (or any more) people into your sexual relationship. Then seal the letter in an envelope, address it to your “Future Spouse,” and put it in a place where you stash keepsakes. This will make a wonderful wedding gift for your future husband or wife.
