The very best thing a mother can do is teach her children about God's law of Chastity. And then have her children pray and get a conviction of it spiritually. That is what happened with me. Youth need to know that petting, necking, making-out is not appropriate and will result in the loss of the Spirit plus future heart-ache, save yourself for your true love that to me is the difference between lust and love, love waits, it endures, it lasts forever...lust is the opposite it comes from satan and never lasts and only destroys...

God will give you the Grace to wait
by: Anonymous

I agree, and kids need to know, they CAN wait!!!

It is helpful to keep picturing what you want your wedding night to be like with the love of your life that you have waited for... (which you can still do even if you have already had sex, pray to God for a new beginning).
Placing God first may mean making sex wait, but in doing that, you put yourself first with God because you have protected your soul and given yourself a better chance at true happiness.

There are boys (and girls) out there willing to wait...I know I was one, and so was my now...husband...

The Bride Wore White, by Dannah Gresh is a good book about chastity...she talks about her mistake and regret and about healing and waiting...
God Bless

I should say
by: Anonymous

I should say, it was helpful for me to picture my wedding keep my goal and God in focus during times of temptation.
Temptation is there, esp. when you are in love...but I always kept in mind all the consequences of sex outside of marriage and I knew in my heart that what we would have if we did not wait...would not be as good as what we would have if we didn' know that in my heart helped us protect each other from going too far...

Plus, I knew I had met the love of my life.
I was protected, I think, by a fear of losing this incredible boy if we had sex!! We protected our love from that because we did not want to harm it...
God heals mistakes, but He can also protect us by our prayers from making them in the first place.
Now, sex was never ugly to me or "bad" it is Sacramental and a total gift of one to the express that in marriage is the only way it can be this total gift - and a total gift that can result in a child. It is wonderful in this context...I do not regret friends who did not wait do regret that they had sex before marriage even if they got to marry the man with whom they had sex.
