A March 19, 2009 AP News article reported that in 2007, 40% of all U.S. births were to unwed mothers. Over 3/4 of those births were to women 20 and over. In case you haven’t noticed, the stigma that used to exist about being unmarried and pregnant has virtually disappeared in American society.

As a Christian, I believe that the Bible is God’s Word and tells us how we should live. I want to help my children maintain their purity as they enter their teenage years and on into adulthood. I do not think that lowering of the culture’s standards in any way changes God’s standards of purity.

I had never heard of Generations of Virtue until I received their Beautifully Made books to review. Thankfully, there are Christians who have a burden for helping young people maintain their purity.

Generations of Virtue is dedicated to providing books, music, movies, audio books, purity rings and purity jewelry that will equip parents, teens and children to mature and understand how to combat the cultural pressure that tries to squeeze them into the world’s unrighteous mold.

This ministry is the response to parents who are crying out for help while preparing their children to combat the negative influences, appalling opinions, perverse ideologies, and deteriorating morals present in our culture. God is raising up a standard of purity to face our culture’s crumbling values and its opposition to His Word. It is our children–if we prepare them–who will lead the charge in this mandate. It is imperative that we, the parents, equip and prepare our children for the battle ahead so that they can boldly face this onslaught from the enemy. We need to train our children to be the leaders who lift up a banner of purity for their generation.

Generations of Virtue seeks to be your trusted resource to help you and your family grow in purity of heart, purity of mind, and purity of body.

Beautifully Made is a series of books that celebrate becoming a woman.

I received the Beautifully Made books to review with my daughter who just turned 9. My first thought upon receiving the books was that she was too young to need to know this information yet. That was naive of me. Though it doesn’t seem possible, she will be reaching puberty in the next couple of years and needs to know something of what to expect. The first two books are written to girls, while the third book is for mothers. (Of course the mother should pre-read both of them before giving them to her daughter.) The books provide practical information about puberty in girls in a very unembarrassing, matter of fact way. One thing that I greatly appreciated is that these books only discuss the changes in girls’ bodies. There is not detailed information about reproduction or male anatomy.

In addition to the helpful information is the positive portrayal of womanhood. There is no mention of this being a “curse” or something to be dreaded, but a celebration of how God created our bodies to function. It is a wonderful blessing to be a woman! We need to rejoice in how He designed us.

The Beautifully Made series is available from the Generations of Virtue website for $18.99.

  1. Generations of Virtue has so many wonderful products available. My oldest (15) loves their purity rings, and I'm just excited about their booth at convention each year (there's so much to look at)!
