Open Letter from a Dad

February 7, 2014

In response to the recent announcement of the upcoming webinar, "Raising Kids to be Sexually Pure in College," with Dannah Gresh (Pure Freedom Ministries), a dad of a young man who is currently considering Cedarville University sent us a beautiful open letter. He gave permission to share his comments on Parent Prep.

An open note to parents of Christian young women:

I want to assure you, there are young men who are making Ps. 37:4 a reality in their lives.

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”  As our son has learned this alignment of his heart to HIS heart, he makes his way through the temptations and the world’s pressures.

We have raised our young man, a possible future student at Cedarville, to be pure, to respect a woman, and to hold his heart and love for ‘courtship.’ The struggles are normal.  With the power of the verses that follow Ps. 37:4 (‘commit,’ ‘trust,’ ‘be still,’ ‘wait patiently’), there is victory and an excitement for God’s ultimate Best.

Thank you for preparing your daughter in the same way.  We are praying for your daughter.

God bless, protect and lead.

A young man’s father
