No amount is considered too small. Any size gift is valued!
As a parent, have you ever wondered how to protect your family from everything in society that seems to undermine their innocence? If you're a teen or young adult, have you ever wondered about the difference between love and lust, and how to find true love in a world that only seems to offer the counterfeit? Then don't miss PURIFIED! These questions will be answered on Feb. 5th from 6-8pm at Our Lady of Victory Church in State College, PA by world renown chastity speaker: Jason Evert. Get straight answers to tough questions about God's plan for human love. Don't wait! Tickets are selling fast!
Purified brings parents and teens (13+) together to discover God’s plan for love and opens up an opportunity for them to continue the discussion about this important topic at home, in a healthy and easy way with resources that work. The event includes a new version of Jason’s renowned talk Love or Lust, where he mixes humor with down-to-earth practicality that removes any awkwardness, making the difficult conversations about love much easier. Your family will leave with an understanding of the good news of chastity, a healthy sense of self-worth, and the ability, if needed, to start again.
