Young people are constantly surrounded by messages promoting a "hook-up culture" grounded in the pursuit of instant gratification. Social media and television are slowly distorting the meaning of love and commitment. Our culture is unashamed to talk about difficult topics; therefore, parents must engage in challenging conversations with their children.
There is no better time than now to inspire virtue and integrity in the lives of young men and women! At the Abstinence Clearinghouse, we believe parents must be equipped to educate their children in matters of sexual integrity.
For this reason, the Abstinence Clearinghouse has created parent-teen events such as the Knight to Remember for mothers and sons ages 12-18 and the Purity Ball for fathers and daughters ages 12-18.
Knight to Remember encourages young men to reject passivity, accept responsibility and lead courageously to the glory of God. Knight to Remember attendees learn that purity is more than abstaining from sex until marriage. Rather, purity is being aware of what you watch and listen to, as well as keeping your heart and mind free from things that are not Christ-like.
For some individuals, the beauty of grace is offered at these events for the first time. Young men who may have felt as though they cannot escape past wrongs and parents who have experienced marital trials are offered hope and an opportunity for reconciliation. We are all broken, but God in His great mercy redeemed us by His grace (Ephesians 2:4-5). We pray this message is clearly communicated at each Knight to Remember event.
The Knight to Remember acts as an opportunity to empower young men to pursue sexual integrity and offers parents the resources needed to have genuine conversations with their children about relationships, setting boundaries, technology and more.
Empower young men in your community to embrace a virtuous life! Host a Knight to Remember in your area today!
"The Knight to Remember was a wonderful evening for my son to be uniquely challenged in the area of purity. The event empowered me as a mother to have conversations about sexual integrity, heart issues, grace and forgiveness with my son. Thank you for hosting a great mother-son date night encouraging us to be a clean, ready vessel for the Father's use." - KIM, Knight to Remember Attendee
"With so many voices trying to influence the minds of our children, my husband and I recognize that as parents we need to take a more active part in our children's lives than ever before. As a mother, I want my son to grow up to be a strong, independent, respectful leader in society who treats women with honor and dignity. While attending Knight to Remember I saw a side of my son that I hadn't seen before. We got dressed up and enjoyed a fun evening together. By taking the time out of our busy lives to attend the Purity Ball and Knight to Remember, my husband and I are telling our kids that they matter, that they are important to us and that we truly do believe what we are teaching them." -ALETA, Knight to Remember Attendee
