My new friend, Alethia Patterson, had a great question: “Is there a facebook page where we, as teen girls in the body of Christ can encourage each other in purity?” I really wasn’t sure about it, but I asked around and couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for. Alethia had just studied the “Pure on Purpose” series in her girls’ class in her local church, so we named the page “Pure on Purpose” after the girls’ series available on this website. I added my friend, Shelby Vega, a sophomore at Faulkner University, as administrator. Shelby is devoted to the Lord, is a student of the Word, and is eager to use her influence to help others know the Gospel.
I’m excited, already, about this girls’ group. I’m seeing stuff about modesty and Bible study tips and morality. I’m seeing girls who are teaching and girls who are learning. I hope, if you are a pre-teen, teen, or even twenty-something woman of God, you will check it out. I believe it could be a tool for maintaining holiness in your life. I know you could make a difference in other lives through this page. So many girls are using facebook for interaction that is counterproductive to godly living. I’m very thankful for Alethia and Shelby and the girls who are making the most of this social network. One day we will be face to face with the Lord and the books will be opened, as it were…the Book of Life (Rev. 3:5), The Book that will judge us (John 12:48), and the Book of our Deeds (II Cor. 5:10).We will give an account of our use of facebook when we Face THE Book. Let’s use this medium for His glory!
