True Love Waits® challenges teenagers and college students to make a commitment to sexual abstinence until marriage. Created by LifeWay Christian Resources, True Love Waits® encourages moral purity by adhering to biblical principles. This youth-based international campaign utilizes positive peer pressure by encouraging those who make a commitment to refrain from pre-marital sex to challenge their peers to do the same. Rings in which the words on the face of the ring can be read forwards will leave an impression in the wax that reads backwards.
The Five Commitments of True Love Waits
- To God: Matthew 22:37 - "Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'"
- To Yourself: Matthew 22:39 - "And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
- To Family: Philippians 4:5 - "Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near."
- To Friends: John 15:13 - "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
- To Future Mate and Children: 2 Timothy 2:22 - "Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart."
MAKE THE TRUE LOVE WAITS PLEDGE:
"Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my friends, my future mate, and my future children to a lifetime of purity including sexual abstinence from this day until the day I enter a biblical marriage relationship."
The Story of the Signet Purity Ring
Young people today are surrounded by the temptation and the opportunity to commit sexual sin as never before. In an effort to protect their children from the physical, emotional and spiritual ramifications of participating in sexual activity outside of marriage, many parents have turned to a tangible representation of their child's commitment to remain chaste - the purity ring.
The Value of the Symbol
Sometimes parents choose sterling silver rings as the symbol of their child's sexual purity because such rings are less expensive than their gold counterparts. However, silver is softer than gold and will not stand up well under wear. We encourage parents to consider carefully what they choose as the symbol of one of the most precious things in their child's life. The choice of a gold ring conveys to a child the extremely high value that his parents place on purity and suggests to the young person the value of his commitment. And when the purity ring is made of gold, at the appropriate time it can be melted down and made into a wedding ring, or passed down to the child's children to continue the legacy of purity.
Sealing the Commitment
Our Signet Purity Rings are available in 10K and 14K gold, offering parents a high quality, durable, treasured symbol of their child's commitment to resist sexual temptation. And our ring package is unique in helping to make a stronger impression on a young person than do other rings of this type.
Included with our Signet Purity Ring is a card that describes how the signet ring has been used for centuries to seal a letter so that its contents would remain secure until the one for whom the letter was intended received it and opened it. Our ring package also contains a covenant card in the form of a letter to the young person's future spouse describing the commitment before God to remain sexually pure as a wedding gift. And within the package is sealing wax which is used, along with the ring, to seal the covenant card until the wedding day, at which time the young person gives the card to his spouse who breaks the seal. The ring, the description, the covenant card, and the wax work together in a unique way to create a strong memory which impresses the ring's wearer with the importance of his vow - a memory refreshed each time he glances at the special gold Signet Purity Ring on his finger.
When ordering your Signet Purity Ring remember that we make it specifically for your order. For this reason we rarely issue refunds. Be certain the ring you order is the one you want. The larger the finger size, the smaller the ring will look on that finger.
