Armed and Virtuous Southeast Texas Abstinence Ministry

Southeast Texas Abstinence Minsitry

Armed and Virtuous

We have increasingly been writing more about talking to teenagers about life, growing up, and about Biblical inspiration.

One of our challenges as Southeast Texas parents is conveying tough messages: drugs, abstinence, bullying.

For many of us, most of those messages will never be easy – but they’re of vital importance.

Let Southeast Texas abstinence ministry Armed and Virtuous assist you in talking to your child about abstinence:

Philippians 4:8     Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things (NIV).

The Lord has been opening doors and providing several opportunities for us to share the Armed and Virtuous/Armed and Valiant message lately!  I just wanted to give you a brief update of what’s been going on.

Last Spring we wereAbstinence Ministry Beaumont TX, abstinence Texas, Abstinence ministry Golden Triangle invited to LakeRidge Baptist Church in Lubbock, TX. We had a tremendous time sharing the plan of purity over the first weekend in April.  For the first time, we took an Armed and Virtuous “field trip!”  During one of the afternoon sessions on Saturday, the girls and I discussed some tips on dressing modestly, then we went to the mall and put together modest outfits!  It was lots of fun, and very useful.  (I enjoyed seeing how quickly they put their new information to good use, both in finding modest outfits, and in refusing the immodest ones!)  Way to go, ladies!


The guys, being video game connoisseurs, had a special session about video games.  They talked about ratings, not simply what they stood for, but why a game was given a specific rating.  They determined which games were acceptable for Christian young men to play, and which weren’t.  Afterwards, they put their new found information to good use by playing the games that were deemed appropriate.

Then, at the end of April, Armed and Virtuous ministries was given the opportunity to share with preteens for the first time!  We went to First Baptist Church, Silsbee, TX and led their “B.U.M.P.” conference.  It was a parent and preteen together event, and went off tremendously!  On Saturday afternoon, Jason took the preteens away and taught them how to “juggle,” while the parents and I spoke frankly about the issue of sexual pressure with young people today and strategies for overcoming temptation.  It was a joyful experience.

This May we shared the Armed and Virtuous message with the preteens at Central Baptist Church, Kirbyville, TX!  Session one, in which we discussed purity of heart, went really well!  We had both an attentive, and an interactive audience, because the preteens had several great questions to ask.  We look forward to sharing for the next several Wednesdays with this great group of preteens, and we’ll wind things up in June with Jason’s juggling act.

Throughout all these events commitments have been made to purity, young people have begun to put serious thought into their dreams and aspirations for the future, and steps have been put in place to guard their commitments.

So, there’s the latest with A&V!  We feel so blessed to have been given these opportunities to share, and we’re trusting God to provide more in the future.  If you would like Armed and Virtuous Ministries to speak to any age group at your church, feel free to contact us at:

Have a blessed week!

April Anderson Armed and Virtuous Abstinence Ministry


My name is April M. Anderson, and I’m just a girl with a story. God laid a burden on my heart to pray for my husband when I was in the sixth grade. I prayed and waited for him for six years, dated him for three, and we’ve been married for 15 years. By God’s grace, both my husband and I were virgins on our wedding day and we’ve been living out our “happily ever after” from that day on!

Armed and Virtous Abstinence Ministry encourages young Southeast Texas women to save themselves for the husbands God is preparing for them.
