OTHER TOOLS AND LINKS

There is no silver bullet, bubble, formula or otherwise fail-proof method for guarding ourselves or our loved ones from the challenges of navigating a sexualized, digital age. Rather than inciting fear, this should help us all breathe. Whether you are a parent, mentor, or leader looking for practical help to protect and teach your kids, or you are an individual looking for ways to walk in wisdom and accountability, here are some outside resources others in our community have found helpful that you may find helpful as well! (Tools and links listed below do not necessarily constitute an endorsement by pureHOPE)

It is our firm belief that all the practical tools in the world are no substitute for the real work of understanding God’s story of sex and building healthy relationships. We will always encourage you to start right here and remember that Jesus is our Pure Hope. You can also access any of our resources to help you on your journey:
