Glad you found us! This site has one objective: to help you win the spiritual battle for purity, in every sense of the word. Society encourages us to throw away our virtue; the message sent out by the media is: "everyone's doing it!" We are here to prove that statement wrong! Come in, read some encouraging testimonies, chat with others who strive to remain pure, and reaffirm your belief that purity, sexual and otherwise, is not only possible, but totally worth it!

Praise for A and V

Armed and Virtuous is more than just a website, it's a message . . . a battle plan for surviving youth with your purity intact.  Here's what people are saying about Armed and Virtuous:  A Girl's Plan for Winning the Purity Battle:

April, thank you for sharing with Crossroads Assembly "Armed and Virtuous." April, your biblically balanced message on sexual purity and purification is relevant for church-it is a much needed prophetic word. Parents and their children are/were well-informed and instructed effectively in the ways of righteousness. You helped my congregation to understand God-ordained boundaries for human sexual behavior. Your presentation was well done! I hope other Pastors, and youth pastors will consider having a seminar. They and their congregations will be enriched. Thank you.  

-J. Michael Brown, Senior Pastor at Crossroads Assembly, Asheville, NC

On behalf of all of us at Central Baptist Student Ministry I would like to say YOU ROCK! Thank you so much for all that you have taught our girls and the way you have equipped them to be successful in their lives as young women. We are looking forward to Worth The Wait in October!

-Scott Hawk, Youth Minister at Central Baptist Church, Buna

We just wanted to thank you for your time on Sunday nights and your message was great!  It really touched me on my future and my decisions!  Thanks!

This lesson has saved me from so much grief. If not for this, I would have thrown caution to the wind. I didn’t really understand why you should wait until Mrs. April wrote this and shared it with us. Now I know.

These things are something I wish I would have known in junior high.

As girls we watched Cinderella when were little and now all these other "happily ever after" stories and sooner or later we find out or we THINK we find out that they never come true or can never happen to us or in real life at all. But with you and your marriage as an example and the beautiful picture you have painted for me and the rest of the world, you have [shown] us that fairy tales and our happy endings really can come true…with God. I love you and thank you for being the great Godly woman that you are.

 All of these devotionals are inspiring for all of us...I highly recommend "Armed and Virtuous"

Thank you, April, for Armed and Virtuous. I have begun to share it with others up here in New York...thankful for you.

Thank you, Lord for the support of such an amazing cause, and thank you again and again, April for your heart for these girls and for being obedient to the Holy Spirit to follow through and be a vessel for God’s kingdom!  May God bless you one hundred fold!  Love you, my sister in Christ!

Your website is wonderful! I think it is definitely a needed ministry for young girls.
