Show Notes

Carson Blair, a former player for the Boston Red Sox, navigated many awkward locker room conversations about why he was saving himself for marriage. He had no way of knowing that his future wife, Angela, was also navigating similar conversations on a dating show! Now happily married, Carson and Angela describe their journeys towards purity despite the pressure from today’s culture. They discuss myths about sex with Karl and Filip, and highlight how grace factors in to purity as a practice.
