Letter From Rachel
I want to share with you my heart about the No Price Tag Conference. I know some of you have heard of NPT but have not been able to have your teens attend or you may have heard of it but don’t know what it was. I understand, that is why this year I want to share with you some insights into the conference.
The conferences started after I taught purity to our youth group in California and several years later a youth girl emailed me and said she chose to remain pure because of our purity conference. I was thrilled that she had listened! I realized I could help more teenagers on their walk of purity by holding fun, yet powerful conferences. I want more and more young people to know they can make it through this world and still remain pure! I am here to run along side them and encourage them as someone who has already walked in their shoes.
So many times we stand helpless against abortion, teen pregnancy, pornography and human trafficking. What can we really do about it? It seems overwhelming. But I realize through NPT I can prevent one more teen pregnancy, one more abortion, one more teen being trafficked, or one more prostitute. I can’t stop every abortion or every pregnancy, but I can stop some. I can make a difference in the lives of the teens that God sends to us each year. That is what NPT does-we make a difference and impact those God has given to us.
At the conference, I talk about purity from someone who waited until marriage. We have other speakers including Jessica Neely, pastor's daughter turned prostitute, and Damaris Guerra, pastor's daughter who became an un-wed mother. We try to have speakers the young people can look up to, but who aren't perfect-just forgiven.
We balance the heaviness of talking about purity with a Friday night spa night and a Saturday afternoon fashion show.
Thank you for allowing me to share about the NPT Conference. Please contact us with any questions that you have.
