Sexual abstinence at a juvy home

Coach Powell visited a juvenile detention center today and asked for their "hardest cases." Some of the girls were pregnant or had delivered babies while at the center. All in all, his group had around 60 males and 20 females (sitting on opposite sides of the room, of course).

Coach Powell hit them with the questions from Girlfriends Diary #1 and Journal for Young Men #1. They were in tears by the end of the session. The process is life changing, and we want every teen in America to experience the transformation. Contact us at to be put on the mailing list. We'll let you know as soon as the books have been printed.

Teens get a lot of sex education but not a lot of sexual abstinence presented to them in a way that makes sense to them ("how can you hear without a preacher?"). The journals are a safe way for them to sort through all the emotions and questions they have. If it's done with an adult facilitator, the process is really powerful, but the journals can stand alone as well.
