Jordin Sparks to the VMAs: Promise Rings Rock!

Not only can Jordin Sparks sing, she's bold enough to stand up for what she believes in, even when she's in front of millions of viewers at the MTV Music Videos Awards. Throughout the program British host Russell Brand poked fun of the Jonas Brothers and their symbols of chastity, but that was until Sparks said this:

"I just have one thing to say about promise rings. It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody, guy or girl, wants to be a slut."

I would have worded the latter part a little differently but she gets major kudos for her fierceness.

Anyone else rock a promise ring? Sound off in the comments section.

I'll go first. I still rock my promise ring and it's because Jesus saved me. He's my strength in the face of temptation. God loves us all equally, and I just want to encourage everyone whether you've never had sex or you've been with countless partners that it's the love of Jesus that can transform your life.

If you read some of my previous posts you'll see that there are some amazing women doing great things for God like Crissy Moran who used to be a porn star. She's a beautiful example of a life transformed. Don't ever let anyone tell you that your past will keep you from the kingdom of God. When you put your trust in Jesus and accept His love, He sees you white as snow.

I call mine a purity ring, but same gist.
My father gave mine to me on my first "date." He took me out and showed me how a girl is supposed to be treated on a date.

Mine was a "daughter's ring." It had my birthstone in the middle and my parents' birthstones on either side. It reminded me of my special place in their lives and helped me stay faithful to the promises of chastity I made to them and to myself.

I still have it, but I took it off to make room for my engagement ring and wedding band.

I really admire anyone who wears a promise ring. Far too many young ppl are engaging in pre-marital sex. I commend those who have made a promise to themselves and their Creator. Kudos to Jordin!! :-)
