Funny story, I thought you were a singer as well... Just for clarity, Brelyn Bowman is not a singer, but her husband is. Brelyn Bowman is an author and speaker whose defining moment in her career came about when she revealed to her father and the world that she was still a virgin on her wedding day. Providing a certificate to how him The news broke the internet. Since then Brelyn has been writing books and speaking often, and lucky for us I had the pleasure of speaking with her about more than just purity, but yeah that too. Read on.
It’s funny, when you hear about a woman being a virgin, it’s often thought of being easy or easier than a guy being a virgin, but that’s not always the case. Can you tell us a little about why you waited and what were some practical things you did to refrain from sex?
Well, why I waited first was the word of the God that my parents put in me at a young age. I didn’t know everything that would come with it of course. Being 13 years old you’re a little naïve to the devils devices and how clever the devil can be sometimes. We sometimes underestimate him, yeah he is defeated soul but he still knows certain things about what we like and different desires of girls and guys that will come. Its like “well where did this man come from?” he was just across the street and now that I’m feeling lonely and I want somebody who smells good and I’m hungry the devils like “I’mma send you somebody right now that is hungry, and he smells good, and he looks good. So really it’s the word of God that kept me throughout the years and the commitment to my father was important to me as well because the covering of him and what he has taught me and the honor I had for him kept me in a place where I thought of him being disappointed and I thought of God being disappointed in me. That’s what has really kept me in those tough moments. And sometimes we don’t always know God like we should so having someone on the earth who is a representative of Christ in the earth will keep us standing strong and will keep our honor in check.
