At a very young age, [Tara Dawn Holland ] Christensen made a commitment to remain sexually pure until marriage. Her commitment stemmed from asking Christ to become Lord and Savior of her life when she was five years old.
"God says to be pure and to be abstinent until marriage, and I didn’t want to let Him down," she explained. "…It was also important for me not to let down my parents."
"…God was my reason for abstaining, but my parents were my motivation," Christensen added.
