Sadie Robertson Huff Encourages Young People To Practice Purity: ‘It Really Is Worth It’

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a recent episode of her WHOA, THAT’S GOOD podcast, Sadie Robertson Huff discussed purity and waiting until marriage, something she and her husband Christian practiced before they got married. 

“It really is worth it,” she explained. “I would just encourage you: Anytime you open that before it’s meant to be open, there tends to be shame, guilt, insecurity, self-doubt, all this stuff. But within marriage, we found that to be a beautiful gift. And so it’s definitely, definitely worth the wait. And you’ll see why it’s intended for marriage. It’s intended for two becoming one.”

She continued, “Christian and I said all the time, ‘We want your plan, God, not our own. We want to see your planning come to life in our relationship.’ And part of that was waiting to have sex until we were married. So yes, it feels like a huge deal. And you’re like, ‘Oh, I just want to get married. I just want to get married.’ But just wait, friends.”

While Huff encouraged her listeners to practice celibacy before marriage, she also had a message of forgiveness and grace for those who have fallen short of that goal.

“If you’ve already had sex before, you’re not alone,” Huff shared. “We had both had pasts before we met each other that were not totally pure. [But] then meeting each other, we decided we wanted to pursue purity together. And so we did.”

Huff frequently tackles topics like this on her podcast, which recently won a K-Love Award for Podcast of the Year. 

Movieguide® previously reported on an episode of WHOA, THAT’S GOOD:

Sadie Robertson Huff recently talked to Hillsong Young & Free singer-songwriter Aodhan King on an episode of her podcast about how young people should handle changes in their lives. 

Huff mentioned that many of her listeners are high school and college students, and they are in “stretching seasons” where they are attempting to figure out who they are and what they want. 

“It’s uncomfortable, and it hurts, and it’s hard sometimes, but it’s getting you to your maximum potential. And that’s why, [for] athletes, it’s before you go on a race that you’re going to stand on the sidelines and you’re going to really stretch it out, and it might hurt, it might be uncomfortable, but that’s going to get you to your best potential,” Huff shared.

“A lot of times, it’s before you hit your stride that you have to stretch,” she continued. 

“And you know, of course, right when you move, it’s going to take you a while to reach your stride.” 

King said that his “stretching season” strengthened his faith in God.

“Being able to be like, ‘Alright, I actually don’t know what’s going to happen. God, provide the right people.’ And it sounds cliche, but I think when you’re in that place, God really does show up with people,” he explained. 

Both Huff and King encouraged their listeners to try new things and meet new people, “trusting that God’s going to put the right people around you.”
