    Moriah Peters Talks “American Idol,” Saving First Kiss and Waiting for Your Holy Hunk

    Ladies, I have a really cool Caught Being Godly for you this week. It features singer/songwriter Moriah Peters (she’s married to For King & Country’s Joel Smallbone). I love her story and her desire to remain devoted to God and His Word, regardless of the pressures that her career path brought upon her.

    Moriah was a contestant on American Idol. Unfortunately—actually, fortunately—she didn’t get far. Instead, the show’s judges criticized her Christian values and her desire to save her first kiss until marriage. Their advice is reflective of many people in society today. Check out her testimony on I Am Second!

    There will be times in your life in which you will be faced with a choice that will make or break your career while compromising your faith. Will you do it?

    We recently read a post about saving your first kiss until marriage. I know some of you ladies find this difficult, but when you see the before-marriage and after-marriage clips, and the joy that Moriah shares with her audience, you’ll be motivated to follow through with your own vows of purity.

    Check out this second clip of Moriah at a show as she talks about her faith and her beliefs, and waiting for your “holy hunk.” Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments below!

    Saving your first kiss doesn’t make you a prude, no matter what some of your peers may say in criticism of your choice. And not dating until you’re ready to get married is a mature and smart way of approaching relationships. When Moriah met the judges of American Idol, their “worldly” advice went against everything that she stood for. And she wasn’t tempted to follow it. Instead, it made her feel uncomfortable and she recognized that it wasn’t reflective of God’s will.

    Similar examples may occur in your life also. You may meet people who encourage you to “have fun” and “date a few guys so you know what you want in life.” But ladies, you don’t have to kiss a bunch of guys or date them to know what you want. If you follow God’s will, He will lead the way.

    American Idol wasn’t the final plan for Peters, but being there was part of it. Only later did she realize that.

    And only later, when you’re married to the man you waited to kiss, you’ll realize it was all part of God’s plan. I pray that you have the strength to wait, not only to date, but to kiss your “holy hunk” when the Lord brings you two together in holy matrimony.

    Ladies, are you planning on saving your first kiss until your wedding day?
