Carrie Saum: Untangling the Effects of the Purity Culture on Identity, Self-Worth, Love, and Life

Carrie Saum: Untangling the Effects of the Purity Culture on Identity, Self-Worth, Love, and Life

Carrie Saum, like so many of us, is more than just any one thing, any one label. She’s an author, a recipe creator, a cultivator of community for her project, Our Stable Table. She’s also a mom, a wife, and a survivor of the Purity Movement that swept the nation decades ago, which unfortunately, is still going strong in many circles. 

Carrie takes us right to the heart of the matter, her identity as a fellow “poster child” in the church, leading the way in the Purity Culture amongst her friends and community. From the body image issues, to the tangled web of lust and responsibility and the rape culture prevalent in so many Christian circles, we dive right into the conversations we’ve so desperately craved for all these years. 

You can connect with Carrie at Our Stable Tableand read her work about the Purity Culture on Ravishly.
