God says that our bodies are His temple and we should present them as living sacrifices, pleasing and holy acceptable unto Christ. God envisions His Daughters and Sons from different parts of the world, making the commitment in their hearts to keep their bodies pure until marriage. Our loving Father saw us struggling in our sins, helpless and dying. Yet, He loved us so much that He provided a cure: Jesus. For those who believe, the blood of Jesus washes us clean, making us new and whole in Him. Often, when we turn away from God after He has shown His unconditional love to us and give His body away to others. We forget who it was that kept us safe and protected us all those times. We sometimes forget that it is because of Him that we are able to live. When we continuously give our bodies away, we get nothing in return. In the long run, we are losing out.
“God’s Gift to the World: Preservation of Virginity for Singles” empowers and encourages purity among teens and older adult singles to know that life is more than just waiting until sex for marriage. More importantly, God is calling us to a marriage to Him first and always. He wants to remain our first love even when we are married. He desires that we all seek intimate relationships with Him to learn His desires and ways. We are His design, created for His purpose, for His glory. So let us give Him what He wants from us: mind, soul, and body.
Airreia uniquely combines research, statistics, personal experiences, interviews of individuals, poetry, and scriptures to emphasize the importance of preserving virginity in a sex-saturated society. These are the strategies that Airreia used to help her find deliverance from premarital sex and experience restoration of purity through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

SAM P. (f eaturing Airreia Pierce & Bgizzle) - Preservation of Virginity
"God’s Gift to the World: Preservation of Virginity for Singles is an honest, insightful, passionately written story of one woman’s journey from childhood through young adulthood as she discovered the power of her sexuality and came to understand The Father’s will and design for men and women in sexual intimacy. Airreia shares personal insights about struggles common among teens; fear, emotional pain, rejection, and peer pressure. She openly shares her mistakes offering reflective advice for others; and her journey to wholeness as she encountered the love of Jesus Christ with full redemption and the forgiveness of sins.
This book is very beneficial to young women, offering guidance and mentoring on their journey to adulthood. They will be able to identify with Airreia and prayerfully gain wisdom from her mistakes. They will hopefully come to understand the love of God and His perfect will for His daughters in love, marriage and intimacy with God and their husband’s. For some, they may come to understand God’s grace, forgiveness and restorative power through faith in Jesus Christ. This is a must read for young women who desire to have God’s best."
"God wants you to discover Him, perceive Him, see Him, and experience Him through relationship with Him. He wants you to know that you can trust Him. His character is love, kindness, mercy, faithfulness; He only does what is right and just. Thus says the LORD: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight," says the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:23-24 NKJV)
The book written by Mrs. Airreia Pierce displays a great read on why singles, teens and older adults should keep their eyes on the prize, which is God. Her book explains why we should walk with God and hold on to His unconditional love and unchanging hands. It helps with the battle of why you shouldn’t “sell yourself short” and shows that you have options in life. The book presents a sense of self-worth and individuals can come to recognize the significance and truth through her words which settles down within you. Some individuals may feel that it’s important to be in a relationship and pursue the feelings of love and the need of validation instead of seeking a quality relationship. God really does have a plan for every single person, even if it takes a while to see what it is."
"In her book God's Gift to the World: Preservation of Virginity for Singles, Airreia Pierce gives an honest and personal account of her journey to discovering the importance God places on the gift of virginity. She explores this topic from a Christian perspective with depth and a well-rounded point of view; including aspects of faith, family relationships, intimate relationships, and intrapersonal reflections. Her testimony is relatable, in some way, to every woman and/or girl in this society. You will have no choice but to feel connected as you join Airreia along the path of holiness that she allowed God to lead her down. It is an extremely relevant piece of work."
"When I first started reading “God’s Gift to the World: Preservation of Virginity for Singles,” it opened my eyes because for almost the first time in my life, I finally read a book that I could relate to. The experiences that she shared with the world through her book not only inspired me, but they helped me to grow as a person, and it was encouraging to my spirit. I feel that her book has truly been a blessing to me because it answered my questions of confusion on whether or not I should save myself for marriage. However, after I read the book, I was completely sure about my decision to wait until marriage for sex, and in fact, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in my entire life. All along, I had felt that I was alone and couldn’t talk about certain things that I had gone through in my life, but I can honestly say that this book has changed my life. I am so grateful that God spoke through her to write this book because I feel that it will open the eyes of many young females around the world. In today’s society, you don’t find many authors who will actually open up to the world, and express their testimony willingly, but God gave her the strength and courage to do just that. Another thing that stood out to me was the fact that she explained each concept and experience thoroughly. The poem “God’s Gift to the World,” uplifted me, and it gave me insight to some of my very own situations that I’m experiencing in my life.
I have to say that the chapter called “Girls to Women,” appealed to me greatly because she explained the deception process that the majority of young girls go through in life by falling for all the common lies that most young guys tell. In addition, she again shared her personal experience that she had with that issue as well. I myself have experienced going through deception, and soul ties. When I read the section about soul ties, my heart jumped. After reading about it, I realized that I had that problem with one of my ex-boyfriends in my past. That stronghold that she mentioned, and how it has a negative effect on a person, helped me to understand that I needed to come to reality, and talk to God about what was going on. I also realized how much prayer, and spending more alone time with God was vital to my life. Time and time again throughout my life I have struggled with insecurity. From the time I was a young teenager until now that I am a young woman, I have always felt that I would never amount to much of anything, and that I was ugly. When she shared that she felt the same way, it gave me encouragement to know that my older sister had gone through the same exact thing. To know that the Lord helped and delivered her from that issue encouraged me to know He can deliver me too.
In final consideration, once again I have to say that I am encouraged to continue to wait until marriage to have sex. I want to thank Airreia for being obedient, and allowing God to use work through her to write this book. I pray that it will continue to help and inspire every young female that opens this up and read it. I know that God will continue to work through her to write and publish many more books by sharing her testimony to the world. I love her very much, she is my big sister, and thank her for explaining how precious virginity is to all women from God as well as its importance."
