Internationally recognized speaker Pam Stenzel delivered a public lecture titled “Chastity: The Foundation for Building Strong Families and a Culture of Life” at Christendom College on October 5. Tearing through society’s critical views of pregnancy and abstinence before marriage, Stenzel encouraged the student body to become the leaders who can reverse this culture of death and bring about a new culture of life.

Stenzel, who is regarded as one of the country’s most established lecturers on chastity, spoke with candor and insight about today’s culture and its rejection of Catholic teachings on abstinence before marriage. To begin her talk, Stenzel explained the problems inherent in today’s political perception of chastity, revealing the negative view that pervades the current presidential administration.

Stenzel is the founder of Enlighten Communications, Inc., and is the author of the internationally used public school curricula “Abstinence by Choice” and “Building Healthy Relationships.” Winner of multiple awards for her videos on chastity, Stenzel speaks to over 500,000 people every year, and is a frequent guest on Fox News and ABC.
