Chastity: What are the limits?

I teach youth Sunday School in my ward.

And by youth, I mean teenagers. About 8 of ’em, between the ages of 13 and 17.

Tomorrow I will be teaching this lesson, How can I find answers to my own gospel questions? After introducing the topic, I plan on opening with the question, What are common questions people your age generally have about life, dating, religion, or God?

As I prepared my lesson this afternoon, I tried to anticipate questions they might shout out. I know when I was in high school, one question I thought a fair amount about was, when it comes to relationships, what are the limits? What is okay and what’s not okay? As I thought about what I might say if that comes up, I found this brilliant message. I especially like how it combines an answer to the (better) question with a call for the learner to counsel with the Lord about it.

About Anthony in Minneapolis

I'm a Mormon who lives in Minneapolis. I'm a father of two little kids, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, and someone who enjoys reading, running, and exploring ways to stay warm in Midwest winters! There are lots of things I love about being a Latter-day Saint, but I also enjoy learning from others how their faith informs and influences their lives. Whether you're a Catholic in California or a Baptist in Baltimore or nothing in particular, I hope we can get to know each other and share our beliefs and experiences to promote understanding and friendship. I also hope that the posts on Mormon in Minnesota will convey some insight into what it's like being a Latter-day Saint generally, and what it's like in Minnesota specifically.
