Today was the craziest day for me. I had the opportunity to teach our young women about chastity. I had read the lesson and started preparing for this lesson early on, but the bottom line is that it is not easy to talk to young girls about sex and chastity. So at the last minute I just got nervous and I hope I got my message across. The lesson I had today was based on some excerpts from The Miracle of Forgiveness by Spencer W. Kimball. I just love how he wrote. He told it like it should be. I think these lessons are put in the church manuals because some parents these days sort of sugar coat the whole sex talk to teenagers. I quite frankly would have benefited from a lesson such as this one in my youth. My little Beehives call these lessons the "awkward" lessons. They sure do makes us all feel uncomfortable, but I think that it is good to open these girls' awareness of what they should do should they ever find themselves in a situation that will jeapordize their standards and sadly many of our youth will find themselves in very difficult circumstances. And even worse many of our youth will fall between the cracks. I fell through the cracks, and it is a miracle that I came back with such little knowledge and exposure to the church's standards. Someone must have been praying really hard for me while I went through my stage. Looking back at my life, I could have ended up in a really scary situation. I am just so glad I met Brad, and that I have the gospel back in my life. I used the following visual aides for my lesson, I thought they were kind of cute.
