The leader had a girl come up and explained that virtue is like this gumball shiny, bright, colorful and whole....she told the young girl to just suck on it for a second and then take it out of her mouth to show everyone what happened from doing that. The gumball was not colorful or shiny anymore but dull...just like when you start to make out or kiss heavely with a boy. Next she had another girl come up...she told her to suck on it and take a bite out of the piece of gum, and then take it out of her mouth....again the leader explained the gumball was not colorful, shiny and now was not whole.....just like when you start to fondle and touch a boy or let a boy do these things to you that more and more your spirit and self esteem is taken away a little at a time. Then she had another girl come up she told her to chew the gumball completely and take it out of her mouth to show everyone...this was actually "going all the way" having sex before you are married. What examples of this gumball would thier "future" eternal husband chews? He would chews the gumball that was not touched, shiny, colorful bright and whole! They then handed out gumballs for a cute handout! I LOVE THIS ANALOGY!!!! I am greatful for this new value and know that Heavenly Father must know that our girls are extremely tempted everyday through Satan....I mean not only just with boys..but the same sex....like "I kissed a girl" by Katy Perry....ugg it makes me just sick that this is everywhere and starting to be accepted in society! I pray that I will have the strength, courage and the spirit with me to teach the girls that they CAN overcome this and wait to share this wondrous thing with thier eternal husband and know that they will be blessed if they save themselves for marriage.....it can be done!!
Happy Birthday Lydia (Understandblue)
