Self-MASTERY

Masturbation is a topic that is highly sensitive, uncomfortable, and potentially embarrassing/ awkward.  Those things notwithstanding, I feel strongly enough about it that I created a short video to express my thoughts on the matter.  And let me reassure you that it is mature, tactful, and even appropriately and gently witty!

President Henry B. Eyring, or any of the LDS General Authorities, will never view this post.  But Justin Biebz and Jaden Smith remind me to “Never Say Never!”  So readers please know that if any apostle/ prophet/ Stake President/ Bishop/ employer/ long-lost cousin/WHOMEVER (!) ever did stumble (thanks Natasha B!) upon this video , I would not be uncomfortable.  In other words, IT’S CLEAN, YA’LL!  Check it stat:

and just a brief explanation of my outfit…

Recapture:

I don’t like this subject.

I am not a yucky girl.

I believe in agency.

I am fully aware that some will disagree with me.

I never intend to be preachy or judgmental.

But most importantly:

I strongly express that, whatever your religious beliefs/ life philosophies,

avoiding this type of behavior will bless your life!

Do not do anything else that arouses sexual feelings… in your own body.

Here is a landmark talk by Elder Boyd K. Packer on the matter:

(as it’s title explicates, the address was given for young men only,

but I feel comfortable including it since it is available on LDS.org)

I love how President Packer is not obscene,

but is still very direct and doesn’t hold back

(boldness, but not overbearance…)

To conclude this post, I wish to bear testimony that,

no matter your age, gender, religion, or beliefs

you will be happier if you keep your mind

and body free of this activity!

And ask the Master for help if you need it.

What a fantastic book/ movie! 

Will write more soon.

This one’s alright.

Most people think the first book is best,

but I actually quite like “Catching Fire” myself.

A mock trial is a rehearsed or imitation trial in which young people may gain experience about the the legal system.  This is one of the few usages of the word mock that does not connote unkindness or condescension; instead it simply means that a trial is simulated.

And [there were] people… in the attitude of mocking and pointing their fingers towards those who had come and were partaking of the fruit.

-1st Nephi 8:27*

Don’t go mocking

when you’re talking!

*This is an important scene from Lehi’s dream in the Book of Mormon.  It describes people making fun of those who decided to partake of the fruit of the tree of life.  Read an analysis of this glorious vision here.  And here is yet another explanation laid out in simpler terms that even a young child could comprehend.
