just about sums it up...

"Moral discipline is the consistent exercise of agency to choose the right because it is right, even when it is hard. It rejects the self-absorbed life in favor of developing character worthy of respect and true greatness through Christlike service (see Mark 10:42–45)."

D. Todd Christofferson, "Moral Discipline," Ensign, Nov. 2009, 105


  1. Your quotes and thoughts have been very insightful lately. I'm struggling with motivation to keep the LOC, my bishop was less then helpful (he read a scripture about how in the last days 7 women will cling to 1 man, NOT what I needed to hear to help me want to be good, ahhh), and I'm feeling lost. Thanks.

  2. thanks for commenting. i actually have had that quote bouncing around for a few weeks, maybe you are the reason why i finally posted it today. :)
    sometimes its hard to talk to a bishop about these things. i admire your courage to even attempt it. i have an amazing bishop and i dont know if i could ever go to him with such concerns.
    i dont know if you are in a relationship-actually i dont know anything except you are struggling, but i can tell you from experience: its worth it. its worth obeying the law of chastity. its difficult when we are in a world that promotes such promiscuity, when waiting until the 3rd date to have sex is considered "conservitive".
    bottom line, i understand the "lost" feeling. like you are the only one not having a blast knocking boots with someone. its not true and its one of the adversary's biggest ploys.
    i dont want to diminish what you are feeling-you may have read my "ho ho horny" post from a few weeks ago-so you know that i "get it".
    at the risk of sounding cliche-hang in there.
