My own favorite object lesson came from a bishop’s counselor in Laramie, Wyoming, who more than 50 years ago, passed a clean, new Lifesaver around a circle of hungry deacons and then offered the dirty and somewhat sticky piece of candy to anyone who wanted to eat it. This wise teacher challenged us to remember the lesson when we were old enough to begin dating. We needed to keep ourselves morally clean and to respect our dates. It was a powerful lesson on chastity I never forgot.
