Dating and the Plan of Happiness: What Every Teenager Should Know - Talk on CD *
Author - John Hilton III
"Why do I have to wait until I'm 16 to date?" "Why is so much emphasis given to the law of chastity?"
"How far can you go and still not sin?"
These are some of the questions often asked by youth. In this candid talk, John Hilton gives straightforward answers, using teachings of the prophets, humor, and illustrative stories. John remembers what it was like to be a teenager on the merry-go-round of dating and has the additional perspective of a mission and temple marriage to help him discuss some sensitive issues about morality in the context of the "big picture." John focuses on dating in terms of the plan of happiness and explains the benefits of setting and following personal standards. This is a talk that will not only help you navigate the waters of dating but also have more fun doing so.
