I, ____________________, will be a righteous influence on those I date.

I, ____________________, commit to teaching my children to only date those who have high standards and in whose company they can maintain their standards. I will teach my children to protect the virtue and honor of those they date.

“In dating and a courtship relationship, I would not have you spend five minutes with someone who belittles you, who is constantly critical of you, who is cruel at your expense and may even call it humor. Life is tough enough without having the person who is supposed to love you leading the assault on your self-esteem, your sense of dignity, your confidence, and your joy. In this person’s care you deserve to feel physically safe and emotionally secure.

“If you are just going for pizza or to play a set of tennis, go with anyone who will provide good, clean fun. But if you are serious, or planning to be serious, please find someone who brings out the best in you and is not envious of your success. Find someone who suffers when you suffer and who finds his or her happiness in your own.” – How Do I Love Thee? by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

What can I do to practice virtue and holiness before God continually?
