Peer Pressure


“King Benjamin’s people made a covenant to obey God’s commandments, as has each of us. As you keep that covenant, you will stand as a witness among your peers.”

“If you have ever felt the tug of peer pressure, pray, ask in faith, and listen to the Holy Ghost. Then live the gospel. Joseph keenly realized his imperfections and weaknesses. Again—he prayed. In response to this prayer, he was visited by the angel Moroni. Joseph recounted: ‘He called me by name’ and said ‘that God had a work for me to do.’ ”

“Choose you this day whom you will serve (See Josh. 24:15). Choose to be obedient, not disobedient; choose to be self-disciplined, not self-indulgent. Shun temptation; listen to counsel; don’t follow the crowd in fashion and fad. Choose to follow the words of the scriptures and living prophets without compromise or complaint. We need young women who will not yield to unrighteous peer pressure or submit to immoral activities. We need young women who will maintain their purity, whose actions are the same as their beliefs, who can say with Job, ‘Till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.’ (Job 27:5.)”

Ardeth G. Kapp, Young Women General President
