In a relationship, a couple should be faithful to each other.
There is a risk for contracting sexually transmitted diseases, and spreading them to others, when engaging in sexual encounters with different partners. There is also, the possibility of getting hurt or endangering someone’s life or getting killed over a love affair.
To get involved with a person who is presently in a relationship, such as the young man did in the story, Self- Restraint from Sexual Temptation is using poor judgment. The woman referred to her husband as “The good Man.” She had no respect for her husband and neither for her body or health concerns for anyone else. To her, sexual encounters with different partners were a game. And it was one that turned out badly for the young man.

This story is based on the life of Priscilla Emerson and her family

Many people encounter stress, due to lack of scheduling their daily tasks. Some wait, until the very last minute, before doing anything. Scheduling, my tasks a day ahead, make them easier for me, the next day.
Before I started scheduling, my tasks were overwhelming! Trying to get too many things accomplished – caused difficulty in sleeping. This brought on sleep apnea attacks. Working outside of the home, being a parent, and spouse – and having to attend events, can be very stressful! And increasingly stressful, if you are a student or a career parent.
I can relate to all of the above.
Never schedule more than you know, you can do. Start with a few tasks for each day. Make a six-day schedule. Make a shopping list. Plan the shopping list, on the day, that is not your shopping day. This allows to carefully list all of the things you will need, until you need to visit the store again. Never wait until you run out of food, before you go shopping. When I shop, I buy enough food to last for two weeks. But, I will visit the store two days, before I run out of food.
*Laundry should never be done while other tasks are being performed.
*Plan your menu for the next day, and don’t alter your plan.
1.Start shopping several days ahead of the holiday:
2.House cleaning and shopping, shouldn’t be done on the same day
3.purchase foods that you know your family will eat
4.Shop when you aren’t rushed for time
5.Shopping for food and gifts for the holidays, aren’t stressful when done on
6. Shop for gifts on the days you have more time to spend in the store.
7. Pick a time of the day or night, that you feel the stores in your community
are less crowded.
Allowing Time for Yourself:
This is very difficult to do. But when it is done, it relieves tension, that causes stress.
Before going to bed, take time to unwind. Find something that helps you to relax. Never schedule any tasks for all 7 days of the week. Use one day to have some freedom.
I found that sitting on the floor and stretching, along with taking deep breaths and some other forms, of exercises – I came up with, help me to relax, and sleep more comfortably. Since these exercises, have greatly helped me, I want to share them with others.
Illustrations, and information, for exercising – and stress related illnesses, are listed in the book above.
