 "We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous,
  and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow
  the admonition of Paul - We believe all things, we hope all things,
  we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all
  things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of  good report or
  praiseworthy, we seek after these things."

OBJECT LESSONS:
 
  Dye on your hands - Make up a jar or cup full of colored water the same as you would for coloring eggs. Hot ater (not too hot) with a tablespoon of white vinegar and food coloring. Have each person in the class or family put their fingers or hand into the jar with the dye then take it out and dry their hand. Here is the quotation taken directly from Earl Monson's conference talk: "We may not appreciate the capacity of our our minds to absorb and remember if we think it doesn't matter what books or movies or other activities are fed into it. The Lord wisely told us to seek first for the kingdom of God and then other desirable things will also come to us. Elder Sterling W. Sill noted that our mind, like the dyer's hand, is colored by what it hold; that is, if I hold in my hand purple dye, my hand becomes purple. Those who help establish the Church know what is bad, but they consistently choose the better part and fill their minds with pure thoughts."  Continue or elaborate on the discussion about how what we read or see stays with us just like the dye.  Therefore, seek after those things that are praiseworthy and of good report.  (Taken from Elder Earl M. Monson's conference talk November 1998.  Source: Geocities)

QUOTES:

 President Gordon B. Hinckley counseled:  “We live in a time when the world considers virtue lightly. . . .“Be clean. Watch what you read. No good and much harm can come of reading pornographic magazines and other such literature. They will only stimulate within you thoughts  that will weaken your discipline of yourself. No good will come of going to movies that are designed to take from you your money and give you in exchange only weakened wills and base desires” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1981, 58–59; or Ensign, Nov. 1981, 41; see also Philippians 4:8). 
 President Gordon B. Hinckley said, "I wish that every family in the Church would write (the Thirteenth Article of Faith) and put it on a mirror where every member of the family would see it every day.  Then, whenever we might be tempted to do anything shoddy or dishonest or immoral, there would come into our minds with some force this great, all encompassing statement of the ethics of our behavior.  There would be less rationalizing over some element of our personal conduct which we try to justify with one excuse or another." (April Conference, 1983)
