A Return to Virtue


....I just found out the most exciting thing! The attribute and value of VIRTUE has been added to the Young Women's Theme and the new color is GOLD!

"The time has come for the young women of the Church to lead the world in a return to virtue. This is the time to be pure and to qualify for the guidance of the Holy Ghost. In the coming year, it is our desire that all young women and their leaders focus on the meaning of virtue, what young women can do to accept and act upon this value, and how this attribute can strengthen young women as they prepare to be worthy to make and keep sacred covenants and receive temple ordinances."

&& Those who have already received their Young Women Recognition Award have the oppurtunity to complete the requirements for the value of VIRTUE! How cool. I love the Young Women's theme & I'm excited to complete the value experiences and project for VIRTUE in the coming months!! Elaine S.Dalton's talk on a return to virtue this past conference was one of my favorites. Go read it!

"I believe one virtuous young woman led by the Spirit can change the world.
--Elaine S. Dalton

that is such great news! i love the new addition - it seems perfect. Thanks for sharing this. I'll have to do the same. Gosh, I've only been released for two weeks from my YW calling, and obviously I'm behind already because of it.

Congratulations on going to the temple. That is the most wonderful and amazing place to be. I love it.

We are trying to figure out our travel plans so that we can come to your reception! Good luck with everything and enjoy the temple the most. :)
