New Young Women’s Value – Virtue December 7, 2008

new-young-women-value-virtueThe First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints recently announced a new value to the Young Women’s theme – virtue.  For the official letter dated November 28, 2008, click here.

From the official church website, ‘”Virtue is a pattern of thought and behavior based on high moral standards. It encompasses chastity and moral purity.” 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.’

The Young Women’s theme is recited by Latter-day Saint girls aged 12-18 each Sunday across the world.  Here is the updated version:

“We are daughters of our Heavenly Father who loves us, and we love Him.  We will stand as witnesses of God, at all times, and in all things, and in all places, as we strive to live the Young Women Values, which are:

Faith
Divine Nature
Individual Worth
Knowledge
Choice and Accountability
Good Works
Integrity and
Virtue

We believe as we come to accept and act upon these values, we will be prepared to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.”
