“Virtue is a pattern of thought and behavior based on high moral standards. It encompasses chastity and moral purity. Virtue begins in the heart and in the mind. It is the accumulation of thousands of small decisions and actions.” -Elaine Dalton’s
There has never been a more important time to understand and practice virtue. We call on each young woman to do her best in accepting and acting upon the value of Virtue. We promise that a young woman’s life will be blessed, her family will be strengthened and her confidence will ‘wax strong’ as she becomes pure and virtuous and prepares to assist in the great work of preparing the earth for the Savior’s second coming. – Sisters Elaine S. Dalton, Mary N. Cook, and Ann M. Dibb The General Young Women Presidency
“You will need [courage] to be chaste and virtuous. You live in a world where moral values have, in great measure, been tossed aside, where sin is flagrantly on display, and where temptations to stray from the strait and narrow path surround you. Many are the voices telling you that you are far too provincial or that there is something wrong with you if you still believe there is such a thing as immoral behavior.”Isaiah declared, ‘Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness’ (Isaiah 5:20).”Great courage will be required as you remain chaste and virtuous amid the accepted thinking of the times.” – Thomas S. Monson, “May You Have Courage,” Ensign, May 2009, 125
“Never before has there been a greater need for virtue and purity in the world.”The value of virtue has been given a symbolic color, like the other values. The color of virtue is gold because gold is pure. It shines. It is soft, not harsh or brash. It is precious. Gold must be refined. As you live a pure and virtuous life, you will be refined by your life’s experiences, and as you ‘trust in the Lord’ (Proverbs 3:5) and draw closer to Him, He will ‘make [your] hearts as gold’ (Roger Hoffman, “Consider the Lilies”).” – Elaine S. Dalton, “Come Let Us Go Up to the Mountain of the Lord,” Ensign, May 2009, 120.
“In order to be virtuous and remain virtuous, you must be true to your divine identity and establish patterns of thought and behavior based on high moral standards (see Preach My Gospel , 118–19). These standards are eternal, and they do not change. They have been taught by prophets of God. In a world filled with relative truth, the Lord’s standards are absolute. They are given to each of us to keep us on the path leading back to the presence of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.” – Elaine S. Dalton, “Come Let Us Go Up to the Mountain of the Lord,” Ensign, May 2009, 121.
“Because of the knowledge of our divine identity, everything must be different for us: our dress, our language, our priorities, and our focus. We must not seek guidance from the world, and if our true identity has been clouded by mistakes or sins, we can change. We can turn around and repent and return to virtue. . . . The Savior’s Atonement is for you and for me. He invites each of us to come unto Him.” – Elaine S. Dalton, “Come Let Us Go Up to the Mountain of the Lord,” Ensign, May 2009, 122.
“In Doctrine and Covenants section 25, the Lord counsels each of His beloved daughters, you and me, to ‘walk in the paths of virtue’ (v.2). You are not common. You are not ordinary. You are daughters of God. You carry within yourselves the sacred power to create life. It is one of God’s greatest gifts to His precious daughters, and you must safeguard that power by living the standards and remaining virtuous. You must safeguard your power through purity of thought and action. By so doing, you, your family, and the generations that follow will be strengthened and blessed. President Brigham Young taught that ‘the strength of Zion is in the virtue of her sons and daughters’ (Letters of Brigham Young to His Sons, ed. Dean C. Jesse , 221).”You must guard your own virtue and help others rise to the divinity that is within. In every sense, you are a guardian of virtue. President David O. McKay taught that ‘a woman should be queen of her own body’ (in Conference Report, Apr. 1952, 86). ‘Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?’ (1 Corinthians 3:16). My question to each of you is, If we don’t stand for virtue, who will?” – S. Dalton, “Come Let Us Go Up to the Mountain of the Lord,” Ensign, May 2009, 121.
Here are some Quotes about Reading the Book of Mormon
*I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book* (Joseph Smith, in Introduction to the Book of Mormon).
“There is a power in the Book of Mormon which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin a serious study of the book. You will find greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception. You will find the power to stay on the straight and narrow path…..You will find in greater and greater abundance”
-Ezra Taft Benson
*Give me a young woman who loves home and family, who reads and ponders the scriptures daily, who has a burning testimony of the Book of Mormon. Give me a young woman who faithfully attends her church meetings, who is a seminary graduate, who has earned her Young Womanhood Recognition Award and wears it with pride! Give me a young woman who is virtuous and who has maintained her personal purity, who will not settle for less than a temple marriage, and I will give you a young woman who will perform miracles for the Lord now and throughout eternity* (Ezra Taft Benson, To the Young Women of the Church,* Ensign, Nov. 1986, 84).
“If you don’t have time to pray and read your scriptures, you are busier than God ever intended you to be”
