Mormon take on Young Women

I was a "Young Women's" President and a youth sunday school teacher for most of my time in DC.  I joined the mormon church when i was 16 so, it was via the youth program that i learned the gospel.  mine has always been the youthful testimony, not the old wise sage one.

its weird to see how behavior isn't matching doctrine.  but every mormon, post-mormon, FoMo, ex-Mo, HoMoMo, any woman who had anything to do with mormonism while she was between the ages of 12-18 will know this pure doctrine about women:

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" (Mosiah 18:9) 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.
