Your part matters

Conference was amazing wasn't it? One of my many many many favorite talks was Sister Dalton's. Seriously if every woman in the world listened to that talk and really took it to heart and could really KNOW they are daughters of God, this would be a very different world. I think one of the themes of conference was that the worlds standards are getting further and further away from our standards and were going to have to stand our ground. 


"ACT WELL YOUR PART,
YOUR PART MATTERS"


"In a morally desensitizing world, young women need women and men to “stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places.” Never before has this been more important than now. Young women need mothers and mentors who exemplify virtuous womanhood. Mothers, your relationship with your daughter is of paramount importance, and so is your example. How you love and honor her father, his priesthood, and his divine role will be reflected and perhaps amplified in your daughter’s attitudes and behavior...

...Again I renew the call for a return to virtue. Virtue is the strength and power of daughters of God. What would the world be like if virtue—a pattern of thought and behavior based on high moral standards, including chastity—were reinstated in our society as a most highly prized value? If immorality, pornography, and abuse decreased, would there be fewer broken marriages, broken lives, and broken hearts? Would media ennoble and enable rather than objectify and degrade God’s precious daughters? If all humanity really understood the importance of the statement “We are daughters of our Heavenly Father,” how would women be regarded and treated?...

...In an extremely challenging world, that is what I see young women and women of this Church doing. They are an influence for good. They are virtuous and exemplary, intelligent and industrious. They are making a difference because they are different. They are acting well their part..."

Sis Dalton's talk really renewed my determination to be a virtuous woman and be in the world but not of the world. What the world needs is more examples of virtuous women. We are precious daughters of God with divine purpose.
