If you haven't already heard

The Young Women's program in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has had a change. A new value has been added to the 7 original values of Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice & Accountability, Good Works & Integrity. That new value is Virtue. It's color is gold & the scripture that goes with it is Proverbs 31:10 which says: "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies." The focuses for Virtue read: "I will prepare to enter the temple & remain pure & worthy. My thoughts & actions will be based on high moral standards." I am really excited about the value experiences & the 10 hour project associated with this value as it really helps the girls practice living virtuous & chaste lives in preparation for entering the temple to take out their own endowments. The 10 hour project is reading the entire Book of Mormon with a focus on what those who followed the Savior did to lead virtuous lives.

I am going to be working on these experiences & the project, & I invite all of you to do it also. Not only will it greatly bless your spiritual life, your marriage or other relationships will benefit & you will be working toward attending the temple if you haven't already gone, or you will be keeping yourself worthy to return. These goals aren't just for the young women, they are for all the members of the church, and I hope that you will take the challenge & do this as I do.
