We Need Women Who Are…

Once again I loved LDS General Conference that was on again this weekend.  One of the speakers, Elder Christofferson gave a fantastic talk on women of the world.  He talked about keeping women feminine and women of the world.  He quoted former Relief Society President Margaret Nadauld and I absolutely adored this quote.  ”The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.  There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.  We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.  We have enough greed we need more goodness.  We have enough vanity we need more virtue.  We have enough popularity, we need more purity.”  I made it into a little printable but couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I uploaded them all.  Feel free to copy, download, or pass out in a lesson.

  • I’m not a Mormon but these quotes are very nice, something to think about. Thanks for sharing them with us. Happy week

    • Thanks JaneEllen! I’m always hoping that I don’t offend people with my posts, but this one seems to be so universally true, I’m glad you like it too. (Funny, the posts that generate the most controversy are about florescent lighting and unhealthy kid snacks, go figure!)

  • And wouldn’t it be a better world if we had those same qualities in men?

  • I shared this in our ward’s Facebook group, thank you for such a beautiful interpretation! =)
