Elder D. Todd Christofferson “The Moral Force of Women”

Elder Christofferson • “By praising and encouraging the moral force of women, I am not saying that men and boys are somehow excused from their own duty to stand for truth and righteousness, that their responsibility to serve, sacrifice, and minister is somehow less than that of women or can be left to women. Brethren, let us stand with women, share their burdens, and cultivate our own companion moral authority.”

Challenge: • How many women can you name from the scriptures?

Women Statistics in Scriptures: Named Unnamed Groups of Unnamed Old Testament 133 90 145 319 New Testament 33 28 16 60 Book of Mormon 3 18 66 24 Doctrine & Covenants 2 4 4 20 Pearl of Great Price 2 17 5 24 Scripture Parables including women *A group can consist of anywhere between 2-3 women and 10,000 women Total= AT LEAST 556 women mentioned in the scripture

“The Unnamed Woman” Lesson Objective: Whether named or unnamed, we can contribute to and witness grand miracles.

“Duality” of Men & Women

Warnings • 1. Devaluation of marriage and motherhood • 2. Attitudes toward human sexuality • 3. In the name of equality, erasing the difference between the masculine and the feminine

President Margaret D. Nadauld • “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. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. 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.”

Raising an Olympian

Text Challenge • Text, or write, a note of gratitude, to a woman in your life that has allowed you to witness miracles, large or small.
