Be Faithful to the Divine Attributes Within

The Faith of a Righteous Woman Blesses All Around Her
"In very large measure each of us holds the key to the blessings of the Almighty upon us. If we wish the blessing, we must pay the price. A part of that price lies in being faithful. Faithful to what? Faithful to ourselves, to the very best that is within us.

No woman can afford to demean herself, to belittle herself, to downgrade her abilities or her capacities. Let each be faithful to the great, divine attributes that are within her. Be faithful to the gospel. Be faithful to the Church. 

We have all about us those who are seeking to undermine it, to look for weaknesses in its early leaders, to find fault with its programs, to speak critically of it. I give you my testimony that it is the work of God, and those who speak against it are speaking against him." - President Gordon B. Hinckley, "If Thou Art Faithful"

Basic Differences between Men and Women

God's Plan of Happiness for His Children
We were CREATED to be different.  There is a good reason for this and as we come to understand our unique and special roles - we'll begin to see God's wisdom in His glorious plan.  

Bishop Victor L. Brown stated the following:  “In the scriptures we read, ‘So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.’ (Gen. 1:27.) The Lord defined some very basic differences between men and women. He gave the male what we call masculine traits and the female feminine traits. He did not intend either of the sexes to adopt the other’s traits but, rather, that men should look and act like men and that women should look and act like women”.
