New Young Women Theme

So I know I am a little behind, but I just heard about the change to the Young Women Theme. They have added "virtue" to the list of values.

The letter from the First Presidency says, "We invite parents and leaders to teach the doctrine of chastity and moral purity to help each young woman to be virtuous and worthy to make and keep sacred covenants and receive the ordinances of the temple."

I am very excited for this new change. Even though it will be tricky at first, we can get it. It was hard to add in "strengthen home and family" at first too.

This is the new Theme:

We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us, and we love him. We will "stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things and in all places" as we strive to live the Young Women values, which are:


Divine Nature

Individual Worth


Choice and Accountability

Good Works

Integrity and


We believe as we come to accept and act upon these values, we will be prepared to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.

WHAT?! Crazy. I did not know about that. Yeah, every time I have to say the theme now I ALWAYS say that strengthen home and family part wrong. I hate it. Now I'm gonna botch it up even more. GREAT.

Spencer just told me about this today! At first, I insisted that virtue was already one of the young women values, so he had to be wrong. And then I silently recited the theme to myself and stood corrected. :00

I'm so confused! Why did they change it??!! Isn't our church all about consistency? haha...i'm sorry...it's all about "AND integrity!" Isn't virtue a given if you follow all of the other values??? How can you not have VIRTUE if you have divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, integrity...yadda, yadda...

Hi, I'm Sister Espinoza, YW's Second Counselor from the Lugonia Spanish Branch in the Redlands, CA Stake and your page I have to say is REALLY REALLY cute. In fact, it is so cute and neat that I had an epiphone listening to your music, seeing your pictures and seeing people just blogging here... what if for a project my YW and my President and YW 1st Counselor make a blog page JUST like this using a camera and web cam and put music on here and people can sorta follow what we're doing??? Shhh, it's a surprise cuz my President doesn't know yet! :D. Ooops, Hermana Cuevas you weren't supposed to find out... So thanks for the brilliant IDEA!
