ALL willing members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormons) have many opportunities to give service, contribute talents, and learn new skills. Each week, Mormon women give sermons, offer prayers in behalf of the congregation, instruct adults as well as children, and lead in the Church on the local and worldwide level. Mormon women also have the opportunity to serve as missionaries, and are presidents of the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary organizations. They also carry out critical work in nurturing and teaching in the home.

Relief Society is an organization in which all Mormon women, or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all belong to and lead. This organization consists of several million women around the globe. The Church’s Young Women organization and the Primary (an organization with the purpose of teaching children) is also lead by women. As mentioned above, these institutions are present on local levels as well as worldwide levels, in which these Mormon women meet regularly in meetings to discuss and direct the effort of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Mormon Family

Mormon Family

Mormon families are eternal families (they extend beyond the period of death). My family is an eternal family that believes in God and Jesus Christ. I’m grateful for a loving mother and father that have helped to rear me in the right way and to teach me to believe in Christ’s teachings that are found in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Those teachings that have been taught by my mother and father are ones I have carried with me to this day. Being educated by family in the mormon (lds) church is the best way one can be taught the good news of Christ. Mormon families are able to go to church service each Sunday and be taught from local leaders on those principles Christ taught us. Through these principles mormon families can then teach one another. This is time we get to all learn from each other.

The Young Women Organization

Mormons and the Young Women Organization

The Young Women’s organization in the Mormon Church includes all young women from ages 12-18. With their motto “Stand for truth and righteousness”, these young Mormon women meet together each Sunday for one hour where they are taught by their lessons by their leaders that prepare them to be virtuous and strong women. They also meet once a week for activities. Some of these activities may include cooking classes, learning basic self defense or tips on how to budget, lessons on health and fitness, playing games, and humanitarian projects. These activities aim to promote personal development, and provide a wholesome environment where these Mormon youth can make lasting friends with others who share similar beliefs and values.
Katie, a Mormon girl said, “I love the Young Women program, where I feel accepted and loved. It’s also an environment that makes me want to become a little better each day, and more like my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that my leaders truly care about me, and the girls have become like sisters to me.”

Mormon Fun

Mormon Fun

For some reason, Mormons often have the negative connotation that they are solemn and boring. In fact, it is quite the contrary! Mormons know how to have fun, and anyone who knows them knows it’s true! Getting a group together will always be a good time, no matter where you are. Mormons don’t need to drink or smoke to have a blast! They believe in participating in wholesome activities that bring families and friends together through quality time to strengthen relationships. Mormons also believe in agreeing on reasonable time limits for television, computer, video games, and other electronic equipment that will allow stronger family communication. In this picture a group of Mormons are doing just that, dancing and enjoying each other’s company at a wedding reception in southern Utah.
