1998 Young Women Worldwide Celebration

To help young women turn their hearts to and strengthen their associations with their families, young women of the Church are invited to participate in an 11-month celebration titled “Turning Hearts to the Family.”

Beginning in January 1998, each young woman is encouraged to read and study “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” prepare a record of her family’s history, prepare at least one family name for temple ordinances and perform the baptismal work where possible, participate in activities that focus on the family or on strengthening the family, and participate in a culminating activity in November 1998.

The celebration may be held at either the ward or branch level or the stake or district level. Under the direction of local priesthood leaders, Young Women leaders will organize appropriate events with the help of the young women. Specialists and Young Women committees may be appointed where needed.
