    Presidency Invites Young Women to Prepare for Meeting

    The Young Women general presidency has invited the young women of the Church, their parents, and their leaders to prepare themselves for the upcoming annual general Young Women meeting to be held on March 24, 2007.

    “The general Young Women meeting is the First Presidency’s meeting for you, the young women of the Church,” the Young Women leaders stated in announcing the meeting. “It is a great opportunity for you to receive encouragement and hear testimony from a member of the First Presidency and the Young Women general presidency.”

    Hundreds of thousands of young women ages 12 to 18 and their parents and leaders gather in meetinghouses around the world to participate in the broadcast each year.

    This year the Young Women general presidency has invited the young women to prepare themselves to be taught by the Spirit by doing the following:

    • Memorize D&C 121:45.

    • Memorize “As Zion’s Youth in Latter Days” (Liahona, Apr. 2000, 24).

    • Review the 13th article of faith.

    In addition the presidency challenged the young women to read For the Strength of Youth and do one of the following:

    • Circle each reference to the Spirit.

    • Highlight the promises found in the pamphlet.

    • Choose one standard, study it, and make goals for living it.

    The theme for this year’s meeting is the 2007 Mutual theme taken from D&C 121:45, “Let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence wax strong in the presence of God.”
