Spiritual and Temporal Self-Reliance

“The power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves” (Doctrine and Covenants 58:28).

The outlines in this unit will help the young women understand the importance of becoming spiritually and temporally self-reliant. Although they are in their youth, these young women have been blessed with the gift of agency, and they are learning how to set their own course and find answers to their own problems in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The more self-reliant they become, the more freedom they will enjoy. They will be better prepared to serve the Lord, strengthen their families, and fulfill their future roles as wives and mothers.

Outlines to Choose from This Month


Consider how you can plan activities that connect with what the youth are learning. The Church’s Youth Activities site is available to assist you. Many of the learning activities in these outlines could also serve as effective Mutual activities. Work with class presidencies to select and plan appropriate activities that reinforce what the young women learn on Sunday.
