Single Latter-day Saints are 'some of the noblest members'

Denise Stewart of the Emerson Ward, Caldwell New Jersey Stake, understands the impact that single members can have in an area. In her stake are members from various walks of life. Some come from the inner city and have had difficult lives. Others have recently moved from home and are starting out on their own for the first time. All are striving for something better and are willing to contribute to help build the kingdom of God.

"Some of them have great temptations," Sister Stewart said. For several years she has worked with the young single adults and is currently an institute teacher.
