What President Nelson Said About His 4 Challenges to Women in 2018 + What to Look Forward to in 2019

During the general women's session of the October 2018 general conference, President Nelson extended four invitations to the women of the Church.

1. Participate in a 10-day fast from social media and any other media that bring negative and impure thoughts to your mind.

2. Read the Book of Mormon by the end of 2018.

3. Establish a pattern of regular temple attendance.

4. Participate fully in Relief Society.

Now that 2018 has come to a close, here's what President Nelson said about the four invitations and what members should look forward to in 2019.

My dear sisters, you may remember that during the October general conference, I extended four invitations to you:

1. Participate in a 10-day fast from social media and any other media that bring negative and impure thoughts to your mind.

2. Read the Book of Mormon by the end of 2018.

3. Establish a pattern of regular temple attendance.

4. Participate fully in Relief Society.

I hope that each of these invitations has brought you closer to the Savior. If you have struggled with any of them, please don’t be hard on yourself. You can start today. The Lord is happy with any effort we make to draw closer to Him.

I promise that as you prayerfully study the Book of Mormon, the heavens will open for you. The Lord will bless you with increased inspiration and revelation.

As we begin our home-centered, Church-supported curriculum in 2019, you sisters are a key to the success of this new, balanced, and coordinated gospel-teaching effort. Please teach those whom you love what you are learning from the scriptures. Teach them how to turn to the Savior for His healing and cleansing power when they sin. And teach them how to draw upon His strengthening power every day of their lives.

I am eager to hear about what you have learned as you have focused on these four invitations. I invite you to please leave me a comment below about your experiences.
