Women are integral to the governance and work of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve during a devotional held in the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University on Tuesday. This year marks the 91st year of the annual conference that typically brings more than 20,000 people from around the world to the university’s campus.
“A woman’s sphere of influence is a unique sphere, one that cannot be duplicated by men,” Elder Ballard said. Because of that, women have an important responsibility in strengthening the kingdom of God on the earth.
Elder Ballard shared five key points regarding women and their critical role in building the church.
