by | Nov. 16, 2012

Young Women

Discussion Questions
• Why is it important to gain an education?
• How can a good education help us in the future? How can getting an education better prepare us to be wives and mothers?
• How are education and learning lifelong processes?
• In what ways can a spiritual education support the other aspects of our education?

Supplement is an excerpt from "Let Virtue Garnish Thy Thoughts Unceasingly" by President Gordon B. Hinckley, April 2007 General Conference:

Beyond ecclesiastical study there is the challenge of education. Resolve now, while you are young, that you will get all of the education you can. We live in a highly competitive age, and it will only grow worse. Education is the key that will unlock the door of opportunity.

You may plan on marriage, and hope for it, but you are not certain that it will come. And even though you marry, education will be of great benefit to you. Don’t just drift along, letting the days come and go without improvement in your lives. The Lord will bless you as you make the effort. Your lives will be enriched and your outlook broadened as your minds are opened to new vistas and knowledge.
