Young Women with Disabilities

“I hope that we welcome and love all of God’s children, including those who might dress, look, speak, or just do things differently. … Let us lift those around us. … Let us bestow … a special measure of humanity, compassion, and charity so that they feel, at long last, they have finally found home” (Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “You Are My Hands,” Liahona, May 2010).

Young Women leaders, you are encouraged to follow the Savior’s example of offering hope, understanding, and love to those who have disabilities. Get to know them and show genuine interest and concern.
