Video Presentation: I Have a Purpose

The following is a transcript of a video shown during the general Young Women meeting held on March 27, 2010.


President Thomas S. Monson: “Again, my dear young sisters, although there have always been challenges in the world, many of those which you face are unique to this time.” 1

Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women general president: “In order to be virtuous and remain virtuous, you must be true to your divine identity and establish patterns of thought and behavior based on high moral standards.” 2

President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency: “I pray with all my heart that your faith will be increased that you are a daughter of a loving God.” 3

Mary N. Cook, first counselor in the Young Women general presidency: “You, my dear young women, have already made many good choices. Now you must establish patterns of virtue that will keep you on this path throughout your life.” 4

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency: “Sisters, trust and rely on the Spirit. As you take the normal opportunities of your daily life and create something of beauty and helpfulness, you improve not only the world around you but also the world within you.” 5

Ann M. Dibb, second counselor in the Young Women general presidency: “The small and simple things you choose to do today will be magnified into great and glorious blessings tomorrow.” 6

Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women general president: “Can one righteous young woman change the world? The answer is a resounding ‘yes!’ … It is the daily consistent things you do that will strengthen you to be a leader and an example—daily prayer, daily scripture study, daily obedience, daily service to others. As you do these things, you will grow closer to the Savior and become more and more like Him.” 7

President Thomas S. Monson: “My young friends, be strong. … You know what is right and what is wrong, and no disguise, however appealing, can change that [truth]. If your so-called friends urge you to do anything you know to be wrong, you be the one to make a stand for right, even if you stand alone.” 8
