    Now Is the Time to Lead

    The call to “arise and shine forth” is a call to each of you to lead the world in a mighty cause—to raise the standard—and lead this generation in virtue, purity, and temple worthiness. If you desire to make a difference in the world, you must be different from the world. I echo the words of Joseph F. Smith who said to the women of his day: “It is not for you to be led by the [young] women of the world; it is for you to lead . . . the [young] women of the world, in everything that is . . . purifying to the children of men” (Joseph F. Smith, in Minutes of the General Board of Relief Society, Mar. 17, 1914, Church History Library, 55). These words ring true today. As daughters of God, you were born to lead.
