(A course for the young women of the Church, 1908-09.)
The object of the Y. L. M. I. A. is the development of perfect womanhood. To this end courses of study have been prepared for the education of young women spiritually, morally, mentally, and physically. In presenting the topics and Outlines on Ethics it is with a desire that our girls may understand the fundamental principles in the formation of character, the rules that govern and control the highest social life, that they may apply them in the building of their own character in the development of those qualities of true womanhood which will approach nearest to the Divine, and command the respect of all mankind. The lessons as outlined are merely a guide, and should be enlarged upon by both class leaders and members, so that the principles taught may be thoroughly understood and an especial effort made to get the girls to practice them in their daily lives.
Social Life Among our Latter-day Saint Boys and Girls.
(For September 15th, 1908.)
“I wish there were a true order of chivalry for our youth … in which both boys and girls should receive, at a given age, their Knighthood and Ladyhood, by true title; attainable only by certain probation and trial, both of character and accomplishment; and to be forfeited, on conviction, by their peers, of any dishonorable act.” — Ruskin.
