“I delight in the chastity and purity of all women and men. How it must grieve the Lord to see virtue violated and modesty mocked on every side in this wicked world.”

Susan W. Tanner, Young Women General President
My Soul Delighteth in the Things of the Lord,” April 2008 General Conference


“Modesty is not a matter of being ‘hip.’ It is a matter of the heart and being holy. It is not about being fashionable. It is about being faithful. It is not about being cool. It is about being chaste and keeping covenants. It is not about being popular, but about being pure. Modesty has everything to do with keeping our footing securely on the path of chastity and virtue. It is clear that virtue is a requirement for exaltation. Mormon helps us understand that both virtue and chastity are ‘most dear and precious above all things’. We simply cannot afford to be casual or get too close to the edge. That is dangerous ground for any daughter of God to walk.”

Elaine S. Dalton, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Stay on the Path,” April 2007 General Conference


“What would happen if we truly treated our bodies as temples? The result would be a dramatic increase in chastity, modesty, observance of the Word of Wisdom, and a similar decrease in the problems of pornography and abuse, for we would regard the body, like the temple, as a sacred sanctuary of the Spirit. Just as no unclean thing may enter the temple, we would be vigilant to keep impurity of any sort from entering the temple of our bodies.”

Susan W. Tanner, Young Women General President
The Sanctity of the Body,” October 2005 General Conference
