Beauty

linebreak

“Think of the effect temples have on their surroundings. They beautify inner cities; they shine from prominent hills. Why do they beautify and shine? Because, as the scriptures say, ‘Truth shineth,’ and temples contain truth and eternal purpose; so do you.”

Neill F. Marriott, Second Counselor, Young Women General Presidency
Sharing Your Light,” October 2014 General Conference

“I wish every young woman assembled here tonight would know and understand that your beauty—your ‘shine’—does not lie in makeup, gooey cream, or the latest clothing or hairstyles. It lies in your personal purity. When you live the standards and qualify for the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, you can have a powerful impact in the world. Your example, even the light in your eyes, will influence others who see your ‘shine,’ and they will want to be like you.”

Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President

“…I learned about what I now call ‘deep beauty’—the kind of beauty that shines from the inside out. It is the kind of beauty that cannot be painted on, surgically created, or purchased.

“It is the kind of beauty that doesn’t wash off. It is spiritual attractiveness. Deep beauty springs from virtue. It is the beauty of being chaste and morally clean. It is the kind of beauty that you see in the eyes of virtuous women like your mother and grandmother. It is a beauty that is earned through faith, repentance, and honoring covenants.”

Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President
Remember Who You Are!” April 2010 General Conference

“Young women, look into the mirror of eternity. Remember who you are! See yourself as our Heavenly Father sees you. You are elect. You are of noble birth. Don’t compromise your divine inheritance. You were born to be a queen. Live so you are worthy to enter the temple and there receive ‘all that [the] Father hath.’ Develop deep beauty. There is no more beautiful sight than a young woman who glows with the light of the Spirit, who is confident and courageous because she is virtuous.”
