Oct '08 VT Message: Gender is an Essential Characteristic of Eternal Identitiy and Purpose

October's Visit Teaching Message Link

I love the quote by Sister Nadauld, "Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." Those are amazing qualities, ones that I truly desire. To me when I think of the ideal women it is one who provides service to others because she loves them. She is tender and kind to her children and respects their feelings. She stands in faith when confronted with everyday life. She looks at everyone around her and sees them as her brothers and sisters and as Gods children. I also found it very interesting that once again Sister Beck was quoted saying, "A women who treasures motherhood on earth will treasure motherhood in the world to come." It must be a very important message, because it has been quoted in I think three different visit teaching messages this year. I think it is to help us remember what an important role we have as mothers. That it is truly a divine calling. I would also like to share the quote from Elder Ballard, "...My dear sister, we believe in you. We believe in and are counting on your goodness and your strength, ... And we believe that God's plan is for you to become queens and to receive the highest blessings any women can receive in time or eternity." Does that not want you to live your life righteously? Please share your thoughts on this months message.
