  3. 3. 1. Respect & Courtesy to Young Women • "You young men must cultivate a considerate attitude toward women of all ages. The young women asked me to tell you that they want you to respect them and show them common, sincere courtesy. Do not hesitate to show your good manners by opening a door for them, taking the initiative in inviting them on a date, and standing as they enter a room." – M. Russell Ballard, "Purity Precedes Power," Ensign, Nov. 1990
  4. 4. 2. Gratitude to the Women in Your Life • "You young men need to know that you can hardly achieve your highest potential without the influence of good women, particularly your mother and, in a few years, a good wife. Learn now to show respect and gratitude… Thank her and express your love for her... The influence of your mother will bless you throughout life, especially when you serve as a missionary.” – Russell M. Nelson, "Our Sacred Duty to Honor Women," April 1999
  5. 5. 3. Virtuous and Chaste in Word and Deed • “Use language that uplifts, encourages, and compliments others. Do not insult others or put them down, even in joking.

  7. 7. 4. Faithfully Attend to Priesthood Duties • “We who bear the holy priesthood have a sacred duty to honor our sisters. We are old enough and wise enough to know that teasing is wrong. We respect sisters—not only in our immediate families but all the wonderful sisters in our lives. As daughters of God, their potential is divine. Without them, eternal life would be impossible.” – Russell M. Nelson, "Our Sacred Duty to Honor Women," April 1999
  8. 8. 5. Prepare for Marriage and Fatherhood • “ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female— are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny.” • “…By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners.” – The Family, A Proclamation to the World
  9. 9. 5. Prepare for Marriage and Fatherhood • “In the celestial glory there are three heavens…in order to obtain the highest, a man must enter into …the new and everlasting covenant of marriage.” – Doctrine and Covenants 131:2 • The apostle Paul counseled: “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it” (Eph. 5:25). • Start now to obey that commandment by… – Respecting your mothers and grandmothers. – Respecting your sisters and aunts. – Respecting the women and young women in your ward.
  10. 10. 6. Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother • The 2,000 Stripling Warriors honored their mothers: • "Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them. And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it." – Alma 56: 47-48
  11. 11. 6. Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother • Our Savior honored his mother • "Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother... When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.“ – John 19: 25-27
  12. 12. 7. Be an example of the believers • “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” – 1 Tim 4:12 • Be a good example to your friends and always show respect for women.
  13. 13. 8. Keep the commandments • "Let us speak about our worthy and wonderful sisters, particularly our mothers, and consider our sacred duty to honor them...if one dishonors the commandments of God, one dishonors mother, and if one dishonors mother, one dishonors the commandments of God.“ – Russell M. Nelson, "Our Sacred Duty to Honor Women," April 1999
  14. 14. 9. Serve a Full-Time Mission • “Missionary service is a priesthood duty—an obligation the Lord expects of us who have been given so very much. Young men, I admonish you to prepare for service as a missionary. Keep yourselves clean and pure and worthy to represent the Lord.” – President Thomas S. Monson, As We Meet Together Again, October 2010 • Young women in the Church are taught to respect young men and encourage them to serve a full-time mission. • Young men can honor those young women by faithfully serving a full-time mission.
  15. 15. 10. Avoid Pornography • “I warn against pornography. It is degrading of women. It is evil. It is infectious, destructive, and addictive. The body has means by which it can cleanse itself from harmful effects of contaminated food or drink. But it cannot vomit back the poison of pornography. Once recorded, it always remains subject to recall, flashing its perverted images across your mind, with power to draw you away from the wholesome things in life. Avoid it like the plague!” – Russell M. Nelson, "Our Sacred Duty to Honor Women," April 1999
