LDS girls, Do LDS Things, In LDS Ways... and this is exactly what makes an LDS girl, different from their peers. In a world, where most girls have no direction and no real reason for being "good" - LDS girls actually DO!

LDS girls who know who they are - make better choices.
So, I suppose you could apply the saying that "knowledge is power"? But even more important than a general statement like that... is knowing that the knowledge you embrace, just happens to be - the TRUTH.

LDS girls operate, and therefore make choices - that are anchored in eternal truths. Do LDS girls make mistakes? You bet they do! But after they hit themselves upside the head a bit for doing so - they will most always learn from those mistakes.

How can a girl know what is right, if no one ever offers her truth - by which to compare and analyze her choices, actions and the results that are caused by her use of agency? LDS girls are blessed to have been offered by loving parents, leaders and living prophets today - the TRUTH.

I honor these LDS girls from their teen years, and up to the time where they make the most important decisions of a young women today. Education, relationships and ultimately marriage and family. LDS young women are making good choices, based on their very personal experiences of utilizing the truth that they know, against that which the world would have them believe.

LDS girls know how to "Stand For Something" in a world that is fast becoming extremely wayward and lost to moral values.

So yes... LDS Girls Do LDS Things in LDS Ways, because they KNOW!

LDS Girls and Dating Dilemmas

Dating has always been a really interesting conversation among single LDS girls of any age. In fact there is a whole section dedicated to dating in the For the Strength of Youth guidebook.

The counsels that are given by our LDS leaders include:

  • Date those with high standards and in whose company you can maintain your standards.
  • Both Young Men and Young Women are responsible to help each other maintain high standards and protect each other’s honor and virtue
  • Honor the sanctity of the priesthood and of womanhood.
  • Do not date until you are at least 16 years old.
  • When you begin dating go in groups or double dates.
  • Avoid going on frequent dates with the same person.
  • Make sure your parents meet those you date.
  • Invite your dates to activities with your family.
  • Plan positive and inexpensive dating activities.

These dating guidelines are given for the protection of both LDS girls and LDS boys. By following this counsel you can have “safe” dating relationships.

Now for some fun...I found this really cool Blog written by a man named Dave Johnston. He has started a question and answer Blog about dating and relationship advice, called Dear Bro Jo. He has received some interesting questions about dating that he has answered and given some really KOOL advice. Now is just his opinion...but it is fun to see what he has to say.

What do you think about LDS girls and the dating counsel given in the For the Strength of Youth Pamphlet? Is there any part of the counsel you find challenging? Why?
