Day 183, June 30

Last Sunday in Sacrament Meeting, the Young Women (girls 12 - 18) sang a beautiful song about "guardians of virtue."  The phrase immediately caught my attention.

It reminded me that we are all charged to be guardians of virtue.  Whether we are parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, leaders, whatever, we should take this charge seriously. 

Let me tell you about some people who are guardians of virtue.  There are the Primary teachers who have as their stewardship teaching the youngest of God's children.  There are those who serve in the military who protect our country and our freedoms.  There are the volunteers at House of Neighborly Service, Habitat for Humanity, and other organizations who help the less fortunate in our community.  There are the parents who hold Family Home Evening faithfully every Monday evening to help their children understand the Gospel.  There are visiting teachers who care about the sisters given to their charge.

So, for today, I am grateful for guardians of virtue.

  1. What a neat phrase, guardians of virtue -- one that I hadn't heard before.

    I think more and more of these guardians are going to be needed to help keep our children strong.
