How often have we heard our young daughters proclaim such a heartbreaking statement? In a world that has convinced young women, they must look like supermodels to be considered beautiful, self-esteem and self-worth are suffering greatly.
Jodie Marie Robinson refuses to allow her three daughters to grow up believing they are anything but beautiful. Not beautiful by the world s definition beautiful by the Lord s definition. And that definition is virtue.
President Hinckley said, There is none more beautiful, more inspiring than a [woman] who knows who she is, who walks in virtue with an understanding of why she should do so. True beauty is virtuous beauty. It is felt with the heart, not seen with the eyes. It is inherently part of a woman's divine nature.
In Women of Virtue, beauty is redefined as a rare and priceless love of ones inner self. Let each of us open our eyes to discover within ourselves the beauty of virtue, and teach our children our future that therein lies true happiness.
