Nelson, 93, has been set apart to be the president of the nearly sixteen-million-member denomination. This change in leadership was completely expected, as Mormon tradition dictates that the most senior member of the Quorum of the Twelve always assumes the mantle of the prophet.

When you reach an age where you think of marriage, then is the time to become so involved. So what does this counsel really mean, and what are the reasons for it?
Two Kinds of Dating To begin with, the general term dating may be a little confusing, since nowadays it sometimes seems to imply something a little more serious than what we intend it to mean in relation to youth in the Church.

Roberts’s famous seven-volume history, History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints only mentions a few women. Education and scholarship was also a primary concern for Mormon women. Religious missions, like Bathsheba W. Smith ‘s mission to southern Utah to preach “woman’s rights”, were launched. Wells said that women should speak for themselves, and if that is considered manly, that should be a good thing, since if men are superior, becoming more masculine ought to be desirable.: The laws were advantageous to women: One of Brigham Young ‘s wives divorced him and launched a lucrative career as a public speaker.
