Daily Reminder on Dress and Appearance: #20 out of 21

I, ____________________, commit to living the Lord’s standards for dress and appearance word for word as written in For the Strength of Youth until February 1st.

“Show respect for the Lord and yourself by dressing appropriately for Church meetings and activities. This is especially important when attending sacrament services. Young men should dress with dignity when officiating in the ordinance of the sacrament.” – For the Strength of Youth

Tomorrow and for the next two Sundays, I, ____________________, will show respect for the Lord by dressing appropriately for church meetings and activities.

For Men:

I, ____________________, will dress with dignity as I pass, prepare, and/or bless the sacrament.

” “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” declares that “parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, and to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God, and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations.”  The Lord has commanded us to teach our children important truths, and teaching modesty and virtue is one of our most vital responsibilities. So how do we do this?

” We need to teach through word and example. As President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, taught: “It has been said, ‘Teaching by example is one way to teach.’ I would say, ‘Teaching by example is the best way to teach.’” We can set a family standard by always dressing ourselves modestly, appropriately, and tastefully. If we are endowed, we should always wear our temple garments and treat them with respect and reverence. When we as parents and leaders are consistent with what we teach and what we do, we avoid the confusion we may otherwise cause.

” We need to teach from For the Strength of Youth. The principles taught in this booklet leave room for personal revelation and freedom of choice. ” – “Teaching Modesty to Our Children” by Silvia H. Allred. From https://www.lds.org/ensign/2009/07/modesty-a-timeless-principle-for-all?lang=eng#footnote3-04207_000_009
