Tonight, in the women's session of General Conference, we announced some changes to the Young Women program, including an updated Young Women theme:
"I am a beloved daughter of heavenly parents, with a divine nature and eternal destiny.
As a disciple of Jesus Christ, I strive to become like Him. I seek and act upon personal revelation and minister to others in His holy name.
I will stand as a witness of God at all times and in all things, and in all places.
As I strive to qualify for exaltation, I cherish the gift of repentance and seek to improve each day. With faith, I will strengthen my home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, and receive the ordinances and blessings of the holy temple."
My dear young sisters, I bear witness that the words of the theme were inspired by the Lord. They have come at this particular time specifically for you! I promise that each time you repeat these words, you will receive a witness through the Holy Ghost and know how much Heavenly Father loves you. I invite you to study the scripture references in my conference talk as you begin to write these words upon your heart. And I hope that you will pray for a confirmation of your divine identity as a remarkable young woman—a beloved daughter of God. Oh, how the Lord loves you!

Yesterday the First Lady of Maryland, Yumi Hogan, welcomed a 60,000 lb food donation to the Maryland Food Bank given by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. First Lady Hogan described her childhood in South Korea in the aftermath of the Korean War where she experienced hunger herself. Fighting hunger, especially for the most vulnerable, is an issue she now champions.
The food was grown on farms run by the Church, packed by Church volunteers and shipped from Church headquarters in Salt Lake City. The Maryland Governor's Office of Community Initiatives worked in coordination with Day to Serve staff and Church volunteers to make this #daytoserve project a reality.

Jeffrey R. Holland
I was a student at BYU just finishing my first year of graduate work when our first child, a son, was born. We were very poor, though not so poor as Joseph and Mary. Nevertheless, when I realized that our own night of nights was coming, I believe I would have done any honorable thing in this world, and mortgaged any future I had, to make sure my wife had the clean sheets, the sterile utensils, the attentive nurses, and the skilled doctors who brought forth our firstborn son.
I compare those feelings (which I have had with each succeeding child) with what Joseph must have felt as he moved through the streets of a city not his own, with not a friend or kinsman in sight, nor anyone willing to extend a helping hand. In these very last and most painful hours of her “confinement,” Mary had ridden or walked approximately 100 miles from Nazareth in Galilee to Bethlehem in Judea. Surely Joseph must have wept at her silent courage.
I wonder what emotions Joseph might have had as he cleared away the dung and debris. I wonder if he felt the sting of tears as he hurriedly tried to find the cleanest straw and hold the animals back. I wonder if he wondered: “Could there be a more unhealthy, a more disease-ridden, a more despicable circumstance in which a child could be born? Should the mother of the Son of God be asked to enter the valley of the shadow of death in such a foul and unfamiliar place as this? Is it right He should be born here?” But I am certain Joseph did not mutter and Mary did not wail. They knew a great deal and did the best they could.
I’ve thought of Mary, too, this most favored mortal woman in the history of the world, who as a mere child received an angel who uttered to her those words that would change the course not only of her own life but also that of all human history: “Hail, thou virgin, who art highly favoured of the Lord. The Lord is with thee; for thou art chosen and blessed among women.”
It is here I stumble, here that I grasp for the feelings a mother has when she knows she has conceived a living soul, feels life quicken and grow within her womb, and carries a child to delivery. At such times fathers stand aside and watch, but mothers feel and never forget.
With only Joseph’s inexperienced assistance, she herself brought forth her firstborn son, wrapped him in the little clothes she had knowingly brought on her journey, and perhaps laid him on a pillow of hay. Shepherds would soon arrive and later, wise men from the East. Later yet the memory of that night would bring Santa Claus and Frosty and Rudolph—and all would be welcome. But first and forever there was just a little family, without toys or trees or tinsel. With a baby—that’s how Christmas began.
