AND, since I’m really into quotes lately, here is one of my favorite from the book.
“Originally, it was intended in the divine economy of the Lord to set up an order wherein the mission of life for both men and women would be equal. Through motherhood women acquire a superior position of influence over each rising generation. This could completely eclipse the influence of their husbands. Having given so great a mission to the mothers of the race, our Heavenly Father placed them under the presidency of their husbands to preserve a proper balance of power, influence and division of labor. For this reason there is no power of presidency or Priesthood given to women. The blessings of Priesthood which they enjoy must come to them through their husbands. In this way a balance is maintained.”
