Raising young women well in the modern world

*

The Mormon record of more marriages, younger marriages, stronger marriages, and larger families isn't something that 'just happens' but a consequence of a vast amount of work from a lot of people - as can be seen from Adam Greenwood's summary of the LDS 'system' for raising young women against the grain of modernity.

  1. I didn't realize it was so much effort until I put it all down in writing.

    The Mormon system for young men is, if anything, even more laborious.

    Modernity is pretty strong--its the air we breathe--so its not surprising that it takes serious effort to fight it.

  2. Adam,
    I read your post. Mormons are doing a wonderful job in the modern world. While I am not Mormon I respect your works esp. re. families and children. I find the faith an interesting and complimentary Christian Church.
