The Young Women meeting on Sunday should be used to teach gospel principles and how to apply them. Lessons are to be taught from the approved Young Women manuals. Each young woman should bring her scriptures . . . .

The Young Women presidency is responsible for administering the overall program of young women, including Sunday instruction. The adviser may be asked to teach the lessons. The presidency member may also assist in teaching. Guest speakers may occasionally be invited, with approval from the bishopric.Brief opening exercises should be held for Young Women, separately from the Aaronic Priesthood or the Relief Society. This meeting should create a spiritual atmosphere for the lessons that follow.
