Lesson 19: Heritage. The focus of this lesson is that each young woman will understand the importance of the traditions she receives and passes on to future generations.
This lesson talks about our heritage of out families here on earth and then talks about our righteous heritage. How important it is to be proud that we are daughters of a Heavenly Father who loves us. The importance of having traditions that remind us of the living the gospel.
I really loved this quote from the lesson.
“A heritage of Godliness is yours. … Born in the spirit a child of God and quickened now by his power, his love. For you he gave his Only Begotten Son. For you Christ lived and died and lives again.
“This Church provides you with a heritage in truth, in covenants, in motivation, in courage, in direction, in friendships and leadership, in strength to rise out of the dust of this life to a new level of being.
“Hold fast to your heritage. It is most valuable. Hold high your head.
“Be glad you are you—not another instead. With all that you’re heir to, add some of your own. Contribute. Accomplish. Serve. Excel. Drink deeply of the good things in life and of the spirit. Live that you may one day hand to your children and your children’s children the blessing of a heritage even more worthy than your own” (Elaine Cannon, “What of Your Heritage?” Improvement Era, Aug. 1964, p. 690)."
