Media

“Regardless of our age, if what we look at, read, listen to, or choose to do does not meet the Lord’s standards in For the Strength of Youth, turn it off, rip it up, throw it out, and slam the door.” (Linda S. Reeves, Relief Society General Presidency, “Worthy of Our Promised Blessings,” General Conference, October 2015)

“Don’t let any influence come into your life or your home that would cause you to compromise your covenants or your commitment to your wife and family.” (Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President, “Love Her Mother,” General Conference, October 2011)

“Be cautious about what you view in entertainment media or print. Your personal virtue will model for your daughters, and also your sons, what true strength and moral courage are.” (Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President, “Love Her Mother,” General Conference, October 2011)

“We must take care that the media we invite into our homes does not dull the sensitivity to the Spirit, harm relationships with our family and friends, or reveal personal priorities that are inconsistent with gospel principles.” (Mary N. Cook, Young Women General Presidency, “Be an Example of the Believers,” General Conference, October 2010)

“Spending long periods of time using the Internet, social media, and cell phones; playing video games; or watching television keeps us from productive activities and valuable interactions with others.” (Mary N. Cook, Young Women General Presidency, “Be an Example of the Believers,” General Conference, October 2010)

“Despite popular media messages to the contrary, no one is rich enough, beautiful enough, or clever enough to avoid a mortal experience.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “And upon the Handmaids in Those Days Will I Pour Out My Spirit,” General Conference, April 2010)

“We should avoid inappropriate material on the Internet and on cell phones, as well as offensive music and suggestive dancing. You may be mocked, you may have fingers pointed at you, you may have to stand alone, but please have the courage to withstand these temptations.” (Mary N. Cook, Young Women General Presidency, “A Virtuous Life—Step by Step,” General Conference, April 2009)
