"sister scriptorians"

1 Timothy 1:11-12
(New Testament)
 
“But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with good works.”


Because we have women leaders and teachers in our Church, does that mean that we don’t believe in the Bible?

“We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; 
we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that 
He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.” (Articles of Faith 8-9)

How great is it to know that we have a modern Prophet revealing to us the Word of God?

  Today women are called by God to serve and lead in the Church with callings such as Relief Society Presidents, Young Women Presidents and Primary Presidents, to share their natural love for others by serving others and being an example for women all over the world.

We are daughters of a loving Heavenly Father, with talents and gift who make us capable to serve others. All our gifts and talents are different from one to another but in the end all together in unity can make a big difference.

I have a testimony that the Bible is the word of God and like the Bible telling us in Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
I testify of a modern day living prophet who receives the word of God telling us the will of God. 
I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the guiding and leading church of Jesus Christ Himself. He is the head of His Church and directs it.

Here is my favorite video talking about Later-Day Saint women from across the globe sharing how their God given strength allows them to impact the world.

"Our past prophets have reminded us as women that we have an important role as teachers in the home and Church. In September 1979, President Spencer W. Kimball (1895–1985) asked us to become 'sister scriptorians.' He said: 'Become scholars of the scriptures—not to put others down, but to lift them up! After all, who has any greater need to ‘treasure up’ the truths of the gospel (on which they may call in their moments of need) than do women and mothers who do so much nurturing and teaching?'
We are all teachers and learners. When we teach from the scriptures and the words of our living prophets, we can help others come unto Christ. When we engage in the learning process by asking meaningful questions and then listening, we can find answers that meet our personal needs."
