Overview

Originally constituted in February 1843 by the Prophet Joseph Smith, the youth organization of the church has always held great importance. Through its evolution to an official church auxiliary and what we now know as simply the Young Women's organization, many great leaders have dedicated countless hours and love to the young women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From Elmina Shepard Taylor, the first general Young Women president, to Janette C. Hales, whose administration takes the organization into the 1990s, Keepers of the Flame tells the stories of these ten women, each a "keeper of the flame" in her own way. These are stories of courage, faith, service, and compassion, stories that provide greater understanding of the Lord's work with the youth and of those who lead out in performing it. Through the problems of establishing new homes and communities in the West, the crises associated with plural marriage, the poverty of the Depression of the 1930s, two world wars, and confusion over the changing status of women in recent years, these loving leaders have each applied their particular talents and insights to unite the young women of a worldwide church. Keepers of the Flame is an inspiring look at some who have had leading roles in helping to make a difference for young women, the Church, and the world.
