The Lord has not left women to wonder how to perform during mortality. The teachings of the ten presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have given very satisfying answers to most questions, and have invited women to ask God for inspiration of their own for further, personalized direction.
The counsel of the prophets gives women directions concerning whom, when, and where to marry. However, if the proper opportunities for a Church-recommended marriage don't present themselves, women are told to be patient and to spend their time giving one of the several services for which they are naturally gifted. Then if they prove worthy they have been promised complete fulfillment as wives and mothers in future realms.
Instructions have been given to women on how to perform as helpmeets to their husbands, mothers to their children, homemakers, and good neighbors. Their questions have been answered on birth control, other careers, and dress fashions.
The study concludes with a word picture of women's complete existence from their spiritual birth to their chances of an eternity as exalted beings.
