Blessings of Sister Missionaries

I received this quote while in the MTC. It is probably the most famous sister missionary quote I've ever read. It has such wonderful promises for sister missionaries in it and is by my favorite prophet, President Hinckley.

“Today many sisters are being called to serve. Many more are preparing to serve. Not because they aren't married or don't have anything else to do, but they have the desire to serve. One reason that the Lord wants more sisters to serve is because within the next generation He will send His priesthood army to the earth. He wants to send choice spirit children to mothers who have been prepared, properly trained, and taught in the gospel. What better schooling can a mother have than the experience and growth she gains through serving a mission.”

--President Gordon B. Hinckley

(I was told that this was given at a Missionary Conference back in 2004, but I don't know where or when.)



  1. I love this quote! I have been looking for it for forever. I would love to find the reference. I had this on my fridge in my apartments when I was serving in 1999-2000 so it must be older than that.

  2. I'm sorry, but this is actually a false quote... I ran across this post that I think you will find helpful:


  3. Fake Quote. President Hinckley said "We do not ask the young women to consider a mission as an essential part of their life’s program. Again to the sisters I say that you will be as highly respected, you will be considered as being as much in the line of duty, your efforts will be as acceptable to the Lord and to the Church whether you go on a mission or do not go on a mission.
    I certainly do not wish to say or imply that your services are not wanted. I simply say that a mission is not necessary as a part of your lives"


  4. This quote is considered false. http://bit.ly/1VSvYdz

  5. Ive served as a sister missionary and i know that this quote is absolutely true! Thanks to Latter Day Revelations!
