Following is a new video from Mormon Messages for Youth, with teachings from Sister Elaine Dalton’s talk “Remember who you are!” including thoughts about true, deep beauty:
[Deep] beauty … cannot be purchased. It [comes] from years of seeking the best gifts, becoming well educated, seeking knowledge by study and also by faith. It [comes] from years of hard work, of faithfully enduring trials with optimism, trust, strength, and courage. It [comes] from her unwavering devotion and fidelity to … husband, … family, and the Lord.
“[D]eep beauty” [is] the kind of beauty that shines from the inside out. It is the kind of beauty that cannot be painted on, surgically created, or purchased. It is the kind of beauty that doesn’t wash off. It is spiritual attractiveness. Deep beauty springs from virtue. It is the beauty of being chaste and morally clean. It is the kind of beauty that you see in the eyes of virtuous women…. It is a beauty that is earned through faith, repentance, and honoring covenants.
