There is increasing evidence that some young women are being strongly encouraged to serve full-time missions. Though capable and effective, young women do not have the same responsibility to serve full-time missions as do young men who hold the priesthood. We are grateful that some desire to serve . . . but they should not feel obligated to do so. A young woman should not be recommended for a mission if it would interfere with a specific marriage proposal.

Inquiries are being received at Church headquarters regarding commercially produced instructional materials, particularly animated videocassettes. Commercially available materials should not replace the approved curriculum items available at Church distributions centers, and they should not be stored in or disseminated from the meetinghouse libraries.- Bulletin, 1993-2
