There are many things personal progress can teach you if you allow it to. When you start you may already know some of these things but it will allow you to deepen your knowledge and appreciation of it.
You can find the following quote in your Personal Progress booklet. I love it and think it is exactly what Personal Progress teaches.
“Give me a young woman who loves home and family, who read and ponders the scriptures daily, who has a burning testimony of the Book of Mormon. Give me a young woman who faithfully attends her church meetings, who is a seminary graduate, who has earned her Young Womanhood Recognition Award and wears it with pride! Give me a young woman who is virtuous and who has maintained hr personal purity , who will not settle for less than a temple marriage, and I will give you a young woman who will perform miracles for the Lord now and throughout eternity. “
President Ezra Taft Benson
