Female Mormons that are members of the LDS church have certain expectations placed upon them; these include being humble, showing respect to both their husband and the church, to be chaste, to bear children and to support all the works of the LDS Church. The term Molly Mormon is what is commonly given as a means as describing the average Mormon woman that fits this stereotype. The term Molly Mormon is by no means a bad thing however it is capable of being used in a derogatory manner.
Times are changing
Choosing to live your life being humble and chaste and following all of the other expectations of a Mormon molly is perfectly fine; in fact it is something to be admired. However in today’s Modern world some of the more ancient and old fashioned view of what makes a molly are not the same as they once were. There are numerous resources online that give advice to Mormon mollies or those looking to become one on how they should dress. For any molly or aspiring molly looking at these resources though they should not feel that in any way this means that they should wear anything that would make them uncomfortable. Whilst most of the old ideas regarding Mollies still hold true today, Modern Mormon woman now have a little more freedom in regards to how they dress rather than conforming to ancient out of date expectations.
Teaching a child to grow up the right way is extremely important as mother especially young girls. From a young age it is important that they are educated about what it means to be a molly and what is acceptable and what is not. One of the most important things that a Mormon molly mother can teach their child is that it is definitely not something that should be ashamed of and that choosing that way of life means you are following the instructions of the Lord and that they should be proud.
Unless you have been hiding beneath a rock for the past few years you have no doubt come across memes during your time on the internet. Even if you don’t know what a meme is you will almost certainly have still seen at least one even if you were unaware that it was indeed a meme.
What is a meme?
If you look up the term meme in the dictionary you will see that it they are an idea, expression or belief of an individual that are passed on from person to person. With the internet memes are created and passed on much faster as they become viral with the help of people posting them on social media sites such as Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest and Twitter.
There are many different types of means most of them are humorous or funny pictures with equally humorous quotes. Memes can also be used to carry political messages or advertising products in a funny way. Many companies are now catching on to the fact that a funny meme can spread like wildfire on the internet and are using them to market their products and brand names.
Funny LDS Memes
Whilst the majority of memes may be deemed unsuitable humour for Mormons or members of the LDS church this does not mean that the use of funny memes is lost within the Mormon culture. In fact there are hundreds of funny LDS memes posted on sites such as Pinterest and Facebook as well as being sent between Mormon friends on LDS forums. Many of the LDS memes include funny uses of LDS quotes or funny situations regarding Mormon culture such as bible study. While not many non-Mormons would find some of the LDS memes particularly funny, for Mormons funny LDS memes are a great source of fun and humour amongst friends.
Internet memes are part of popular culture, cover a wide variety of topics and can be enjoyed by everyone.
Choose the right or CTR as it is often referred to, is a popular phrase amongst Mormons and other members of the LDS Church. It is one of the fundamental foundations of the Mormon religion and way of life; the phrase itself comes from the hymn of the same title “choose the right”. Choose the right is used as a means of teaching Mormon children the importance of being righteous and to follow the path of Jesus Christ in everything that they do. Choose the right is an extension of the overall importance of having strong morals and beliefs within the Mormon religion and LDS church.
CTR rings are not worshipped by Mormons as some people believe; rather they are a symbolic representation and foundation of their belief used as a means of keeping their faith. The very first CTR rings that were created by the LDS church were designed for children between the ages of 2 and 11. These rings had a logo of a green shield with the letters CTR written in gold across it, the shield signified strength that one gets from performing righteous deeds and choosing the right path in life. Nowadays CTR rings are worn by both adults and children, male and female regardless of age. The CTR ring is proudly worn by many Mormons and members of the LDS Church as a way of publically acknowledging their devotion to the Mormon faith, religion and way of life.
CTR a positive force
Choose the right is a positive force for good and it provides motivation and encouragement to all Mormons and members of the LDS church to choose the right direction in their life and to do good deeds. Wearing a CTR ring or other CTR accessory such as a tie clip or cufflinks is just another way of reminding Mormons to keep to the right path in everyday life. Anyone with a strong belief in the Lord Jesus Christ will understand the significance and importance of the phrase choose the right because sometimes taking the right path is not as easy as it may seem but choosing this path will bring eternal joy and happiness as well as bringing them closer to the Lord.

While many people outside of the LDS and Mormon Church may not find some of our LDS jokes particularly funny the jokes below are considered to be some of the funniest LDS humour around.
Selection of LDS and Mormon Jokes
A Mormon man standing in line to get his lunch leans over to the man standing next to him and says, “Do you want to hear a Mormon joke?”
The man next to him says, “Well before you tell it, there’s something you should know. I’m 6′ tall, 300 lbs., and I’m anti-Mormon. The guy who sits next to me is 6’1 tall and weighs 245 lbs and he’s also anti-Mormon. The guy sitting next to him is 6’4 tall, weighs 285lbs, and he’s anti-Mormon too. Now, do you still want to tell that joke?”
The Mormon man says, “No, not if I’m going to have to explain it three times.”
Everybody in Salt Lake City in Utah is well versed in the practice of family history research. Even the larger department stores in the city sell Research supplies. A newcomer to the city who is also not a researcher gets a Job as a clerk at one of the bigger department stores. She gets introduced to genealogy one day when customer enters the store and asks her “Where can I find the Family group sheets?” with a totally shocked look on her face the new clerk answers “I’m sorry all we stock are queen, king, twin and double sheets.”
I am sure if you are reading these as a non-Mormon then you are thinking to yourself how this is funny and you would be forgiven. But these jokes illustrate how we as Mormons enjoy a good joke even to the point where most LDS jokes are actually poking fun at ourselves.
