Beehive (LDS Church)

Beehive (LDS Church)

A Beehive is a 12-13 year old participant in the Young Women organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

The name "beehive" was first used in the LDS Church's organization for young women in 1913, when a "Beehive Girls" program was organized. In 1920, the Young Ladies Mutual Improvement Association operated the Beehive House, one of the former residences of Brigham Young, as a dormitory for young girls. In 1943, the beehive was adopted as the class symbol for the youngest class of young women in the church. In 1950, the youngest class was officially given the name of "Beehives".

The symbol of the Beehives is a young woman bowing her head in prayer.LDS Church, "Church Handbook of Instructions, Book 2: Priesthood and Auxiliary Leaders", 1998, p. 213.] The Beehive purpose statement is:

"A Beehive becomes a Young Woman of Truth as she follows the promptings of the Holy Ghost, seeks truth, and strives to live and share it."
