Young Women

I have recently been called to serve as the 1st Counselor in the YW Presidency in my ward. I am excited about this new opportunity and experience. I was able to go to girl's camp this past summer and was so impressed by the young women in our stake and specifically in our ward - what a wonderful group of girls! I am honored to be working with them and I can't wait to get to know them better - I know that they will teach me a great deal and I hope to be a positive influence in their lives, as well.

In my scripture study, I came across these scriptures: D&C 6:34 & 36 "Therefore, fear not, little flock; do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if you are built upon my rock, they cannot prevail. Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not." This reminded me that if we built upon the rock of the gospel, we have nothing to fear. I love the Lord's reference to his "little flock" - it is easy to feel outnumbered and insignificant in the world, but he knows us and loves us and we matter to him. As we look unto the Lord in every thought and decision, we will be on the right path. I needed this positive reminder today.
