Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

If it were even possible (not to mention privacy issues) I would put a picture up of all of the awesome girls I have the privilege of associating with these days. First, I was just in Activity Days. Then I was in Young Women AND Activity Days. And now, I am in Young Women. I remember thinking how much I would love to be in Young Women... and then I would remind myself of all of the DRAMA involved! :D I am learning to love the drama. And I pray all the time that I will be able to say the right thing at the right time to minimize some of the drama.

Girls Camp Sunday has ALWAYS been my favorite! You know, the first Fast Sunday after Girls Camp when they all go up and tell about how their testimonies were strengthened and how the bonded and what scary, gross or annoying thing brought them closer together. Be it rain, or bears, or what have you.

You may be thinking that your Ward has the best and brightest Young Women in the world. And you're probably right where YOU are concerned. But as far as I am concerned, we have the most capital A AWESOME girls! Their integrity and strength of spirit amazes me. Their testimonies are so strong! They are valiant and talented. They are so kind to each other! In a world where their age group is not widely known for such a trait, in fact.

I am excited and humbled and oh so happy to be working with the youth in my neck of the woods. And I am thrilled at the direction the Personal Progress goals take me and I can't wait to earn my medallion... again! :)

Yes, the YW are amazing. I too, was amazed at how thoughtful they are about each other. I feel the same, that I pray that I will be able to say the right thing to help them in the trials they have in their lives. Whether they are drama 'trials' or real. I love the YW!!

I wish you could be the YW leader to M & M! They would do so much better with a leader who enthusiastically loves them!

So true. I just posted pictures of them on my blog though, so I hope those privacy issues won't be a problem. I'm sure they love you as much as you love them.
