I had the opportunity to attend the best of EFY (especially for youth) today, because I am a young women's leader. It was so much fun... so uplifting... it was really the boost that I needed. I will run down my favorite part from each speaker.
3 decisions that can bring more peace to your life.
1} decide to be happy.
"Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you. It is measured by the spirit in which you accept life's challenges."
2} Decide to change.
"therefore cheer up your hearts and remember that ye are free to act for yourselves..." (2Nephi 10:23)
3} Decide to NEVER give up.
"Christ knows what we need while we merely know what we want." (Neil A. Maxwell)
all of the trials in life are to give us strength... it is all about attitude.
Build your foundation on the savior.
pray... dress yourself in the armor of God.
"Someone is watching, and that's a fact,
someone will copy the way you act.
So make this your motto, and put it to use,
Be someone's example, and not their excuse."
Know your weaknesses, and DON'T GO THERE!!
Be a good example, and don't do things and be in places where the holy ghost can't be present.
self control. We live in a world that is out of control. however, "though we live IN the world... we need not be OF the world."
"Poeple do not lack strengh, they lack will." ~Victor Hugo
"Some of the greatest battles of our lives are fought within the silent chambers of our own souls." ~David O. Mckay
Be an example.
Be a comfortor.
Virtue = Power.
These are obviously just little blurbs from my notes, but I can tell you that I am so happy to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I believe in it will all of my heart. I feel like in a world of pain and suffering it is truely my light. I am uplifted and I have a new resolve to be all that I can be. I will be an example. (just don't follow toooo close... I slam on my brakes alot.) lol! =)
~all my love
