Hey good friends,
Well I have good and bad news! I've spared you from my political ramblings, but I haven't blogged in awhile. It's probably better that way. I've had many ideas, but they have been too hard to put into words...I have several unpublished posts that will probably never debut on here. But then again, it's probably better that way. Hopefully you enjoy this post. I hope I get lots of comments!
I was called to serve in my church with the Young Women's Program earlier this year. One of the things we encourage the young women in our church ages 12-18 to do is to work on 8 different values throughout their time in young women. We call this "Personal Progress" and this is how it works according to the overview in the Personal Progress book:
"Personal Progress will help you strengthen your faith in and testimony of Jesus Christ as you learn His teachings and regularly apply them in your life. It will help you strengthen both your present family and your future family. It will help you prepare to make and keep sacred covenants and receive the ordinances of the temple. And it will prepare you to be a faithful, contributing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
