Last month, we had our annual New Beginnings night for Young Women. Theme: Personal Progress--Steps to Eternity. We had footsteps leading from the front doors into the multicultural hall with quotes and goals written on them. We displayed shoes from each girl and spoke of how our shoes serve different purposes.
We had white dresses displayed representing blessings, baptisms, and temple marriage as steps or milestones in our eternal progression. Everything turned out beautiful; I felt that we blended fun with inspiration and motivation in a spiritual setting.
I am thankful to have a challenging, yet rewarding place to serve. I am thankful for creative and talented women to serve with. I am also thankful to my husband and daughters who help me out in multiple ways, especially when I'm extra stressed. (The cupcakes turned out great!) Most of all I am thankful to a Father in Heaven who knows me, loves me, believes in me when I seriously doubt myself, and helps me through every little or big event in my life whether it be joyful or otherwise.
