What I Love About Church

Aside from believing the things I've studied and have been taught, there's one other HUGE reason I love church.  And it's because of these fine young ladies.  For the past 2 years I've been in the Young Women's presidency.  This means that I get to work with these lovely young women who are bright, friendly, hilarious, fun, serving, hilarious (did I mention that already?), cute, smart, faithful, and all around fantastic.  I truly love spending time with them.  Whether it's teaching on Sundays, planning fun activities for Wednesdays, chaperoning dances, or getting ready for Girls' Camp this summer (ahhhhh!  soooo excited for this year!!!), I just love being around them. 

One thing that I am truly impressed with is their dedication to what they believe.  They live what they believe.  Their faith is deep rooted and they are incredible examples to their friends.  When I was in high school, I don't remember sharing my beliefs in the same way that these girls do.  They look for opportunities instead of waiting for opportunities to come to them.  I was always willing to answer questions, but I waited until I was approached.  These girls are always looking for ways to teach their friends what it is that they believe, and stand as examples of what a good member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is all about.  I love these girls.  This has been the best calling ever.  I would stay working with the young women for the rest of my life if I could.

On this night, we were all learning hair tricks from Kelly L.  Fun, easy tips and tricks for the summer.  That's also where I learned about Biosilk's Beach Texture spray.  LOVE IT!  Use it all the time now.  Thanks Kelly!
