Without sounding dramatic, in Oct. 2015, my life changed when I heard Russell M. Nelson speak to women in a stirring talk called: A Plea To My Sisters. Seriously-
Since then I have studied, read, listened to, pondered & prayed over this talk countless times. (Again, no drama- but I'm serious--- countless times)
One thing I learned from 2 dear friends @melanieBurk & @lizzy.jensen is to read all of his pleas as affirmations that I AM.
So when he called out to say: "WE NEED WOMEN WHO..." I personalize it & read: "I AM A WOMAN WHO..."
Personalizing such an inspired talk has brought clarity, peace & excitement into my life as I am trying to call on the grace of Christ to enable me & transform me into this kind of woman. I've got a list of I AM's that I read every single day as I pray, study scripture, ponder & meditate. It's so humbling as I work ever day to BECOME this kind of woman. I am faarrrrr from it, but I have so much joy knowing I have a lifetime & beyond to BECOME this kind of woman. I'm grateful for Christ's power that truly enlivens, empowers, enables & strengthens me far beyond my own abilities. I know with Christ I can become this kind of woman. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I invite you to read this talk. The direct link is in my profile. And, remember: this is a place to build faith- no matter our religious affiliation. I believe like-minded people need to come together in this ever-darkening world. We can share our LIGHT. We can learn from each other & lift each other. While I share my journey along my spiritual path- (& since I am #LDS Mormon- I will include that) I believe deeply that we can all tailor these principles to our own lives. No matter where we are--- like-minded faithful people who want to bring & share more LIGHT--- unite! And I would LOVE you to share your thoughts & insights!
