at our conference we were asked to share an experience or a trial that we had on our missions and a scripture that helped us get through it. the "theme" i guess you could call was inadequacy or weakness, we shared our experiences and the scripture, for every girl that got up and every experience they felt, I have felt, every scripture they shared was what i needed to hear. I felt like every sister was talking to me. I'm pretty sure that every sister in that room felt the same way. some of the sisters shared scriptures from the Book of Mormon, Alma 7:11-13, Alma 40:11-12, the Bible: Matthew 11:28-30, Romans 8:15-18.
In my family I am the only girl out of 5 kids. for growing up in a family of mostly boys I am pretty girly and I have my mom and dad to thank for that. my dad never let me mow the lawn because its a boys job, or pull weed's. but i was taught how to clean the house and cook food. It is something that I enjoy doing now (not so much the cleaning part, but having everything clean).
I am so grateful for this gospel and for all that it teaches me to do. I am so grateful for all the sisters that i serve around, they all teach me so much, I am grateful for all of my past companions and future ones. i have learned so much from each of them. I love my savior and my Heavenly Father and all that they teach me. I'm so glad that i was prompted to serve a mission and that i was called to serve in the CASRM. I'm grateful for parents who helped instill my womanly nature.
