Reverencing Womanhood.

This week has been busy.  And I cannot believe that it's Friday already.  The past couple of months I had the chance to serve on a committee for my stake to organize an evening titled "Reverencing Womanhood." The night was inspired by this talk Susan Bednar gave at BYU-I while her husband was serving as BYU-I President.  Have you read it?  It's amazing. 


I was able to share a few thoughts that night about  reverencing womanhood + modesty.  In my preparations for this, I came across this gem of a quote:

"I want you to feel the reality of what this means, to know who you truly are.  You are literally a spirit daughter of heavenly parents with a divine nature and an eternal destiny.  That surpassing truth should be fixed deep in your soul and be fundamental to every decision you make." -Jeffrey R. Holland

I wonder what the world would be like if we all considered this "surpassing truth" before making every decision?

I feel so grateful to know who I am. 


Thank you for being patient with me the past couple of months, dears.  With my dying computer and this evening weighing on my mind, I know I've been absent a lot.  To make it up to you, I think I've just about figured out how to offer up my very first free printable.  I think you'll like it. A lot.  Keep your eyes peeled...it may just pop up in your reader this weekend.

Happy Friday!

p.s. iPhone pictures of the invitations + cookie sleeves I created for the night.

  3. I was there when Sister Bednar gave her talk at BYU-I, and I was there the evening all of you women gave your talks in Pasco. You all definitely captured the Spirit of her talk. Great job!

  4. The night was wonderful. I think everyone involved did a great job and the hard work all of you put in was evident! The YW defintely needed that message and I think they had to come away with a better understanding of who they are!

  6. What a beautiful message to end this week on. Thank you so much for being willing to share such an amazing truth with your readers. I am so excited for the day when everyone does consider this "truth". I have that quote on the back of one of my cupboards, but I've never read the talk. I'm looking forward to it & wishing that I could have shared in that night with your stake. Sounds like it was a success! Happy weekend!
