Bonnie Oscarson came and spoke to us

Bonnie Oscarson is the General Young Women President for my church. One of her daughters is in our stake and so I guess we had some pull there. It was a wonderful evening last night. I got so much out of her talk. Some of the points that made an impression on me is how we are all so important to our Heavenly Father. We are worth worlds to him. (I loved that!) That we need to replace the noise of the world with good things and not get caught up in what isn't important. The world is very noisy these days and we are inundated with being told we aren't pretty enough, we aren't skinny enough, etc. and that we need to conform to what the world thinks is important. I don't think so!

I am grateful to be a daughter of our Heavenly Father. And for the knowledge I have of the gospel. We are worthwhile and we are all beautiful (or handsome for the men and boys) and we all have a purpose. I feel very blessed.
