Dear Life,

I have met two girls whose beauty rival any precious jewel.   They both sparkle and shine like prized precious jewels.  

Elizabeth Taylor jewels....
Although both girls are beautiful on the outside, their hearts are so full that their faces shine with inner light and beauty.  
These two seventeen year olds don't rely on womanly wiles, don't flaunt their faces with too much makeup or their bodies with not enough clothes.  

These two girls have tapped into the most important thing in life...

One of them has recognized that my son is feeling down....and that he's unsure of who his friends are and what his beliefs are. She has decided to make him a scrapbook with letters from his friends....with pictures...with CD's for different help him realize when he's in Hawaii that he is never alone.  I am totally amazed by this girls ability to realize that something like this can totally make a difference for my boy.  (If you're a teen reading this it's a don't tell him).  She's been worried about him and felt like this was a way she could help him.   I can't believe she tapped into exactly what he needs to hear right now....LOVE her!!

Another has taken a family tragedy and strengthened her own personal relationship with God and is helping strengthen others in her own sweet way.  To see a young girl deal with a tragedy that could flatten an adult....  with grace and a never ending smile, and realizing that having an eternal perspective on life changes everything blows my mind. Then her willingness to share that testimony with others....her joy for the gospel radiates from her sweet smile.... LOVE her!!


These two find their love for their Savior, their love for their friends, their love for their families, and allows it to change them into better people.   

I love these two girls...and I love their families.  And to be fair....these aren't the only two.

I am learning more from these two...

one day....
maybe one day...

 I'll be able to shine like these two young girls.

This is what these girls learn about...and I think they both GET it!

We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us,
and we love him. We will "stand as witnesses of God at all
times and in all things, and in all places..." as we strive
to live the Young Women Values, which are:
Divine Nature
Individual Worth
Choice and Accountability
Good Works
Integrity and
We believe as we come to accept and act upon these values,
we will be prepared to strengthen home and family, make and keep
sacred covenants, receive ordinances of the temple, and
enjoy the blessings of exaltation.

Don't forget about the giveaway...before it's GONE....
