I need help!
Last night I got a call from a woman in the YW presidency. She asked me to attend a panel for a combined Young Women activity. The topic is about family, improving family relations, that sort of thing. I have to be prepared to answer all kinds of questions b/c it will be an open forum. But, I do have to have a prepared statement/talk about what is the most important piece of advice I could give my daughters? I’m totally overwhelmed. I think it’s sort of hard/strange–I mean, really what could a person say in five minutes that wouldn’t be something they’ve heard their entire lives?
You Marry Who You Date
Lengthen Your Stride
Remember who you are and what you stand for
If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear
(Add your own favorite slogan/scripture here)
I couldn’t sleep last night fretting about it. Some things I’ve been thinking about are: that it doesn’t matter what your parents do or say,or don’t do or say, you have to figure out for yourself what is true, what is right, and figure out how to make your will align with God’s will; that life is a test, we signed up for mortality with all its ugliness, and we need to get comfortable with imperfection of self and others both on micro/macro levels; slow and steady wins the race; and the idea from a statement by Elder Eyring-he said “So, the great test of this life is tosee whether we will hearken to and obey God’s commandments in the midst of the storms of life. [and this is the part i like] It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage.” So any ideas on what you think you might say, or would want your adolescent daughter to hear from someone besides you, I would love some input.
