LDS girls, Do LDS Things, In LDS Ways... and this is exactly what makes an LDS girl, different from their peers. In a world, where most girls have no direction and no real reason for being "good" - LDS girls actually DO!

LDS girls who know who they are - make better choices.
So, I suppose you could apply the saying that "knowledge is power"? But even more important than a general statement like that... is knowing that the knowledge you embrace, just happens to be - the TRUTH.

LDS girls operate, and therefore make choices - that are anchored in eternal truths. Do LDS girls make mistakes? You bet they do! But after they hit themselves upside the head a bit for doing so - they will most always learn from those mistakes.

How can a girl know what is right, if no one ever offers her truth - by which to compare and analyze her choices, actions and the results that are caused by her use of agency? LDS girls are blessed to have been offered by loving parents, leaders and living prophets today - the TRUTH.

I honor these LDS girls from their teen years, and up to the time where they make the most important decisions of a young women today. Education, relationships and ultimately marriage and family. LDS young women are making good choices, based on their very personal experiences of utilizing the truth that they know, against that which the world would have them believe.

LDS girls know how to "Stand For Something" in a world that is fast becoming extremely wayward and lost to moral values.

So yes... LDS Girls Do LDS Things in LDS Ways, because they KNOW!

TWILIGHT and LDS Girls - What's UP With That?

I have finally decided to give in to all the HYPE about the book - TWILIGHT. Yes, I know - there are now three books in the TWILIGHT series - with the fourth coming out this Saturday. I understand that I am behind - but stay with me, okay?

I first heard about the book Twilight, from dare I say -- a lot of really kool LDS girls, who attend the Singles Branch - where my husband and I are shepherds. (like the coolest job in the Church)

These LDS girls, that are normally rational and reasonably thinking young women - upon bringing up the subject of TWILIGHT amongst themselves - completely lost all control of their senses! I just sat there, observing the excited conversation that they were exchanging between each other... and then I piped in and ask the golden question -

"What's twilight and who in the heck in Edward"?

Mere words really cannot help you visualize the immediate frenzy that immediately ocured - with that one "Golden" question. Missionaries could only hope for such a contact as myself. I was up for conversion and every single girl who had read TWILIGHT knew it!

I fast became, for these now insane LDS girls - their newest VICTIM to join with them in the insanity that seems to be sweeping the WORLD with TWILIGHT MANIA!

Well, to make a short story even a bit shorter... after a few weeks of listening to these really awesome LDS girls, assure me that the book was totally clean, and amazingly awesome - LdsNana picked it up at Barnes and Noble.

That's right -- I am now reading the first book in the very popular TWILIGHT series... TWILIGHT.

I now know WHO this EDWARD is... and apparently he is DANGEROUS!

Oh my goodness, Twilight is in the air and it is bewitching.

A vampire that is sexy? Honestly I really have a hard time believing it! lol Personally a werewolf is so much more believable!

I always did root for the underdog however!

LDS girls are going crazy over Twilight everywhere... what is up with that? lol

Hi Michelle:-)

Yes you are... one of those insane girls who have captured my attention - and the reason I am reading it now. LOL

Larilyn too! You girls are normally rational LDS Young Women -- so one must wonder why all the fuss.

I'm excited to find out why?

I love LDS girls and think that the young women of the Mormon Church are the best girls around.

Stay with me on this Twilight thing... I think we are going to have a lot to talk about.
