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!

LDS Girls Understanding Isaiah...?

What on earth must I be thinking... is it possible for LDS Girls to actually understand the Book of Isaiah from the Old Testament?

Isaiah is a pretty important guy really... in the Book of Mormon the prophet Nephi refers to him a lot. He even asks his brother Jacob to preach to the people from the words of Isaiah, asking them to "liken them unto themselves".

Jacob said, "And now, behold, I would speak unto you concerning things which are, and which are to come; wherefore, I will read you the words of Isaiah. And they are the words which my brother has desired that I should speak unto you. And I speak unto you for your sakes, that ye may learn and glorify the name of your God. And now, the words which I shall read are they which Isaiah spake concerning all the house of Israel; wherefore, they may be likened unto you, for ye are of the house of Israel. And there are many things which have been spoken by Isaiah which may be likened unto you, because ye are of the house of Israel."

You might not have recognized that passage because it is from 2Nephi...the part everyone skips... the Isaiah chapters. lol

But...guess what.... I found this really cool book on-line called Isaiah Insights to Teenage Temptations that is really rad!

A real "Cool LDS Girl" Michaela Stephens wrote the book with the following goal in mind:

To help you see how Isaiah's words apply to you and your temptations so that you will be able to...
  • Resist future temptations
  • Become more strengthened in the gospel
  • Learn to love and understand Isaiah
  • Be inspired to study Isaiah's words even more
  • Help you share everything you have learned in every opportunity you get
So go on over and check the book out... it rocks!

Let me know what you think of the book here.... share some insights about it...PALEEZE!

Michaela -

We are thrilled here at KooLDSgirlZ to let these amazing young women know that teenagers really can understand the prophet Isaiah and his teachings.

After all... the teachings of Isaiah have everything to do with these exact times that these LDS girls are living...

How cool is that?
