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 Who Understand the Power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ

A dear friend of mine just sent this to me, and I wanted to share it with all of you cool LDS girls. Perhaps you have read this before...

It is my prayer, that each LDS girl, will come to understand the universal ability of the Atonement of Jesus Christ - to cleanse each one of us personally. When we understand the power of the Atonement in our own lives - we come to accept that same power in and for those around us. How grateful each one of us should be, for our Savior Jesus Christ, His Grace and Mercy - of which we are all recipients.

It is because of Jesus Christ, that each one of us are able to repent and progress in this life. It is important to know, that each one of us are a child of God, and that the Atonement is for everyone - regardless of what they may have done, etc...


One night in a church service a young woman felt the tug of God

at her heart.

She responded to God's call and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior.

The young woman had a very rough past, involving alcohol,

drugs, and prostitution.

But, the change in her was evident. As time went on she became

a faithful member of the church.

She eventually became involved in the ministry,

teaching young children.

It was not very long until this faithful young woman

had caught the eye and heart of the pastor's son.

The relationship grew and they began to make wedding plans.

This is when the problems began.

You see, about one half of the church did not think that a woman

with a past such as hers was suitable for a pastor's son.

The church began to argue and fight about the matter.

So they decided to have a meeting.

As the people made their arguments and tensions increased,

the meeting was getting completely out of hand.

The young woman became very upset about all the things

being brought up about her past.

As she began to cry the pastor's son stood to speak.

He could not bear the pain it was causing his wife to be.

He began to speak and his statement was this:

'My fiancee's past is not what is on trial here.

What you are questioning is the ability of the blood of Jesus

to wash away sin.

Today you have put the blood of Jesus on trial.

So, does it wash away sin or not?'

The whole church began to weep as they realized that they had been
slandering the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past

and use it as a weapon against our brothers and sisters.

Forgiveness is a very foundational part of the Gospel

of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If the blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completely

then it cannot cleanse us completely.

If that is the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble.

What can wash away my sins?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus! End of case!!!!

'Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee

he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.'

Psalm 55:23

LDS girls
who have come to understand the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ - are blessed with a peace that is not of this world. As you seek the Lord in your daily lives, and repent of that which is needful for yourself - you will begin to notice an increase of love for others.

As we feel the love that our Savior has for us - we know also, that this love extends to others as well. I believe that LDS girls who know the Savior and His Redeeming love - develop a greater love for others.

It is this Christlike love, which LDS girls focus on developing for others... that also allows them to love themselves even more. Learning to accept ourselves and others - is one of the great evidences of a testimony of Jesus Christ and His Atoning Power.
