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!

Confessions of a Shopaholic - Movie Review

This movie is based on the very popular book, also called - "Confessions of a Shopaholic".

Rebecca Bloomwood
is an adorable girl, living in New York, who has one tiny problem that has quickly gotten out of control -- she is addicted to shopping, and is being stalked by one very persistent debt collector. She currently works as a journalist for a gardening magazine, but longs to land a job with a top fashion magazine. Meanwhile, through a little bit of her own creativity, she is hired by this adorable guy who is the editor of a financial magazine. Although, she considers this job a stepping-stone to bigger things.

Rebecca ends up writing an article about the pitfalls of shopping, as it relates to finances - and it is a huge hit. Literally overnight, she becomes all the rage in the industry. However, no one except for her loyal room mate knows that she is in major debt, herself.

As Rebecca rises to the top of the finance industry, her secret debt problems are about to completely unravel - and they do. She risks losing everything, including her romance with the editor of her magazine, and her opportunity to land that fashion magazine job, that she desperately wants.

When everything finally hits the fan, and she is exposed to everyone around her - Rebecca is forced to look at her life, and make some very hard decisions about what is most important in life.

I really enjoyed this movie on many levels. What I most appreciated, is the fact that although the world of fashion and shopping were glamorized as we often see in our own world - we are also taken on a journey of personal discovery, with Ms. Bloomwood.

"Confessions of a Shopaholic" is a delightful movie, that is very appropriate for young girls. It is rated PG, and I would highly recommend seeing it.

I really like movies where we can see ourselves, and laugh -- and then have the ability to put things into proper perspective. So many movies today, emphasize among other things, a lack of values and send so many wrong messages. "Confessions of a Shopaholic" is one of the few movies out there, that helps us to see things, as they really are...

If you've seen the movie, I would love to hear what you thought about it?
