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!

Day of Faith for an LDS Girl

Rachel Esplin, a very cool LDS girl - who is also a 20-year old Harvard junior, speaks at the recent "Day of Faith" on campus, about her LDS upbringing. She also shares her beliefs about the Mormon faith, and about her testimony of Jesus Christ and the restoration of the gospel.

This LDS Girl, does an outstanding job of presenting in a simple and humble way, what she believes. I love her honesty in how she explains her feelings and understanding about the Mormon Church.

See if you can identify some of the powerful principles of the gospel that Rachel teaches in this video, and then note how she explains them. Every LDS Girls needs to develop the ability to discuss the principles of the gospel in simple ways. It's not required that you be a religious scholar by any means. But, if you truly desire to do the work in these last days, that we have been sent here to do - then it is important that we clearly understand the gospel ourselves. As we personally come to understand a principle of the gospel with such clarity, we too, can have those "small conversations" with others, about our beliefs. It is in this way, that we can help others to Come Unto Christ...

She is a young woman who knows. A young woman who was listening in SS, YW, Seminary, and Institute classes and received a strong foundation in her home. Then she made the personal effort it takes to build on that foundation and come to know the truth. "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them" Matt 7:20! As a mother and grandmother this makes me think of another great scripture: "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." 3John 1:4 What joyful parents she must have! :-) It is worth the time and effort to practice our religion personally and for our families and associates! Thank you so much for posting this story and video.
