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!

Come Up To The Mountain- The Oquirrh Mountain LDS Temple Celebration

This August, the 130th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will be dedicated in South Jordan, Utah. It will be the 13th temple located in Utah and is called the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. “Oquirrh” is a Goshute Indian word meaning “wooded mountain” or “shining mountains”. It is pronounced “oak-rr”.

The youth of the surrounding area have been anxiously awaiting the dedication of this temple and have been involved by participating in a grand celebration held at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City on May 29-30. They have practiced their performances for months to be ready for the event. Not only have they practiced but they have become involved in a media presentation of the event for the entire world to see. A blog called Come up to the Mountain was formed to inform and include anyone, in any area, in the celebration. They have even started a project called “What will I give” to coincide with the temple dedication.

In their own way, these cool LDS youth have made the Oquirrh Mountain Temple a part of their lives. In what way can you make the Temple a part of yours?
