Young Women and Love
If you don’t know already I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. AKA I am Mormon. I love my church! I love the youth in my church and I have had the opportunity to be working in Young Women’s as first counselor now for 1 year.
The Young Women are girls ages 12 to 18. I get the opportunity to help these girls grow and learn in our church. I really have such a strong love for these girls. While they may question why I tell them I love them all the time, I can tell you for me the love is no question. We are told to have Christ like love for everyone. We are told to love one another. John 13:34
If I got a talent in this world it is the ability to love. I loved children before I had my own. I worked in a day care and loved each an every one of those kids. Never thought that, “Hey that kid right there who does everything possible to be bad….yeah that one I don’t love.” Nope my thought was what can I do to let them know and see that I love them.
The same feeling has continued through my life. I have loved my own children as any mother loves their child, I have loved kids that I have taught over the years in primary and now I love my Young Women. I have a love that amazes even me sometime. I sometimes don’t know how I can love like I do. All I know is that it is a blessing from my Heavenly Father that I am surely glad I have.
Here are some of the girls I get to love…
What calling do you have in church? Are you able to show love for the people you work with at church?
