While preparing a lesson on service for the girls yesterday, I came across an address given by Dieter F. Uchtdorf about the powerful influence women can be as they serve and teach and love in this world. A gentle reminder:
"Sisters, you are endowed with a divine birthright. You are the real builders of nations wherever you live. As you live up to this mission, in whatever life circumstance you find yourself–as a wife, as a mother, as a single mother, as a divorced woman, as a widowed or single woman–the Lord our God will open up responsibilities and blessings far beyond your ability to imagine.
RIse to the potential within you, but don't feel guilty or dwell on thoughts of failure. Don't compare yourself with others. Do the best you can and the Lord will provide the rest. Have faith and confidence in Him, and you will see miracles happen in your life and the lives of your loved ones."
