My spirit has been completely edified after this weekend. This was a General Conference that was simply amazing due to the fact that the messages and counsel were direct and every one of the talks, I felt were written for me. As the conference weekend ended, I wasn't ready to step away from the table and be full. So I went to LDS.org and searched.
There are heavy things pondering on my mind. I feel that I am at a crossroads and trying to decide which path to take at this time of my life. I don't want to go any further than that because these are sacred feelings of my heart and spirit and I am not ready to talk about at this time.
One I will spill a bit is the thoughts of teaching my daughter about her role as a daughter of God and the example I set. We live in a world where womanhood is being attacked all the time and I am asking myself how can I protect myself and my daughter from the fiery darts that try to tear us down? I came across a talk from Patricia T. Holland that she wrote for the Ensign in 1987. This talk struck the chords of my heart as she addresses the problems of women. Even though this talk was written over 20 years ago, it applies today. I will read this talk to my daughter when she is older, until then, I will examine my own personal life to celebrate my role as a mother and a wife.
Here is the link to Sister Holland's talk that I think every woman should read!
