Be-you-tiful Evening in Excellence

Had a great day with the young women
of our Stake at our
Evening in Excellence.
  We got to eat yummy food and see amazing projects that they've been working on.
We had chalkboards signs all around the gym with quotes about inner beauty
and the importance of how our
 Heavenly Father
looks at the inner not the outer beauty.

 I am always amazed at
 the projects that our young women are doing. 
 They are so wonderful and motivated
 to do what is good and right.

The food was delicious with 
soups and salads and then these
 gorgeous cheesecakes
 for dessert.
We set the tables simply with
pom poms and little glass vases.
Sometimes the simple things can be the most beautiful things.
I loved all the sayings

 but the one that has touched me the most was the one that said,
" If the world was blind, what would you look like?"
It has inspired me to make sure my
words and actions
are a true reflection of who I am.

I also talked with the young women about how we might have pinterest boards that have to do with our outer beauty ( like fashion or hair and makeup), but how many of us have a board that has to do with inner beauty.
I didn't have one myself, but I do now and I challenged each of them to start a board that would help them remember their importance to their Heavenly Father and to focus on the things that really matter.
Overall I think it was a great day. 
 I love serving in my calling with the youth,
they truly are
 amazing and inspiring
 young women.
