Today many sisters are being called to serve. Many more are preparing to serve. Not because they aren’t married or don’t have anything else to do, but they have the desire to serve the Lord. My parents support me, I am willing, worthy and have the faith that He will guide me, protect me and strengthen me. One reason that the Lord wants more sisters to serve is because within the next generation He will send His priesthood army to the earth. As we serve we do not represent our families, our friends, our branches, our wards, our communities or nations. Rather we represent Him(Jesus Christ). His purposes should be our purposes… His will should become our will- Elder Bednar.
This qoute makes me think a lot about about WHY I want to serve a mission. There’s a lot of reason actually, but there’s one reason stays central in my decision. I want to give back to my Savior. “He wants to send choice spirit children to mothers who have been prepared, properly tarined and taught in the gospel. What a better schooling can a mother have than the experience and growth she gains through serving a mission- President Gordon B. Hinckley.
Heavenly Father has given me all that I have to give Him a mere eighteen months of my life but it’s a small offering. I am choosing to serve to show gratitude to the Lord for not giving up on me or my family, for not resting until we had the church in our lives. I know this gospel is true, I have never known anything to be more true. I have a firm testimony of the healing power of the Atonement. I feel my Savior’s love for me more and more each day as I prepare myself to serve. I know that Christ died for me and that through obedience to His commandments, I can return to live with Heavenly Father one day.
