I can't help but gush again about the Relief Society Broadcast on Saturday night.
I have a strong testimony of the messages given below from the broadcast. I know that I am a daughter of God with a divine nature and purpose. I have never been more sure of anything in my life. I know that each woman on this earth is a daughter of God with her own divine nature and special purpose. I know my Savior lives and loves me. Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father see my potential and love me unconditionally. I want to share that love of Christ with everyone in my life. Nothing makes me more empowered than knowing my individual worth. You have a Savior who loves you and sees far more potential in you than you will ever be able to see in yourself. If we try to understand even a small sliver of what that means, I testify that our lives can change. Light will pour into your life. His love will rain down on you. I'm speaking so ridiculously cheesy about it, but I don't care because every ounce of it is true! I had to figure it out the hard way. I think we all have to figure it out for ourselves though, and that will make us stronger, gentler, more humble, and compassionate women. Please take a short time to listen to the messages of these disciples of Christ. Their words come from the Lord, and I know they're true!
