Every week, I have the opportunity to teach the youth more about the Savior. I am finding that the more I study, the more I seek, the more answers to my own questions I receive. One of the things that we have been teaching the girls is how to become more like Him. I was able to teach the lesson on what it means to take upon yourself His name.
I think when we realize that we are all an example, all the time, no matter if we think anyone is watching or not, that is when we start to become more like Him. When we are kind even though someone is not kind to us, when we are happy even when we want to cry, when we help others even when it is not the popular thing to do, all those are ways in which we start to become a little more like Him.
I want the girls to understand how much He loves them. How much He gave for them and how very much He wants them to return home to Him. I want them to know that their actions are always a choice; a choice to be more like Him, or a choice to turn their backs on His way. It can be hard to go against the things in life that are popular. It can be hard, but it is also so very worth the effort.
