Back in February Dave and I heard some great things about the movie "Hidden Figures." So we decided we'd better take our girls.
...which seems like a simple task, but it's not, even when we have done our best to clear Monday nights for Family Home Evening.
But and we snuck them out anyway, and although we got home a little later than we hoped, we sure loved that movie.
As I looked down our row at them in that movie theater, the glow of the screen lighting up their faces, I felt such a deep love for them.
And for the fact that God sent me so many of them.
In a world where there is some confusion and discord about the power of women, how I hope these girls of mine can feel that divine spark within them, just as the women in that movie did.
I hope that as they grow, that they can care more about turning out, rather than turning in, that they can let those lights that are so bright within them shine out to make a difference in the world in their own unique way. And that they can find joy in the exertion of that shining.
And I hope that they will know, that no matter what happens in life, God's hand is always stretched out to them. And that to Him, they are always enough.
I didn't get the chance to listen to General Women's Conference yet because I was away from Internet this last weekend, but I can't wait to listen...hopefully for some of it, snuggled up with those beautiful girls of mine I adore.
