A Woman of Faith

A few weekends ago I was sick, and so stayed home from church, and read scriptures and gospel study notes from my university days.  I came across notes I’d jotted from a talk by Margaret Nadauld, who at the time was the president of the world wide Young Women’s organization of our church.  Here are some of my favorite things she had to say:

“A woman of faith trusts God and faces adversity with hope. She knows of His interest in her life. She knows that He knows her…

“A woman of faith is confident because she understands the divine plan of our Heavenly Father and her role to bless lives. She is confident that any sacrifice she makes is worth something in an eternal sense. She knows about sacrifice from knowing of the life of the Savior. She knows that her sacrifices may be small by comparison, but she knows that Heavenly Father understands and values what she does to strengthen her home and her family and the world in which she lives.”

Reading these words encourages and uplift me, and remind me of what I’m striving for.  Yes, sometimes my fears get the better of my faith. When I make prayer and reading the word of God important, I feel the gentle peaceful feeling of God’s guiding hand, and know that He will give me strength beyond my own to do all He asks of me.
