"Be Strong and of a Good Courage..."

Our Young Women retreat for church this year is themed after the scripture, "Be Strong and of a Good Courage". Our Stake has chosen the movie "The Wizard of Oz" to serve as an analogy of courage, faith and perseverance while choosing to be compassionate. I have been asked to put together the spiritual program for the retreat... and above is a still I have made for the evening program.

Taking time...

When one finds oneself immersed in constant serviceable activities (i.e. marriage or motherhood) one may find that it is extremely difficult to make time for oneself... but it is SO important to make time. Making time... that may be the wrong phrase; one may have to take time from ones serviceable endeavors to be (dare I say) selfish and build on one's own talents. It will be as hard as carving ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics into golden tablets... but it will bring you similar peace - to know you are making room in your life for YOU!
