Look for Rainbows, Look for Stars

 

Look for Rainbows, Look for Stars

I love this quote so much! It inspires me every time I see it! Look for the good in everything – when life’s down and when life is good! Whether it’s rainbows after rain, stars in the night, smiles from your mom, blowing bubbles with your siblings, or eating bacon for breakfast! 😀

If you are at peace, you are living in the present…

Sometimes I look in the past and think about things that I should’ve done, or wish still had, but the past made me who I am. The past made you who you are, and everything that you know.  We should also be careful to not worry about the future and question God’s plan for us. It’s ok to have goals/plans, but at the same time we need to live in the moment. We will never know when it’s our last day, so let’s live each day to the fullest…

Happy New Year! (2018)

Wow, It’s a new year! I am super excited for new opportunities, experiences, and growth that I’ll go through this year. I am also looking forward to the new content we’ll have for you this year. If you have been following our social media accounts then you must know about a DaySpring quiz you can take. Basically you answer about 7 questions and then it gives you a word to focus on for the new year. Click here to take the 2018 word of truth quiz. I think it’s a pretty cool concept, because sometimes we can get overwhelmed by goals that we’ve written down and then end up not achieving them. So, by focusing on one word, it’ll be easy to remember and it could be something to ponder and pray about.

I wish everyone a blessed and happy new year! Let us know in the comments what may be some of your goals/plans for 2018!

Thanksgiving – Let’s have an attitude of gratitude //D&C 59:7

Here is a beautiful video of Thomas S. Monson sharing his testimony of being grateful.

There are so many things to be grateful for that sometimes we can become blind to it, and only see the bad. It’s important for us to remember to always see the good, to see what we do have, then we’ll truly be happy. We must not fall into being in that negative state of mind, because then we aren’t being grateful.

What are you grateful for? List some in the comments below!

I’ll go where you want me to go…

This is a video that I watched for my seminary assignment. It’s a really powerful video because it shows that when you help someone you can teach them the gospel just by being an example. It actually made me tear up a bit, so I thought I should share it with you all since it’s an older video, and you might’ve not seen it yet…Enjoy!

Comment below if you had any experiences before where you helped someone that led them to the gospel.

Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls

This post is similar to Annale’s post last week called “Being Christlike is Beautiful“. Sometimes we worry about whether we are pretty or not. I think every girl struggles with this – I know I do. I love this quote because it says happy girls are the prettiest girls. True happiness comes from choosing the right and following Jesus Christ. When we are truly happy, we will be truly pretty. As we try to follow Christ we will become prettier along each step of the way. 😀

I’d also like to share a video that’s called “Deep Beauty” (which has been shared on Marigold Girls before about a year ago but if you didn’t see it then you can click on that link) Think about this quote while you watch the video.

Being Christlike is Beautiful!

Most girls our age think about boys in one way or another. A lot of girls try to show off for boys, dress immodestly, etc. Other girls like boys, but don’t make a big deal about it. Some girls don’t worry about boys at all. I believe it doesn’t matter at this point whether you like boys or not. As long as you are always being kind and remember who you are, it doesn’t make a big difference.

I just found this awesome video I’d like to share with you! In it, boys (from our LDS church) are interviewed about what they like in girls. it isn’t what you might expect! What is important to them are things like being kind and caring, willing to share her testimony, dressing modestly, etc. Many girls think it’s all about being the prettiest or the smartest, but these boys don’t believe that. They care about a girl who knows that she is as a daughter of God, and finds confidence in that – not what the world tells her. This video taught me a lot, and the advice from these boys is going to help me be more confident in being myself. If you’d like to watch it, here it is:

Happy Grandparents Day! (9/10/17) 

Did you know today is grandparents day? The funny thing is that I had my grandma and grandpa come over today and we realized that today is a holiday! I encourage you to take extra time to either send them a sweet letter or give them a big hug and tell them how much you’re grateful for them. Because you’ll never know how much longer they’ll be here on Earth. It’s best to spend those precious moments with them and to be present. Our grandparents raised our parents! If it weren’t for them we wouldn’t be here. 

A couple of years ago my grandfather almost died from a terrible sickness…I am so grateful that he is still alive. 

Let’s express our gratitude!
