Wednesday 29 March 2017
Katie Knight ask me a month ago to talk to the 2nd ward's young women about being modest. It was to be on the 29th of March. I had made another power point and David Brown helped me again.
I wore a shirt and sweater because the Young Women's Presidency ask the girls to be dressed up in their Sunday best. They would be doing a photo shot and wanted the girls to look their best. When I arrived they hadn't prepared anyplace for me to stand to give my talk. So I gather some tables and they gave me a table cloth to put on it. I went to the relief society room and got the mike so everyone could hear my talk. Katie Knight who was a councilor was in levies and I ask her why she was and she said because she has to take down everything and didn't want to get her dress dirty. She knew she had made a wrong decision but her house is too far away to go home and change. The other councilor came a little late and she was in pants also and had her little daughter with her. The president was busy doing something and never arrived until my talk was over. All the girls came with nicely dressed modest cloths but two of them. Their hair was curled and they looked awesome for their pictures. Katie Knight's daughter showed up a little late and by the time the girls got there is was 20 minutes past the time to start at 7:00 pm. It was a totally different feeling than when I gave my talk to the 8th Ward. I did feel like the girls listened to me but after only two young women told me how good my talk was. Katie did bring me a small gift to thank me for speaking to the girls. I felt like the spirit was helping with the talk and I have noticed at Sundays that the girls are modest in their dress. I encouraged them to come to the Temple and do baptisms because the Lord wants them there. They are coming in May to do Baptism and I hope they will feel the spirit that is in the temple.
