LOVE THIS GIRL!! "Tattooed Mormon" a very cool blog about being a convert - What an eye-opening read about not judging others by their appearance! If someday I am in the young woman's as a leader or advisor, I am SO sharing this story with them!
"...If we are to search for real light and eternal certainties, we have to pray as the ancients prayed. We are women now, not children, and we are expected to pray with maturity. The words most often used to describe urgent, prayerful labor are wrestle, plead, cry, and hunger. In some sense, prayer may be the hardest work we ever will engage in, and perhaps it should be." --Patricia Holland (Podcast with Elder and Sister Holland)
"You know, my hair is very upsetting to people, but it's upsetting on purpose. It is important to look old so that the young will not be afraid of dying. People don't like old women. We don't honor age in our society, and we certainly don't honor it in Hollywood." -Tyne Daly
