It's not something I share often, or rather never, but sometimes I get questions about why I blog and the things I chose to say? The reality is that often I get strong impressions about what to say and when to say them. I don't know why, but I've learned not to ask why and just do.
My dear sisters, may I suggest to you something that has not been said before or at least in quite this way. Much of the major growth that is coming to the Church in the last days will come because many of the good women of the world (in whom there is often such an inner sense of spirituality) will be drawn to the Church in large numbers. This will happen to the degree that the women of the Church reflect righteousness and articulateness in their lives and to the degree that the women of the Church are seen as distinct and different—in happy ways—from the women of the world. … Thus it will be that female exemplars of the Church will be a significant force in both the numerical and the spiritual growth of the Church in the last days.
This is one of my favorite talks, but I have never thought about it in relation to blogging, but it makes me immediately think about my patriarchal blessing and things I'm told there (not about blogging). Something to reflect on today.
