As I have already witnessed by spending years at Girls Camp and with my job as a substitute Seminary teacher, the youth in this gospel of Jesus Christ are absolutely phenomenal. Hands down, the best ever. I am so looking forward to learning from the beautiful young ladies in my ward. (And yes, this means I get to go to camp this summer. Words cannot express how excited I am about that. :) :) :) )
But enough rambling now...the song I have chosen for today is the theme song for the youth this year. The worldwide theme for the youth of our church is "Ask of God" taken from the bible--
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
I love this concept and blessing of being able to ask God when we have questions on our hearts and minds. He is there waiting. Sometimes the answer does not come immediately and often times the answer is far from any that we were expecting. Sometimes the answer is just, "For now, you need to wait." (Ugh. I don't like receiving that answer.) But, I know that God does answer our prayers. He does hear each and every prayer whether it is shouted, spoken, whispered, or just uttered in the recesses of your mind. He is there. Ask of God.

Life has hit crazy overload around here and I am finding it harder and harder to blog more than once a week. But I am okay with that. I am anxiously engaged in good things, and although I love sharing light and goodness through blogging and social media, it is something that is going to have to be scaled way back at this time in my life. I have decided that I will only be focusing on sharing a new post every Sunday when I do the Songs for the Sabbath post. If I feel prompted to share other things during the week, then I know the Lord will help me have time for that in my schedule. This is all a part of turning my will to Him and following closely the promptings that I receive from His Holy Spirit.
Now, on to the song for today and man, is it a good one. I stumbled upon it today after having a prayer in my heart about what I could share today. This song was written by the fabulous Britt Nicole, with the cover being done by the equally fabulous, Mercy River. The four ladies that bring this song to life (Britt + the 3 Mercy River gals), have really brought a little piece of beautiful into this world.
The message is one that the women of this world need to hear. There is power in womanhood, especially when women come together in good and righteous causes.
The time has come to STAND, ladies.
STAND with the Savior.
STAND for truth and righteousness.
STAND for goodness and light.
STAND for decency in humanity.
STAND for love.
STAND by Mercy River (written by Britt Nicole)
It's one of the best Sundays of the year, my friends! It's Conference Sunday!
That means that this Songs for the Sabbath post is going to be short because I need to get off the computer and get settled into my bean bag for conference. The song I am sharing today was sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in one of the conference sessions yesterday. It is a simple song with a simple, yet powerful message.

Happy Conference Sunday, my friends!
I am loving my second chance at life.
