I’m Ashley, I’m the blogger behind The power of one Girl at ashleyfrederickson.blogspot.com.
I love empowering teen girls to be their best self and I run the instagram and twitter account @powerofonegirl
where I send inspiration and host a #PowerOfOnechallenge to inspire and empower YOU to be your best self
in every area of your life. I am a college student at the University of Utah.
I love speaking to groups of Young Women and my dream is to write for the New Era and speak at EFY.
I have a very special place in my heart for LDS Young Women. I have had to battle and overcome shyness, low self-esteem, failures, heartbreaks, and many trials. I know how hard it is to be a valiant young woman in this day. I also know how valuable each and every girl is to Heavenly Father's kingdom.
I absolutely loved President Nelson's talk, he said some pretty powerful words!
As President Nelson was speaking of covenant keeping women, he said "It would be impossible to measure the influence that such women have, not only on families but also on the Lord's Church, as wives, mother, and grandmothers; as sisters and aunts; as teachers and leaders; and especially as exemplars and devout defenders of the faith."
You may not be a wife, a mom, or a grandma yet...but he is talking about YOU! Don't underestimate YOUR influence, because it can't be measured! So keep on moving forward and doing what you believe. You are strong and an example to more than you will ever know as you keep your covenants!
I love that he speaks of the power YOU have.
He makes it clear that girls and women understand that they have power to draw good women of the world to church.
It is through YOUR...
YOU are an example, please understand this!!
President Nelson then declares;
We need women who...
Know how to make important things happen by their faith!
Are courageous defenders of morality + families in a sin-sick world!
Are devoted to shepherding God’s children along the covenant path toward exaltation!
Know how to receive personal revelation!
Understand the power and peace of the temple endowment!
Know how to call upon the powers of heaven to protect and strengthen children + families!
He is calling YOU to action!! Make this list a priority of things to work on, for you have POWER! It's in YOU, it always has been, and as you seek Heavenly Father, you will receive great strength to reach your potential.
What would stepping forward look like in YOUR life? What would you do differently?
"Take your rightful and needful place in your home, in your community, and in the Kingdom of God - more than you ever have before."
That's three places that YOU have power to make a difference. Which basically includes EVERYWHERE!! President Nelson believes in YOU so much and so do I!
Remember who you are, don't forget your worth, and then take a STAND and being the GIRL God is depending on. He needs you! Believe He needs you and then get to work, for you were BORN to make a difference!
