Be Strong...

"Finally, my [sisters], be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." - Ephesians 6: 10-12

"The war goes on.  It is waged across the world over the issues of agency and compulsion.  It is waged by an army of missionaries over the issues of truth and error.  It is waged in our own lives, day in and day out, in our homes, in our work, in our school associations; it is waged over questions of love and respect, of loyalty and fidelity, of obedience and integrity.  We are all involved in it - [women and girls], each of us.  We are winning, and the future never looked brighter."
- President Gordon B. Hinckley

The war is here, we are fighting it every day.  We know one thing for certain and that is that God's side WILL win.  Girls, I love you!  It's time for camp!!  Come and join us and enlist in God's Army and His cause.  Come and learn how to arm yourselves against the power of the destroyer and leave camp "Battle Ready".  We need an Army to stand up for truth and righteousness in this world.  We need YOU!  
- Love, Sister Landers

Be Still...

When people fight in wars, they take breaks from the fighting so they can regain their strength. Racers and exercise enthusiasts give their muscles breaks so they can build back up. After the Youth Cultural Celebration I bet more than a few of you slept well...But with the battle between ourselves and the world, do we take appropriate "breaks?" Do we turn off electronics, kneel on our knees and refresh our testimonies and replenish our spiritual strength? We need to take time to be still, to quietly build our our inner reserves so we may fight again when needed.

Be still, and know that I am God.
