This week was pretty filled with awesome... Sister Harding was sick 2 days, I am sick now..., 2 exchanges, 2 investigators off date, Sister's Conference, carved punkins... and I AM HAPPY!!!
I have to tell you about Sister's Conference. When President asked the STLs what we wanted to have him speak on the spirit took over my mouth (He does that sometimes...;) and i blurted "The role of women." He accepted and oh. my goodness. my perspective is forever changed by the Doctrine of Womanhood.
(oh and my training went super well too! I just went up with Sister Harding and Spazzed out about Companionship inventory.. how our words resonate at a certain frequency and we need to use them wisely.... yeah. I said that.... They loved it. Cause its true! :)
Moses 2-- God creating the earth. First began with grass, then to shrubs and trees. First created water life then moved to creeping things and mammals. There is a progression to it-- simple to complex. Then on the 6th day God creates man. First Adam, then Eve. Woman is God's Crowning Creation. God's Secret weapon. Prime. Last. Complete.
Priesthood's role is to Preside, Protect and Provide.
Preside does not mean to "be in charge" (that was always my thinking...) it is defined :to teach, bless, set in order. Each morning a Man's job is to get on his knees and ask "What should I teach? Help me to know what YOU would do. How would you serve her (wife) this day? How can I BLESS her life? What is out of order- give me the grace so I can change/repent."
Protect. Physically, spiritually. Act as a Priesthood Setinal for the home.
Provide. Physical and emotional need for wife and family.
The Priesthood was sent to man to protect the woman. God's jewel. It does not make sense that He would require His precious daughters to provide protection.... Priesthood is covenanting with God You will be what HE needs you to be. To get his daughters home to Him.
