Girls Empowered

Every Monday I have the opportunity of going to a middle school here in Provo and being a mentor to this middle school girl. We talk about issues that every girl faces or will face sometime in her life. We help encourage them to have the desire to gain a higher education and to be happy with who they are and know their potential as girls. 

It is an awesome program. I think it is in fact helping me more than my girl. haha She is awesome and already knows all these things. I am so impressed at a young age how much determination and confidence she has. She has definitely taught me a lot and I am so grateful for that. 

I became extremely grateful this week when I went. At first, I honestly did not want to go. It had been a rough couple of days, but I decided to still go and keep the commitment I had made. And I was sure glad I did. It helped me remember that the best thing I can do is stop worrying about myself, my problems, my heartaches and help someone else. Whether she really needs it or not, I felt like I was doing some good. It helped me remember the important things in life. I am ever so grateful! 

we really are.
