This is why I love the gospel

This semester has been a real struggle for me. I have been really hard on myself for stupid reasons and it has just lead me to be really depressed. It has been getting worse with finals just around the corner and all the things I need to get done but just can't find the time. Then today in Relief Society we had a lesson on self-worth and it was exactly the boost I needed. The spirit was so strong and testified to me that my Heavenly Father loves ME. No matter what I do, no matter how well I do in school, no matter what I look like.

He Loves me.

That thought alone was more comfort to me than anything said by words. I am so grateful for those in my ward with such sweet spirits that contributed to that lesson and helped to make the spirit in there so strong.

I want to let all of you know who are reading this that I have such a strong testimony of this. He loves each and every one of us. No matter what you have done in the past and will love you even when you mess up in the future. Because we do, we are human and we make mistakes but He still loves us anyway. To all of you women out there you are a Daughter of God and you are beautiful and if nothing else He loves you. And really in the end that's what should matter most. Don't listen to what other people say about you or think you should act. Just be the best you, and that is what makes you the most beautiful.

Hold your head high good times will come your way if you just trust in Him. He loves you and don't forget it!
