Story from Debra
Help the girls see that if everyone sat around waiting for everyone else to make them feel good, no one would ever be satisfied, but if we instead thought how we could bless someone else’s life EVERYONE would feel great for helping someone else instead of worrying about themselves.
When I was 23 I moved to my husband’s hometown and not one person was friendly to me in the whole town, except one young man at the grocery store who ?was in my ward. ?The entire town of Rigby, Idaho was totally unwelcoming to me except him. ?I hated Rigby and couldn’t wait to leave. ?Then I was put in charge of the RS birthday celebration and planned an activity that included everyone. ?I got in touch with each sister in the ward to share her talents/skills/interests in some way that evening, and everyone was SO thrilled that I was including them, the event was a terrific success and everyone felt so loved and appreciated and when it was time for me to move, everyone cried and begged me to stay. ?I’d been waiting to be welcomed, and ended up making a difference for others and fell in love with Rigby as a result.
