Who You Are

A surprising truth that I've learned recently is that I love my Primary calling.  Those lessons aren't written for children, they're written for me.  Yesterday we talked about our premortal life and how Jesus volunteered to be our Savior because he loves us so much.  And even though I've known this all my life, it hit me:  God is the father of my spirit!  Jesus is my older brother!  They both love me and KNOW me.  I'm not just another face in a crowd of billions, I'm known and loved and I have a purpose and a part to play here on earth.

There's a song on the Hilary Weeks album that Angie gave me that just sums this up perfectly.  It's called "Who You Are"

I know you wonder if you'll ever have a day
When the kids stay calm, the laundry's done and the dishes are put away
And sometimes you feel like your days are spent and gone
And the question running through your mind is what have I gotten done?
And when you finally have a moment to slow down
At the end of your day, I know Father would say

Believe in what you're doing
Believe in who you are
Hold tight to the truth that you're a daughter of God
Believe in who you're becoming
Believe in who you are

It may seem simple - all the little things you do
But the lives you touch matter so much
And there's no one else like you
And Father needs you to stand tall and faithful
To be all you can be
Oh, if you could see what He sees, you'd

Believe in what you're doing
Believe in who you are
Hold tight to the truth that you're a daughter of God
Believe in who you're becoming
Believe in who you are

When it's hard to believe in yourself
And you feel like you're beginning to doubt
Remember

He believes in what you're doing
He believes in who you are
Don't lose sight of the truth that you're a daughter of God
That He believes in who you're becoming
He believes in who you are

I believe.

This post makes me miss my Primary calling, I think that's my favorite place to be!
