Where Do I Go From Here

First, So sorry for posting this above April's challenge! Every one look below and you will find April's challenge has been issued!

My non-fiction choice for this month was a hard one. Not that I couldn't find one, Cause I had several in mind But I wanted to pick one that would be interesting for other readers as well. I love autobiography's and poetry BUT again I wanted something that would appeal to other ladies of this club that would help. So I chose "Where Do I Go From Here" By Irene Ericksen & Jan Pinborough. This is a LDS self-help book for Young Women ages 16-Twenties. I HIGHLY recommend this book if you have sisters or have a calling in Young women. And if you don't, still read it. It's a short read but it touches on all the questions that we as women face. Missions such as dating, marriage, a mission for the church, motherhood, self-worth, church callings. All of these things that we must ask our selves at one point or another. The best way to sum it up is from the intro on the back cover:

"Where do I go from Here?" --It's a question almost every young adult woman asks herself in the years following her walk across the stage at high school graduation. What comes next? An education? A full time mission? Marriage? A family? A career? The choices are not always predictable or easy to make. In where do I go from here Young adult women are invited to step back and consider their gifts, their challenges, and the needs their world and thus discover a sense of their own personal mission."

I love the quote Sheri L. Dew makes in the book..."If there were ever a time when the Lord needed us to have a clear vision of who we are, where we are, and what is important, it is now."
I loved this book even though I'm 22 and its been about 5 yrs. since graduation, It brings value to your self worth and challenges you to reach inside and become the Woman Heavenly Father knows you can be. Even if you are married it brings sweetness to the meaning of marriage and integrity of womanhood and motherhood. I will be using this book with "hopefully" my future daughters someday. If you have a calling in Young Women or just need a little reminder of who you are, this is a great quick read to enlighten your load. This has a been a great challenge and I look forward to the next!
