A Woman Of God Who Is Thrilled To Be Who She Is!

In the year 2000, Sheri L. Dew said these powerful words:

“No woman is a more vibrant instrument in the hands of the Lord than a woman of God who is thrilled to be who she is…Standing tall begins with our own conversion, for when we taste the gospel’s “exceeding joy” we want to share it. The casseroles and quilts we have made to relieve suffering are splendid acts of kindness, but no service–I repeat, no service–compares with that of leading someone to Christ…When we live like disciples of Christ should live, when we aren’t just good but happy to be good, others will be drawn to us because we are “distinct and different–in happy ways,”…I have come to know for myself that this is Their work and Their glory and that we are the most blessed of all women to have such a vital part in it. May we lift our “voices as with the sound of a trump” (D&C 42:6). May we find joy as we stand tall and stand together. And may we “cheerfully do all things that lie in our power” (D&C 123:17), and then stand still to see the arm of God revealed as His work goes forward boldly and nobly…till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done” (Stand Tall and Stand Together, Sheri L. Dew).

What a wonderful challenge Sheri Dew gave to all of us, both male and female. Sometimes as we traverse in this mortality, our burden can become heavy with grief, disappointment, and sorrow. Let us not discard joy along the way as it will lighten our load and bring solace to our souls.   Being joyful that we are followers of Jesus Christ is paramount in being ‘the light on the hill.'(Matt. 5:14)
