Be True

I'm so grateful for the opportunity my children had last weekend of attending Youth Conference.
#2 and #3 went. (The age limit was 14-18)
The theme was Be True

Be True to the Strength of You-
"You must discover who you are and who you can become to accomplish your divine mission. . .Each of you must find out for yourselves your relationship with God and to 'Be True' to your foreordained missions."

Be True to Zion- 
Serve others and build others up

Be True to the Savior-
What distractions are keeping me from coming fully unto Christ?
(They talked a lot about technology, and cell phones)
(Can you spy #3?)
After three days of service projects, speakers, and comradery with their peers, my children came home testimonies strengthened, ready to take on the world!
"And they were all young men, and they were exceedingly valiant for courage, and also for strength and activity; but behold, this was not all-they were men who were TRUE at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted.  Yea, they were men of truth and soberness, for they had been taught to keep the commandments of God and to walk uprightly before him." -Alma 53:20-21
Speaking of Testimony Builders, this Playdoh playing guy left yesterday for EFY.  He gets to celebrate his birthday there.  Lucky Guy!
