I have hours spent in the process of this and all of my designs.

They are all done manually. You MAY NOT copy, share or sell my digitized designs or reproduce them in any way including screen printing, Heat press vinyl, vinyl design or any printed material.. You may sell embroidered items that you make using my design. I recently read an article in the New York Times concerning a study which took place during the summer of A distinguished Notre Dame sociologist led a research team in conducting in-depth interviews with young adults across America.

I believe we can safely assume that the results would be similar in most parts of the world. In the rambling answers, … you see the young people groping to say anything sensible on these matters.

Who am I to say? I have no other way of knowing what to do but how I internally feel. Brethren, none within the sound of my voice should be in any doubt concerning what is moral and what is not, nor should any be in doubt about what is expected of us as holders of the priesthood of God. Despite what you may see or hear elsewhere, these laws are unchanging. As we go about living from day to day, it is almost inevitable that our faith will be challenged.

We may at times find ourselves surrounded by others and yet standing in the minority or even standing alone concerning what is acceptable and what is not. Do we have the moral courage to stand firm for our beliefs, even if by so doing we must stand alone?

As holders of the priesthood of God, it is essential that we are able to face—with courage—whatever challenges come our way. Remember the words of Tennyson: Increasingly, some celebrities and others who—for one reason or another—are in the public eye have a tendency to ridicule religion in general and, at times, the Church in particular. If our testimonies are not firmly enough rooted, such criticisms can cause us to doubt our own beliefs or to waver in our resolves.

Again, brethren, do we have the courage to stand strong and firm in the face of such difficult opposition? Navy boot camp was not an easy experience for me, nor for anyone who endured it. For the first three weeks I was convinced my life was in jeopardy. I shall ever remember when Sunday rolled around after the first week.

We received welcome news from the chief petty officer. Standing at attention on the drill ground in a brisk California breeze, we heard his command: I am going to relax! Then he barked out his next command: You are a Mormon, so you just stand here! Courageous and determined, yes—but alone. And then I heard the sweetest words I ever heard that chief petty officer utter. As we marched away, I thought of the words of a rhyme I had learned in Primary years before:.

Although the experience turned out differently from what I had expected, I had been willing to stand alone, had such been necessary. Since that day, there have been times when there was no one standing behind me and so I did stand alone. How grateful I am that I made the decision long ago to remain strong and true, always prepared and ready to defend my religion, should the need arise. Lest we at any time feel inadequate for the tasks ahead for us, brethren, may I share with you a statement made in by then-Church President Ezra Taft Benson as he addressed a large group of members in California.

Billions of the deceased and those yet to be born have their eyes on us. Make no mistake about it—you are a marked generation. The same thing happened in business meetings. I struggled to articulate my ideas, although I was sure they could have brought some new impulses. Why was it so difficult to speak out on the topics I was interested in?

Dare To Stand Out

What would others think of me? What if I said something stupid? What if they laughed? What if everybody stared at me? Starting at a very early age, we learn that standing out is not desirable. Many parents fear their offspring standing out in a way that might not be flattering, whereas when it comes to competing with others, kids are absolutely encouraged to stand out.

Few teachers manage to appreciate uniqueness, because it means work.

Dare to Stand Out | Queen of Your Own Life

But deep inside, we feel that something is missing. Daring to stand out means being your true self , speaking your mind, dressing the way you want, or laughing out loud, even if you're the only one who finds something funny. It means being different , following your dreams when no one believes in you, speaking up when no one else does, and making a difference in your life or the life of others by being who you are. We all have talents and aspirations, some small, some big.

Some might not be mainstream. This is when things start getting complicated and uncomfortable: We will never be able to please everyone. If you started to live the life you wanted, it might make them feel uncomfortable about themselves. You might lose some acquaintances or false friends, but true friends will encourage and support you. And a lot of people will admire you for your courage. Even better, you will be loved for who you are.
