Self Portrait Challenge: Introduce Yourself


This is the last week of introductions at self portrait challenge. Next month we start with a new theme...

This is a picture I took of myself at an activity we had with the young women. I am a youth leader in my church, and we have activities every Wednesday night as a youth group. Just for fun, here's another picture from that night.


I have been teaching these girls for the past three years close to every Sunday, give or take some breaks here and there. I love to teach. I'm not always an effective teacher. I have talked about a myriad of topics with them and they are bright and promising and happy. They think deeply (the older they are, the deeper they get), and can apply the scriptures into thier daily lives. They live in a way that is different that a lot of thier peers. It takes strength and resolve to live in such a way. I have spent hours upon hours with them over the weeks, so introducing them kind of introduces me as well. They make me laugh. I am impressed with them. I love them.
