  • When I was recently assigned to a conference in the Mission Viejo

  • California Stake,

  • I was touched by an account of their four-stake New Year's Eve youth dance.

  • Following the dance, a purse was found with no outside identification.

  • I share with you part of what Sister Monica Sedgwick,

  • the Young Women president in the Laguna Niguel stake, recorded:

  • "We didn't want to pry;

  • this was someone's personal stuff!

  • So we gingerly opened it and grabbed the first thing that was on top.

  • Hopefully, it would identify her. It did, but in another way.

  • It was a For the Strength of Youth pamphlet. Wow!

  • This told us something about her.

  • Then we reached in for the next item, a little notebook.

  • Surely this would give us answers,

  • but not the kind we were expecting.

  • The first page was a list of favorite scriptures.

  • There were five more pages of carefully written scriptures and personal notes."

  • The sisters immediately wanted to meet this stalwart young woman.

  • They returned to that purse to identify its owner.

  • They pulled out some breath mints, soap, lotion, and a brush.

  • I loved their comments:

  • "Oh, good things come out of her mouth;

  • she has clean and soft hands; and she takes care of herself."

  • They eagerly awaited the next treasure.

  • Out came a clever little homemade coin purse made from a cardboard juice

  • carton,

  • and there was some money in the pocket.

  • They exclaimed, "Ahh, she's creative and prepared!"

  • They felt like little children on Christmas morning.

  • What they pulled out next surprised them even more:

  • a recipe for Black Forest chocolate cake

  • and a note to make the cake for a friend's birthday.

  • They almost screamed,

  • "She's a HOMEMAKER! Thoughtful and

  • service minded."

  • Then, yes,

  • finally some identification.

  • The youth leaders said they felt greatly blessed "to observe the quiet example of a young

  • lady

  • living the gospel."

  • This account illustrates the commitment of our young women to Church standards.

  • They are incredible!
