Last week I was blessed to camp for a few days with the young women in my ward (church congregation).
I went to girl's camp last year, but this year was different. Last year, there were only 4 girls who came to camp; this year we had 12 girls (10 from our ward and then 2 friends). Last year I barely knew the girls since I was new to the ward; this year I already had a good basic relationship with most of the girls and I was able to really see some of those friendships strengthen. Last year it was just me and one other ward leader; this year there were 4 of us leaders, and I think that sometimes we had more fun than the girls. We laughed and sang and talked and told stories. All in all, it was a good camp.
The theme for camp this year was the first line of the Young Women's theme: "We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us and we love him." Well, the stake leaders admitted that it was rather long and not very catchy, so the created a shortened version: F.L.Y.
F.L.Y. = Father Loves You!
