Throughout this post, it mentions "YSA." YSA stands for Young Single Adults.
On Sunday evening, I attended a Multistake YSA Fireside at Forestdale Chapel.
It was the last event to end the weekend of Multistake YSA Service Convention.
I always strive my best to keep some of my friends updated about my week each week.
Two friends who is serving in two different missions, they asked me three fireside related questions via emails. The questions that I got asked was;
"how did the fireside go?" "How was the fireside?" "What did they speak about?"
How did the fireside go? Good. How was the fireside? The fireside was good.
What did they speak about? I will share with you some notes that I took.
What is distraction?
A distraction is something that takes your attention away from what you're supposed to be doing. For example: If I was taking the clothes off the line and stopped to look at my phone for notifications. That is a distraction.
The YSA got asked: What are the distractions do we face in YSAs today?
We mentioned about "Facebook," "social media," "phones," "peer pressure," "friends," "families," and other things that are distractions. Life is full of distractions.
The YSA got asked: What matters most to you?
Some YSAs mentioned, "gospel," "atonement," "family," "friends," "life," "food," "your testimony," "physical health" "mental health" and other things.
I asked myself: What matters most to me?
I would like to share with you, my answer and I encourage you to respect my answer.
Everything that involves with the true gospel such as Heavenly Father's Plan, The Saviour's Atonement, my Family, friends who are serving their missions, the scriptures, Church songs, attending the Temple often, the teachings of the gospel, etc.
If the true gospel wasn't my first preference; I would say, "my Family, my relatives, my life, my Best Friends, my Close Friends, my Friends, my talents, and the things that I have learnt throughout my life so far."
I encourage you to think about "what matters the most to you?" and feel free to share via comments below. Stay Tuned until next time.
