Hi! My name is Ryn. I’m turning 12 this December and will be going into Young Women. My mom asked me to write about the things for which I’m excited, scared, or hopeful. I am very excited to be able to spend time with all the girls in my ward and all of my friends who are already in Young Women. I am excited to start Personal Progress. I am happy that I get to do fun stuff like service projects. I am also simply excited to just be at church with the Young Women. Since I will be twelve I am excited to go to the temple. I’ll have more chances to feel the spirit during Sunday school, testimony meeting at girls camp, when I go to the temple, or when we do service projects together.
I am kind of scared to camp without my mom or dad because I might get a little homesick. I’m very worried whether or not people will like me. A girl at school made me feel like I didn’t know anything and it really hurt my feelings, so I’m scared they’ll think I’m weird or not want to be friends with me.
I hope I’ll have fun at Girls Camp next year and that I make a lot of friends. I hope that I’ll like everyone and that everyone will like me. I hope I’ll understand everything so that I can feel the Spirit. I hope I’ll have the best time as a Young Women.
