Daughter of God Week Day 6

Be The Chip!

Be the chip was all about handling adversity. The quotes we used were these:

If for a while the harder you try, the harder it gets, Take Heart. So it has been with the best people who ever lived. - Jeffrey R. Holland

It is your reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself, that determines how your life’s story will develop. - Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Remember who you are & who God expects you to become. - Thomas S. Monson

Be the Chip
The Chocolate chip became famous for its ability to stand firm against the heat of the oven. Be the chocolate chip! In a world of “heat”, you can be strong. You can choose to be 'in the cookie, but not of the cookie'.  Just as the chocolate chip made the cookie better by retaining its true nature, you can make the world better by retaining your true nature as a follower of Christ.  You don't have to be something or someone else.  You don't have to melt into the crowd; you can be the chocolate chip!  You will get noticed for being different.  You will stand out.  That is what makes all the difference, and is what makes a chocolate chip cookie so great.  What good would it be without the chocolate chip?  Be you.  Be different.  Be better.  Be the chocolate chip!"

This was a fun one for me. I enjoyed wrapping the cookies up and delivering them still warm! The bag of marshmallows and chocolate chips were for our gluten free girls. I also really loved the fabric washi tape and paper bags I found at Michael's, but watch it, you'll definitely want to bring your 40% off coupon!
