LaLona speaks at the Young Women in Excellence Night

On Tuesday, November 10th, I was honored to serve as the keynote speaker for the Young Women in Excellence Night at the Peachtree Corners Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is a night to celebrate the church’s young women ages 12-18 and their accomplishments in their journeys toward completing the Personal Progress Program.  This is a program in the church designed to help young women strengthen their faith in and testimony of Jesus Christ as they learn His teachings and regularly apply them in their lives.
I was asked to speak on inner beauty and what it means to be beautiful in the eyes of Jesus Christ.  It was a remarkable evening, one of my favorite moments since being crowned Mrs. Georgia. I was touched by the young women’s faith, fortitude, and dedication, and blessed by meeting the incredibly strong women who serve as the leaders of this group. 
At the conclusion of the evening, each young woman was given a banner (like my Mrs. Georgia banner) that read, “Daughter of God” – what a wonderful title we all share!

Thank you, Jen, for asking me to participate.
