The Western Woman

Good Morning Friends 🙂 

I am thankful today for the power that lies in a woman!! One of my very best friends gave me a shirt that says, 

“Empowered Women Empower Women”.  

It is so TRUE!! 

At the Vancouver Peace summit in 2009, the Dalai Lama made a bold proclamation, 

“The world will be saved by the Western woman.” 

Wow- that is quite the statement!!  However, I feel the truth of it deeply.  

Through participating in humanitarian work in Haiti, Peru and Fiji, I have seen first hand how women across the world do not enjoy the same rights, freedoms and blessings that we “Western women” do.  It is blatantly obvious and truly heartbreaking that the women in these areas are so profoundly handicapped and even abused by their culture and society.  

Friends, we are so blessed to be  “Western women”!  We are free to pursue our hopes and dreams. Free to learn and explore our heart’s desires.  Free to truly develop our gifts, strengths and talents.  Ultimately we are free to use those divinely given blessings to pursue businesses and careers that allow us to magnify our missions to this world. 

Consider the following quotes:

-“Women who are truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ, who have been endowed with power and learned how to draw upon that power can change the world.” (Sherri Dew)

-“We each have a divine errand.  A mission to perform in mortality.  When we are on that errand we are far more likely to have the influence our Father wants and needs us to have.” (Sherri Dew)

-“Much of the major growth that is coming to the church in the last days will come because many of the good women of the world, in whom there is often such an inner sense of spirituality, will be drawn to the church in large numbers.  This will happen to the degree that the women of the church reflect righteousness and articulateness in their lives and to the degree that the women of the church are seen as distinct and different in happy ways from the women of the world.” (Spencer W. Kimball)

My question for you this Thankful Thursday is, how will you use these priviledges and blessings of being a “Western woman” to save the world? Are you an empowered woman? What can you do to empower other women?  What are your gifts and talents and how can you use them to spread light and serve the world?

If you are looking for empowerment- I invite you to consider working with me.  Let me wake you up to the secrets of your mind, body and spirit in order to powerfully step in to who you really are and step up to your missions to this world.


Rooting for you always,

Candice Noss
