Where Do I Go From Here?

Now what? What's next for me? After graduating from high school and as a young adult you face so many choices. It can be hard to figure out what's right for you.

The academic world would have you strive for a degree that will lead to a fulfilling, well-paying full-time career. Our religious world stresses getting married and becoming a stay-at-home mom. In an ideal world you might see yourself becoming rich, famous or both. The "real" world may force you to get a job right away and think more realistically about your goals.

What about your dreams? What will your future be? Will you serve a full-time mission? Have a family? A career? Especially at this time in your life, the Lord's help is crucial in the decision making process.

That's why I'm so excited to tell you about a book I just read. It's called Where Do I Go from Here?: Finding Your Personal Mission as a Young Adult Woman. Brigham Young once said “There is neither man nor woman in this church who is not on a mission. That mission will last as long as they live.” Yes, you have a personal mission! You were put in your place in life to do things only you can do. Now is the time to figure out what that mission is so it can be your guide map as you begin making the decisions that will shape your life.

Your potential is much more than you can imagine, and Heavenly Father wants you to realize that potential. What you envision as your most perfect, fun and happy future is based upon a limited earthly view. If you could see your true potential, what will be your future if you let the Lord guide you, it would probably dwarf your current hopes and dreams. Where Do I Go from Here? is an awesome, inspiring book written just for LDS young adult women. It leads you down a path of personal discovery to help you figure out what your mission is. Taking into consideration your gifts, talents and unique interests, you'll determine how you, personally, can make a difference in the world.
