I am sharing this video with you for two reasons
1 – I LOVE the Gardiner Sisters and I think you will too. 3 LDS sisters that play the guitar and sing, sharing valuable messages from their heart.
2 – This is a video you should add to your monthly watch list, seriously we all need reminders of real beauty and where it comes from.
Real beauty is something we hear about a lot, but what is it? Well, in the scriptures when Nephi is learning about the tree of life, he learns it represents the love of God. And this is how he describes it:
1 Nephi 11:8 “And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me: Look! And I looked and beheld a tree; and it was like unto the tree which my father had seen; and the beauty thereof was far beyond, yea, exceeding of all beauty; and the whiteness thereof did exceed the whiteness of the driven snow.”
So the love of God is exceeding of all beauty (THAT’S REAL BEAUTY RIGHT THERE!) and then in 1 John 5:3 we read:
“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.”
So we learn that the love of God is keeping the commandments of Heavenly Father, which Christ is perfect in. So to experience REAL beauty and to see it in ourselves (resulting in loving ourselves more completely), we need to strive to be Christ-like in all things. How POWERFUL is that?!
We are daughters of God (TRUE PRINCESSES), and Christ wants to give us a crown (D&C 25:15), a beautiful crown for a beautiful girl, but we can only wear this crown if we are righteous. In Lamentations 5:16 it says:
“The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!”
We can only have true beauty, (THE LOVE OF GOD) when we are righteous! It’s a beauty with incredible powers and awards that await us as we follow Christ. It’s a beauty that others see when we are around them, it’s a kind of beauty that makes you confident and rejoiceful with yourself. It’s a kind of beauty that allows you to feel joy, peace, happiness, purity, love, kindness, abundance, and grace. It’s the only kind of beauty that will help you to love yourself more completely.
Perhaps you can start incorporating a few of the things the Gardiner sisters do to feel REAL BEAUTY!
Go Be-YOU-tiful! The world needs more of your authentic self and Christ is the way to finding it.
