“I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”

It is so wonderful to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
This always resurfaces again randomly. Shameless fangirl right here.

I can now say that I have officially been discriminated against by a guy because I am a female who has not served a mission.
I knew this was going to happen when they lowered the age requirement.
Me too, and now that the girls who left right when the mission age change happened are coming home, I’m seeing it more prevalently. I can take consolation in the fact that I wouldn’t want to date (or marry) a guy that thinks a woman is only spiritual if she serves a mission anyways.
Wise words from a wise man.
