"LDS Women are Incredible!" -- Elder Quentin L. Cook

The whole talk is very complimentary and beautiful towards women. He says:

"Our women are not incredible because they have managed to avoid the difficulties of life -- quite the opposite. They are incredible because of the way they face the trials of life."

One of the way women do this is to lose themselves in the service of others. When one is having a hard time, the best way to feel better is to get out of bed and help someone with their problems.

Today the world is constantly telling women to have more "me" time, to solve her problems by stepping out on the world. While we should not always be go-go-going, this constant self-therapy is not the practice that heals the wounds in women -- it is service.

When we serve others our own problems start to diminish. It is a blessing to those who have service done for them, as well as for those who serve.
