It's been 2 years since I received this medallion. I achieved a lot of things that helped me temporally, and spiritually.
I finished the Book of Mormon at age 12.
I fought depression, and almost attempted to take away my life at age 13.
Finally had faith and finished Personal Progress at age 14.
Finished the Book of Mormon again and took part in the 100th Stake Celebration at age 15.
Found myself finishing the Book of Mormon again and gained my testimony because of FSY at age 16.
Wearing this medallion reminds me how dedicated I am to finish Personal Progress. I saw my 14 year old self planning to finish it right away as I finish each tasks and projects, and grew my faith during that time. I saw myself crying when I bore my testimony and felt the spirit as tears fall down my face, making me unable to speak well at that time.
This year will be different for me. Im having that great desire to achieve more because I know receiving this medallion is not the end for me to strive more. I found myself helping some sisters in their own Personal Progress and I love how they strive each day to finish it. Hoping to see these sisters receive that medallion because Im dedicated to receive my Honor Bee this year.
