I really enjoyed president Nealson’s counsel to take a break from Socail Media. I found that as as took his counsel into account, I found that I felt different and wanted to extend my socail media fast to one month and see how it went. I find that i am still using socail media but I feel happier and more of a light than if I am always on Socail Media.

Thank you President Nelson for being so clear and distinct about what the youth need to do and why we are needed. So many confusing messages are in line that distort why we came to earth and what we were sent here to do. These messages cleared my confusion and made sharing the Gospel a thrilling mission to complete, rather then a burden. As I have worked towards completing the 5 challenges, especially the social media challenge, I have found more motivation, increasing my creativity and imagination, participated in healthy communication and activities, and been able to take a brake from fake. I have made a goal for myself to continue these challenges throughout my life. (Except, rather then a social media fast, I will use social media for the reason it was created, not for the reason of being fake.) I have found a determination to come closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that is why I am continuing these challenges.

I really like the 5 commitments that will help us come closer to Christ and to be more committed to the covenant path. My favorite commitment is to be a light to the world and to feel comfortable standing out. President and Sister Nelson, I really appreciate your willingness to speak directly to the youth and to help us learn how to come closer to Christ.

In first my gratitude goes our precious and everlasting father who is in heaven for granting us this inspired Prophet of our generation. President Nelson I love you, I sustain you. I know is through prophet that the lord reveled his secret. I am much grateful for this counsel from our heavenly father through His prophet. I know He love His children that HE want us to return to Him safely that is why he always guide us through his prophet and servant. I have test this counsel and i am still tasting it. When I first heard this counsel it was not that much easy for me to stay off-line. It became a challenge to me that that but now I have overcome the addiction of social media were I face a lot of obstacles and world challenges but now I have even been able to delete even my facebook account and I feel like am HIS song whom He saw in the premortal life that it was good, I mean, I feel like am among the great and noble ones.

The challenge has been wonderful! I’m so thankful for President Nelson and his wife Wendy :-) I thought I’d share my thoughts while completing the honorable charge they’ve given us. I’ve felt grateful for the opportunity, happier through its execution, and hope from the blessings it’s brought me. Using my phone less has helped me turn it into a tool: useful only when a task is needing done and best left put away otherwise. The second challenge was a bit trickier, but then I realized you can sacrifice time to the Lord in all kinds of ways: praying longer, reading an extra Book of Mormon chapter, and doing family history and temple work:) All while on the strait and narrow! I’ll be helping answer the prayers given in challenge four on my mission to Tucson next month! I started the final challenge by giving a dear friend of mine a for strength of youth and bearing testimony to him how the application of the standards therein have brought me blessings without number. I love this gospel!

I finished the social media fast yesterday. I said I would start last Monday morning but, I got excited and started late Sunday evening. It was nice not having the expectation to see notifications from social media apps(or to be disappointed and see none). This fast helped me realize that social media is great for communication but, it also has the skill to place other people as a priority over Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the gospel. I'm glad I took the fast while I still had a few days of school left because I noticed how much time I actually spend wasting on my social media rather than actually socializing.
