"God doesn’t love us because we are good, God loves us because He is good."
My mission president said this in stake conference a couple weeks ago, and I can’t help but just think about how true that is. It’s been really relevant in my life for the past couple of days. I’ve always felt like Heavenly Father was kind of a performance-based father and that He would only love me if I followed His commandments, but I’ve come to a knowledge that he loves me all the time, regardless of the decisions I make and I am so grateful for that. Nothing can bar my Heavenly Father’s love for me which inspires me to work toward letting nothing bar my love for Him.

What do you think of dying your hair colors like blue or such?

I don’t think that it’s a problem, but I don’t recommend going to the temple with irreverent hues of hair. That’s my opinion, I don’t know if there’s any church guidelines on hair colors.

I feel kind of depressed because I'm at EFY and even tho I thought I did a pretty good job at being loud and making friends I feel really discouraged because I don't feel as if I'm in the group and it kind of makes me sad and resent spending any sort of time with them...

I don’t really know why this happens sometimes, but I think it has something to do with our personalities. Namely introversion. It’s hard to be with a group of people all the time, especially if you don’t thrive in that sort of a social situation. I would recommend prayer to get through the trial, and also trying to communicate and form stronger bonds with just one or two people. It’s always easier to attend something with a few people you care deeply about :) most importantly, focus on the spirit and try your best to let whatever experiences you have bring you closer to Christ :) best of luck!

I want to talk to this boy about doing a music video but I'm afraid that perhaps maybe Heavenly Father doesn't want me to... I don't want to do something and then not be able to do it because he doesn't support it... What do you suggest I do...

Prayer is an essential tool in decision making. Ask Heavenly Father if what you want to do is what you should do. If you still feel like it’s what you should do, start the process. Continue asking until you receive a definite answer or you feel like you’ve made a definite, correct choice. :)

What's the difference between not running into them and Heavenly Father keeping you away from them ?

This is totally my opinion. I don’t think Heavenly Father keeps us from seeing people. I think he allows both parties to make decisions and either their paths cross or they don’t. I don’t know, there may be circumstances where Heavenly Father would keep us away from people, but I think it’s mostly based on our own choices.

What do you think is the difference between missing someone (like not running into them) and Heavenly Father not thinking that you should ?

Wait, I’m a little confused. Like, what’s the difference between just missing out on seeing someone, or just missing someone?

I feel so terrible because I yelled at this girl that was constantly being mean to me so I feel as if it was justified but now she's being even worse! And I don't want it to ruin my dreams of life next year... I feel so bad like she should just be nice right and figure out that she was possibly wrong. Now all her friends hate me... Idk I just feel really crappy. Idk if I should write explaining why I yelled at her but I just don't know!!! I feel so crummy!!!

This is a really difficult thing to go through. I would say, first and foremost, pray and ask Heavenly Father for forgiveness for letting your temper get the better of you. Then ask Him what it is that you should do. Whether it be just enduring or trying to make things right with this girl or getting someone else to mediate a conversation between the two of you, He can guide you through the spirit. I’m sorry I don’t have a whole lot of advice for this one, but I’m telling you what I would hope to do in your position. Be careful of pride, don’t allow yourself to believe you’ve done nothing wrong. But also don’t constantly punish yourself over a reaction that was human. I know you can overcome this :) best of luck!
