The Gift of the Holy Ghost
Seek His constant direction
Become as a little child, humbly making ourselves worthy to have the Holy Ghost.
Shayne M. Bowen
Little children are alive in Christ!
A New Heart– Look forward with Hope, not backward with despair.
You will never get over it until you are reunited with your loved one that has passed on.
Eternal Families, the glorious feeling
I will not leave you comfortless, because I live, ye shall live also.
All that is unfair about life can be made right through the Atonement of Jesus Christ
Russell M. Nelson
Preparation for missionaries
All missionaries live to make life better for other people
Desire to serve a mission is an outward manifestation of your conversion
If you have concerns…..ASK the MISSIONARIES, they can help you!
Mormon Tabernacle Choir
I will follow God’s plan for me,
holding fast to His word and His love
I will work, and I will pray
I will always walk in His ways
and I will be happy on earth and in my home above.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
We are all mortal. None of us will be here on earth very long
The older we get, we marvel how short the road of life really is.
Regrets- Do you have any regrets about your life?
The foundational principles of the gospel will change our lives, if we would just apply them.
Dying patients regrets: 1) they wanted to spend more time with those that matter most and have a deep connection with them 2) they wanted to let themselves be happier
Purposefully living, that is how Jesus Christ lived!
We are ultimately in charge of our happiness
It’s not a race, it’s a journey. Find joy in the journey
Life is not meant to appreciate in retrospect
Stop magnifying the negative in our lives
We cannot take for granted one day
