Happy Tuesday

Good morning!!

Today’s 40 Days & 40 Nights General Conference Challenge talk was “Sustaining The Prophets” by Russell M Nelson. I love this quote:

My dear brothers and sisters, if the Restoration did anything, it shattered the age-old myth that God had stopped talking to His children. Nothing could be further from the truth.


I got to sleep a little late this morning. It was very nice!!

My grandkids are watching Frozen again for about the 500th time. They love it. Little Miss sings along with the songs. It is soooooo cute.

Well I need to close. I Hope everyone has a great day!!

Parents as teachers

Today I watched/listened to the talk by Tad R Callister  “Parents: The Prime Gospel Teachers of Their Children

I missed out on teaching my children all that I should have taught them about Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Restored Gospel. I am definitely going to attempt to do better teaching with my grand children on this subject.

He posed a question that I believe is very, very important:

We might all ask ourselves: do our children receive our best spiritual, intellectual, and creative efforts, or do they receive our leftover time and talents, after we have given our all to our Church calling or professional pursuits?

I will have to work diligently to make sure I give my grand children my best efforts, not what is left over!!

I hope that all of you have a wonderful day!!! (((HUGS)))

Ponder The Path Of Thy Feet

Ponder The Path of Thy Feet is the name of a wonderful talk given by President Thomas S. Monson this past first weekend in October.  It was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints conference that we have twice a year.

It was a wonderful talk (they always are though). I also thought it was really cool that a couple of the speakers prior to the prophet had stated to follow the Prophet, and then he told us to follow Jesus Christ!

One of his early statements in this talk was: We learn that decisions determine destiny.

He told of a woman who visited Jerusalem and was thrilled to have walked where Jesus walked, then he told us that:  physically walking where Jesus walked is less important than walking as He walked.

He assured us that:

We, with Jesus, can walk the path of obedience. It will not always be easy, but let our watchword be the heritage bequeathed us by Samuel: “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”13 Let us remember that the end result of disobedience is captivity and death, while the reward for obedience is liberty and eternal life.

And, he told us of a very spiritual and humble couple that I hope I can emulate one day.

Do yourself a favor and go read the words of a modern day prophet!!  I never regret hearing and applying  his counsel in my life!!

“Challenges often come in multiple doses applied simultaneously…”


wanted to pass it on!

Originally posted on Brian Mickelson....:

richard-g-scott-largeI have new practice of filling my extra time with interesting reading and then grabbing the highlights and organizing them in a way that helps me retrieve them when needed. I’ll go into this new habit soon enough. Today, I want to focus on one of the gems of some recent study.

I always thought when people expressed that their trials seem to come in waves that they were just seeing their life in a pessimistic light. Of course, if I look back into my journal I would probably notice the pattern holding true for me and my family as well. And, as I was recently studying an address from Elder Richard G. Scott, he seemed to share the same sentiment:

“Just when all seems to be going right, challenges often come in multiple doses applied simultaneously. When those trials are not consequences of your disobedience, they are evidence…

Prayers for others

I am going to be part of an event from sundown today to sundown tomorrow. I would like to invite all of you to this event also:

We invite you to join the Mormon Women Stand Facebook event, Global Prayer for Iraqi Christians, to unite in prayer and fasting with the worldwide community of Christians on behalf of our courageous brothers and sisters, and their children, who refuse to deny Jesus Christ, even at the peril of their lives, August 23-24th.

This is a link to the Blog about this wonderful chance for all Christians to unite to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters.

This is from the event page itself:

We believe that faith in Jesus Christ through united prayer to petition God on behalf of those who are suffering at the hands of evil will make a marked difference.

Therefore, on behalf of our Christian brothers’ and sisters’ in Iraq, we are inviting Christians of all denominations to join a global effort of fasting and prayer to petition the Lord for speedy relief and safety from those who desire to execute Christians if they refuse to deny Jesus Christ.

See: http://3daysforyazidi.wordpress.com/

We are encouraging daily prayer on behalf of all suffering in Iraq at this time and will join in a united, interfaith-community fast from sundown, August 23rd to sundown, August 24th.

LDS Charities has authorized 100,000K in relief funds, with plans to provide more, as able. As you can imagine, getting physical relief supplies to refugees is very challenging and our prayers for this effort are greatly needed as well.

Please consider donating to the “General Fund” at LDS Charities – the humanitarian arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:http://go.shr.lc/1uQutPa

(((HUGS))) I hope that all of you have a wonderful weekend!!
