Where friendships are formed,
and families are grown,
where joy is shared a
and true love is known.
Where memories are made
and seeds of life are sown.
This is the place
that people call home.
4. Forgiviness is somethign that is really hard for a lot of people. Forgiveness is something that is a choice you make for yourself. The person you are hurting the most when you can’t forgive someone is yourself, and most of the time, the other person doesn’t even know they have hurt you. Something I have learned on the mission, is that when you cannot forgive someone for something they have done, you are making it so the Lord cannot forgive you when you do something wrong. There is a scripture about that, but I can’t remember where it is. Also, another question is: Are you going to let other people’s actions keep you from salvation? Because that is what you do when you are unforgiving.

A grateful heart…comes through expressing gratitude to our Heavenly Father for His blessings and to those around us for all that they bring into our lives. This requires conscious effort—at least until we have truly learned and cultivated an attitude of gratitude. Often we feel grateful and intend to express our thanks but forget to do so or just don’t get around to it. Someone has said that “feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” -Thomas S. Monson
I started a gratitude journal. I have been having so much fun thinking about the multiple blessings that Father in Heaven has given me. Some things in my journal are big, like God, Himself, and His Son, Jesus. Others are smaller, like the fact that I can walk to church. Or that I have food in my fridge. It is powerful to be thankful, and aware of all that God has given us. There’s always something, many things. I will “receive all things with thankfulness”, thanking Heavenly Father for all blessings given.
Hope your Sunday was the Best! Love, Joy
He was a prophet of God. It has been four years since he passed away. I can’t believe it’s been that long. I have watched him in awe for many years. Always amazed at all he accomplished. I say that because even though I never met him or knew him personally, he was always there, an amazing example. Always a part of my life, from a distance. He had the cutest sense of humor. I loved everything he said.
One time I was at a women’s conference at BYU (Brigham Young University). President Hinckley’s wife was giving a talk with her daughters. She was super cute and fun, too! But at the end of the talk President Hinckley came out to get her.
The crowd stood.
We all started singing, “We Thank Thee O’ God For a Prophet”.
The feeling in the Marriott Center was awesome! I knew he was a prophet! I already knew it before, but really knew it then, more than ever! I love him. He lived a good life. He was a wonderful person. He made me want to be better.
Some of his Wonderful words of wisdom:
“In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”
“Cultivate an attitude of happiness. Cultivate a spirit of optimism. Walk with faith, rejoicing in the beauties of nature, in the goodness of those you love, in the testimony which you carry in your heart concerning things divine.”
“Be grateful, be smart, be clean, be true, be humble, be prayerful.”
Don’t we live in a great time?
There are so many good things about technology. I found a neat thing on Family Search.
They have online classes.
There’s no excuse now! Right?
I admit, there are times when I just want to stay home. I don’t want to get dressed up and leave the house. I don’t have to, I can watch and learn on my computer. What a neat thing. You can check it out here!
Thanks, Family Search!!
This is a story about four people. Their names were: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done, and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Actually, Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody, Nobody did what Anybody could have done!
