This post is based on a October 2014 General Conference talk called "Live the Gospel Joyful by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf." I love what he mentions for the Image below.
I will share with you some highlights that I love.
“It is good to remember that you are always a child of God,” he said. “This knowledge will carry you through the most difficult times in your life and will inspire you to accomplish remarkable things. However, it is also important to remember that being a daughter of eternal parents is not a distinction you earned or you will ever lose. You will always and forever remain a daughter of God. Your Heavenly Father has high aspirations for you, but your divine origin alone does not guarantee you a divine inheritance. God sent you here to prepare for a future greater than anything you can imagine.”
The promised blessings of God to the faithful are glorious and inspiring, he said. “And it takes more than a spiritual birth certificate or a child of God membership card to qualify for these incomprehensible blessings.”
“In reality, Heavenly Father is constantly raining blessings upon us. It is our fear, doubt, and sin that, like an umbrella, block these blessings from reaching us.”
President Uchtdorf said the Creator is reaching out to His children. “He is offering the grand recipe for happiness, peace, and eternal life! To qualify for these glorious blessings, you must humble yourself, exercise faith, take upon you the name of Christ, seek Him in word and deed, and resolutely ‘stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places’ (Mosiah 18:9).”
“He loves you not only for who you are this very day, but also for the person of glory and light you have the potential and the desire to become. “More than you could ever imagine, He wants you to achieve your destiny—to return to your heavenly home in honor.

Reader, I encourage you to think about these 2 questions "how do you live the gospel joyful?" "How have you set an example to your non-member friend about the gospel?"
