Strengthen Your Faith

I was looking at Quotes from General Conferences. I love a quote that relates to all of us because we all face challenges each day and each night.
It is so true because I know whenever I face challenges, I always put trust in Heavenly Father first and instantly feel that those challenges has been strengthening my faith more.

It helps me to become stronger person and have an understanding of why I face those type of challenges. We came to this world, to be tested. We will all make mistakes, and it's okay to make mistakes but we need to acknowledge our mistakes and learn from our mistakes so that we haven't do the same mistakes again.

We all need to learn forgiveness and need to ask Heavenly Father for forgiveness after we did some mistakes. Those little mistakes counts too. It also heaps us to become feel so much better after we ask forgiveness.

If it takes us awhile and don't forgive straight away, sometimes it can make us feel guilty or sad. Remember always put trust in Heavenly Father and he knows what is best for us as an individuals.

Not only challenges can strengthen our faith, but we can also read scriptures each day, saying our daily prayers, saying our evening prayers, etc to strengthen our faith.

My Thoughts About True Friends

Some True Friends would last for a life time. Some True Friends moves on with other things.
Recently, I asked myself a few questions. A few questions that was based on True Friends.
I would like to share with you those questions and my thoughts about it.
The questions was; "What is my thoughts about True Friends?"
"How do I decide if my friend is a True Friend?" and
"What does it mean to have True Friends?"

My Thoughts about True Friends is ..

True Friends wouldn't walk away from disagreements. True Friends wouldn't discourage you.
True Friends wouldn't judge you because of your appearance and your past mistakes.
True Friends wouldn't lie to you. True Friends wouldn't give you mean compliments.

True Friends would take the time to get to know you. True Friends would care about you.
True Friends would build trust in you. True Friends would pay attention and listen to you.
True Friends would support your decisions. True Friends would appreciate you.

True Friends would look out for you. True Friends would cheer you up.
True Friends will miss you when they don't see you for a long time.
True Friends always appreciate the little things from you.

I would decide if my friend is a True Friend by doing those things that mentions above.
It means a lot to have True Friends because they would always try to be there for you.

In your own time; I encourage you to THINK about who your True Friends are, THINK about what your True Friends do for you and THINK about what you do for them in return.

Reason For the World

This post is based on a song that I loved, called "Reason For the World by Matthew West."
Below is a video of the song, however I like Mercy River's version of the song.
I encourage you to listen to the song in your own time.
If you listened to the song, what was your thoughts about the song?
What does it mean when you hear "Reason For the World" for the first time?

I love the Lyrics when it says "Maybe the reason for the pain is so we would pray for strength. And maybe the reason for the strength, is so that we would not lose hope. And maybe the reason for all hope is so that we could face the world. And the reason for the world is to make us long for home."

Readers, I encourage you all to always remember to pray for strength, comfort, peace, hope and other things. Always try your very best to apply faith and trust in those things that those things might happen. All things doesn't all happen at once, it will always take time either in the Lord's timing or in its own time. Some things will help you to get through trails and tribulations.

I know whenever Heavenly Father doesn't answer my prayers, it always teaches me to be patient with him and I always try to ask different questions that has the same reason.

It is always a great feeling, and brings happiness knowing that Heavenly Father always hears my prayers and knowing that he always hears your prayers too. When I ask for certain things and when I apply faith and trust in those things, it comes true. It always makes me feel happy.

It Might Be Hope

This post is based on a song that I loved, called "It Might Be Hope by Mercy River."
This post is short and sweet.
Have you heard the song before? If not, it is a good church song by Mercy River.
I always listen to the song so often that it helps me to feel peace and comfort.

In your own time, I encourage you to listen to the song by watching the Video below.
If you can't see the Video above, here's the link below.

I love the lyrics when it mentioned "Hope has a way of turning its face to you, just when you least expect it. You walk in a room, You look out a window and something there leaves you breathless. You say to yourself, it’s been a while since I felt this but it feels like it might be hope."

Readers, I encourage you to think about the following four questions,
"If you listened to the song, how did it make you feel?"
"Did you like the song?" What does hope means to you?"
and "How do you apply hope in your daily life?"

Comfort in Trials

Short and sweet post. I love what the Image below say, and it is so true.

I always remember the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost can always provide comfort during difficult trials and challenges when we allow it. I know all of us go through trails and challenges everyday
I know it isn't suppose to be easy to get through those trails and challenges. The Video is called: "Comfort in Trials: Power of the Holy Spirit"
If you can't see the video, here is the link below for the video.

Has the Holy Ghost has been a comforter to you through your challenges?
Has the Holy Ghost has been a comforter to you through your tribulations?
Has the Holy Ghost has been a comforter to you through all of your trials?  

"I testify that I really liked the video of other people to say about how has the Spirit been a comfort to them. It is one of the many grateful things that I have in life to able to have the Holy Ghost. Whenever I feel upset and down, I always feel comfort from the Holy Ghost instantly.

Some people like Investigators and Less Actives gets to feel the love and power of the Holy Ghost at Church, during Missionary Discussions, etc.

In The Name of Jesus Christ. Amen."

Depends On Our Attitude

I was looking on Google Images for great quotes, either from General Conference or Scripture Verses. I thought to share one of the great Images that I have found.
It is so true, we always have an attitude for something. We always choose to see things and respond differently to everyone else around us. For an example, someone could be tired and don't want to work. The other person could be tired but still get the work done. I think we all need too realise so much in life depends on our attitude,

It makes all the difference of knowing to have the right attitude towards everything, Sometimes, we can be unsure of what the attitude is appropriate to have towards certain things. Sometimes our attitudes can lose the Holy Ghost to be with us. That is why we ask for forgiveness and ask Heavenly Father to have the Holy Ghost to be with us again. If you were baptised, you are accountable for making the decisions either it will be with the Holy Ghost directing you to the right paths or getting tempted into temptations by Satan.

I testify that we all need to make a difference and think for a moment about what is our current attitudes towards things that we are currently doing. Is there any attitudes that we need to change?

If so, how would we can make it change for the better? Please seek for guidance and help towards it through personal prayers to Heavenly Father. He is there to help you and direct you. Sometimes, it will just take little steps at a time. I leave these things are true. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Strength to Endure

This post is based on a October General Conference 2013 talk that I love and it is called "The Strength to Endure" by Elder Richard J. Maynes. I would like to share with you some highlights while I was reading the talk.

"Every morning when we wake up, we face a new day filled with the challenges of life.

These challenges come in many forms: physical challenges, financial setbacks, difficulties with relationships, emotional trials, and even struggles with one’s faith.

Many of the challenges we face in life can be solved and overcome; however, others may be difficult to understand and impossible to overcome and will be with us until we pass on to the next life.

As we temporarily endure the challenges we can solve and as we continue to endure the challenges we cannot solve, it is important to remember that the spiritual strength we develop will help us successfully endure all the challenges we face in life.

Heavenly Father has organized our journey through life to be a test of our character. We are exposed to both good and evil influences and then given the moral agency to choose for ourselves which path we will take. As the ancient Book of Mormon prophet Samuel taught, “Ye are free; ye are permitted to act for yourselves; for behold, God hath given unto you a knowledge and he hath made you free.”

Heavenly Father also understood that due to our mortality we would not always make the correct or righteous choice. Because we are not perfect and because we make mistakes, we need help in returning to His presence. The necessary help is provided through the teachings, example, and atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
If you can't read the words on the Image above, it says “Because we face challenges every day, it is important that we work on our spiritual stamina every day. When we develop spiritual stamina, the false traditions of the world, as well as our personal daily challenges, will have little negative impact on our ability to endure in righteousness.” - Elder Richard J. Maynes.

The Savior’s atoning sacrifice makes possible our future salvation and exaltation through the principle of repentance. If we honestly and sincerely repent, the Atonement can help us become clean, change our nature, and successfully endure our challenges.

So whatever challenges you wake up to each morning, remember with the spiritual strength you develop, coupled with the Lord’s help, at the end of the race you will be able to enjoy the confidence that the Apostle Paul expressed when he said:

“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day.”

In your own time, I encourage you to read this talk. It is a very great and powerful talk.

The Privilege of Prayer

This post is based on a October 2011 General Conference called "The Privilege of Prayer by J Devan. Cornish." I would like to share with you some highlights that I loved when I was reading this talk.

"In His mercy, the God of heaven, the Creator and Ruler of all things everywhere, had heard a prayer about a very minor thing. One might well ask why He would concern Himself with something so small. I am led to believe that our Heavenly Father loves us so much that the things that are important to us become important to Him, just because He loves us. 

We must not imagine that any kind of prayer, no matter how sincere, will be very effective if all we do is to say the prayer. We must not only say our prayers; we must also live them. The Lord is much more pleased with the person who prays and then goes to work than with the person who only prays. Much like medicine, prayer works only when we use it as directed.

When I say that prayer is a sweet privilege, it is not just because I am grateful to be able to talk to Heavenly Father and to feel His Spirit when I pray. It is also because He actually answers and speaks to us. Of course, the way He speaks to us is usually not with a voice we hear. President Boyd K. Packer explained: “That sweet, quiet voice of inspiration comes more as a feeling than it does as a sound. Pure intelligence can be spoken into the mind. This guidance comes as thoughts, as feelings through promptings and impressions” (“Prayer and Promptings,” Ensign, Nov. 2009).
Sometimes we seem to get no answer to our sincere and striving prayers. It takes faith to remember that the Lord answers in His time and in His way so as to best bless us. Or, on further reflection, we will often realize that we already know full well what we should do.

Please do not be discouraged if this does not work for you all at once. Like learning a foreign language, it takes practice and effort. Please know, though, that you can learn the language of the Spirit, and when you do, it will give you great faith and power in righteousness.

I cherish the counsel of our beloved prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, who said: “To those within the sound of my voice who are struggling with challenges and difficulties large and small, prayer is the provider of spiritual strength; it is the passport to peace. Prayer is the means by which we approach our Father in Heaven, who loves us. Speak to Him in prayer and then listen for the answer. Miracles are wrought through prayer” (“Be Your Best Self,” Ensign, May 2009).

Consider the Blessings

What does "Consider the Blessings" means to you? This post is based on October 2012 General Conference talk called "Consider the Blessings" by Thomas S. Monson.
It is so true of what he said, because I will challenge you all to have a look for the blessings, large and small that you have received. Those little things counts. He mentions a lot that is really useful and I will choose those highlights to share with you. One of the things that he learnt was "never to postpone a prompting." 

I loved how he was sharing stories about Blessings and it was amazed for me to read the talk. I would like to share with you one of the stories with you.

"as Sister Monson and I were driving home after visiting friends, I felt impressed that we should go into town a drive of many miles to pay a visit to an elderly widow who had once lived in our ward. Her name was Zella Thomas. At the time, she was a resident in a care center. That early afternoon we found her to be extremely frail but lying peacefully on her bed.

Zella had long been blind, but she recognized our voices immediately. She asked if I might give her a blessing, adding that she was prepared to die if the Lord wanted her to return home. There was a sweet, peaceful spirit in the room, and all of us knew that her remaining time in mortality would be brief. Zella took me by the hand and said that she had prayed fervently that I would come to see her and provide her a blessing. I told her that we had come because of direct inspiration from our Heavenly Father. I kissed her on the forehead, knowing that I perhaps would not again see her in mortality. Such proved to be the case, for she passed away the following day. To have been able to provide some comfort and peace to our sweet Zella was a blessing to her and to me."

Towards of the end of his talk, he mentioned what has stood out to me and I thought it would be nice if I shared it with you. He mentioned "I never cease to be amazed by how the Lord can motivate and direct the length and breadth of His kingdom and yet have time to provide inspiration concerning one individual or one cultural celebration or one Jumbotron. The fact that He can, that He does, is a testimony to me.

My brothers and sisters, the Lord is in all of our lives. He loves us. He wants to bless us. He wants us to seek His help. As He guides us and directs us and as He hears and answers our prayers, we will find the happiness here and now that He desires for us. May we be aware of His blessings in our lives, I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, Amen." 

It is so true about what he mentions throughout the talk, if you would like to read the whole talk for yourself or for your friends or for your family; here's the link below and I hope you will enjoy it.

Choosing Charity

This post is based on October General Conference 2003 talk called "Choosing Charity: That Good Part by Bonnie D. Parkin."

I loved how she mentions at the beginning "Each of you; no matter your age, stage of life, or circumstance is needed, valued, and loved in Relief Society. Thank you for who you are; thank you for all that you do."
I will share with you some highlights that I loved during reading this talk.

"We all are trying to choose the good part which cannot be taken from us, to balance the spiritual and the temporal in our lives. The one thing that is needful is to choose eternal life. We choose daily. As we seek, listen, and follow the Lord, we are encircled in the arms of His love a love that is pure.

Mormon teaches us that “charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever.” The pure love of Christ. Let’s look at that. What does this phrase mean? We find part of the answer in Joshua: “Take diligent heed to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Charity is our love for the Lord, shown through our acts of service, patience, compassion, and understanding for one another.

Do we judge one another? Do we criticize each other for individual choices, thinking we know better, when in fact we rarely understand another’s unique circumstance or individual inspiration? Have we ever said, “She works outside the home.” Or, “Her son didn’t serve a mission.” Or, “She’s too old for a calling.” Or, “She can’t she’s single.” Such judgments, and so many others like them, rob us of the good part, that pure love of Christ.

Elder Marvin J. Ashton beautifully observed: “Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorise someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped.

Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other."

Finding Joy in the Journey

I love reading quotes from Thomas S. Monson. I love seeing Images that goes with the quotes, thanks to Google Images. I think we all should apply this quote to our daily lives.
As for me, it means that everyday living, I will find Joy in the Journey even through the rough roads that I would go through. Try to finding Joy into everything that I do.

Thomas S. Monson had one of his talks based on Finding Joy in the Journey. One of things that I loved of what he mentioned was "Stresses in our lives come regardless of our circumstances. We must deal with them the best we can. But we should not let them get in the way of what is most important and what is most important almost always involves the people around us.

Often we assume that they must know how much we love them. But we should never assume; we should let them know. Wrote William Shakespeare, “They do not love that do not show their love.”

We will never regret the kind words spoken or the affection shown. Rather, our regrets will come if such things are omitted from our relationships with those who mean the most to us."

It is so true. The Video below is called: Finding a Leaf: Joy in the Journey and the audio is from Thomas S. Monson talk was on Finding Joy in the Journey.
I hope you will like the video and this blog post. What does "Finding Joy" means to you?

2 Years Ago Yesterday since High School Graduation and Formal

Where has the time gone? It has been 2 years ago yesterday since I graduated High School and since I attended Formal/Prom. Time has been going so fast.

I still remember when I was ...
Crying the day before because my friend couldn't go to formal with me.
Walking down the school hall for the last time as a High School student.
Feeling like a princess for Formal because I was wearing a tiara.
Getting ready for Formal.
Many thanks to my talented sister for doing my hair, my make up and my fake nails for Formal. It may seem hard to believe but my Formal dress still fits me.

I would like to share with you the dates of those evenings that I have worn the dress to and what formal event it was. I have worn the same dress for 5 other formal occasions.

Friday: July 5th, 2013 - When I first wore the dress for my first date.
Annual Priest and Laurels Ball/Church Ball for 16 years to 18 years females and males.

Friday: November 15th, 2013 - Formal.

Faith and Faithful

Readers, I love the Image below, it is so true! What does the word "faith" means to you?
I encourage you to remember what the word "faith" means to you and write down in your journal so you can look back to it one day.
What does the word "faith" means to someone who is near you? 
Can you think of any recent experiences using faith?
If you can't think of anything, I also encourage you to ask a friend or a family member if they could think of any recent experiences using faith.  

When I think about the word "faith," I think about the meaning of it and so that would be believing in something that does exist but cannot seen.

What does the word "faithful" means to you?

When I think about the word "faithful," I think about the meaning of it and so that would be remaining loyal and steadfast. I love being faithful in the Church by standing up to what I believe in to my non-member friends and I'm not ashamed to share anything about the Church to my non-member friends. 

Readers, I hope you learnt something new; it could be anything.

Sorella Barlow's 6th Month Mark

This post is short and sweet as I don't have much to say.

Time has been going so fast! In general, this year has gone so fast. Where did the time go? It is hard to believe for me that my friend Sorella Barlow has reached her 6th month mark of her mission today and she has 1 year left of her mission to go.

I know that Sorella Barlow is a great Sister Missionary who is serving in Milan Italy Mission.
I love getting privileges when I get the chance to chat with Sorella Barlow through emails.
I love reading her emails often. I love seeing photos throughout her mission so far.

Above is one of her mission photos of her during her mission.

By reading emails from her, it sounds like that she has been enjoying her mission so far.
I think the last 6 months has been the best and challenging months in her life so far.
I am very happy for her progress during her mission so far. I love being one of her friends.
I am happy for her decision to serve a mission.

The Best Paths

This post is based on a recent October General Conference 2014 talk called "The Lord Has a Plan for Us!" by Elder Carlos A. Godoy.
I will share with you some highlights that I loved throughout the talk.

"All of us have experienced or will yet experience moments of great decision in our lives. Should I pursue this career or that one? Should I serve a mission? Is this the right person for me to marry?

These are situations in different areas of our lives in which a small change in direction can have significant future consequences. In the words of President Dieter F. Uchtdorf: “Through years of serving the Lord, I have learned that the difference between happiness and misery in individuals, in marriages, and families often comes down to an error of only a few degrees” (“A Matter of a Few Degrees,” Ensign May 2008).

It was not a decision between what was right and wrong but between what was good and what was better, as Elder Dallin H. Oaks taught us when he said: “As we consider various choices, we should remember that it is not enough that something is good. Other choices are better, and still others are best” (“Good, Better, Best,” Ensign Nov. 2007).

How then can we ensure that we are making the best decision?" 

"Principle Number One: We Need to Consider Our Options with the End in Mind

Making decisions that can impact our lives and those we love without having the broader vision of their consequences can bring some risks. However, if we project the possible consequences of these decisions into the future, we can see with greater clarity the best path to take in the present.

Principle Number Two: We Need to Be Prepared for the Challenges That Will Come

In the words of President Thomas S. Monson: “Each of you, single or married, regardless of age, has the opportunity to learn and to grow. Expand your knowledge, both intellectual and spiritual, to the full stature of your divine potential” (“The Mighty Strength of the Relief Society,” Ensign, Nov. 1997).

Principle Number Three: We Need to Share This Vision with the People We Love

Lehi made more than a few attempts to help Laman and Lemuel understand the importance of the change they were making. The fact that they did not share their father’s vision caused them to murmur during the journey. Nephi, on the other hand, sought the Lord in order to see what his father had seen.

“And it came to pass after I, Nephi, having heard all the words of my father, concerning the things which he saw in a vision, I was desirous also that I might see, and hear, and know of these things, by the power of the Holy Ghost” (1 Nephi 10:17).

With this vision, Nephi was able not only to overcome the challenges of the journey but also to lead his family when it became necessary.

It is very likely that when we decide to take a certain path, the people we love will be affected, and some will even share with us the results of this choice. Ideally, they should be able to see what we see and share our same convictions. This is not always possible, but when it occurs, the journey is much easier."

Rescue in Unity

We all go through up's and down's. We always progressing to be better more each day. We all could find some service and help one another. This post is based on a October General Conference 2014 talk called "Rescue in Unity by Elder Chi Hong Wong."
I love the Image with a important quote to remember. I will share with you some highlights that I loved during reading the talk. 

"In our day, it might happen like this. Four people were fulfilling an assignment from their bishop to visit, at his home, a man who was sick with palsy. I can visualize one of them coming from the Relief Society, one from the elders quorum, one from the Aaronic Priesthood, and, last but not least, one full-time missionary. In the most recent ward council, after counseling together about the needs in the ward, the bishop had given out “rescuing” assignments.

These four were assigned to help this man suffering with palsy. They could not wait for him to come to church by himself. They had to go to his home and visit him. They had to seek him out, and so they went. The man was being brought to Jesus.

In order to assist the Savior, we have to work together in unity and in harmony. Everyone, every position, and every calling is important. We have to be united in our Lord Jesus Christ.

This rescue assignment needed everyone working together. At the crucial moment, it would take careful coordination to lower the man with palsy from the roof. The four people would have to work in unity and in harmony. There could not be any discord among the four. They would have to lower the man with palsy at the same pace. If someone released the rope faster than the other three, the man would fall out of his bed. He could not hold on by himself due to his weakened condition."

In your own time, you can read the whole talk, Here's the link below, and I hope you will enjoy reading it.

I encourage you to think about this question "What can I do today to help one another?" in your own time.

The Importance of Keeping a Journal

Some readers may not understand the importance of keeping a journal but that is okay.
Some readers may not have ideas to write in their journals but that is okay.
Some readers may not have a journal. 
Readers, I encourage you to keep a journal. A journal that you will write in it often. A journal could be filled with funny stories, how you are feeling today, what was the highlights that happened during the week and many more ideas.

I loved what Brad Wilcox says in the Image because it is true. Readers, take the advantage starting from today or tomorrow to get a journal and start writing in it. Some people probably use a journal to either take notes from what they felt or learning from reading their scriptures daily and/or taking notes for what they have learnt during class time for Church, such as Firesides, Classes, etc. 

When the journal is filled, it is worth to look back and read through it on the days that you feel down or happy in general. Please,  keep a journal. You can share others with what you have written in a journal if it isn't too personal.

Appreciate the Little Things

Sometimes in life we don't see the little things, it's either because we get too distracted or don't recognise it. When we get too distracted or don't recognise those little things, then we would become unknown to little things in life.

Little things can be simple. It can be like random act of kindness, such as letting your brother or your sister to know that you love them, making a new friend, and many more.

When we do recognise the little things in life, we have to something about it. We can't just act like nothing has happened and it wouldn't change a thing that it has happened. We can make those little things turned into big things. If we continue to allow those little things turn into big things, eventually  it will become an impact into your life.

For an example, you have decided to call a friend. It could be a friend who you haven't spoken to for quite some time or a friend you know who is struggling or a friend who loves to talk to you. He or she will appreciate your call. If he or she doesn't answer, leave a message.

Another example can be, aiming to go to the Temple once a month and change it to going to the Temple twice a month, Make a habit of attending often and you will be blessed. I have been going to the Temple often, and it has made known to the Temple workers to say "Welcome Sister Green" instead of calling me by name "Megan."

I encourage you to think about these two questions "What can I do to make the current little things turn into big things?" What are the little things that I appreciate for?" in your own time.

"I Love You" Say It, Mean It, and To Show It

This post is based on a October 2009 General Conference talk is called "More Diligent and Concerned at Home by David A. Bednar."

I will share with you some highlights that I loved while reading along with the video was playing the talk. "I want to suggest three ways each of us can become more diligent and concerned in our homes. 

Suggestion Number One: Express Love and Show It
Just as our love of and for the Lord is evidenced by walking ever in His ways (see Deuteronomy 19:9), so our love for spouse, parents, and children is reflected most powerfully in our thoughts, our words, and our deeds (see Mosiah 4:30).

Feeling the security and constancy of love from a spouse, a parent, or a child is a rich blessing. Such love nurtures and sustains faith in God. Such love is a source of strength and casts out fear (see 1 John 4:18). Such love is the desire of every human soul. We can become more diligent and concerned at home as we express love and consistently show it.

Suggestion Number Two: Bear Testimony and Live It
The relationship between testimony and appropriate action is emphasized in the Savior’s instruction to the Saints in Kirtland: “That which the Spirit testifies unto you even so I would that ye should do” (D&C 46:7). Our testimony of gospel truth should be reflected both in our words and in our deeds. And our testimonies are proclaimed and lived most powerfully in our own homes.
A testimony is what we know to be true in our minds and in our hearts by the witness of the Holy Ghost (see D&C 8:2). As we profess truth rather than admonish, exhort, or simply share interesting experiences, we invite the Holy Ghost to confirm the verity of our words. The power of pure testimony (see Alma 4:19) does not come from sophisticated language or effective presentation; rather, it is the result of revelation conveyed by the third member of the Godhead, even the Holy Ghost.

Suggestion Number Three: Be Consistent
“Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great” (D&C 64:33). Consistency is a key principle as we lay the foundation of a great work in our individual lives and as we become more diligent and concerned in our own homes.

Being consistent in our homes is important for another reason. Many of the Savior’s harshest rebukes were directed to hypocrites. Jesus warned His disciples concerning the scribes and Pharisees: “Do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not” (Matthew 23:3). This strong admonition is sobering given the counsel to “express love and show it,” to “bear testimony and live it,” and to “be consistent.”

As we seek the Lord’s help and in His strength, we can gradually reduce the disparity between what we say and what we do, between expressing love and consistently showing it, and between bearing testimony and steadfastly living it. We can become more diligent and concerned at home as we are more faithful in learning, living, and loving the restored gospel of Jesus Christ."

Strengthen in Charity

This post is based on a talk called "Strengthened in Charity by Elaine L. Jack from October General Conference 1996." Sister Jack has mentioned a lot that has stood out to me throughout the talk and I will share with you some highlights.
"As I have served in this calling, I have prayed that the Lord would help me understand the hearts of women in His Church. The heart is the key to our influence, for it counts and measures each kindness, each effort, each time we lift, praise, teach, or cheer one another. I have come to know that the hearts of Relief Society women are full of love. I have seen examples in every branch, ward, and stake I have visited, and I have heard of the goodness of the women of this Church in letters that bear testimony that “Charity Never Faileth.” Charity is work of the heart.

The Saviour said that “the great commandment in the law” is “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matthew. 22:36–37). When we love the Lord with all our mind, soul, and heart, we love others. And charity abounds."

"In the scriptures, we find many examples of women whose daily efforts reflected charity. With their hearts filled with the pure love of Christ, they responded to needs quickly and effectively." She mentions the example of Rebekah.

Rebekah, who eventually became the wife of Isaac and the mother of Jacob and Esau, was just such a woman. In the normal pattern of her daily tasks, she was kind to Abraham’s servant who was visiting her village on the dramatic mission to secure a wife for Isaac.

The Lord knew Rebekah’s heart; he knew how she would respond when she observed a need. He answered the servant’s prayer that the young woman who was to become Isaac’s wife would offer him water.

In Genesis we read, “Behold, Rebekah came out with her pitcher upon her shoulder” and went down to the well (Genesis. 24:15). You know that story. The servant asked for a drink. Whole family trees hung in the balance of her answer. She said, “Drink, my lord,” and then added, “I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.

“And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels” (Genesis. 24:18–20). Her brother Laban invited him to lodge, and not until the servant was introduced did she discover he was the servant of her uncle. Her charitable response to this stranger was automatic. She did not stop to think, I am giving service, nor did she consider the station of the one in need. She hastened to serve water to camels.

Respectfully, she offered an act of service, a simple one, and from that act was born a family of great influence for whole dispensations. Rebekah loved with worthiness and willingness as a daughter of God. Remember the question, Who can gauge the reach of our goodness?

From her we learn that charity, though often quantified as the action, is actually the state of the heart that prompts us to love one another. She offered water. It was in the offering that charity was manifest."

Choose This Day

This post is based on a April 2007 General Conference talk called "This Day by Henry B. Eyring." I loved listening and watching the Video below. If you have 5 minutes now or find 5 minutes in your spare time, I encourage you to watch the Video.
If you can't see the Video above, here's the link below

Readers, what did you think about the Video if you did watch it?
What did you learn from watching the Video? Do you like the Video?

I will be sharing with you some highlights that I liked while reading the talk.

"The quiet invitation to you may be to do so simple a thing as to forgive someone who has offended you. You can do that from a hospital bed. It may be to go to help someone who is hungry. But if you decide not to wait until you have more strength and more money, and if you pray for the Holy Spirit as you go, you will when you arrive know what to do and how to help someone even poorer than you are.

You may find when you get there that they were praying and expecting that someone like you would come, in the name of the Lord.

For those who are discouraged by their circumstances and are therefore tempted to feel they cannot serve the Lord this day, I make you two promises. Hard as things seem today, they will be better in the next day if you choose to serve the Lord this day with your whole heart. Your circumstances may not be improved in all the ways which you desire.

But you will have been given new strength to carry your burdens and new confidence that when your burdens become too heavy, the Lord, whom you have served, will carry what you cannot. He knows how. He prepared long ago. He suffered your infirmities and your sorrows when He was in the flesh so that He would know how to succour you.
You may remember the scripture: “I say unto you, I would that ye should remember to retain the name written always in your hearts that ye hear and know the voice by which ye shall be called, and also, the name by which he shall call you.

By serving Him this day, you will come to know Him better. You will feel His love and appreciation. You would not want to delay receiving that blessing. And feeling His love will draw you back to His service, wiping away both complacency and discouragement.

As you serve Him, you will come to know better the voice by which you shall be called. When you go to sleep at the end of a day, the words may come back in memory: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things.”

Between Hope and Faith

This post is short and sweet. This post is based on a song called "Fine Lines by Kent Moran" and it's a song that played during a section from a movie called "Listen To Your Heart."

Readers, I encourage you all to think about the following questions;
What is Hope? What does Hope means to you?
What is Faith? What does Faith means to you?

Below is the Video of the song. I hope you can see the Video.
If you can't see the Video above, here's the link below

What did you think about when listening to the song if you did listened to it? If you haven't heard the song, I encourage you to listen to it in your own time. What was your favourite part of the song?
I love a part of the song. That part of the song is shown on the Image above.

It's so true what it says, because almost everything we all need hope and faith and does makes starts to know to understanding what is hope and faith.

I don't see myself without having Hope and Faith in my daily life and I don't see others without having Hope and Faith in their daily lives too. Readers, I don't know what you can get out of this post by reading it. I think the most important would be having the understanding of what Hope is and what Faith is.

Beyond Comparison

I love a quote from Sunday afternoon session of October General Conference 2014 from the first speaker who was M Russell. Ballard. His talk was on "Stay in the Boat and Hold On!" This post is based on that talk and I hope you will gain a few things to some things throughout this blog post. 
He mentioned 2 occasions and mentioned President Young reminded us. One of the occasions that he mentioned was "On another occasion, President Young said that he also worried about people losing their way when they were being blessed when life was good: “It is in calm weather, when the old ship of Zion is sailing with a gentle breeze, [and] when all is quiet on deck, that some of the brethren want to go out in the whaling boats to have a swim, and some get drowned, others drifted away, and others again get back to the ship. Let us stick to the old ship and she will carry us [safely] into the harbor; you need not be concerned."

He asked us "Given the challenges we all face today, how do we stay on the Old Ship Zion?" He explained of how we can.

This is what he mentioned "Here is how. We need to experience a continuing conversion by increasing our faith in Jesus Christ and our faithfulness to His gospel throughout our lives not just once but regularly. Alma asked, “And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren [and sisters], if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?"

In your own time, you can continue reading the talk or watch the video, here's the link below for the talk.

Someone may ask me how does it applies to us; Well it applies to us by remaining to stay strong in the Church, read scriptures, daily personal prayers, attending the Temple often, attending Church activities, fulfilling Church callings  and gaining and building a stronger testimony. It helps you to build your faith more into Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father.

Please remember of the quote that I have shared with you.

Past, Future and Present

This post is based on a April General Conference 2003 talk called "In Search of Treasure by Thomas S Monson." I love the image below.
I will share with you of the highlights that I loved throughout the talk.

"The promised reward was not a treasure of ivory, gold, or silver. Neither did it consist of acres of land or a portfolio of stocks and bonds. The Master spoke of riches within the grasp of all even joy unspeakable here and eternal happiness hereafter.

Today I have chosen to provide the three pieces of your treasure map to guide you to your eternal happiness. They are:

1. Learn from the past.
2. Prepare for the future.
3. Live in the present.

First, learn from the past. Each of us has a heritage whether from pioneer forebears, later converts, or others who helped to shape our lives. This heritage provides a foundation built of sacrifice and faith. Ours is the privilege and responsibility to build on such firm and stable footings.

Second, prepare for the future. We live in a changing world. Technology has altered nearly every aspect of our lives. We must cope with these advances even these cataclysmic changes in a world of which our forebears never dreamed.

Remember the promise of the Lord: “If ye are prepared ye shall not fear.” Fear is a deadly enemy of progress.

Third, live in the present. Sometimes we let our thoughts of tomorrow take up too much of today. Daydreaming of the past and longing for the future may provide comfort but will not take the place of living in the present. This is the day of our opportunity, and we must grasp it."

Matthew, Chapter 6
19, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20, “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Listen to The Promptings

This post is based on a talk from L. Tom Perry of October General Conference last year. The talk is called "Finding Lasting Peace and Building Eternal Families." 
I love a quote from General Conference, and if you can't see the Image that has the quote, it says "We must never let the noise of the world overpower and overwhelm that still, small voice. - L. Tom Perry."

I will share with you some of the things that I liked throughout this talk.

"For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do” (2 Nephi 32:5).

"We certainly have been warned of events that we will be facing in our day. Our challenge will be how we prepare for the events the Lord has said are surely still to come.

Many in our worried society understand that the disintegration of the family will bring only sorrow and hopelessness into a troubled world. As members of the Church, we have the responsibility to preserve and protect the family as the basic unit of society and eternity. The prophets have warned and forewarned about the inevitable and destructive consequence of a deterioration of family values.

As the world continues to watch us, let us be certain that our example will sustain and support the plan the Lord has designed for His children here in mortality. The greatest teaching of all must be done by righteous example. Our homes must be holy places in order to stand against the pressures of the world. Remember that the greatest of all the blessings of the Lord come through and are given to righteous families."
