What is most important in your life?

What is most important in your life?

Families can be together forever… they are the ones who stay around when the going gets rough.  They love you.



Making Friends


I think that a huge part about making friends is being a friend to yourself.  Sometimes this is not a very easy thing to do?  But how can we love others if we do not first feel love ourselves?

The two great commandments are to love God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself.  In these two commandments there are three parties that require loving:  yourself, God, and your neighbor…If you had to put these in order of importance to love, what would it be?

It would be 1.  Love God 2.  Love yourself and 3.  Love your neighbor

Part of making friends is being a friend to yourself.  Happiness comes one step at a time, and it does include love.

Family Time

A New Year

How do your closest friends make you feel?

How do your closest friends make you feel?

Each new year we have the opportunity to make new goals for ourselves.  Perhaps this year we can work on the relationships we have with others.  How are you treating your spouse? friends? children? co-workers?  Do you see something in them that is not quite right?  Are you looking through clean windows as you look at them?


The things that matter most



Life is full of things.  Those things that are good.  Those things that are better; and those things that are best.  Which are we filling our life with?  I know that as I study the scriptures and as I am working to deepen my relationship with others, I am doing those things that matter most.




The things that matter most in this life are often related to our families. Are we doing the things that matter most? Are we doing those things that are best? Or are we filling our time with those things that are good or better, but not best?



Spend your time with the moments that matter most. These are the most precious moments of your life. I love playing with my nieces. They bring me so much joy. I am sure you love spending time with your family as well. I love this quote from President Thomas S. Monson:

“Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.”
