It Takes an Act of Faith


There have been times in my life when I have felt encompassed in darkness.  I have also reached the point where I have wanted and even tried to end my life… but somehow, I am still here.  I am still needed, as are you.  You are needed.  The Lord needs YOU on HIS side.



Your Potential


Are you living up to your potential?  What do you want to be?  What have been your dreams?  They don’t just fly away for something practical.  Live your dream.  “Be Alive, Find your passion, and Pursue it with all your heart.”

Don’t fall beneath your privileges or your potential.


Kindness will get you far in life.

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.

Let Us Be Men

You are not alone

“It is your reaction to adversity, not the adversity itself that will determine your life story”


Who do you want to become?

I thought this was a very good question:  Who do you want to become?  As I was studying this morning, I came across this question in the Ensign magazine.  It was in this quote by Gary E Stevenson:

“Remember, what you do, where you go, and what you see will shape who you become.  Who do you want to become?”

If we ponder on that quote for a while, it makes us want to be better people.  Well, it at least makes me want to be a better person.  I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and the love that He has bestowed upon me.  I do want to become His daughter.  I am willing to give up everything for that blessing.
