How do we become people who other people need? The Lord has made us this way. He has given each of us the responsibility to serve and care for others.
Sometimes you may feel alone when you are reaching out to others, but with Christ you are never alone.
I am really impressed with this quote and thought I would share it with you today…. I may have shared it before, but it is such a good scripture:
“That which doth not edify is not of God, and is darkness. That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.” –Doctrine and Covenants 50:23-24
Do the things that you do in your everyday life edify? Do the things that you listen to, watch, or view edify you?
This video really touched me today. I hope you are touched by it as well and perhaps want to be a little better because of it.

1 Timothy 4: 12 says:
12 Let no man a thy youth; but be thou an b of the believers, in word, in c, in charity, in spirit, in faith, ind.
This is a video of a young woman who is an example of the believers. You and I too can be an example of the believers.
As I was studying this morning this phrase stuck out to me in 2 Nephi 19:3 when Isaiah speaks of the Messiah:
“Thou hast multiplied the nation, and increased the joy–they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest.”
I have never thought of increasing joy in such a way. The Savior did increase the joy of those around Him. So what exactly is joy?
An online dictionary defines joy as the following:
the emotion of great delight or happiness
caused bysomething exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure;elation: She felt the joy of seeing her son’s success.
a source or cause of keen pleasure or delight; something orsomeone greatly valued or appreciated: Her prose style is apure joy.
or display of glad feeling; festive gaiety.
a state of happiness or felicity.”
The Lord helps us to have a pure state of happiness. His happiness and joy is long-lasting. He increases joy by helping people to realize their full potential and building people up.
Do you increase the joy?
Do you increase the joy of those around you? This is the Christmas season. The season of Christ, where we can have that spirit. It truly is a time to sing and exclaim “Joy to the World.” We have great reason to have joy. Let us strive to increase the joy around us this day. It will truly bring us happiness.
The Book of Mormon truly is another testament of Jesus Christ. Through the hardest times in my life, I have found comfort, strength, and guidance through its pages and passages. I have learned to rely more on my Savior and how to become more like Him. I would invite each of you to read the Book of Mormon. If you do so prayerfully and with a sincere heart, it can change your lives for the better, to better know your Savior and His gospel. He loves you.
