The Lord is in control. He knows the end from the beginning. He has given us adequate instruction that, if followed, will see us safely through any crisis. His purposes will be fulfilled, and someday we will understand the eternal reasons for all of these events. Therefore, today we must be careful to not overreact, nor should we be caught up in extreme preparations, but what we must do is keep the commandments of God and never loose hope!
There is no one perfect way to be a good mother… Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children… What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else.
I surely know that there is no role in life more essential and more eternal than that of motherhood.
It may not always be easy, convenient, or politically correct to stand for truth and right, but it is the right thing to do. Always.
The joy in motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times, but amid the challenges there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.
Remember, you can be exalted without a college degree. You can be exalted without being slender and beautiful. You can be exalted without having a successful career. You can be exalted if you are not rich and famous. So focus the best that you can on those things in life that will lead you back to the presence of God – keeping all things in their proper balance.
Remove any of your fear with faith. Trust the power of God to guide you.
Jesus Christ can help us fix anything that needs fixing in our lives.
What matters most is what lasts the longest and families are forever.
In your morning prayer each new day, ask Heavenly Father to guide you to recognize an opportunity to serve one of His precious children. Then go throughout the day with your heart full of faith and love, looking for someone to help. Stay focused, just like the honeybees focus on the flowers from which to gather nectar and pollen. If you do this, your spiritual sensitivities will be enlarged and you will discover opportunities to serve that you never before realized were possible.
Attitude is an important part of the foundation upon which we build a productive life. A good attitude produces good results, a fair attitude poor results, a poor attitude poor results. We each shape our own life, and the shape of it is determined largely by our attitude.
We can become the masters of our own destinies by practicing self-discipline and by setting worthy goals that will lead to higher ground so that we can become what our heavenly father wants us to become.
Remember that our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ, know you best and love you the most.
If your dream requires patience, give it.
Pollinate the world with the pure love of Christ.
Members are more likely to seek counsel from leaders from whom they feel sincere love emanating.
I believe you can train yourself to become a positive thinker, but you must cultivate a desire to develop the skill of setting personal worthy and realistic goals. I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don’t set goals in our life and learn how to master the technique of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our life only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When you learn to master the principle of setting a goal, you will then be able to make a great difference in the results you attain in this life.
It is only when we love God and Christ with all of our hearts, souls, and minds that we are able to share this love with our neighbors through acts of kindness and service… When this pure love of Christ – or charity – envelops us, we think, feel, and act more like Heavenly Father and Jesus would think, feel, and act. Our motivation and heartfelt desire are like unto that of the Savior.
When we learn to expect more success than failure in life, we soon will develop an attitude of success.
There is no problem in the family, ward, or stake that cannot be solved if we look for solutions in the Lord’s way by counseling – really counseling – with one another.
Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the source of spiritual power that will give you and me the assurance that we have nothing to fear.
Pray for divine guidance in your goal setting
The central activity of leadership is teaching – first by example, second by precept.
It is impossible for us to fail when we do our best when we are on the Lord’s errand.
It is important to be still and listen and follow the Spirit.
