Once again we have a 5th Thursday which means we share something that has helped us recently. This week instead of full talks that have been helpful I thought it would be a great treat to share a quote or saying that help us. One of my favorites I found in the book I am a Mother by Jane Clayson Johnson. She quoted Elder Jeffrey R. Holland from his book, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. This quote has been a great anchor for me during times of hard decisions and personal growth. I hope you will enjoy the message for you.
"In those crucial moments of pivotal personal history we must submit ourselves to God even when all our hopes and fears may tempt us otherwise. We must be willing to place all we have-not just our possessions....but also our ambition and pride, and stubbornness, and vanity, on the Altar of God, kneel in silent submission, and willingly walk away."
Please feel free to share your favorite quote or thought by either posting it as a comment to this post or emailing it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post it for you.
The opportunity to learn the gospel is just as important as the admonition to teach the gospel. In D&C 50: 22, we read the following: "Wherefore, he that preacheth and he that receiveth, understand one another, and both are edified and rejoice together." Let us teach and receive of one another so we can ALL be edified and rejoice together in the sweetness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Have a joy-full week~
