Being With You

While studying about patience this week I prayed for Gods help.... And He gave me many opportunities to do so. One moment was sitting in the car for 30 minutes at a complete standstill due to an accident. The words of my mother ran through my mind as I sat with my companion and two ward members, when I was young we and we were out and about if we ran into heavy traffic she would look at me, smile and say "now I get to spend more time with my pretty princess!" What a perfect example of patience, and for that whole half an hour we were able to talk, get to know one another more and set a plan for helping a young lady come to church. Patience is more than simply waiting it is learning and growing and enjoying every moment we have between her and our destination.

This week we begin our study of humility! One conference talk that will help us start off this week is about how we view others and how we can uplift and strengthen through humility :) here's the link, let me know what you learn!

Never Give Up!

What have you come to discover that you know as you have studied about knowledge?
I realized that the simple truths I over look are a deep knowledge of my Father in Heaven and His love for me. I know that He sent His son to this earth, to suffer, die and be resurrected so that I can live with Him again! This knowledge helps me everyday as I face what life gives me.

Now we are blessed to begin patience!
When we are patient we are able to wait through all the that is given us. God does have a plan for each of us, He longs to bless us.... but sometimes we have to wait... and wait ... and wait... and then finally see God work in our lives. :)

This video is a reminder that when we wait patiently God will give us blessings. (we will get two marshmallows!)

What Do I Know?

Have you ever thought about what you really know? There's so much that we learn and much that we forget instantly after having learned it... but learning and knowing seem to be different. Think about if for a second, what are somethings that you KNOW?
This week we will be learning about knowledge together. I love the scripture in Proverbs 18:15 "The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge" while studying this week let us look for ways to become wise, by gaining a knowledge of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
To start us off we can read what a prophet says he has come to know :) Here's the link!

Returning To Virtue



When looking at the world we are horrified at all the filth that is in the media and in the lives of all around us. We may even at times become discouraged thinking that we and those we love are distended to be a part of this world..... This week we are studying about a Christ like attribute that will change this problem in our lives, it will allow us to over come the world, Virtue! Sister Elaine S. Dalton saw this problem in the world of losing our moral footing and in 2008 called for "a return to virtue" in this great call she invites all to make a personal training program, she says:
"What can each of us do to begin our return to virtue? The course and the training program will be unique to each of us. I have derived my personal training program from instructions found in the scriptures" (A Return to Virtue)
As we return to virtue we will see the joy that come from living lives full of goodness and hope. This week as you study virtue make a training program for yourself. :)

Lasting Love



Have you felt Christ's love working through you this week as you've studied Charity? Being guided to move by the love or our Savior is deep and leaves a lasting impression on you and those who's lives you touch. We each have the want to serve and love. Continue to colt invade that Charity and feel the Savior reach out through you. There is a conference talk by an apostle named President Henry B. Eyring tilted "the caregiver" in his words you will find peace and know how you can better build and move on Christ's love.

Christ's Love

This week we have the great opportunity of studying about Charity, I started this morning and love this simple declaration “But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.” (Moroni 7:47) Charity is Christ's love that we have the privileged of feeling and understanding for ourselves! This will be a remarkable week as we together learn to feel and understand how Christ loves each and every person :)

Hope Moves Us

While studying Hope this week I have come to understand that it means trusting in God, especially when things get hard! It means turning to Him and having enough faith in His promises. This video is a great reminder that we must put our hope in action by searching a believing that all will be made right ;)
