“I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”
— Majorie Pay Hinckley

 

Among the two-thirds who remained, it is highly probable, that there were many who were not valiant in the war, but whose sins were of such a nature that they could be forgiven through faith in the future suffering of the Only Begotten of the Father, and through their sincere repentance and reformation. We see no impropriety in Jesus offering Himself as an acceptable offering and sacrifice before the Father to atone for the sins of His brethren, committed, not only in the second, but also in the first estate.

If your self-worth is based on anything besides your relationship with Christ, you are in trouble.

It is so wonderful to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Lol the funny thing is I literally just watched the video of you meeting Andrew hales..I didn't think I'd find the pic 😂

This always resurfaces again randomly. Shameless fangirl right here.

It is certain that one who studies the scriptures ever day accomplishes far more than one who devotes considerable time one day and then lets days go before continuing. Not only should we study each day, but there should be regular time set aside when we can concentrate without interference.

How do you learn to pray? Well how do you learn to swim? Do you sit in a chair with your feet up drinking coke learning to swim? You get down and you struggle. That’s how you learn to pray.

I can now say that I have officially been discriminated against by a guy because I am a female who has not served a mission.

I knew this was going to happen when they lowered the age requirement.

Me too, and now that the girls who left right when the mission age change happened are coming home, I’m seeing it more prevalently. I can take consolation in the fact that I wouldn’t want to date (or marry) a guy that thinks a woman is only spiritual if she serves a mission anyways.

I'm really, really sorry that so many guys can just be total turd babies all the time. You don't need to go on a mission to be a great person. They do need to pull their heads out of their butts to be great people. So, yeah. You deserve better.

Wise words from a wise man.

It is not just that the Book of Mormon teaches us truth, though it indeed does that. It is not just that the Book of Mormon bears testimony of Christ, though it indeed does that too. But there is something more. There is a power in the book which will begin to flow into your lives the minute you begin a serious study of the book. You will find a greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception.
