“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
Girl: I don't remember your name, I'm terrible with names.
Me: You were my visiting teacher...
Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Saturday afternoon session of the Church’s 181st Semiannual General Conference, October 1, 2011 (via mormonchannel)
Hello lovely people. I just wanted to stop by and say that I am leaving t-stake (at least the Facebook group)! You are all fantastic but even though I’m not super active in here I really don’t need a lot of the negativity from here in my life. You are all beautiful, each and every one of you, and I wish you the best.
2 Nephi 1:15, keep on keepin’ on, the church is true, love y’all,
President Thomas S. Monson
