Words of Wisdom

"It's OK if you don't know how much more you can handle. It's fine if you don't know what to do next. Eventually, you will let go of how things should be and start to see possibilities based on reality. It's YOUR life. Grasp the steering wheel and force yourself to pay attention to where you are going." - Wendy Keller

"The key to change... is to let go of fear. Don't let fear run your life. Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing. You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith. Don't let your fear of the past affect the presence of your future. Live for what tomorrow has to bring, not what yesterday has taken away." -SQ

"Let your smile change the world but don't let the world change your smile."

"Go in the direction of your FEARS for it will grow the underdeveloped part of your soul" - A yoga instructor

"Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith in God."

Patricia Holland:  "...If we are to search for real light and eternal certainties, we have to pray as the ancients prayed.  We are women now, not children, and we are expected to pray with maturity.  The words most often used to describe urgent, prayerful labor are wrestle, plead, cry, and hunger.  In some sense, prayer may be the hardest work we ever will engage in, and perhaps it should be."

"Those who move forward with a happy spirit will find that things always work out."

~President Gordon B. Hinckley
