Words of Wisdom

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of — throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage, but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
-C.S. Lewis

"God will put prepared people in the way of His prepared servants who want to share the gospel.  You have had that happen in your own life.  How often depends on the preparation of you mind and heart."  - President Henry B. Eyring

"'How can you tell if someone is converted to Jesus Christ?'... The best and most clear indicator that we are progressing spiritually and coming unto Christ is the way we treat other people.'" - Elder Marvin J. Ashton

"Gratitude is the mark of a noble soul and a refined character.  We like to be around those who are grateful.  They tend to brighten all around them.  They make others fell better about themselves.  They tend to be more humble, more joyful, more likable."  - Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

 "Nothing is more urgent than being kind to ourselves and present for our families."  -Kelle Hampton
