Love it. Rejoice in it. Delight in your opportunities.


"It is not without a recognition of life’s tempests but directly because of them that I testify of God’s love and the Savior’s power to calm the storm. They sustain us in our hour of need--and always will, even if we cannot recognize that intervention. Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don’t come until heaven; but for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.” -Jeffrey R. Holland

"Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ -- that is the first principle of the gospel. We must go forward. God expects you to have enough faith, determination, and trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, and keep rejoicing. He expects you not simply to face the future; He expects you to embrace and shape the future -- to love it, rejoice in it, and delight in your opportunities." -Jeffery R. Holland

I feel so incredibly grateful and humbled to have such great friends and examples...all of them doing such worthy and admirable things in their lives right now--going on missions, setting their sights and making it to the Temple (before missions or with their Eternal Companions), and pursuing education. In Relief Society today, we had a lesson that reminded me that we are all children of God and He looks out for us. He recognizes the desires of our hearts and He wants us to continue in faith towards Him. I just feel so much joy and happiness from this Gospel. It is the most real and true thing that I know.
