I like to teach Exodus 25-31 by first starting out talking about why the Lord wanted them to have a tabernacle in the first place, and then liken this to our day to show why the Lord has us build … Continue reading →

I should like to tell you an experience I had while laboring as a missionary in New Bedford, Massachusetts, some years ago. We were approaching the Easter Sunday, and I had a discussion with a minister of the gospel about … Continue reading →
Last night I lay awake in my bed, stressed about so many things going on in my life. I started to feel anxious, angry, emotional, and a little sad. In the midst of my mind running a million miles an hour, a gentle reminder from deep within stirred my s…
Lately, I have noticed an unfortunate trend in our society–-so many people are eager to say something cruel, harsh, negative, or controversial. They want to be the first to gossip about, make fun of, or criticize others and their decisions. Especially with the ability to hide behind a social media profile, people are saying anything that comes to their minds. It is definitely a trend that I do NOT want to be a part of.
When I think about the Savior, I think of all the good and kind things He had to say. He taught truth and lived truth. He kept His mouth shut at times, reprimanded in love at other times, but mostly told people how much He loved them and desired for them to return to live with Heavenly Father. Christ spoke with charity, setting an example for us to do the same.
Next time you are itching to post a negative comment on a friend’s status update, share your opinion about an outfit a certain person was wearing, or even speak with your children who may be frustrating you, remember the words of a familiar hymn: “Perhaps today there are loving words which Jesus would have me speak.”
You may never know how much good you will do by sharing a kind and loving word. But I can almost assure you that you won’t ever regret choosing loving words over unkind words.
I love the Book of Mormon. One of the greatest messages that stands out to me as I read is the call for us as individuals to come unto Christ. That message was the youth theme last year, and I’m sure that the youth were so blessed by the teachings they…

The August Visiting Teaching Message focuses on the divine mission of Jesus Christ as our Messiah. I love this quote from the message from Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “[Jesus Christ] is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. He is the promised Messiah. He lived a perfect life and atoned for our sins. He will ever be […]
The July visiting teaching message focuses on the divine mission of the Savior and his role as our advocate. I loved this quote from Elder D. Todd Christofferson, “It is of great significance to me, that I may at any moment and in any circumstance approach through prayer the throne of grace, that my Heavenly Father will hear my petition, […]
Giveaway below sponsored by TheLDSStore.com. The June Visiting Teaching Message is titled The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Minister. My favorite quote and thus the one that made the handout is simple, four words actually, but powerful. First observe, then serve. Linda K. Burton hit the nail on the head. We should watch out for […]

I have a challenge for all of the fathers out there. This morning, after I had spent about an hour exercising with my five children (ages 2-11), I remembered a quote from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf that said,“In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time.” (“Of Things That Matter Most,” Ensign, Nov. 2010. See also, “T-I-M-E Spells Love”) As I recalled this quote, I thought, “In what ways […]

Verily I say unto you, even as I am. The youth theme for this month is Becoming More Christlike. The topic I taught on today was “How can I become more Christlike?” I really felt that the message portrayed was important for all of us, so I decided to share it as my post for this…
