Improve the Shining Moments

My mission has gone by so fast thus far. I feel that while I may not have "Improved the Shining Moments" as well as I could have, I have seen amazing blessings in my life and in other's lives. This life is short, in the eternal perspective, but it is a time in which we learn the most. Make the most of the life you have been given.

When we believe something and act on that belief, it's called Faith.

Of life, winds, and sails.

"So much in life depends on our attitude. The way we choose to see things and respond to others makes all the difference. To do the best we can and then to choose to be happy about our circumstances, whatever they may be, can bring peace and contentment...We can’t direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails. For maximum happiness, peace, and contentment, may we choose a positive attitude." - Thomas S. Monson

Let us have Charity

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." Matthew 5:44-45

Be not afraid

It is easy to let fear prevent us from believing, but life isn't meant to be easy. For the Saviors atonement to help us, we must sometimes take a leap of faith. Christ will always overcome fear, if we will but let his spirit into our hearts.

O man remember!

"But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words, and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not." -Mosiah 4:30

Believe In God

Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. Mosiah 4:9

A post from my companion!

I testify that this is true! Joseph Smith was the prophet through whom Christ restored His Church.
What happened here did change the world. Let it change you for the better so that you can feel the great blessings in your life from the restored gospel.

Let him be your minister

As the savior said, "Whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister" Let us be humble and serve one another.

The wise words of a fortune cookie...

As the wise words of the fortune cookie state: Failure now doesn't mean we will fail later. If you have tripped up, take the Savior's extended hand and rise above who you were before.

My family sent me this valentine, that really helped me apply the gospel to even this unlikely holiday. Our Heavenly Father loves us very much, so much so that gave is His son a sacrifice, that through Him we can return in happiness to our Heavenly Father.

If we would but listen

The Gospel is always available to us, but before we can have the happiness that living it brings we must first be ready and willing to listen.   see Matthew 11:15

"And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. And whatsoever thing is good is just and true; wherefore, nothing that is good denieth the Christ, but acknowledgeth that he is." -Moroni 10:5-6

An anchor to the souls of men

Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.

Doctrine and Covenants 11:20

Our work in this life is to keep the commandments. Christ's work is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. That's why he gives us commandments. If following them brings eternal life...Why not follow them!

Proverbs 1:33

Through Christ's Atonement there is a peace and hope that drives out fear of evil. Let us live the Gospel of Christ and keep his commandments.

Walk in the Spirit

After baptism by one holding the priesthood authority of God, the gift of the Holy ghost is conferred. The gift of the Holy Ghost gives one the right to the constant companionship and guidance of the Spirit as long as one remains worthy. Let us live in the Spirit, and walk in the Spirit.
