Happy Sunday Everyone!
I absolutely loved church today! We had a sweet little youth speaker give a talk on Individual Worth and how we are all loved by our Heavenly Father. It doesn't matter if we are popular by the world's standards, what is important is how we view ourselves and how our Father views us. We should all remember when we look in the mirror that we are daughters and sons of a Heavenly King and he knows us individually and loves us. Love it!
Let's start with a sweet song called Consider the Lilies by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I hope you will feel the Spirit bring peace and love to your heart.
Tonight a dear sister from my Relief Society returned home from active duty overseas. She was away from her family for over 5 months. We decided to surprise her by putting signs up in her driveway and welcoming her home. It was so good to see her safely home with her family. We have missed her!
Here are my favorite scriptures from today's reading. I hope you will share your thoughts and feelings about your reading today.
I love the following about King Mosiah. He worked along with his people so he did not become a burden to them. What a wonderful way to lead, through serving others.
"And king Mosiah did cause his people that they should till the earth. And he also, himself, did till the earth, that thereby he might not become burdensome to his people, that he might do according to that which his father had done in all things. And there was no contention among all his people for the space of three years."
"But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage."
I hope you all have a great night!
