Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
This quote just reminded me of how powerful prayer is and how we really should pray about any problem we have- small or large.

This is such a wonderful quote- how many times do we hold back kind words? Whether out of jealousy, or bitterness or maybe we think 'so and so' already knows how great she is at this or that. There are so many reasons. One thing I'm trying to teach my kids is that saying something kind about somebody else or to somebody else doesn't take away anything from us.
So today, share kindness. Build each other up. Say those kind thoughts. You really don't know what is going on in someone else's life and you're kind words just might change that person's entire day.
Family arrangements will be more wonderful than you can imagine
-President Henry B. Eyring-
I LOVE this month's first presidency message. Every month, our church publishes a magazine called the Ensign. In it, our Prophet and other members of the First Presidency, write a message. I aboslutley loved this message by President Eyring, who is the First Counselor in the First Presidency.
He said, "A prophet of God once offered me counsel that gives me peace. I was worried that the choices of others might make it impossible for our family to be together forever. He said, “You are worrying about the wrong problem. You just live worthy of the celestial kingdom, and the family arrangements will be more wonderful than you can imagine.”
To all of those whose personal experience or whose marriage and children—or absence thereof—cast a shadow over their hopes, I offer my witness: Heavenly Father knows and loves you as His spirit child. While you were with Him and His Beloved Son before this life, They placed in your heart the hope you have of eternal life. With the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ working and with the Holy Spirit guiding, you can feel now and will feel in the world to come the family love your Father and His Beloved Son want so much for you to receive.
I testify that as you live worthy of the celestial kingdom, the prophetic promise that “family arrangements will be more wonderful than you can imagine” will be yours."
