Here are some of the quotes from this past weekend that spoke the most to me:
Soon I will show you what went on in our home while we were watching it. :)
Elaine S. Dalton:
Speaking to fathers of daughters: "Be an active part in her life. And if in her teenage years she should not come home from a date on time, go get her. She will resist and tell you that you've ruined her social life, but she will inwardly know that you love her and that you care enough to be her guardian."
Just had to show her 3 new granddaughters!
Elder Robert D. Hales:
"Every one of us is more beloved to the Lord than we can possibly understand or imagine. Let us therefore be kinder to one another and kinder toward ourselves."
Neal L Anderson:
He was quoting President Monson, “If you are concerned about providing financially for a wife and family, there is no shame in a couple having to scrimp and save. It is generally during these challenging times that you will grow closer together as you learn to sacrifice and to make difficult decisions.”
Go here to watch his talk in full.
"Giving our time in the service of others is pleasing to God and...such will draw us nearer to Him... Place the Lord and our families at the top of the list."
Elder Tad R. Callister:
"That is the genius of the Book of Mormon-there is no middle ground. It is either the word of God as professed, or it is a total fraud. This book does not merely claim to be a moral treatise, or commentary, or collection of insightful writings. It claims to be the word of God--every sentence, every verse, every page."
Quentin L. Cook:
"We should be grateful for the all the tender mercies that come into our lives. We are unaware of a host of blessings that we receive from day to day."
Elder Robert D. Hales:
"Waiting upon the Lord (as in waiting for answers to prayers) gives us a priceless opportunity to discover that there are many who wait upon us. Our children wait upon us to show patience, love, and understanding toward them. Our parents wait upon us to show gratitude and compassion. Our brothers and sisters wait upon us to be tolerant, merciful, and forgiving. Our spouses wait upon us to love them as the Savior has loved each one of us."
Behaviors which once were considered inappropriate and immoral are now not only tolerated but also viewed by ever so many as acceptable. The laws of God remain constant. They have not changed; they will not change. The 10 commandments are just that; commandments. They are not suggestions. They are every bit as requisite today, as they were when God gave them to the children of Israel."
