“As one of His Apostles, authorized to bear witness of Him, I solemnly testify that I know that the Savior lives, that He is a resurrected, glorified personage of perfect love.” —Elder Richard G. Scott

i love this picture of Elder Richard G. Scott and his wife Jeannene that he so often spoke of. 

What a joyful reunion in Heaven they must be having!!! His sensitive and heartfelt talks in 

General Conference will be greatly missed though! He was always able to speak as if he

were carrying on a one-on-one conversation even though he was speaking to a worldwide 

audience. So grateful for his example and testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

"It's so important for girls to respect themselves and not put themselves down and say, 'Oh, my life is horrible,' and 'I'm not pretty enough.' How do you know? There's this energy people give off that people can be drawn to."

We were just watching a little clip of David Archuleta singing the song "If the Savior stood beside me" and i told Lizzy he was a missionary and learned spanish on his mission(he sang part of the song in spanish).  Lizzy said, "so he doesn't have a wife then? Can i marry him?" i explained to her that he will probably be married by the time she was old enough to get married and she said "well maybe he won't be married when i get older and he can be my husband"  Oh boy, this little four year old is in love with David Archuleta!!! Too cute, i couldn't stop smiling! I hope and pray she will marry a       return missionary that loves the Lord and loves her too! Now i sometimes call her "Mrs Archuleta" just for fun!!!!

You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.
Maya Angelou
this quote made me think of how Jesus' motivation was love. His work and His glory will come to pass because of His love! 

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to see, to find, and not to yield.
