And if ye do this with a pure heart, in all faithfulness, ye shall be blessed; you shall be blessed in your flocks, and in your herds, and in your fields, and in your houses, and in your families.
-Doctrine and Covenants 136:11
"No family can have peace, no home can be free from storms of adversity, unless that family and that home are built on foundations of morality, fidelity, and mutual respect. There cannot be peace where there is no trust; there cannot be freedom where there is not loyalty. The warm sunlight of love will not rise out of a swamp of immorality".
-Gordon B. Hinckley

Out With The Old, In With The New

I got a MY JEEP RUBICON! Just Kidding! Oh how I wish I weren't though! When someone tells you, you can't have something that you really want, it makes it that much more desirable! This beauty will one day be mine...until then....
Yup I'm blonde again! Feeling as though I am in a "protection program" I have opted for a new look!

But seek ye first the kindom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
-Matthew 6: 33
There must be purpose in our lives. We are here to accomplish something, to bless society with our talents and our learning. There ce be fun, yes. But there must be recognition of the fact that life is serious, that the risks are great, but that we can overcome them if we will discipline ourselves and seek the unfailing strength of the Lord.

True To The Cause

And they were exceedingly valiant for courage and also for strength and activity; but behold, this was not all-they were men who were true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted.
-Alma 53:20
The Lord expects that we will be good people, clean and decent, and rise above all the sins of the world, and stand tall and strong, and live the gosptel in its fullness. He expects us to conduct ourselves in such a way as to bring honor and respect to His great cause and kingdom. He expects us to live the gospel as those who have taken upon themselves a great and solemn and wonderful covenant.
-Gordon B. Hinckley

They can take my material posessions but that's all they can take

They can't take away my family's love and support
They can't take away my testimony&faith
They can't take away my dignity
They can't take away my hope
They can't take away my happiness
They can't take away my true friends
They can't take away my future
They can't take away my dreams
They can't take away my ambition
They can't take away my goals
They can't take away my talents
They can't take away my ability to love again


Law represents the effort of man to organize society; governments, and the efforts of selfishness to overthrow liberty. Henry Ward Beecher
That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that's pretty important. Martin Luther King, Jr.
