“Are these perilous times? They are. But there is no need to fear. We can have peace in our hearts and peace in our homes. We can be an influence for good in this world, every one of us.” From #PresHinckley’s http://pinterest.com/pin/24066179228827332 Oct. 2001 #LDSconf http://facebook.com/223271487682878 address http://lds.org/general-conference/2001/10/the-times-in-which-we-live (less than a month after the tragic events of Sept. 11th). #sharegoodness
Classical School Reading List: Grades 1-8 (I love book lists. Here there are some we've read and lots to get from the library. I'd love to make time for myself to read all the books in the 6-8 grade list! Wow, do kids in public school have to read these books?)
“Don’t be gloomy. Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face. Look a little deeper for the good. [Life is about] joy,… something to be happy and excited about. Love life.” –Gordon B.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, “Gifts to Bring Home from the Mission Field,” Liahona, Mar 2007, 22–24: "These are 10 gifts that I would hope every missionary would bring home with him or her—not a lot of tinsel, not a lot of dolls, not a lot of rugs or furs or dresses or plates, but these great, enduring, wonderful things. God bless you to keep the faith, and while doing so, enjoy with great happiness that which you are called to do."
