I’ll go where you want me to go…

This is a video that I watched for my seminary assignment. It’s a really powerful video because it shows that when you help someone you can teach them the gospel just by being an example. It actually made me tear up a bit, so I thought I should share it with you all since it’s an older video, and you might’ve not seen it yet…Enjoy!

Comment below if you had any experiences before where you helped someone that led them to the gospel.

There is this song that I have been listening to for a little while now and I thought I should share it on Marigold Girls…Enjoy!

I really like this song because it has so many true factors in it. 

Ask yourself: Am I sharing the light that is inside of me?  Am I being my authentic self? When other people see me, do they see Jesus? 

There is a quote that I love and it says:


Turn that frown upside down girl! You never know which day is your last…Live like you only have a few hours left!

Get Back Up Again (Trolls movie) what can we learn from it? 

From the movie Trolls by DreamWorks, which came out last year (2016), there is a song from it called, “Get Back Up Again”. The girl troll in the music video is named Princess Poppy. Trolls are happy little creature who sing, hug, and party. Princess Poppy’s friends are captured by a bergen who is going to give them to the bergen king to eat. The Bergens think that if they eat a troll it will make them happy. In the music video Princess Poppy is journeying to the Bergens’ land to save her friends. Watch the video and think about how it can apply to you.

What a fun music video! “Get Back Up Again” is one of my favorite songs. Did you find anything that could apply to you in the video? One of the messages the song has is to not give up.  Princess Poppy is trying to stay positive even when dangerous creatures attack and things aren’t going so well. We can learn from her example that even when things aren’t going well or not the way we want them to be, we should stay positive and get back up again. Don’t give up. When toddlers fall down when they are learning to walk, they get back up, they keep trying. Jesus Christ made a way for us to get back up again. Christ’s Atonement helps us to get back up. When we make mistakes we shouldn’t give up. We should get back up again by repenting and then trying to do better.  When are times you have got back up again?

How Firm A Foundation!

This is a very popular hymn and has a good message. One of my favorite verses in it is Verse 5:

When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie, My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply. The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design Thy dross to consume, thy dross to consume, Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.

Gold is usually found in little flecks spread throughout plain stone. The gold must be purified, or refined, before it can be used in jewelry or other things. To do this, it must be heated to a very high temperature in what is called the “refiner’s fire”. When it gets hot enough, the impurities (also called “dross”) separate from the gold and you are left with beautiful, perfect gold!

Sometimes in life the Lord sends us through a refiner’s fire. This is a time when life gets really hard, and we wonder how we can make it through all the painful, stressful, and sad things that happen at this point. We might even ask the Lord, “Why are you doing this to me? I am afraid I will lose my testimony, even though I’m trying my best!” But the Lord knows how much heat you need to melt all the dross out of you, and He knows how much heat will be too much. He will not let you lose your testimony if you are trying your best to keep it.

When you have come through your refiner’s fire, you will be beautiful, perfect, shiny gold without any dross or imperfections left in you. The Lord loves you! He can see the gold in you, and He knows how to make it perfect!

Here is a video that has to do with the same topic (but with a different analogy):

Hymns – For Comfort, For Praise

The Lord has said that His soul “delighteth in the song of the heart”. I love to sing and play the hymns. There’s pretty much a hymn for everything!

When you feel like fighting for Heavenly Father and standing for “truth and righteousness”, there are hymns like “We Are All Enlisted”, “Called to Serve”, and “Let Us All Press On”.

When you feel selfish, a dose of “Because I Have Been Given Much” can help you out; when you’re just feeling alone and far from God, “I Need Thee Every Hour” or “Nearer My God to Thee” are fantastic.

My great-grandmother, Erma, was 13 when her mom died. Things got very hard for her – she was the oldest daughter and had to do all the housework. Even when her father remarried and she didn’t have to do so much anymore, her stepmother was not very kind to her and her father ignored her much of the time.

Erma became very depressed, and cried herself to sleep each night. One evening, when the sadness became overwhelming, she asked Heavenly Father what she could do to stop feeling so sad. She then got the inspiration to run downstairs, get the hymnbook, and sing herself to sleep with the hymns. She did this every single night for a very long time. Finally, she was able to overcome her depression with the help of hymns and Heavenly Father. She lived a long, happy life and always remembered what the hymns had done for her.

What are your favorite hymns? What hymns have helped you in hard times?
