Following Christ


I love this quote by Elder Dallin H. Oaks.

Please feel free to share in the comments what this quote means to you.



It is never too late


This is a beautiful quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf.

It truly is never too late to repent and be forgiven. Satan likes to lie and say, “Oh it is too late to go back.” when really it is NEVER TOO LATE. So if there is anyone out there maybe that you know that has gotten off their path, don’t lose hope, because they may one day return and go through the repentance process – just keep praying for him/her.


Do service for others when you’re feeling down

I love this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley, because it is totally true! Whenever I get sad, if I help my mom or get some big projects done, I always feel so much better.

Wear your earbuds and listen to some positive tunes while you work. I say positive because you’d be surprised how many songs are actually kind of negative and may be contributing to your sadness. Another thing that can help is to read scriptures and have daily prayer! When you open up your heart to God, He pours out even more love, and comforts you when you are feeling sad. So I challenge us all, when we start to feel melancholy, to immediately do some service for someone to brighten up their day – and who knows maybe they weren’t having a good day either, but then you just made their day and yours! Now that is a win-win situation 😉



Assume the best in every situation


I love this quote by Jeffery R. Holland.

We tend to think “what if this happens” and sometimes bring what we fear upon ourselves. Instead of saying “what if” imagine what you want your outcome to be…In other words, assume the best and doubt the bad. To be honest, I say “what if” a lot, and I know I need to work on this as it only brings stress/worry which doesn’t help the situation at all; in fact, it probably makes it a lot worse. So I encourage all of us in those trying times, to choose not to stress, and instead trust in God that it will be ok.



5 by 5 Rule – Things Will Work Out

A lot of times in life some things that are actually really simple or unimportant or not that big of a deal can stress us out. I speak from experience…I have had multiple times where I’ve stressed out about something and then later afterwards I wondered why I didn’t just chill.

I came across this saying or quote that says “If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes upset by it”

President Gordon B. Hinckley said “Be believing. Be happy. Don’t get discouraged. Things will work out.”

This is easier said  than done, but I’d like to challenge you all this week to remember this 5 by 5 rule and the words of Gordon B. Hinckley. Whenever something stressful comes up or you get worked up about something that’s not that big of a deal, try to remember these good words of advice and incorporate it into your situation whether its in school, decisions, opportunities, etc. Know that things will work out as long as you believe, stay positive, and are trying to follow Christ.
