Forgiving others…

Here is a video that I found from LDS.org that I would like to share.

Happy Father’s day (2018)

I am so grateful that I have a dad that provides and has love for his family…I know there are people out there who are fatherless, and if you may be one of them, always remember that you have a father up above who is God.

Here is a Father’s Day video made by the Church way back in 2009.

As you can see a father can really have an influence on a family, and when a father does what God designed them to do, then fathers and their families will always receive bountiful blessings.

When Do You Pray?

Have you ever thought about when you pray?

Check this video out about when other people pray. Think about when you pray as you watch the video. Do you pray for the same reasons the people in this video pray?

 

For me, I pray when I feel sad, lonely, thankful; when I’m having a bad day, searching for an answer, or when I’m concerned about a friend or family member. The list goes on! I am so thankful for prayer!

Remember: Sister Carol F. McConkie said that, “Prayer Is a Gift From God.” God gave us this gift of prayer and wants to communicate with us!

So when do you pray? If you feel comfortable sharing, I would love to hear some of your responses to this question in the comments below!

Looking deeper into what we say in the Young Women’s theme – “We are Daughters of our Heavenly Father”

What does the phrase “We are daughters of our Heavenly Father” mean that we recite from our Young Women’s Theme? Why would it be the very first thing we say?

A Young Woman’s worth is seen in two very different ways by God and the world.

World

The world tells us you need to be popular, look a certain way, etc. You have to wear the latest trends, and do worldly things to be seen as beautiful. You have to have a perfect body and compete with models from magazines that have been airbrushed and touched up. Your worth comes from who you know, what you own, and how many likes you get on social media.

God

God sees our hearts and our eternal worth. Who we have always been, not just some momentary physical status. He rejoices when we are kind, loving, meek, humble, gentle, and virtuous.  He sees a different beauty than the world does. Our Eternal Father looks upon the beauty of our heart and soul. Our worth is infinite and divine and NOTHING can replace us! He sees us as Princesses soon to be Queens – heirs of His Kingdom.

 “You are truly royal spirit daughters of Almighty God. You are princesses, destined to become queens. Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your “once upon a time” is now.”

-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The world is wrong. You are beautiful just the way you are! God loves you with infinite love!

  WE ARE DAUGHTERS of our Heavenly Father, who loves us, and we love Him. WE WILL “STAND as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places” (Mosiah 18:9) as we strive to live the Young Women values, which are:

FaithDivine NatureIndividual WorthKnowledgeChoice and AccountabilityGood Works Integrity • and Virtue

WE BELIEVE as we come to accept and act upon these values, WE WILL BE PREPARED to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.

 

We are truly daughters of our Heavenly Father…Always remember that!
