General Conference 2016

I love finding memes online with quotes from General Conference. Here is one of my favorites:

Other prophets have also commented on the Word of Wisdom:

Elder Richard G. Scott:
Do you scrupulously avoid the use of stimulants and substances that conflict with the intent of the Word of Wisdom, or have you made some personally rationalized exceptions? (General Conference, Priesthood Session, Oct. 2008)

Ezra Taft Benson:

We need a generation of young people who, as Daniel, eat in a more healthy manner than to fare on the “kings meat”—and whose countenances show it. – (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson , p. 476-477.

Harold B. Lee:

The Lord’s word of wisdom . . . counsels the simple diet of fruits, grains and vegetables in season, with meats used sparingly, has been given you as a revelation of God’s great law of health. . . . (The Teachings of Harold B. Lee, p. 205-6)

George Albert Smith: 

(In the summer he ate no meat, and even in the winter months he ate very little.) Let me plead with you, search the Word of Wisdom prayerfully. Do not just read it, search it prayerfully. Discover what our Heavenly Father gave it for. He gave it to us with a promise of longer life and happiness, not if we fail to observe it, but if we observe it.

How Great Thou Art

I just want to add to this song that I know my Savior lives and loves me. I am grateful for a Heavenly Father who watches over me. I am grateful that He sent His Son to walk with men/women, and that we have a Comforter in the Holy Ghost, who, at times, was my constant companion. I don't know where I would be without His Amazing Grace.

Thankful Always

I wrote a post a few years ago about how thankful I am. You can read it HERE.

Let me add, that I still think I am the most blessed person by my Heavenly Father. And I am thankful for the sacrifice of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Without His Atonement, where would we be?

Have a Great Thanksgiving!

Singing in the Tabernacle with "We Also Sing"

I was privileged to sing again in the Tabernacle on Temple Square
with the singing group We Also Sing. What a wonderful experience. It wasn't 
even on my bucket list when I moved here to Utah. How could I have known
to put it on my list? Just blessed.

Though it rained before and during the performance, I was able to get
a few shots of the beautiful tulips blooming everywhere on the grounds.
Happiness in abundance.

1 Nephi 1: 1, 3

...therefore I make a record of my proceedings in my days.
And I know that the record which I make is true; and I make it with mine own hand; and I make it according to my knowledge.
