Got some custom mission prints with flag requests that challenged me a bit tonight....but I love how this pushes me to really refine some of my design skills I don’t use as often. Yay! BTW, Arizona, you’ve got a great lookin’ flag. I love it.💛
Hoy lunes 10 de diciembre se realizaron 2 Noches de Hogar simultáneas, en casa de La Familia Marichales y la Hna Miriam Luz, en el marco de La Iniciativa de Navidad #iluminaelmundo #lighttheworld
entre las dos asistieron 4 Amigos No Miembros de La Iglesia

✨God doesn’t have a 2nd or 3rd rate life in store for you. Not 4th, 5th, 10th, 100th, etc. You are His child! He isn’t in the business of doling out secondhand blessings or leftovers to His children.
During my Sunday School lesson yesterday, we were talking about how sometimes it’s hard to hear the will of God and align it with our will. Why is that?
For me, it comes down to trust. I think I know best. Or that God just doesn’t understand me or what I need. Or that life is too hard. Or that my own plans are really what I need/want. And that’s when my strong will gets angry. And I stop praying. Or I yell in my prayers. And I feel like God doesn’t love me if He isn’t giving me everything I want, exactly when I want it.
But God loves us perfectly! Infinitely! There is no reason He would want anything less than the VERY best for our life. It’s not like God is shopping for gifts, but the store is sold out and we just get whatever was left in stock. So I need to trust Him more!
Life never goes the way we want it to. I can’t think of a person whose life went perfectly according to their plan. Mortality & earth can hit us with a ton of bricks sometimes and demolish everything. That’s just part of the deal down here. Other times, God asks us to change plans without warning. Either way it happens, He knows what’s coming. He can make messes into masterpieces.
It’s hard to trust and have faith and wait, but we don’t have to wonder about His intentions & love for us. God is in our corner the whole way.❤️❤️❤️

I’m really grateful for the temple in my life. It has been a source of strength and source where I can go and feel peace and love from my Savior. #sharegoodness
The beautiful San Antonio Temple.
"Nous pouvons, avec confiance, nous fixer le but de rendre cette période de Noël plus lumineuse que la dernière et chaque année qui suivra plus brillante encore. Les épreuves de la condition mortelle peuvent devenir plus dures mais, pour nous, les ténèbres ne s’épaissiront pas si nous nous concentrons exclusivement sur la lumière qui se déverse sur nous lorsque nous suivons le Maître. Il nous dirigera et nous aidera sur le chemin qui monte vers le foyer auquel nous aspirons." --Henry B. Eyring #lds #ldsquotes #ldschurch #jesuschrist #christmas #noel
I always wanted to be an author. Little books like this help me live out my dream. I’m currently working on a few different projects centered on the existence and nature of God (in “Mormon” thought). When you buy “The Deep Divine” you’re helping me reach my goals. Check it out @ amazon.com (IF you’ve read it, go leave it a review ☺️)
I’ve prayed so hard over Mason’s baptism on the 29th. He’s in a unique position because as his mother, I’ve been where he’s at AND I’m being rebaptized with him. His baptism is almost feels like a gift I’m giving as I’m planning it. What can I ask for/give him that I needed nine years ago at my own baptism? From my own experience with resigning, what is the utmost importance to sustaining Mason’s walk within the Church?
I decided to forgo the usual topics given at baptism (Holy Ghost, Baptism, etc). I’ve realized everything hinges on two things-
1. Mason needs to know his identity in God. He needs to understand his worth is found solely in Christ and nothing else. Opinions don’t matter...even his own.
2. Mason needs to understand what it means to live consecrated life in the fallen world around him.
Identity in Christ. Courage to live his convictions. Everything else falls under those two things.
I’ll be giving my testimony at the end. As his mother, it’s important for him to see and hear my own struggle with courage to live my convictions, believe in my Christ-given identity and by the Grace of God, come out the other side. I’ll be a clear mess meaning I’ll probably cry a lot. But if ya’ll are ok with my emotions, I am too.
I’m opening it up for all to celebrate with us.
11am on 29 December.

Los Elderes Mortenson y Gibeault explican como sabemos si somos exitosos en nuestras propias vidas.
“My biggest takeaway from this experience was how much these refugees are just like us.... they are not defined as being only refugees.”
Whenever I hear or sing or play this hymn, I think of my grandma Pew.
She was a short, cheerful, loving, firecracker of a grandmother. Though she barely reached 5 feet tall, she was a towering powerhouse of a woman with the most intense love for and testimony of the Savior.
She NEVER missed an opportunity to testify to her grandchildren of the Savior.
Click here to read about why this hymn reminds me so much of her.

❤️E deu à luz seu filho primogênito, e envolveu-o em panos, e deitou-o numa manjedoura, porque não havia lugar para eles na estalagem.
Ora, havia naquela mesma comarca pastores que estavam no campo, e guardavam durante as vigílias da noite o seu rebanho.
E eis que o anjo do Senhor veio sobre eles, e a glória do Senhor os cercou de resplendor, e tiveram grande temor.
E o anjo lhes disse: Não temais, porque eis aqui vos trago novas de grande alegria, que será para todo o povo.
Pois hoje, na cidade de Davi, vos nasceu o Salvador, que é Cristo, o Senhor.❤️ #jesuscristo #lighttheworld #lighttheworld2018 #lds #nativity #sud #ldschurch #natal #ldsbrazil #liahona #liahonabrasil
Hi Group, In Mormon 8:1-11, (400-421 AD), Moroni recorded the final demise of his people at Cumorah, an avoidable tragedy. His father, Mormon, sadly, was killed by the Lamanites. Imagine Moroni's sadness, being the last known living Nephite. He obediently wrote on the abridged records his father Mormon had given him. The Lamanites warred with one another, blood shed was rampant and all society was godless, except for the 3 translated Nephite disciples who remained to minister. In V12-32, Moroni wrote about the Book of Mormon, which would come forth in the latter days. He proclaimed that those who would read it and not condemn it would be given greater things. The Book of Mormon was hidden up and was not to be sold for gain. Only one, who would be chosen by God, (Joseph Smith), would retrieve them, and they would shine forth. Any mistakes in the record would be man made. Those who judge rashly will be judged the same way. Those who seek to destroy God's work or His covenant people will be hewn down. We are to search Isaiah's prophecies, (also found in the B of M). The Lord will remember his covenants with Israel. Moroni saw the last days days and noted: The prayers of the righteous will be heard when Christ comes again. It will be a time of wickedness, secret combinations, spiritual darkness, prideful gain-seeking churches, natural disasters, wars, pollutions, murders, and sinfulness. Sound familiar? In V32-41, Moroni chastened the wicked and perverse, stiffnecked civilization in the latter days. He exhorted all people to heed prophetic revelations, for great and marvelous things would take place before the coming of the Lord. He prophesied that in the latter day worldly churches would pervert the word of God, and be ashamed to take upon His name. They would turn away the sick and the needy and shun eternal happiness for the praise of the world. God’s sword of vengeance would hang over the wicked in the latter days. (CONT IN NEXT COMMENT)

"Debemos esforzarnos por obedecer todos los mandamientos y prestar mucha atención a aquellos que más nos cuestan cumplir. El Señor estará a nuestro lado, asistiéndonos en nuestras necesidades y flaquezas, y si manifestamos un deseo sincero, y actuamos en consecuencia, entonces Él hará “que las cosas débiles sean fuertes”.
La obediencia nos dará la fortaleza para reaccionar frente al pecado. También debemos entender que la prueba de la fe a veces requiere que obedezcamos sin conocer los resultados.
Les sugiero una fórmula que nos ayudará a perseverar hasta el fin:
1. Diariamente orar y estudiar las Escrituras.
2. Semanalmente participar de la Santa Cena con un corazón quebrantado y un espíritu contrito.
3. Pagar nuestros diezmos y cada mes nuestras ofrendas de ayuno.
4. Cada dos años, cada año para los jóvenes, renovar la recomendación para el templo.
5. Durante toda nuestra vida servir en la obra del Señor.
Que las grandes verdades del Evangelio puedan afianzarse en nuestras mentes, y que podamos mantener nuestra conducta libre de fisuras, que nos impiden navegar en el mar de la vida con seguridad.
El éxito, a la manera del Señor, tiene un precio, y no existe otra alternativa que pagarlo para poder obtenerlo."
Véase el discurso del Elder Claudio D. Zivic en la conferencia de abril de 2018, "El que persevere hasta el fin será salvo."
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
8 Y había pastores en la misma región, que velaban y guardaban las vigilias de la noche sobre sus rebaños. 9 Y he aquí, se les presentó un ángel del Señor, y la gloria del Señor los rodeó de resplandor; y tuvieron gran temor. 10 Pero el ángel les dijo: No temáis, porque he aquí os doy nuevas de gran gozo, que serán para todo el pueblo: 11 que os ha nacido hoy, en la ciudad de David, un Salvador, que es Cristo el Señor. 12 Y esto os servirá de señal: Hallaréis al niño envuelto en pañales, acostado en un pesebre. 13 Y repentinamente apareció con el ángel una multitud de las huestes celestiales, que alababan a Dios y decían: 14 ¡Gloria a Dios en las alturas,y en la tierra paz, buena voluntad para con los hombres!

My beautiful daughter performed with BYU’s famous Vocal Point! They did an amazing job. Two of the songs they performed were arranged by my #doterra
upline James Stevens. One of them, Nearer My God to Thee, they got a standing ovation during the middle of the performance!!!! It was glorious! McKay Crockett (fourth picture) is the Vocal Point director and a friend of mine. Feeling super blessed to be so held by these amazing friends and these amazing times. Tallie would have sung too if it weren’t for her dang knees! She will be back soon! We have been so very blessed! #pinkessentialoils #byuvocalpoint #nearermygodtothee #lighttheworld
A year ago, yesterday, Misi and I had the blessing of going through the temple together for the first time, after a very long wait. This was the happiest day of our lives (happiest being an understatement)— when Misi was full fellowshipped back into the church and all blessings were restored to him again. Sweet memories like seeing him pass the sacrament, give talks in church, and sit next to me in the celestial room remind me of what I have to be grateful for this Christmas season. Jesus Christ has made all things possible for us. He has made our family possible! He is the reason I keep going every day. He is the glue that keeps our family together. I am grateful for my Savior and I know that He lives.
