Preparing for the coming days...

Watch this short and powerful video clip from Prophets which teach us to prepare for the days ahead.

We have been warned and forewarned.
The Lord desires to bless us but can do so only if we are obedient to His instructions.

As I ponder and study about the times ahead (some of which we are already in) I am grateful for the peace which has come by way of the Holy Spirit and from my own personal preparations.

"If we are prepared, we need not fear".
But...we need to be prepared!!!

Here's hoping that we are all doing so!!!

Mine Errand from the Lord - Valedictorians in Life

I've been pondering about these words (and meaning) for the past several weeks. Then, I came across a new book by Elder Boyd K. Packer by the same name; Mine Errand from the Lord.
It's what I desire to obtain -- and know that many of you feel the same way.

Here is a powerful quote that I found in it. It's definitely worth sharing and reminds us all of what matters most. For that info. I am eternally grateful.

The real valedictorians in mortality
"There are members across the world that live out their lives in obscurity, and they end up the valedictorians in mortality. I know we look at those that are great and are well paid and highly acclaimed, but when you get across the veil (and we know a little about what is there) the real valedictorians in mortality will be just what the prophet said, a man and a woman living together in love and raising a family under ordinary circumstances, doing the best they can with what they have got, wondering why someone else had the prominence and the good fortune, and ending up finding out that they had it all."

Gifts or Words?

"No gift purchased from a store can begin to match in value to parents some simple, sincere words of appreciation. Nothing we could give them would be more prized than righteous living for each youngster." Pres. Spencer W. Kimball
