Begin Teaching Children When They Are Young

November 8, 2010

 

“A wise parent would never miss a chance to gather children together to learn of the doctrine of Jesus Christ. Such moments are so rare in comparison with the efforts of the enemy. For every hour the power of doctrine is introduced into a child’s life, there may be hundreds of hours of messages and images denying or ignoring the saving truths.”Henry B. Eyring, “Teaching True Doctrine,” Ensign, Apr. 2009, 6–7

So it begins

November 8, 2010

Well in the next couple of day I should get my glucose monitor, and prescription for my diabetes. We were already working on improving our diet, and I have been slowly losing weight,but now we have to turn it up a notch.

Of course eating healthy is a good thing and it appears at this time with diet and oral medication we can keep this under control and possibly  as my weight continues to come off, I could go to a diet and exercise for  control program, and stop having to take the oral medication, but only time will tell

You Are Not Alone

November 8, 2010
“There are those among you who, although young, have already suffered a full measure of grief and sorrow. My heart is filled with compassion and love for you. How dear you are to the Church. How beloved you are of your Heavenly Father. Though it may seem that you are alone, angels attend you. Though you may feel that no one can understand the depth of your despair, our Savior, Jesus Christ, understands. He suffered more than we can possibly imagine, and He did it for us; He did it for you. You are not alone.”Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Your Happily Ever After,” Ensign, May 2010, 126

Priesthood Power as a Shield

November 8, 2010

 

“Now, fathers, I would remind you of the sacred nature of your calling. You have the power of the priesthood directly from the Lord to protect your home. There will be times when all that stands as a shield between your family and the adversary’s mischief will be that power. You will receive direction from the Lord by way of the gift of the Holy Ghost.”Boyd K. Packer, “The Power of the Priesthood,” Ensign, May 2010, 9

Fast Offerings

November 8, 2010
“The concept of fast offerings appears as early as the time of Isaiah when, speaking of the true fast, he encouraged people to fast and ‘to deal thy bread to the hungry, and . . . bring the poor that are cast out to thy house’ (Isaiah 58:7). The Prophet Joseph instituted the practice of collecting fast offerings for the poor in Kirtland, Ohio; and later at Nauvoo, Illinois, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles sent a general letter to the Church defining ‘the principle of fasts,’ stating: ‘Let this be an ensample to all saints, and there will never be any lack for bread: When the poor are starving, let those who have, fast one day and give what they otherwise would have eaten to the bishops for the poor, and every one will abound for a long time; and this is one great and important principle of fasts approved of the Lord. And so long as the saints will all live to this principle with glad hearts and cheerful countenances they will always have an abundance’ (History of the Church, 7:413).”Thomas S. Monson, “Be Thou an Example,” Ensign, Nov. 1996, 45–46

Family Prayer Is Indispensible

November 8, 2010

 

“With the influences of evil that surround our children, can we even imagine sending them out in the morning without kneeling and humbly asking together for the Lord’s protection? Or closing the day without kneeling together and acknowledging our accountability before Him and our thankfulness for His blessings? Brothers and sisters, we need to have family prayer.”Neil L. Andersen, “Prophets and Spiritual Mole Crickets,” Ensign, Nov. 1999, 17

McMullin, “Our Path of Duty,” Ensign, May 2010, 13
