I loved reading this talk tonight. Lots of stuff I need to remember and do. "We have every confidence that earth and hell will not overtake you, but it will require that you move from your current plateaus and climb to higher ground." Jack A Goaslind (November 1995 Ensign)
Marriage it is more than the money two people pay for a wedding. It is the unification of two souls in one in which they look to work together to achieve sanctification, for a man greatest mission is to take his family to heaven. Meet a lady willing to walk the path of salvation with you.
"Every Christian should find for himself the imperative and incentive to become a saint. If you live without struggle and without hope of becoming a saint, then you are Christians only in name and not in essence. But without holiness, no one shall see the Lord, that is to say they will not attain eternal blessedness. It is a trustworthy saying that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners (I Tim. 1:15). But we deceive ourselves if we think that we are saved while remaining sinners. Christ saves those sinners by giving them the means to become saints."
(St. Philaret of Moscow, Sermon of September 23, 1847)
I recently talked to my bishop and he shared this verse with me and made the analogy of a "playbook."
In volleyball there's a very simple "playbook" method of scoring: pass - set - hit. Then you score.
He said to prepare to have the spirit with us we must: pray morning and night - fast once a month - exercise faith (read scriptures, go to church, etc.) - learn. Then you have glory and order. .
I'm turning a new leaf today and I'm going to be posting on this account daily to keep me accountable and help anyone who wants it.
Please feel free to discuss or encourage others in the comments. I'm looking forward to it! -SG
Don't think I forgot about Meal Plan Monday! I'm really excited for this one 😋 I'm heading into week 2 of following the Core de Force Hybrid calendar. It works perfectly for me because I get to experience other workouts (I did Insanity one day last week 😅 I forgot how hard it is!) in addition to CDF and helps me not get bored!
What's on your menu this week?
So today I stood up for a kid being bullied on Snapchat. After posting about it, I was followed by a few others who decided to stand up for the same cause. I got a ton of messages asking about how they could help. It felt so great to have started all of this, and to help someone out. I'm glad I #stoodup

And to bring a knowledge of the Savior to your family, your loved ones, and your friends. ...
I've noticed a few of the polygamist girls (from Colorado City) checking me out around Cedar City since they moved to town. It's kind of interesting...to say the least! ;) Apparently a bunch of them are moving into #CedarCity , by the thousands, because they are getting booted out! These folk have always been kind to me when I needed help so I feel for 'em! They're not that different from my own ancestors who practiced polygamy in the recent past. On another note, I'm finally moved into a new room and working full throttle on the UFO Fest. This is just a quick iPhone #Selfie ... Happy Memorial Day! #tbirdnation#utahphotographer#utah#utahboy#ldsboy#mormon
Semana 22 - Permanezcan Firmes ¡Permanezcan en el bote y sujétense!
M. Russell Ballard
Conferencia General, Octubre 2014
Nuestra vida consta de un viaje de aprendizacre y crecimiento personal, donde siempre existirán aquellas tormentas y desafíos, al igual que las innumerables bendiciones y gozo al obedecer, pero ¿de que manera podemos mantenernos firmes a pesar de las dificultades?
Y de igual manera, como miembros De la Iglesia sabemos que muchos han decidido bajarse del bote, ¿que espera el señor de nosotros para ayudar a otros?

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20 #lds#mormon#christian#sharegoodness
🎉HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY🎉 I'm very thankful and proud of my brother and all the men and women who are fighting and have fought bravely to protect our Nation's freedoms. Every laugh, smile, hot dog and hamburger is enjoyed in the honor of our armed services and veterans. #happymemorialday
Happy feast of St. Theodosia, venerable-Virgin-Martyr of Tyre, who, on seeing some martyrs led to their execution, asked them to pray for her. She was seized, tried, tortured, and cast into the sea A.D. 308, in the reign of Constantius and Galerius, Emperors.
St Theodosia, pray for us.
